3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours dark brown to black with a thin tan head. Aroma is dark roasted malt, some coffee and grassy hops. The taste is like a porter with a dry bitterness to it, basically a black IPA. There is nothing to stand this out from any other beers of this style, it is very straightforward yet drinkable, personally I am getting burned out on this style.

Bottle. Dark brown. Pretty malty and not very hopy. Definitely not intense hops like the label says. I’d drink again but can think of several bipa’s I’d grab off the shelf first.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is equal parts hoppy and burnt chocolate malt. Flavor is a little less hoppy but the char of dark malt is still there. This is not intensely hopped as the label says. More of a malt presence here.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ home. Deep brown/black appearance with a tan head. Somewhat citrusy, piney, lightly resiny hoppy, roasty, charred aroma. Light bodied, wheat, roasty malty, piney, citrusy flavor. Kind of a weird combination of flavors going on.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong aroma is quite hoppy with smoky, yeasty and caramel hints. It pours a dark, barely transparent cola brown with a thick and fine-bubbled light tan head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Flavor has a hoppy and slightly bitter core plus smoky and grassy notes and hints of malt and unsweet chocolate. Firm-bodied texture has plenty of fizz and sass.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark red-brown pour with a dark tan head. Aroma- the hops come at you as you pour the beer. Roasted malt is also present. Taste- the hops is more upfrontbut the roasted malt balances it out nicely. Little sweetness. Nice lacing.
