The boys from Chico donít let you down this time either. Loaded with roasted black coffee and an everpresent bitterness that never overpowers. A solid late winter brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another hybrid via Sierra Nevada. Nothing wrong here, just nothing that make me too happy. Very assertive hops, with an odd medicinal note. These black IPAs donít always work. This one is okay.

12 FL. OZ. Bottle. My heels are sore. Painful and aching. My spine hurts. Iím lightheaded. Thatís death sinking in. At some point everything starts dying. The point of no return. When the new growth stops and everything starts winding down. The inevitable cold dark stop awaits us all.
