The Collab between DryHob and Begyle was ok....the light mouthfeel was a turn off for me. The beer poured an opaque black with tan head and spotty lace. The scent had some pine and roast. The taste was evenly balanced nothing overpowering. Overall it was ok....little too watery for me.

Batch #85 tasted in Teku glass from a 1 pint 6 fl oz bottle on July 29. 2015. Look is dark brown, medium head and moderate lacing. Smell is piney and fruity hops with hints of dark chocolate and coffee bitterness. Taste is citrus hops, dark roasted malts, some chocolate and coffee notes. Feel is dry and a little bitter.

A deep brown black pour with 2 fingers of dark tan head. Great retention. Smells smoky, Chocolatey, sweet with a hint if grassy hops. Flavor has citrusy grapefruit hops teaming up with a roasty grain profile. Subtle sweetness blending with the hops and charred bitterness. Medium in body, medium carbonation. A pretty decent black ipa, a really tasty beer. Props for naming a beer after a LTJ song.. Haven't heard this in years.

Johnny Quest embodies a dark black hue with a slight opaqueness, virtually blocking any light particles. A fluffy tan head awakens, making the beer appear even more stout-like. Its retention is quite fine, leaving a healthy thin layer even after 5 minutes of rest. The aromatics showcase brilliant pine notes, with subtle nuances of orange peel, grapefruit, mango, baker’s chocolate, caramel, coffee, and cappuccino caressing the nostrils. Pine tries taking control again in the mouth, but is matched by roasted malt bitterness. Juicy citrus bitterness joins mid-palate, with orange zest and grapefruit qualities. The finish is long, bitter, and dry, akin to freshly brewed iced coffee, with subtle hints of dark chocolate, toffee, pineapple, and of course pines. Visually, an empty glass coated in lacing is just as gorgeous as a glass full of beer, which Johnny Quest triumphantly achieves.

Growler from brewery on 1/24/2014.

A: dark with big head which may be due to the growler. The head dissipates fairly quickly.

S: pleasantly hoppy.

T: malty with a strong hoppy undertone and a smoky finish.

M: medium to full body.

O: nice black IPA. Worthy of a try. Not the best but definitely not the worst.
