3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at PP Carlsbad. Dark brown pour, with medium sized off-white almost tannish head. Bakers chocolate, light roasted malt, fairly strong presence of rye, grapefruit, and strong citrusy hops. Bitter and dry, does not have a lot of sweet chocolate like many other dark IPAs. One of the better ones.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Andyman event at Bobís Bar on 11/30. Darkest brown/black pour with a thin tan head. Dark malt aroma with some spicy hops, lots of citrus, rye, pine and grass. Rye malt flavor right up front, followed by spicy hops and roast before a bitter citrus finish. Very nice.
