Hits the black IPA ying and yang perfectly. Fresh pine and citrus notes from hops offset by smokey chocolate and liquorice from the malt.

mR_fr0g (9220) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle at home from cotteridge wines. Arom is realy big bold sweet, sharp lemon rind and piney hops. There is also some fruit salad, mineral and some slight roast. Clearish dark caramel red pour with a steadfast dense light cream head. Flavour is sweet toffee, berry hop, pine. The finish is ashy roast and big piney clean aggressive bitterness. Some slight soapyness. Fine tingling carbonation dryish fiinish. The bitterness is a bit too much for me.
