3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber shared at Kane on the Thursday of Memorial Day weekend shared by a BA cool kat. Poured a medium to slightly thinner bodied dark chocolate brown with an average sized dark beige foamy head. Aroma was like a roasted grapefruit along with chocolate, citrus notes, hint of rye spiceyness, dark toast, burnt grains, hot chocolate mix with malts. The body is medium but straddles the line of being on the thin side, carbonation is stronger and overall I wish it had a creamy feel vs the usual bubbly carbonation which this one does. The flavor was solid with a chocolate roasted grapefruit being the first thing to pop in mind, rye seeds and grains along with citrus rinds and even some pine round this one out. Good beer.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops plus a nice amount of dark malts and dough that blend well. Flavor the same with a good amount of hops and dark malts. Average texture. A really good black IPA, although it is just a single IPA. I would like to see what they could do with a double/imperial black IPA.

A solid black IPA. Really stoked on the metal collabs. A pretty standard for the style. This band is fucking horrible.

Brown, leaning red. Gently herbal, spiced meat in aroma - a good amount of weird. The flavor begs for either a lot more or a lot less of the oddness that carries from aroma into the flavor, but never definitively characterizes the beer. An absence of body on the palate, though certainly some hopspice. It’s a beer, but the aroma, flavor, and feel all leave more to be desired, particularly for a black IPA. It feels sacrilegious writing this about a 3F brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very dark brown, almost black with a huge 2 finger frothy head. Moderate lacing. Aroma is very hoppy and bitter with a strong citrus undertone, mainly grapefruit. A slight resinous note is hidden in the mix. Mouth is very bitter up front with roasted malt and a slight citrus bite. A slight booziness to it.

Pours a reddissh-black color with a big, frothy, light tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves decent lacing. Strong citrus, resin, and piney notes, or anything else you can think of to describe hops. Rosted malt begin to show up on the tongue, along with a big hop bite. Nice, easy drinking Black IPA.
