Dark brown, hazy, bubbly white head that dissipates
Nose of gtapefruit, soft floral undertones, some pine, mellow dark caramel malts underneath, soft dark malts, good citrus fruity hops
Taste of bitter citrus hops, grapefruit pith, sharp citrus, dark caramel malts background, plenty of hops in this
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, bitter fruity tangy zesty grapefruit finish with soft dark roast malt finish, bitter bit dry slightly salty linger. Palate is a little rough
Overall - Decent BIPA, perhaps the palate just needs to be smoother

Bottle at home on a miserable Sunday, 23rd September 2012, pours a huge soft head that keeps on growing, nice hoppy aroma, taste is delicious and rich, like a kernel black ipa, but richer and softer in mouth, nice stuff

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 31, 2012
[500ml bottle, Trembling Madness bottle shop, York] Black pour with enormous puffy white head, which sits like an ice-cream float before receding gradually. Aroma of lemon citrus, passion fruit and grape, resin and yeast. Extremely bitter, resinous flavour, lemon and grapefruit. Almost biting hop level on the far aftertaste, finishes very dry and bitter. Not much chocolate in evidence - the BJCP would love this, there’s really no indication of it’s colour on the taste. Very nice indeed [31102012]
