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!

This beer is two big flavors meeting up. The strong dark malts get a tad overpowered by the huge floral, hoppy taste. In the end, the high ABV is hidden well and it’s pretty well-balanced leaning toward the hoppy side - real good beer.

12oz bottle. Poured a dark reddish brown with a nice off-white head. Aroma & taste are much the same: big malts & hops: roasted malts, fruity, citrus, some pine. Medium body with a solid bite. Very good depth and very well balanced. I have not had that many Black IPAs but this one IMHO was excellent.

At first glance, wasn't optimistic, but taste was amazing. Aroma slight hippiness, maybe a little stale. Poured with a large head that quickly died off. Strangle color - more of a burgundy red. Hoppy with a bitter palate, not too sweet. Carbonation is light and refreshing. Stale aftertaste, but not too lasting.

Oily, hoppy, sweet brown mess of a brew. I liked it. It is kind of a brown imperial IPA; complex, velvety, and sweet. Nice palate. It’s super-hopped, brown in color, and retains a good bit of sweetness.

Bottle. Was looking forward to this since its announcement. Pretty and dark. Robust, balanced aroma, everything from celery to caramel to chocolate. Everything is amplified with this beer - big malt, big bitterness. Nothing really subtle about this beer IMO. Big flavor. Almost tealike in its dry bitterness. Actually kind of smells like a brewery - but its a mustiness I actually find appealing. I love this beer.

A very intriguing brew. Looks like a brown ale, but has a massive amount of hops thrown in. It taste is like a charred IPA or something. I will re rate this later.

Taken from old notes. Deep ruby pour with a citrus nose. Taste is a smooth mix of bitter and sweet. Finish is long and bitter. Hides the 8.7% really well.

Pours dark reddish brown with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma is a wonderful bouquet of citrus, pine, and resin with a few roasted notes. This beer isn’t really black, but the taste certainly says Black IPA. A very nice marriage of dark roasted malts and high alpha hops with strong bitterness. This is good stuff.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2010 Dark reddish-tinged brown with a small khaki head that leaves a little lacing on the glass. Juicy hop aroma, more grass and citrus than pine. Nice toasted malt to go with it. Taste is dark roasted malt punctuated by a strong hop punch. The sweetness of the malts is definitely noticeable. Tons and tons of citrus hop flavor. Grapefruit and orange swim in a sea of toasty malt flavor. Nicely balanced. Smooth, medium body. Great showing from one of my new favorite styles.
