Growler at Paulís for the Blind Stout tasting. Pours a dark ruby tinged brown to black with a thin beige head. Loads of bright citrus hops on the nose, smells awesome. Roasty but subtle still, lots of soft cocoa and a backbone of pithy grapefruit filled citrus. Long roast into the finish with a good amount of bitterness. Lovely stuff.

Growler at Paulís tasting. Pours near black with a beige head. Super dank piney and floral hops, with lighter roasted malts and a hint of sweetness. Really fresh and really damn good.

Pours a medium brown black .. . mild foam .. low lacing .. . odd smell .. . light roast .. . no character, oh well .. . . Youíre just saying that because I said it to you. It doesnít work. It doesnít mean anything.

Tap. Pours clear hazel with a small tan head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is roasty with notes of citrus and pine. Flavor is the same, touch of dankness, bit of coffee, fairly muted. Light sweet, light bitterness growing stronger on the finish. Medium body. Pretty decent.

Draft at the source. Black in color, thin whispy head. Aroma is fresh citrus hops, mild roast, char. Flavor is awesome. Great balance of fresh citrus balanced by a mild roasted grain. Medium body with a lightly bitter citrus finish.

RBSG 2013. Hop aroma with malt and roasted grain. I am not always crazy about the black IPAs, but this one is good. Bitter hops finish.
