Dark with a thin white head. Got quit a bit of citrus aroma but the first sip wasn’t al that fruity but after a couple of sips the fruit came out. Really great balance with very little alcohol. Did get the a little chocolate on the finish but the finish is also a bit watery.

Near black with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine - very hoppy with a hint of toffee and licorice. Dry, hoppy and bitter flavour with a touch of roasted malt. Lasting pine hoppy aftertaste

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Half Time. Pours black with a creamy 2-finger tan head. Aroma has lots of fruit - including citrus - with some fairly chocolate malt in the background. Med body. Flavor is pretty citrus, and there’s enough hop that the malt doesn’t come through very strongly. Some chocolate seems to pop up in the finish, but this is hoppy and bitter stuff. Might even be a hint of anise. Or not.

Mmmm. Black IPA. I’m glad this is a fad. Dark and creamy. Roasty and malty- almost reminds me of brandy. But yay for the hops all the way through!
