This is a black IPA that is enhanced with some rye malt. It pours a very dark brownish-black color with a nice billowing light tan head. Big tropical fruit and citrus rind aromas mix with sweet brown sugar and subtle rye notes. Lots of silky body creates great mouthfeel that showcases the rye and roasted malts. The silky body of this beer also delivers loads of tropical hop flavor with slight pine resin to the middle of your tongue. It finishes very balanced with a soft bitterness that goes well with the dark malt framework.
