Bottled 3/18/14; drank 4/19/14 @ the Yarchives.

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Brown hue.

Tan head; decent lace.

Milk chocolate & grapefruit nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Roasted coffee & grapefruit flavor; an overly bitter finish. As it warms, a slight pickle juice note emerges. No rush to have another here.

Fantastic Black IPA. I am partial to the style though. The beer pours silky black with white foam that leaves nice lacing. In your face hop aroma with citrus and pine. Some coffee and chocolate on the nose too. Taste is also wonderful. Roasted malts on the front. Coffee and chocolate and then hop explosion. Citrus and pine smoothly balance the sip with a nice crisp dry finish. There are lots of floaties in this beer, but the flavors are phenomenal.

Pours black with a inch a half thick beige head. Citrus (grapefruit), roasted malt, lots of spice (peppery), and some small chocolate notes. Taste of citrus, lots of roasted malts, a bit of chocolate, and a whole lot of peppery spice. Moderate to full mouth feel and a medium body.
