3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft... Jupiter Craft Brewers Festival 2014... Pours midnight-black with a small, creamy, lightly tanned head. Good retention. The nose features dank, hempen hops and dark, burnt malts. Full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is carbonic and malty but is much more bitter than sweet. Resin-like hop bill. Finishes burnt and bitter. This style doesn’t tickly my taint, but this is good for a black IPA.
