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 Ďtwilightí for the bright and brassy hops!

So when I pop the lid, wew big double IPA aroma, so I thought thatís what would come out of the bottle. But no, this is a very dark beer, darker than dark iced tea and it has a half inch creamy head that does not fade. Strong and rude (for a lager lover) initial flavor. Bitter resin from spruce trees. Beautiful lacing on the glass. very strong, yes it does have a high alky taste bud impact but i would say it is not like a 9 percenter. It does have some detectable carbonation, but just barely. There are some dark beer attributes hidden deep down inside this brew but for the most part, just plain in yer face. Finish is long bitter lasting rude rotto-tilling across your tongue impact that seems to last ferever. Double IPA fans better seek this out. Me? I donít like hops and I bought this on a whim.

12 oz - The Wine Source. Dark crimson, light tan creamy head. Heavy citric spruce aromas warm to soft swirls of melon and roasty chocolate molasses. Deep fresh spicy citric-pine hop blast rounds with a hints of chocolate roast and nutty toffee. Full bodied, soft carbonation, bitter finish. A great hop fix...

Pours a beautiful mahogany with some suspended particles and a thick manilla head which lasts the duration of the beer. The aroma is strong, yet balanced blend of pine, grapefruit, earthiness and toasted malts (reminds me of what SN Celebration Ale used to smell like) - very nice. Flavor has a huge malt backbone to support the hops - notes of toffee, munich malt (I think), woodiness and then a blast of pine and grapefruit. The bitterness is ample but balanced-out nicely by the malt. Thankfully, it doesnít come across as too sweet, definitely a hop heavy beer. Palate-wise, you canít ask for anything more - medium to full bodied, creamy texture and the carbonation level is just right; not too dull, not too prickly. Well done, Victory.

Drake (10841) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a dark brown color with a moderate offwhite head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus and resin hops. Taste is very hoppy with big sticky resinous notes along with some wood notes. Berry-like notes in the finish. Medium bodied.

daknole (10346) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 20, 2009
Pours a dark amber with a big tan head. Aroma is citrus/spicy hops. I also detect some notes of caramel and honey. Flavor is hoppy, but not overly bitter. Light yeast, resin and some bready notes.

pours a dark copper with off white head. aroma is big resiny pine hops, a bit of grapefruit. mouthful is a pleasant assault of bitter hops. the roasted barley tries to make a showing but is lost in the bitter finish.

On tap at the brass rail, the beer poured dark amber. This beer was exceptionally fresh and tasty, with a piney hop character that wasnít overly bitter. This is an awesome and very drinkable IPA where the alcohol is hardly noticable. Very well balanced.

Picked this up today at Hawthornes after hearing good thing about this beer. Pours a very dark amber/chestnut brown color with dark golden orange/ruby edged when held to a light source and a 1.5 finger yellowish light beige head that quickly dissipaes into a thin lasting ring that coats the glass with lacing. Fresh earthy and floral hop aroma with subtle citrus notes and a prominent toasty caramel malt backbone. Hints of dry piney notes as well as some citrus peel an grapefruit but there is a very prominent hazelnut/biscuit malt aroma that kind of takes away from the more pleasing aromas. I havenít tasted it yet but it seems like another east coast IPA that has way too much balance and not enough dry citrus piney hops. Medium bodied and very hop forward with a lot of earthy, dry piney hop bitterness that is countered by a strong malt back bone with hints of sweet caramel and biscuit. Slightly toasty with hints of hazlenut. The bitterness and dry palate remain prominent throughout even though the malt character is a bit too strong. All of the pleasant dry bitter hops are half cut down halfway through. This beer started off amazing but like most IPAs from around here the malt backbon balances things out a bit too much for me. Still, this is a pretty comex and the high ABV is excellently masked, making this very easy to drink.

pours a deep ruby color with a huge foamy light tan head...great retention and lacing. aroma has a sweet roastiness and very floral hops that exhibit earthiness and subtle spice. very nice! flavor has some roastiness but is quickly dominated by loads of earthy, spicy hops! mouthfeel is slightly oily and lively with a dry lingering spicy hoppy finish. outstanding beer.

12 oz. bottle from Macís on West Peachtree. Nice looking beer; huge fluffy head that doesnít fade away quickly. Reddish brown color; this beer looks pretty damn good. Very aromatic pine and citrus hop aroma. Ah...this beer has a very nice and refreshing aroma. Not a great palate, but a nice pine hop flavor. Wish it were creamier, but you canít always get what you want. Slight malt sweetness. I like the pine hops, and I love the ABV, but the flavor isnít exactly nuanced. A nice A.S.A. but I wish it had more malts and more hops to kick it up a notch.
