3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark, opaque, near black with excessive tan head. Aroma a balance of sweet roasted malt and mildly piney, mildly citrus hops. Flavor follows, but ups the hop presence wit bright, bitter grapefruit. A solid, tasty BIPA, but not among my favorites.

This really good looking black beer pour with a thick cream of wheat colored head. It looks like a stout put has that very floral aroma. Blending of hop flavors and coffee stout notes makes this an amazing creation.
