Tap at the brew pub. Pours a deep coffee brown with a creamy off white head. Nose help light piny hops with a bit more emphasis on the roasty character of the malts. A decent BIPA.

The info about the beer above was given to me by the bartender. She said it was the specific information he wanted given out if someone asked. My rating: Dark brown with red tint. Long lasting dense latte-colored head. Leaves a dense lace. Nose initially roasty to strong pine/citrus hops. Taste, up front big hop bomb. Smooth velvety mouthfeel at first to explosion of high hops. High pine tree to cat pee. Not getting much roastiness at all. Very smooth and lots of bright hoppiness. Very nice brew. Massive sticky mess left in empty glass.
