Lithic Brewing Co. Black IPA (6.3%)

This is a decent little Black IPA that does everything that you would want from the style.
It pours an inky black with a nice frothy cappuccino head and smells of chocolate coated plums.
There’s a very good malting that’s thick and round and rich with dark chocolate and coffee beans, honey, bran flakes and prunes, and there’s also a very nice little peppery kick of spicy yeast before the hops slap you with lemon zest and orange marmalade, pithy bitter hedgerow greenery and a fizzing sherbet that leads you to a lovely dry bitter finish.
