This pours a black cola color with cocoa colored foam.

It's similar to a hoppy porter with grapefruit dankness rounding it out. Like a green hoppy porter.

The aroma has a squeeze of fresh grapefruit mixed with some pine needles.

It's like a burst of grapefruit pine with a bitter finish and a touch of resin with a roast complexity underlying it all.

The beer comes in a dark brown color with a light brown head.

On a 4 month bottle, the hops may have faded a bit, but the balance still stands up. A clean malt quality, without the cocoa chocolate and light coffee roasted overtaking and triggering the creamy and residual sweetness of a porter/stout. Onto a bit of spice, and lingering black coffee flavor.

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.
