Znakomite ciemne IPA z Colorado. Piana spora ale sredniotrwala. Kolor istnie czarny, gesty i jak Guinness bez przeswitu. Zapach chmielowo-kawowy. Smak to gozka czekolada, gozka czarna kawa, troche orzecha i oczywiscie przerozne chmiele amerykanskie od aromatycznych po zwlaszcza goryczkowe. Polecam bo to swietne Black IPA

Bottled. Poured medium-deep brown with a creamy, well-retained dark tan head. The aroma picked up fresh orange and grapefruit hoppage over toasted caramel and nutty malts.. seemed to be missing a little something, but it was well-balanced. The flavor found toasted caramel and licorice at the core with mostly orange zest bitterness around.. bitter and roasty with a bit of citrus sourness on the finish. Medium-bodied at most on the palate, and a bit slick.. OK feel, but I didn’t love it.

12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Black pour with a medium tan head and good retention. Aroma is smoke, leather, dark malts. Tastes are the same with a lot more mixed in: dark fruit, grapefruit, perfume, citrus peel, coffee. Definitely a worthy sipper, but wouldn’t need it more than once.

Citrusy bitterness that illuminates this black ale and temps the palate with a darkness that only lingers for a moment.
