Brewed with Chris Pandel from The Bristol. A dark yet deceptively light bodied hoppy IPA brewed with Debittered Black malt.

Sampled from the tap at the Clybourn location. Poured a dark brown with a slight red hue and a brown head that that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a combination of light roasted malt and a light pine. Flavor began with sweet roasted malts and was joined by citrus with a hint of backing pine.

Consumed on premise at Goose Island. Poured into a snifter. Was cola colored with a slight head. Aroma of hops and malt. Light bodied with a smooth somewhat oily taste. Tastes of hops and malt. This was a great collaboration. It would be nice to see it bottled!

Full taster pour at gi cly... Pours stouty cola with reddish edges and a thin cream off-white head... Light roast, chocolate, and a piney hop backbone... Flavors are mostly roasty with a medium chocolate profile and finishes on a green citrusy note. Body is somewhat thin.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a very deep brown nearly black with a small off white head. Aroma has some chocolate malt with a touch of toast and burnt caramel with some piney hops. Flavor starts with a sweet bitter cocoa note before opening to a piney and lightly citric hop character. Remains creamy and earthy into a soft hoppy and not overly bitter finish. Medium body and a softer carbonation. Good black IPA, not overly harsh or bitter.....uhhhhhh I just noticed this is listed as an IPA, whoever added this must be wrong. It is an IPA......and it is black, with debittered black malts.........hmmmmmmm Ill rate it as such
