Tap@tcbw15. Black. Piney roasty nose. Med bodied, quite nice bittered, roasty citrus flavour. Malty, roasty, some grains. Excellent black ipa, perhaps not on par though with the others theyve shown this weekend.

Draft at Sixgill. Deep dark pour with khaki head. Big citrus hop-driven aroma - blind I’d call this an ipa. Taste brings that coupled with a lot of roast. More on the ipa side of the CDA here. Drinks more like 8% than 10%. Nice way to finish my long day of drinking.

Get punched in the face by an imperial IPA that smooths out like a stout. Don't like getting punched in the face? Go back to your Budweiser.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Lardo. Colour...dark garnet-brown with s thick off white head. Nose...hop resin and hop syrup with crushed hops. Palate...ultra bitter with a tamgy thing that provides some quick tempering to the hop shock. Musky, husky hops follow up as well as earthy-dusty notes. The finish is long and bitter with hints of sweetness.
