This is Bull City's version of my homebrew competition winning beer. I will try to check my bias at the door for this review...

It is pitch black, with a creamy tan head. Very hoppy and just enough roastiness to create a very well balanced and drinkable black IPA. Overall a very easy to drink, and one of the best black IPAs I've tried.

I will provide a non-bias review of this beer. It was one of the best black ipa's I have had. Color, taste, mouthfeel, etc. were all spot on. I wanted to try some other beers that night but could not because of this one. I only wish that they would sell their beers in kegs!
