Color- Thick black coffee. Medium head tinted light mocha foam.

Aroma- nice roasty IPA.

Taste- Shared this bottle with two friends, and we all at first blush said it reminded us of a roastier, deeper, more complex version of Arrogant Bastard (this analogy is only our starting point). Starts hoppy with a roasty rye malt, then quickly moves into an excellent balance of hops, and finishes with a perfect lingering semi-bitter hop note. A truly excellent brew combining the best of rye and IPA. 80 IBUs

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted on 5/23/2014.
