This is a big, bold black IPA that isn't shy on aromas or flavors. Jet black in color, assertive notes of roasted malt, coffee, toasted bread and chocolate abound, with additional hop accents of pine resin, orange rind and grapefruit zest adding verve and lift to the otherwise rich, dense profile and medium-weight mouthfeel. The finish is long and laced with decadent roasted hazelnut and chocolate-covered orange flavors.
