3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Special release. Sometimes the craft brewers share their pain in the American way. (read the commercial description). Anyway this black IPA smells piney to me, although not in an intense way. It pours dark with a persistent tan lacing. It actually tastes good with some pleasant hoppiness and a smooth finish. I just wish they would let the beer speak longer than the marketing guy. This is not America.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from a can from the brewery. Black with a tan head. Grassy aroma. Taste is surprisingly zesty with flavours of grapefruit skin and pine. The roasted flavours are quite mild and well-blended, giving a pleasant choclatey roundness to the taste. A good flavoursome IPA with an interesting twist.

330ml can. Jet black appearance with a one-two finger tan head. Aroma: citrus hops, grapefruit, malt, pine, some roasty/coffee notes. Taste: exactly as the aroma. Really silky smooth palate, bitter finish. Fantastic beer, love the fact it’s session strength as well.
