This IPA pours a very dark amber color with a small white bubbly head that fades fast. It starts off right away in the aroma of roasted malt, slight bitterness and a lot of citrus. The taste is much of the same with an orange start, earthy roasted malt middle and a strong lingering bitterness on the finish. This one is medium bodied with an over powered bitterness. It reminds me more of a black IPA with a strong hop character. The idea sounded intriguing, but it didn’t deliver. The flavorless hop bitterness was overwhelming. While the chocolate and orange were present, it wasn’t enough to mention on the label as it is the primary focus on this beer. Overall, it’s something different that would have helped if both the chocolate and orange were turned up a few notches in the future.
