on cask at beer study in chapel hill. pint glass.

this is a mixture between death by hops and black raven, as the name suggests

pours a dark brown with a nice looking head. not quite opaque. smell is slightly hoppy, definitely an IPA but not too pronounced. the taste is smooth, hops are present but not in your face. nice flavor with a good bitter kick at the end. lighter side of medium body, surprising considering the ABV, but that's not a bad thing in this case. very easy drinking beer.

overall a solid IPA from Olde Hickory.
