This is a very good BLACK IPA, but there are better ones on the market.
Served in a standard pint glass. Pours pitch balck with a nice carmel color head. Great aroma of citrus hops to the nose. Taste reminds me alot of Drifter and Brrr with more of a malt backbone.
For a beer for the masses this is a great beer, and thank you Widmer for being the first to get this style to market for everyone to try. I know it is not the first but, it is the first mast market BIPA!
Enjoyed the beer alot, would have another but not a session beer.
Serving type: on-tap

A: The beer is close to being jet black in color—when held up to a bright light, traces of reddish amber are noticeable along with a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high dense tan head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark and roasted malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and has additional hints of citrusy hops and a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation and a slight amount of crispness.
O: This beer drinks very easily although it seemed like it would have been better if the aromas and flavors were a little stronger.
