COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

blankboy (6412) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2009
Draught at ’Cole’s Rare Beer Fest’, Buffalo, NY. Pours a very deep ruby, almost brown, with a small diminishing off-white head. Aroma’s a bit roasty along with lots of hops and notes of cocoa, chocolate and citrus fruit. Flavour’s sweet, slightly sugary, lightly roasted and fruity -- it reminds me of a Terry’s Chocolate Orange along with lots of hops. Finish is quite bitter. Average to medium bodied. Very good, I quite enjoyed it.

Gorbalev (2988) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2009
On tap at Cole’s rare beer fest, Buffalo. Aroma is very hoppy with some malt and alcohol. Very dark brown with not much of a head. Taste is again very hoppy. Body is well carbonated if on the light to medium side. Some really nice malt in here and certainly one of the better black IPA type beers I have tried.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2009
Draught. At Cole’s Rare Beer Fest, January 2009. Clear deep amber pour, with an average off-white head. Dry, medium-roast somewhat grainy malt, and plenty of resin/herbal bitterness. The taste delivered plenty of up-front resiny bitterness, with an overlay of generic light fruit and almost candyish sweetness. Average body, strong carbonation, with a long, bitter, sticky finish - solid, a terrific change of pace amid all the stouts - didn’t knock my socks off though.

2009-01-24. Dark brown body with a modest beige head. (3+) Very green hop aroma, like fresh hop pellets. Lovely. (8+) Flavour has a fresh hop character up front, some dark malt in the middle, moderate bitterness throughout, lingering green hops in the aftertaste. (8+) Smooth average plus palate. Nice! Hit the right buttons at the right time. Tap at Coles Rare Beer Fest, Buffalo
