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!

mcberko (14406) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours dark reddish brown (almost black) with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and spicy hops, pretty typical of the style. Flavour profile is robust - begins with deeply roasted malt notes (beautifully done), with the intensity of the hops weighing toward the middle, creating a wonderfully balanced finish of roasted notes and spicy hops with a slight bitterness. A delicious concoction here.

Tmoney99 (13466) - 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.

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 (12878) - 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.
