So I had this on tap at the Local Taphouse as part of their 'Dark Side' makeover. I heard in passing that it was the version brewed at Moylan's but I'm not 100% sure. If I'm wrong please correct me, especially as, well I didn't like it that much.

Pours a red colour, fairly pale. Pale beige head, fairly thin with some decent lace. Looks nice, but pretty light.

Smells like an IPA. Fruity citra-esque hop notes with passionfruit, pulpy mango and orange peel. Decent hops but has no darkness at all.

Thin flavour. Hops are dominant throughout with passionfruit and citrus late. But not much malt or other flavours to balance. Bit of booze heat late, without the sweetness to match. Pretty unimpressive and thin and bland.

Thin mouthfeel. Really thin. For the ABV there's just no presence until the very back. Actually almost impressive how little body there is for the size.

Wow. Have no idea what went wrong here. So much pedigree. Just not showing through.

Poured in a goblet nice dark cream head nice lacing on the glass. The color is coffee black. Mouth feel is sharp with full flavors. The taste is pine nuts burnt wood dark fruits and a nice bitter after taste. There is no strong alcohol in the after taste. One of the better black ipa styles.
