Dark pour, almost black, with thick creamy tan head that lasts for days. Robust aromas of tropical citrus fruit, cocoa, and pepper. Earthy, roasted malt taste with vanilla subtleties. Bitter dry finish. Pleasantly surprised by the hop profile for such a rich IPA. Very enjoyable.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Barley-Hoppers. Pours super dark brown, almost black, with a rich creamy off-white head that dissipates quite slowly to leave a good centimeter of foam clinging to the glass. The aroma is of fresh piney hops and bitter chocolate, the taste is bitter hops up front, fresh grain in the middle palate with some lingering sweet malt on the back. Rich mouthfeel and a good effervescence that makes the beer quite drinkable. You can’t go wrong with this one, unless you don’t like black ipas.

Deep black with a thick brown tinged head. Caramel with hints of coffee. Rich malts with some more caramel & chocolate without being sweet & a hint of spice. Not too much bitterness in the finish. A beautiful black beer.
