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!

The aroma has coffee, nuts, fruit, and pine. The flavor is full and a bit rich, with floral hops and some decent sweetness that is not over powering. I like the coffee notes in this beer that are not overdone like many others. This is a very good brew overall.

Chronoflash (76) - New York, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Slightly clear burnt brick below a sticky cream head. Forward hop aroma of cut lawn and oak over toasty sugariness. A medium weight feel, but big bodied booziness characterize the mouth. Bitterness takes a backseat to hoppy taste (grassy). Nice take on the IPA, more aroma and taste than bite.

Pours medium translucent brownish amber with thin head. Aroma is caramel and malty with strong hop presence. Taste is opposite for me with an emphasis on hops and a caramel malt background. Excellent balance of hops and malt here. Palate feel is thick and robust making this a fantastic choice for many occasions.

Pours a dark brown, two finger creamy head that clings nicely. Not much in the nose. Get the malts, hops but hops seem to lack the citrus. The first sip was quite bitter, but then things balanced out nicely with the malt sweetness, toasted malts coming through. Some grapefruit bitterness on the end. Pretty well balanced, not overly carbonated. A bit of warmth at the end. An enjoyable brew, will have again once in a while.

12 oz. Celebrating number 50 with a brew my dad picked out. Pours a dark mahogany, wonderfully inviting, with a billowing beige head (took me by surprise--pour slowly!). Aroma reminded me of Boy Scout Camp; fresh, clean, forest pine air, some citrus, and earthiness akin to dead leaves. Taste was both bitter hops and sweet malt, balanced such that they were inseparable with each sip, reminded me red wine, making a wonderfully harmonious beer. Finished sweet and clean, with a barely noticeable hint of alcohol. Went great with pizza.

Deep red-brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma is big sweet fruits, caramel and bread. Taste is also bittersweet fruity with hints of wine, some coffee. Good stuff.

Murrow (69) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottled. Pours medium to deep amber with light tan head. Aroma of sweet, rich malt pairs nicely with sharp hops. Flavor opens with dry mix of rich, bready malt and piney hops. The malt character develops into a sweet caramel by the time the hops really kick in. The finish is grapefruit and spice. Medium to full bodied, smooth mouthfeel. A very flavorful and nicely balanced IPA.

Bottle. Lots of pine resin and floral notes on the nose. Roasty malts and a kinda orange zest flavor. Nice head, but not great lacing. I would definetly have this again, though not in a flight, it makes everything else with it fall flat.

Had on tap at Dunedin house of beers. Excellent beer. Highly drinkable for such high a high alcohol content. Not overly hoppy. Reminded me of a great double bock.

Very thick, creamy and tasty ale. This has a bitter kick after a drink, definitely one of my favorites
