Bottle thanks to Santa. Little older than I like my hoppy beers but it held up decent t. Pours out black with a small tan head. Aroma is of roast, chocolate, sweet syrup, bitter citrus and grassy hops, light soy sauce. Taste is solid, muted citrus and grassy hops, chocolate, toasted malt, roast, a decent bite of bitterness still.

llcooldave (1227) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2015
Pours a respectable black with a touch of ruby in it. Aroma is amazing... dark chocolate, some espresso and a touch of smoke rounds out the awesome nose. Somewhere though, there is a bit of sweet citrus playing in the nose. Clean flavor of citrus and pine followed by dark roasted malt and smokey cocoa. Overall, this was really pleasurable to drink.

ben4321 (7023) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Location: Draft at Amos Howard, 1/4/15

Aroma: It has a light roasted malt and light hop aroma, feels a hint dull, but not bad.
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a creamy head on top.
Flavor: It has a clean, balanced flavor, with a light roast, and a light bitterness as well.
Palate: This one feels a touch thin, pretty easy drinking, with a light dry finish.
Overall Impression: This is an alright Black IPA, not a favorite of mine, but something I didn’t dislike either.
