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!

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown (not black, like most Black IPAs), with a medium head and a fair bit of sediment. Looks kind of like a barleywine in the glass. Powerful aroma, with caramel malts and assertive floral/pine hops vying for attention. Flavor is more hop-driven, with a stronger malt backbone than most IPAs, but less maltiness than most other Black IPAs. A bit astringent on the finish. A solid but not outstanding example of the style.

hopmelt (196) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Pours reddish brown, half finger tan head, nice lacing. Aroma toast, dough, toasty malt, earthy hops. Taste is bitter dark malt, earthy hops, slight caramel and toasted malt, bitter finish. Mouth feel medium, lower carbonation, astringent bite from black malt, finish is slightly on the dry side. Overall, not bad, a bit bitter, not well balanced, doesn’t fit my palate.

7/04/2010: Victory Yakima Twilight... Aroma: Bread crust; toasted caramel/toffee malts; floral and earthy hops. Appearance: Reddish-brown color; quite dark; some Flavor: Palate: Sweet bitter with the thick, cheqwy toffee malt followed by quite a bit of earthy bitterness with a citrus flair at the end. Overall: Decent, drinkable beer; was hoping for something a bit more refined; I would like to try this beer again...

12 fl. oz. bottle shared by ASB. Thanks Scott! Rating #798 for this beer.

This was good. It had a great mix of floral hop and roasted malt aromas. Dark brown color with medium head. Definitely not as black as most black IPA’s. Full palate with some weight that I attribute to heavy malts. Big toast flavors with solid hops presence on the floral and piney side, a little sweetness on the back end. Not a total palate wrecker but close.

UncleKorm (974) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle poured a cola reddish brown hue containing some small sediment w/ a large beige head sticking to the glass as it diminishes. Big sweet malty aromas of caramel, toffee, chocolate, nutty, grain, cookie, plums, and orange. Initial flavor is heavy sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish of long duration. Tastes are caramel, plum, orange, molasses, light roasted rye, and sweet prunes. Full bodied, syrupy texture, soft carbonation, and a moderate warmth in the finish.

Spab (2670) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2013
355 ml bottle at beerbistro. Pours a cloudy orangey brown with large tan head. Aroma is roasty malt and very spicy hops. Flavour is big on green, spicy hops with toasty/roasty malt giving hints of caramel and chocolate. Spicy bitterness in finish. Not obvious as a black IPA but nice.

Pretty bitter beer. Tastes a lot like what I would imagine pine trees taste like. If you like bitter beers, I would recommend it.

From bottle. Poured a brown in color with small thick head. Aroma was sweet with biscuit and bread, some caramel. Taste follows with a little bitterness.

Wouldnt call this a black ipa, reminds me more of an india brown ale. Nontheless, nice malty flavor with balanced hop difference. Hops are nice at the end but dont overpower the nice malt body.
