IBA’s sharp orange and light roasted malt scents tickle the nose as smooth piney hops and a waft of sugary malts round out the aroma’s edges. Dark roasted malts splash down the tongue’s center, segueing into drying baking chocolate in the back. Along the way, piney, grassy hops flank the tongue, while its bitterness adds extra bite to the roasted malts to quickly dry the mouth. A citrusy hop addition would add some brightness, but as it is, IBA (short for India-style Black Ale) certainly lives up to its brooding name.
