Picked this up in a 4-pack of cans on my recent trip to Des Moines. This beer pours a dark ruby/Black combination with a frothy 3/4” head. Subdue scent of toast and citrus balanced in the aroma. Taste is a great balance of malt and hops. Darker caramels, chocolate, toasted malt, hints of roast along with a firm hop bitterness and floral and fruity hop flavors. This beer is almost as much American stout as it is black IPA. I really enjoy its balance. I think American Black Ale is a good description for this solid beer.

16oz can. Poured out a deep dark brown with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled of roasted malt, coffee and mild chocolate notes. There was also something oddly floral/sweet that I couldn't place. Nice roasted flavor. Not as piney as most Black IPAs.
