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!

Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured a cola color with a hint of dark burgundy with decent off white head and minimal lacing. Though this is suppose to be a Black IPA aroma was more like a dark ale with dark fruit overtones and with a hint of hops. The taste was the same. Interesting beer, definitely worth revisiting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice amber brown with a creamy, light,1/2 inch head. Smells of spicy hops and some alcohol esters. Taste is all hops up front but are quickly subdued by the roasty malt, Not a dark beer but definately has a nice balanced flavor. Goes along the lines of a non-spiced winter ale with some kick. Very drinkable.

March Madness 2011 Aroma - almost no noticeable aroma Appearance - Dark amber, clear, moderate head Taste - Is this a Black IPA or a Black Pale Ale? Taste is indecisive Palate - mediume body, good carbonation Overall - Not a beer I would (personally) drink regularly but pretty tasty with a unique flavor.

Sip this one slowly or you could miss all of the notes this beer has to offer. A lot of character and very satisfying. My new favorite beer. I probably would have never tried it either if I hadn’t lived previously.

From bottle. Dark amber/brown pour with nice tan head. Not very clear but could be chill haze. Nice hop aroma. Good flavor and mouthfeel. A little lingering bitterness, but good balance between malts/hops overall.

Pours a dark reddish-brown with a big frothy tan head. Overwhelming scent of pine and hops. Taste is hops, hops, hops & HOPS. There is some mild maltiness that balances out the long, bitter finish but this beer is very intense and overwhelming. I’m not too sure about this beer. Perhaps just not in the mood for this style, Sadly this is the only one i have.

WOW! This pours out an amazing dark brown with great foam. It is like drinking a stronger version of hopdevil with a much maltier taste to it. Amazing beer.

Pours a dark roasted amber with a french vanilla head. The aroma is a pronounced pine crusted scent that reminds me of the holiday season. The initial hit to the palate is a stick of hoppy dynamite with loads of pine and sap coasting down the gullet.. The aftertaste is greatly prounounced with a malty flavor of marshmallows and syrup as seems to be the trend with most east coast coated IPAs and such. Good but a bit much on the malts as it dances dangerously close to porterville. Good, yes... Great, ehhhh.. maybe... Still the high degree of alcohol difficulty is a positive.

Thanks bro! Pours dark ruby to brown with a wet tan head. Sweet malty and hop aroma. Initially very hoppy and bitter but mellows out into a warm woody finish with some lingering bitterness. Slightly sharp but foamy. Haven’t had too many black IPAs but I think this was a good choice.

12oz btl. Pours a deep clear copper with a frothy off white head.. Aroma of oily hops and some sweet caramel. Really nice hop aroma something crisp, resiny and refreshing about it. Starts with nice caramel and toffee malt notes followed up by a nice crisp hop kick with a pleasantly bitter finish. A great balance between roasty malt and fresh hops. A great unique IPA.
