Medium dark coffee brown that has the perfect balance of malt and hops. There is a smooth coffee/toffee taste with a wonderful citrus grapefruit flavor that works amazingly well. One of the best Black IPA’s I have had and possibly the best beer brewed in Middle Tennessee! Try this.

Draft at Flying Saucer Nashville: I'd rate it as a c+ or b- brew. Not very remarkable but solid. If you see other IBA options, I'd take the risk. Solid but not outstanding.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: Caramel and chocolate malts, with hints of floral hops.
Appearance: Inky black, with thick tan head.
Taste: Light-medium sweetness with light bitterness. Very well balanced.
Palate: Full body, thick, slick texture, lively carbonation, long finish.
Overall: This is a very solid beer. A little hoppy in the finish, but not overwhelming. Very tasty and something that I would seek out again.

Called a Black IBA. This hopped up black ale is tremendously balanced with just the right amount of malt presence. Great Hop lingering after a few sips. Possibly Maydays best brew.
