3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz Bottle. Light citrus and pine aroma. A very mild and calm start to this beer, with clean Warrior-like hop flavor and some random almost Brown malt textures. A little confused and wandering and definitely light on the hop attack. I appreciate the absence of too much sinamar, a problem with so many Black IPAs. This feels more likely a hoppy stout or English Dark. IPAs nor dark beers have never been my favorite New Glarus pieces and this one keeps that trend the same.

Nice aroma of piney hops and a hint of chocolate. Deep ebony color with a thick tan head that holds up well. First taste....SMOOOOOOTH. Rich, chocolaty malty, hint of coffee, and brown sugar. Then followed by a mellow bitterness that finishes with a blend of sweetness.

Not a big IPA fan but I really enjoyed this. I didnít feel like I had a mouthful of hops for hours like I do with most IPAís. Good balance.
