3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very pine grapefruit centric black IPA. I love the grapefruit taste on the palate. For 7.2% ABV, this is a must drink. Very smooth and mellow! Good brew Culture!

>> Deep red pour. Weaker tan bubbles. Solid grilled pineapple nose with flashes of soy and vegetable, grilled fruit skewer. Taste is bitter, nutty, clean bitterness. Palate is chalky, weaker. It’s okay, not great.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark brown-black with a small tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, grassy hops, toasted sweet malts, and some coco. Taste is similar tot he aroma with a little more malts in the finish. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a slightly dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty black IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Culture... Poured dark brown with a moderate tan head. Aroma of mild roast with earthy spiced, pine and citrus-like hops. Same hop characters came in the flavor profile too with charred grains. Drying mouthfeel, a little abrasive at times too. Pretty par for the style.
