L - Black body and a finger of almond-colored head

S - Complex aroma of coffee, chocolate, oranges, pineapple, cherries, pine, and sap

T - A superb balance of both the roast and juicy hops. Pine bitterness throughout with lots of coffee, but orange citrus finishes each sip.

F - Full body and no alcohol. Smooth and crisp texture.

O - Might be the best Black IPA I've ever had. Was able to bring out the best qualities of both the citrus and the roast, but citrus was bigger and helped make drinkability a breeze. This one needs to make a return.
