Using a perfect blend of dark roasted malts, and a healthy dose of New Zealand’s Nelson Sauvin hops, this single hop black ale is everything IPA drinkers are looking for and then some.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2016 Draft sample at the bothell brew festival. Pours a jet black with a thin tan head. Odd vegetable aroma. Cabbage like flavor with a roasted feel. Very bitter. I gave these beer a chance two separate times separated by a couple months. Giving the benefit of the doubt, this beer is not for me. UPDATE: one of my favorite things about being on Ratebeer, is my opportunity to give beer a deserved second, or in this case, third chance. Tried again on draft at the brewery. Near black pour with a thick foam head. Heavy hoped aroma and flavor. Subtle roastiness throughout, with a big hop bitter linger. This was undrinkable for me upon my first two tries, but they may have had a batch or two that was off. This one is still far from great, but it was much more enjoyable. Meeting in the middle on the rating, until I will try again. New take on the beer, it is quite interesting.

On tap at Dirty Bucket, pours a near-black with a small tan head. Aroma has some weird vegetal notes - smells skunked. Flavour is horrendous, with vegetal notes, bitter wood and skunk cabbage. This is absolutely atrocious. Another drain pour.

Black with beige head. Smell is resiny hops, coffee, char. Nice hop flavor from the Nelson S. Interesting and good
