4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Scratch for Weekend of Darkness. Black with tan head and a forest-like aroma of piney hops and oak. The rich taste of Karma Citra works well with the barrique: there’s a lot going on in this one with the interplay between bitterness and malt backbone. I’ve been a big fan since my first bottle and I’m glad to finally find it on tap. Hail to the Chief!

Glass @ GABS 2016, Melbourne
Near-black with tan head.
Good nose - plenty of citrus & pine hop, charred malt, touch of vanilla & toasty oak.
Lovely smooth texture to it. Palate reveals notes of toasty buttery oak amongst big resiny hop notes & mild roast notes. Top notch!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black big tan head. Aroma is amazing - vanilla choc wafer black malt. Taste is the same with some nice bitterness balancing the vanilla sweetness. Great stuff - one of the best black IPAs around.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours black with a large tan head.
Nose shows tropical fruit, soft roasted malt, bready noets and very soft oak.
The roast plays a more dominant role as a flavour, with cocoa and nutty notes. Again, the oak is very soft. some lychee, pine and papaya are present too. Pretty awesome stuff.
Carbonation is perhaps just a little high.
