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!

Papsoe (25083) - 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 (19797) - 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.

Oakes (12777) - 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.

Leighton (11623) - 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)
