Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a pitch black color (no surprises there) with a small creamy tan head. Looks to me like a porter. Smells of caramel and roasted sweetness. Slight herbal and citrus aroma. Taste is great, there's the dark roast qualities of the darker malts along with a nice bitterness with a crisp finish. Slight citrus character in the taste as well. Medium carbonation, with a medium body, this beer goes down easily.
This is a very good beer, I just don't think it has quite enough hop character in it to truly be an IPA. I think it tastes more like a strong porter with slightly more hops in it than normal. Still, good nonetheless and it will stay on my list of beers I'd like to have again.
