Served a nice clear black with a sticky tan head with some m
Nice lacing.

The smell was very light with just a touch of roasted barley and a hint of piney hops.

The flavor is a bit simple, light roasted maltyness with a touch of coco followed by a lingering juniper bitterness.

The mouthfeel is a bit thin with a touch of hop oil.

Overall a bit underwhelming, has a severe Lack of dry hoping and late hop additions to be considered any type of IPA.
