On tap at squatters pours out a dark brown topped with a sand head. Aroma of rye, dark roast malts, and some hop notes. Taste hops, roast malts, little bitterness on the end.

Had on draft at the brewery. Pours a very deep brown. The hops are citrusy in the nose. There is a dry roasted malt note, citrus, floral, slight chocolate, and resin. A solid beer. I think a bit more finishing hop character would greatly improve this beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Iím not sure how this should be listed, but the dominant character is pale ale for sure. Pours a deep brown color with a medium light beige head. A nice fruity nose. The flavor is very good with rich fruity hops, light spicy rye, chocolates, low bitterness. Basically a BIPA...or a Black Pale that is!
