Cracking the bomber, the brew pours into my glass a deep, super dark black with two fingers of creamy dark tan head atop the brew. Patchy lacing as it falls with aromas of dense pine and resinous green hops along with plenty of tropical citrus. Roasted chocolately malt backbone as well.

First sip brings big roasted malts upfront with plenty of chocolate. Pungent hops roll in with a great mix of tropical fruit and resinous pine tones as well. Plenty of bitterness as it flows down to counteract the malty sweetness. Touch of alcohol heat on the way down.

Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, medium bodied with just enough carbonation. This brew goes down pretty darn easy for clocking in at 10.8%. A solid, super hoppy black IPA, much better than the 14th Anniversary IMHO and well worth trying!
