This is a solid rendition of a dark/black IPA with some extra wet-hop taste and feel to it, not to mention aroma. I really enjoy the beer, even if it is a style that can't decide on itself. It looks like a porter, tastes like a black IPA, and smells like wet bud (yes, that kind). While I can't really include the can or label art as criteria in the score, that's also pretty great. Well done HA, really like the 2017 version. Different every fall....

22 oz bomber bought at brewery 2 weeks ago. Poured into pint glass. For all that's supposed to be going on in this beer, none of the flavors stand out. Drinkable but disappointingly so.
