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!

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - NOV 16, 2009
12oz. bottle, with thanks to mtoast for the nice bonus. Pours a clear dark cola brown with a good sized fluffy tan head and thick lacing. Aroma is roasty malts, caramel, pine and some citrus. Flavor is more pine, caramel and roasty malts. Good lingering bitterness and resin on the finish. Thanks again Hart!

Served from a 12 oz bottle from OTM. The appearance is a deep bronze with a small dirty white head. The aromas are juicy with hop flowers and a decent roasted malt. The flavors are a bit on the syrupy side. There is a strong burnt malt in there as well. Some pepper noted build tooThe hops are very wet tasting. The mouth feel is sticky with a medium bitterness.

Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2009
6 pack from North End Market. Poured into shaker. Pours a clear orange/amber with a deceptively aggressive tan head that holds and laces nicely to the finish. Pretty uncomplex with alcohol upfront in both aroma and flavor. Some background notes of light malts and a bit of dry finish with bitter hop aftertaste. A great 6 pack for sure.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2011
Bottle. Dark reddish brown pour with a lasting creamy tan head. Hoppy aroma with lots of pine, grass, molasses, grapefruit and a hint of juniper. Flavour is very hoppy also but less fruity and more herbal, with a sweet malty caramel backbone. Slick mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a relatively short bitter finish. Pleasant and easy drinking considering the abv, although it could have used a bit more depth or complexity.

hivemind (708) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Tap at Tap Room 307 w Erica. Deep red to black pour and a sizable white head. Aroma is dry hops and a faint fruity undertone. Palate is a little spicy to start and then a balanced bitterness that chases the beer as it goes down. Dry and earthy.

Aurelius (4121) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Big, fresh west coast hop aroma, that I’m sure the hopheads will love. Bad label. Dark, clear, rootbeer ruby-brown beer with a lasting tan head. Sweet, vegetable/grassy, alcohol astringency, a slight stout/roast underpinning. Long bitter finish - hops, alcohol, roast - which goes metallic. Too much. I gotta say, the BPA rage can’t end too soon. ABC Liquors, Betton.

Scipio (690) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle. Impressive appearance. Dark amber in color and has a dark head that sticks around. Aroma consists of hops and malts. Caramel flavor dominates without the hops that were apparent in the aroma.

Dark in color, clear with a thin head. Dark malt aroma and good hops fruit and floral backing. Good Black IPA flavors.
