Widmer Pitch Black IPA

Pitch Black IPA poured a dark brown color with a two fingered width, off white head.  The nose is incredible with roasted malt, and very pungent, piney hops.  The body has plenty of roasted malt with with a mellow middle and hop edges.  The finish is pleasant, dry with a sharp hop bite on finish that is not overly done.  The glass was coated with hanging lace. 

Overall, this is a very, very good beer.  Complex, balanced, and rich with flavor, this is a great interpretation of the new Black IPA style.  This might be Widmer's best.
