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!

Scipio (701) - 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.

scottyshades (130) - Parkland, Florida, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2012
A: Pours a barely transparent brownish amber color with a big eggshell color head. Retention is good S: Really piny and earthy...Sierra Nevada-type hop schedule that kind of smells like peanutbutter. Lots of dark malts give a chocolate note T: Bitter hops are upfront and dominate the flavor. Dark malts give a nice base, but don’t quite balance the hops. The hops are piney, resinous and a little earthy MF/D: Carbonation is pretty spot on, but the finish is not my style...plus the alcohol is a little high, but not really invasive Notes: not really a great example of the "new" style, and as big a joke as Cap’t Krunkles is (trading wise atleast), it is better than this

RABinCO (1293) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Draft. Pours ruby gold. Not what I was expecting for a black IPA. Big juicy aroma. Taste is very hop forward, big bitterness. A bit too sweet, could use some more malt balance.

jbruner (2317) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Pours a reddish-hued-brown on tap with frothy tan head that dissipates to leave moderate lacing. Aroma of bitter hops and dark, roasted malts. Taste follows, but the hops fall off except for a bitter aftertaste. Decent, but definitely not the best black IPA, if you can even call it that.

jackl (4600) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle. Thanks to Seth (again) for the pour! The appearance is deep brown/amber with a small head. It certainly doesn’t look like your typical black IPA! The aroma’s massive sweet chocolate cake, cinnamon, general spices. Some charred grain. The taste is more spicy sweet cinnamon cake. Bitter, green grass. Large roasted malt body, bitter chocolate. Smooth, somewhat thick on the palate. Overall, not bad!

Yakima Glory pours reddish brown with a finger width off white head. There is good head retention, and plenty of lacing sticks to the glass. The first aroma I find in Yakima Glory is citrus, including grapefruit and lemon. I expected more of a roasted aroma in this beer, but I couldn’t pick any out of the bouquet. It smells like a regular American IPA to me, which means it smells hoppy and delicious! As I take my first sip, the citrus turns into pine. There is a slightly sweet caramel flavor in the middle, and it ends dry with a bitter finish. Yakima Glory has a medium body, and average carbonation. There is no presence of the 8.7% ABV at all in this beer, so be careful! Yakima Glory is a good IPA, however I prefer Victory’s HopDevil and Hop Wallop. Also, I am not sure how this qualifies as a Black IPA. To me, no matter what ingredients were used, it comes off as a hopped up amber or red ale. I noticed that Victory doesn’t call this a black IPA anywhere. In the beer description, they admit to using some dark malts, which, in my opinion, doesn’t exactly make it a black IPA. All in all, Yakima Glory is still a good beer!

Capa (2029) - Manama, BAHRAIN - FEB 4, 2013
Deep brown with a tan head. Aroma is citrus and pine over a sweet malty background. Medium body. Flavor has a mix of dry, rustic malts and piney, citrus hops. A bit maltier and sweeter than many BIPAs I’ve had. Still, not a huge fan of the style. Decent brew.

Deep amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is of grass, pine, citrus. Taste is the same.

TomTron (376) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2013
Pours a deep red, with a tiny off white that sticks around. Aroma is some earth hops and yeasy, but it smells like a big boy beer. Flavor is big time hop explosion, and alot of bitterness but when I saw this was a black IPA, I thought "No it can’t be". It’s a good beer, but it’s kind of a mess....

Jur (301) - NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2013
Bottle @ beerbistro, Toronto. Not black, but brown! Little nose, some nuts and caramel, no head. Quite flat taste. Despite the high ABV unremarkable. Caramel, dry, bitter. Ok.
