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!

On tap at Draught House in Austin. Medium to dark brown with small head. Nice american hop aroma with a hint of roast. The flavor is pretty intense with bittering hops, flavor hops, and roasted malt. It’s like an imperial brown ale with lots of American hops. It has a medium to heavy body but is balanced enough to be drinkable. Very tasty beer if you get a chance to try it.

A nice strong ale with a hoppy nose and bits of coffee, chocolate, and lemon in the flavor. The body is lighter than that description might suggest, and the bitter dipa-style finish makes this a good pair for grilled meat (even if my description makes it sound like a dessert beer). 12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Aroma. One of the best beer aroma’s I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Rich malt and fruity hop notes. taste is similar, with a larger dark malt presence and sweet fruity hops. Wonderful beer! Favorite so far by Victory!

TATE (285) - Lubec, Maine, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a thin off white head. Aroma is earthy and a balance of hop and malt. Bold hop flavor but pretty balanced. Spicy note at the end. Overall a good hoppy ale. A bit too much hop for my taste but again, very well balanced.

Nice beer, very drinkable. Smooth black ipa with a nice lingering hop taste. High carbonation and full tasting beer.

From a bottle. Pours clear brown with thin tan head. Roasted nuts caramel and raisins in the nose. Sweet caramel maltiness balanced with pine resin and a bitter finish... Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bière IPA de couleur brune de 8.7% d’alcool, ressemble à un peu à une scotish de par le goût du malt un peu sucré, très houblonné, plusieurs explosion de saveur dans une gorgé!!!

pours a dark brown almost black, but can see though with light in the back. Fluffy tan head. the aroma is grape fruit, and citrus. the flavor is roasty, but with lots of hop flavor and bitterness. the hops are rigth up front to the end, but the after taste is largely the roasted malt. the hops are grapefruit, citrus, and your normal american hop flavors. overall this is pretty good, i would def buy again. it hids the high amount of alcohol very well, i didnt even realize it had that much until i read the bottle.

Brown pour. Citrusy aroma. This ale has a ton of fruity, hoppy goodness. I’m not such a good judge of IIPA vs. strong ale. Is there a clear difference? I would drink this any day.
