Big thanks to Kevin for sharing this one!
A-pours a brownish liquid with red esges. a light tan colored head is tight with great lace.
S-hint of roasted maltiness, dark chocolate, burnt coffee up front. herbal marijuanna hops come through big time. touch of tea leaves accompany.
T-the taste brings a light roasted malt, hints of smokiness. the herbal hops take over, touch of tea leaves and earthy. a little thinned out in the back.
M-extremely smooth on the palate, lighter body, low carbonation that falls off in the back and is a little thin in boddy.
D-pretty tasty, falls off in the back, the nose was great but the taste falls a little short of that. very earthy and dank like.

Pours darker than their stout. Nice, interesting citrus/pine hop aroma, matched in the flavor, which adds some roastiness. Nice - best on their taplist aside from the IPA.

Bottle shared at the Foothills bottle share... thanks for setting it up, Mike! Nice balance in this one. Moderate chocolate sweetness with the right amount of pine sting. Really drinkable.

Aroma is clove ,caramel, toasted malts, and slight toffee. Taste is rich malts, caramel, tart,clove and fig. Very well balanced. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Tap at Bier Stein. Poured out a cola brown with a light tan head. Aroma of earthy hops and some hefty caramel malts. Flavor pretty much the same, has a hefty malt finish. I don’t know that I’d call this an IPA, but am not 100% sure where I’d categorize it. Either way it was a decent enough beer.

On draught at Hopworks. Deep black with light tan head. Aroma is citrus, dark malt, and roasted smokiness. Taste is dark chocolate, citrus, roasted dark malt. Really well balanced; not too bitter not too sweet. Finishes with a hoppy, toasted character.

Pours deep black. Citrus aroma with some cocoa and coffee. Quite hoppy, but with a mocha malt body. I really like this one. Some grapefruit, some coffee. Works well here.
