A - Pours pitch black with a foamy and bubbly khacki head - lacing is aplenty and head retains to a thin cap that resembles cake batter.

S - Malts, piney, citrus, fruity in the back layers.

T - Heavy malt forward quickly matched by the hop presence. Anise, citrus peel, dry bitter taste lingers on the palate.

O - Solid Black IPA - with a nice balance of malts and hops. I would get it again.

Not a huge fan of this beer....had higher expectations. It poured a opaque black with offwhite head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent carries faint pine and bitterness. The taste is somewhat smokey and weird....it is very strange and I am not a overly huge fan. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with decent carbonation. Nope....won't go buying this one again.....would try it on tap though....just to see if it is better.

pours cola with frothy head, sticky lacing, light retention

faint chocolate and roasted malt. nose was weak

citrus hop and sweet dark chocolate up front. some roasted malt and sweet citrus fruit emerge. some bitterness and stickiness through the finish

light body, mild carbonation

overall good for a lower ABV black citra.
