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!

arminjewell (7045) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Pours dark brownish black with off white head, aroma has big pine notes to compliment the chocolate and roast present. Taste is simple, but delicious with notes of pine, some resin and citrus leading into sweet caramel, chocolate, finishing roasted and bitter.

sebletitje (7028) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2010
Bouteille, couleur ambre avec une mousse épaisse de ton blanc-cassé. Arôme, houblon avec note de grain donnant un nez un peu fermenté âpre de fleurs et de sapin. Goût est malt grillé avec de longues notes de houblon citronné, le tout est suivit de malt grillé et caramel. Le fini reste plus sur l’amertume et le houblon avec un palais sec et qcq notes de pamplemousse. Pas mauvaise, mais loin d’être ma préférée du style Black IPA. Je trouve la présence du houblon un peu trop forte et cela entache le côté malt qui ne ressort pas trop. Peut être avec un peu d’age, le houblon s’estompera.

Bottle. It pours reddish amber with a creamy light tan head. The aroma is citrus, peach, passion fruit and caramel.

Svesse (6634) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2010
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, hoppy nose with caramel, dark fruit, chocolate and fresh citrussy hops. Malty taste with notes of chocolate, coffee, caramel, a touch of cocoa and a fresh, citrussy bitterness in the finish. Well balanced and tasty beer combining the nutty, malty character of brown ales and the fruity, hoppy character of an IPA. Not an easy thing to accomplish, but this is quite excellent. Nice one.

12 ounce bottle shared by Eric. Pours a clear copper color with a large creamy beige head. A mellow hop aroma, sweet and citrusy, light caramel. A great flavor; bitter and aggressive hops, sweet caramel and toasted malts, a nice creamy mouthfeel. Very nice, extremely drinkable.
