3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. can, sent from khoffman43 (thanks Kyle), pours black with a fairly small tan / light brown head. Aroma is super roasted, with dark roasted malt and burnt espresso, atop some harsh citrus hops - lovely nose. Flavour brings out bitter, dry cocoa, dark roasted malt and slightly burnt espresso, with some fairly potent sprucey, piney hops to balance, leaving a super dry and highly roasted, slightly bitter finish. Delicious black IPA - this is how you do them right.
