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!

Tmoney99 (11560) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2009
Bottle from Root Cellar. Poured dark clear ruby copper color with a large frothy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Good complex earthy hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and lively carbonation. Medium to heavy malty bitter flavor with a medium bittersweet finish with a small alcohol burn of moderate duration. This a very good complex brew.

Theydon_Bois (11442) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
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!

Bottle conditioned, 355ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Dark red to chestnut with off white head. Quite caramelised early on, toffee, sweetish, this leads to a pine like hop note, quite grassy perhaps. Heady alcohol note, late fruitiness. A little mixed up.

Lubiere (10734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2010
A red copper I2PA with a thin creamy lacing off white head. In aroma, a beautiful pungeant c-hop bomb, well balanced with the biscuitty malts...wow! In mouth, intense hops with menthol notes, dry malts, warming alcohol. A bit unbalanced but still a classy hopbomb. On tap at American Flat Bread, Jan. 11 2010.
