thanks to MJC8719 for this super sweet extra! enjoyed from a lawson's tulip.

a - brew poured a watery black with an ipa head. head had a cream colored, almost grey head which hung out forever and left clingy lacing.

s - roasted malt with a smoothed over hopping.

t - nice citric piney hops with good roasted black malt. has a nice base water taste.

m - bitter finish. nice roast, fairly creamy.

o - overall, black ipa is an odd style for me. while i love roasted beers in the stout and porter family and great ipas, crossing the two is odd...but that being said, i dug this one.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Not quite black. Thick off white head. Retains for a long time. Nice lacing.

Smell - Grassy hop. Roasty. Smells nice.

Taste - Way downhill here. Hoppy, but thin, bitter, and grainy. Roastiness very strong, but really intense in every disappointing flavor.

Mouthfeel - Bitter and thin. Well carbonated.

Overall - A second disappointing beer from Lawson's on the night. What the hell.
