On draft as Dark Days. Rich and roast forward, very dense and strong, chewy and heavy. Black, sticky tan head. Loads of piney hops, accented with some citrus notes, little ashy in the finish, love this brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Belmont Station. Medium brown pour, malted aroma, light roast. Wet body, flavors of wet hops, light orange, roast, and malts. Not uber hoppy in any sort of manor as much. Odd take on the style or different style all together? I’d try it again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
More of a black than an IPA. Dark brown with thick white head. Mild aroma hop very present. More of a roast malty flavour, with a hop finish. I really question whether this could be considered an IPA.
