COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A lighter, yet full-flavored, aromatic Ale for the long days of summer. Twilight’s solid malt foundation pairs with distinctive Amarillo hops for flavors every bit as intriguing as bigger, heavier ales. A back porch, lingering sunset wonder.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5168) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy bright apricot color with a large creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was musty and dusty with bread, orange, honey and a bit of phenol. The flavor was bitter orange, lemon peel, bread dough, honey and phenol. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

Has a slight bitter taste at first but finishes smooth. It has a deep yellow color. The citrus’ flavors mesh well. Not bad.

dfearnley (1113) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle to goblet Tangerine, hay, citrus, floral hops. Colour is a reddish amber with no real head. Orange rind, wheat, apple and syrup. This is a nice session APA, but perhaps a tad too sweet.

Tap at The Alibi Room, Vancouver. Pours a honey gold with a white head. Malty with caramel and lemon aroma. Light body, medium carbonation. Honey, lemon, sponge cake, caramel, light pine, a little metal. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gschrade (778) - Collinsville, USA - AUG 29, 2014
I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber with a off white head. Taste fruit, citrus, bitter. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drake (9433) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2014
12 ounce bottle from And Beer, Athens, 7/15/14. Pours a clear copper color with a large foamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of floral hops and doughy malts. Maybe a hint of spice. The taste is floral and citrus hops, apple, mildly toasted malts. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, good balance, nice refreshing beer.

chinchill (2446) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
12 oz bottle purchased in Eugene and consumed on the banks of Oregon’s McKenzie River. Appearance: clear deep amber with a semi-durable, frothy bone-colored head. Excellent lacing. Aroma: herbal/floral hops with a good bit of biscuit malts. Flavor: Hop intensity in this “summer style” ale is about that of a typical APA. Fruity/herbal hops with hints of citrus. The hop load is higher than the flavor level of the malt base. Mild+ bitterness. Feel: Lively medium carbonation. Near medium body. O: recommended for fans of the APA style.

rangerred (974) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - AUG 21, 2014
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy medium copper with a half finger white head. Head retention really isn’t all that great but there is some ok lacing. Aroma really brings out some orange peel and lemon zest. Maybe a little fruit punch too. It is very juicy but not so much tropical. Very little malt in the nose. The flavor has loads of lemon up front backed up by some orange. There is a strong graininess that quickly rushes in but it works well to balance out the hops. Just a fairly mild bitterness that lingers and helps to cleanse the palate. Overall, a nice version of a blonde ale. Maybe a bit more hoppy than other examples but it is a great thirst quencher with good flavor to boot.

Frank (3128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2014
I just assumed based on the name this would be amber or brown ale but it is more of a pale ale or even a blond. It is orange in color, slightly cloudy, w/ a ring of foamy white head and little patches of lace. This is a hop forward but mild beer w/ a little bit of spruce tip pine but mostly focused on orange and lemon citrus flavor. It is medium bodied w/ moderate carbonation and finishes cleanly w/ just a slight burst of bitterness. This isn’t a head turner at all but is really nice to drink and there is something to be said for simple, thirst quenching pale for the summertime.
