Widmer Brothers W ’10 Pitch Black IPA

I just finished off 2/3 of a six pack of these bad boys (Widmer Brothers W ’10 Pitch Black IPA)  in nothing flat… easy to drink, nice as a session, this 6.5% beauty tastes good and packs a punch.  I drank out of the bottle tonight, but you could smell, even through that small little neck of a bottle, that this was maltier than hoppy… the black malt came through both in the nose and the body, making you wonder where all the hops had gone.  Then… all of a sudden… POW… HOPS IN YOUR FACE!  They sneak up on you and give you a little ‘hows your father’ right as you think you are safe. 

Overall a really balanced brew with complexity that keeps you guessing and the right amount of malt and hop to please just about anyone.  Nice work Widmer Brothers!
