The beer pours a dark brown color with a thick frothy tan head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is average. It has a dry, roasted/black malt scent along with a mild hop nose. It's pretty tame compared to most black IPAs. The earthy, roasted character is too intense and dwarfs the hops. The taste is average as well. It has a muddled flavor that boasts of earthy black malts and citrus hops. It's bone dry with too much roasted character. The hops sneak through in the finish, but are hidden through most of the drinking experience. The mouthfeel is decent. It is a medium/full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a pretty undrinkable beer. I have enjoyed most of their IPA series, but this one needs a serious tune-up.
