A dark brown appearance with a beige head. Aroma contains some roasted malt and citrus. Flavor is bitter with some lemons and grapefruit with a bit of toffee showing up. This is how I like black IPAs with malt in the background. Good on ya.

Pint at Tyler’s Apex. Good aroma, sweet. Initial floral scent with a roasty malt scent. Dark orangy brown color, good head and lace. Bittersweet flavor. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Bitter finish. Darn tasty. If you like Simcoe, you’ll like this. Nice hoppy roasty mix.
