The tenacious grip of big, juicy hop aroma and character slides smoothly into rich, dark malts. This heavyweight battle between fresh, Yakima Valley hops and dark, roasted malts is resolved harmoniously as the flavors merge to deliver complex satisfaction with a warming edge. Enjoy the ‘twilight’ for the bright and brassy hops!

Theydon_Bois (14316) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle at Christine and Daves on Thanksgiving Day, 28/11/13. Found this at the back of Daves fridge, best before Oct 2010 - so old it carried the former name of this beer - Yakima Twighlight. Though I’d give it a go anyhow ! Pours dark chestnut brown with a moderate beige covering - full of floating globules, I’m going to ignore these for rating purposes. Nose is light roast, big burst of pine, sticky tropicals, caramelised sugars, dank hops. Taste comprises pine resin, dank hops, caramelised sugars, red grapefruit, caramel malt, sweet cake mix. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet finale with hop bitterness present. This has held up amazingly well bearing in mind it should have been dealt with 3 years ago - carried more flavour than a lot of fresh beers I’d had this same day!

DocJitsu (1375) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Pours a dark cola brown color with a thin mocha-taupe head. This beer was served too cold, so the aromas are muted. Chocolate and cola notes. A little flat, with a medium body. A lot if complexity. Chocolate, cola, vanilla, with a touch if bourbon, and bourbony alcohol. Cola sweetness and extraordinarily bitter.

ClassyBeagle (374) - USA - NOV 3, 2013
FROM NOTES: July 16, ’12 Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass. A: Strong malt notes and progressive pine and citrus hop notes. Sweet with orange citrus and white grape juice and supporting maltiness. It dances from malt dominant to hop dominant in the nose. A: Clear deep amber orange, two-finger head with some lacing. This is a sexy as a Black Ale can look! T: Follows the nose with strong malt flavors, but a lot less sweet malt than I expected from the nose. Nice hop piney bitterness, earthy, floral, with a hint of malty caramel, very well balanced. P: Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Slightly buttery/creamy. O: Malt bomb + Hop Monster = Yakima Glory. I freakin’ LOVE IT!

From a bottle. Pours clear brown with thin tan head. Roasted nuts caramel and raisins in the nose. Sweet caramel maltiness balanced with pine resin and a bitter finish... Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tcane7 (1670) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Draft at Standard Tap. Pours a dark, clean, amber, with fluffy beige head. Nose of roast, caramel, chocolate, dark fruit, piney and grassy hops. Medium to full body with a creamy mouthfeel. Lots of sweet caramel and roasted malts with potent pine. Fairly bitter finish. Good beer, taste like a black ipa, doesn’t really look like one.

fattybladdy (628) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 19, 2013
12oz bottle, enjoyed well beyond the freshness date. Dark brownish ruby in color. Strong malt, pine and booze in the aroma. Taste is pretty similar, with some citrus hops and moderate bitterness. Not bad at all.

bwa5879 (826) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Dark Dark brown pour with reddish hue, a few inches beige head of medium density. Decent lacing. Delicious powdery scent - creamy citrus hops dominate. Taste is scotchy and carmel malt, a bit smokey, citrus hops too, again pretty creamy. Average carbonation, watery mouthfeel, dry, boozy finish. This is a great black IPA and a steal in the dollar bin. Because it was supposed to be enjoyed by a full year ago, I’m stoked to try a fresh one. Overall tastes like a scotch ale/IPA hybrid.

mcaron45 (8) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2013 does not count
Dark ruby brown, tan head, thin layer remaining. Caramel, orange, raisin, sweet. Hops are there to balance sweetness, but to me the sweet overpowers the hop flavor. Good, but not a style I prefer.
