Pours two fingers of tan head on a dark brown body.
The aroma is a great mixture of roasted malt and pine.
The taste is quite simple compared to the smell: clean pine and lemon bitterness, borderline watery.
The texture is light and crisp.
Great aroma, the taste was lacking but at 4.2% ABV it's not bad.

22oz : mason jar

Pours black with deep brown edges when held to light and a thick, foamy tan head.

Huge citrusy, resiny hops with a faint roasty cocoa backing.

Taste is similar to the aroma, only rated a bit lower as it just wasn't quite as bright and in your face as the aroma.

Medim body, foamy carbonation.

A great Black IPA. A bit spendy for a bomber, but I'm glad I got to try it.

22 oz bottle, no date

pours a dark brown, nice thin off-white head, good head retention. nice mix of earthy hops and a mild roast. taste is okay. light toasted malt flavor, herbal hop flavors, not sure everything mixes well. body is thin to medium, softer carbonation. good mouthfeel.

the name of this beer is pushing the straight face test. okay, just not sure it all works.

Pours a dark brown color in the tall glass with a Very nice aroma of grapefruity hops. Pleasant sudsy mouthfeel that pumps up the low-alcohol body. Every pour give a frothy foam and that same watery refreshing mouthful.

The dark roasted malt is dark and deeply flavored, but overall it feels light on the tongue. There is an acidic tang with the hoppy aromatics. Kind of an explosion of flavor on the tongue. Brewer says this is made with Alchemy, Nelson Sauvin, Amarillo, Summer, and Citra hops. All in all, this is quite a delightful lower-alcohol brew that avoids the harshness of many "session" IPAs.

The aromatics are a pleasant citrus peel note. Thoroughly drinkable. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at QFC in the University shopping center in Seattle.
