look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Poured an 1/2" head that lingered longer than expected.

Smell - Some hop aroma coming through but not a lot, nor was there a strong dark malt sense either. Could have been stronger.

Taste - Much like the smell, not a strong taste of hops or dark malt. Decent taste, just not what I was hoping for

Mouthfeel - A dry finish. Hence the lack of strong hop or dark malt presence left mouth dry.

Overall - A middle of the road black ipa in my opinion. Not terrible, but certainly room to improve.
