Reviewing after the fact. Initially had on draft at the Onion brew pub. Afterwards was able to find 22oz bombers at my local bottle shop that I still need to try. Aroma is citrusy hops with a roasted malt character. Taste follows the nose with citrusy hops, some pine, roasty dark malts, maybe a tad of chocolate in there. Overall I thought this was a pretty solid Black IPA. Tasty and easy to drink. I enjoy Wild Onion’s Hop Slayer from time to time. I enjoyed this one just as much if not more.
