I've long been a doubter of Shorts Brewing but having tried this offering, I'm a step closer to being a believer. This ale pours a deep rich black (almost stout like) with a very slight tan head and substantial lacing. The nose is perplexing. There are substantial hop notes with a good deal of pine and grass along side those of coffee and carmely roasted malts. Unfortunately there is also something slightly off and skunky in nature. The mouthfeel is smooth and clean. Medium bodied with a nice coating feel. It is actually lighter than I would have guessed it to be. The flavors mirror the nose. With a bitter piney hoppiness upfront followed by a deep coffee/chocolaty malty sweetness. This is damn good and one of the best black ipas I've had. Maybe there is hope for Shorts yet.
