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!

UPDATED: APR 3, 2013 From tap Lord Hobo. Pours clear brown with a deep golden orange glare and with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy and slight spiced hoppy. Rather caramelish. Bitter and dark roasted malty. Dry and hoppy finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 3, 2013
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours an almost clear dark - nothing black here though! - amber with a creamy beige head. Greasy thick hop aroma atop some caramel. Rich body, again thick toffeeish caramel - no roast - with a thick hoppiness if somewhat indistinctive. Ends bitter with some alcohol showing. Not bad, bud certainly not a Black IPA - red at the most. 030413

omhper (23711) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2010
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear ruby, rich head. Generous aroma of tangerine and stable. Sweetish and quite fruity with caramelly malt forming a ful sized body. Relaxed with rich flavours of sweaty hay-like hops and some citrus. Growing late bitterness, that probably measures real high in BUs, but doesn’t feel aggressive. A slight tingle of alcohol warmth is noted.

Leighton (18695) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2013 Cask at Barcade, NYC (early 2010). Really delicious. Dark and stouty on account of the multitude of roasted malts. Nice, off-setting hop bitterness. Great beer. (4.5)

Bottle shared at CBC - Clerkenwell, London - thanks to the generous Seth! Good stuff. Punchy hops, earth, pine, dirt. Wonderful black IPA. (3.7)

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!

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 19, 2010
A: Pours an opaque dark amber color with a finger’s worth of off-white foam. Some nice lacing on the glass. S: The smell is not quite what I was expecting. A floral, fruity aroma in the first whiff, followed by a very sweet caramelized fruit type smell. I keep flip-flopping as to whether I like it or not. T: Similar to the nose. The initial part of the sip has some nice bitter hoppiness to it, which then goes into a sweet, caramel malt flavor. The finish goes back to bitter, but still some sweetness. M: The body is quite full and the carbonation is actually quite abundant. D: This was an interesting beer. I’m glad that I only bought a single instead of a sixer. It’s a nice strong ale, but it seems as though the beer can’t decide whether it wants to be a hop-bomb or a sweet malty beverage.

Oakes (15804) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2010
From the stash. Slightly hazy amber-brown. Dark malt toastiness with some leafy hops. Strong beer - lots of malts, toasty and chewy. Leafy and earthy hop character. A bigger, duller take on the cascadian idea.
