From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a January 2014 expiration date. Sampled on October 17, 2013.

The color of the pour is cloudy and medium amber brown with a lingering but small off-white delicate head.

Fascinating aroma. certainly I get plenty of floral and piney hops which is to be expected from from an IPA but I also get a chocolate scent.

The body is in the medium range.

The taste also has this chocolate/cocoa malt character followed by a big hoppy bitterness that lingers at the end.

Nice looking amber orange color in the New Belgium snifter. The foam is quite admirable as well. Decent sudsy mouthfeel. This seems like another well-made brew from Black Diamond.

Bitter twang from the start. A touch of melon, then the pine, and then it's just bitter. Brewer says this has Simcoe, Centennial, and Columbus hops. Some dark toasty flavors with a sharp sensation, but a modest malty richness. Tart finish with a dark, bitter and winey grape-skin taste.

While this has some virtues, it suffers from the usual excess of hops without as much pleasure as you might hope for. The aftertaste is like grapefruit rind on the lips. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Barons Marketplace on Point Loma Blvd.

A - Cloudy orange. 1mm of head which quickly dissolves and not too much lacing.

S - Strong lemon/lime and apple aroma. Smells a bit cidery

T - Apple cider again. Definitely a west coast IPA in style with citrus hops but the "big malt backbone" lends a cloying sweetness that reminds me of all the off home brews I've made

M - Medium/light body and moderate carbonation

0 - The malts kill it for me. The sweetness they impart overpower the hops. This beer is definitely not lacking in flavor, it's just a flavor I don't personally enjoy.
