Kegged Tasting Notes:
So this was my first shot at a "Black IPA" and I think I hit the nail on the head in terms of what I was going for. I was a bit worried about the color but the more I check it out the happier I am with it.
This mother is a punch in the face - around 7% ABV, 106 IBU, ready to destroy your tastebuds in the best way possible. Huge hop punch from the Warrior with a nice spicy/citrusy combo from the Sorachi and Amarillo. There's enough malt to know it's a CDA, but it isn't overly frontal like some brewers seem to go for.
Check it out, and as always comments are welcome!
