CacheManyHose (499) - HONG KONG - JUL 18, 2015
From Braedon, drank at Jay's house. Dark brown with no head. Smells of herbal tea, light soy sauce, floral grassy hop. Tastes of plum, dark fruit, slightly raisiny and sour, spice, herbal grassy hop. Body is thick, slick, a bit acidic. A slightly weird if interesting beer. Good amount of herbal grassy hop but overall too raisiny/sour.

Associated/Cityfresh in Bushwick Brooklyn for $7: Pours black with a beige head. Aroma is pine, herbs, rye, sugar, and some fruitiness. Taste is moderately bitter. Aftertaste is a little sharp, but not too oppressive. Tangy. Full of resin. Medium bodied. It is not a bad black IPA, but it is not really my thing.
