Brewery says this is made with dark roast wheat malt. Hops are Simcoe and Crystal. Very dark mahogany color in the glass. Less fully carbonated than average; pours with little head. Very fragrant with the spicy and flowery hops. Not particularly bitter, certainly not in the usual IPA sense. I will have to disagree and call this an American Black Ale and it would make a good showing in that category.

At Local Habit in San Diego, where they say they occasionally have a Hess beer on tap, but the brewery is pretty low production for now. Definitely clean and promising beers.
