This is actually a Black IPA. On tap at the brewery, in a pint glass. Color is deep brown, almost black, with a frothy tan head. Aroma of piney hops and roasted chocolate malt. Taste is lightly sweet and medium bitter. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, with nice carbonation and a dry finish. This was a really nice Black IPA, I could’ve had a couple of these.
