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!

Very dark amber with a medium head. Flavor is sweet and strong mix of caramel, grasses and hops.

ilovedarkbeer (2332) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2010
On tap. Oh and I had heard such good things... Pours a dark reddish black brown color with a large foamy light brown head. Notes of paint thinner, dark brown sugar, and very faded hops. This beer is falling apart at the seams. It is completely unbalanced. It’s like a crazy chick after 2 xanax and 4 glasses of red wine. Unfortunate.

Alphadelic (1766) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 6, 2010
Deep red with a little head. Bready malts with fat, herbal hops. Very fresh and vegetal on the nose. In the mouth it has molasses sugar with some dusty hoppiness and a lingering bitterness.

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - DEC 18, 2009
12 oz bottle-Amber pour w/a huge foamy tan head. Floral hop aroma. Strong hop bite on the front end. Kind of a short bitter malt finish. Very strong, kind of kicks you in the teeth, first drink actually took my breath away. Kind of one dimensional, could use a little more malt on the finish to balance it out.

Nuffield (3717) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Big hoppy nose--always the strong suit for me with a high-hopped beer--but typically disappointing in the flavor and finish. Here’s another beer from which I just pushed on.... On tap at The Happy Gnome, St. Paul

nick76 (4258) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2010
The aroma is very hoppy with pine and grass as well as roasted caramel malt. The appearance is deep amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with a bitter finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a well crafted beer but not a black IPA.

On tap at Stout in Hollywood. Poured a muddy brown. Quite boozy. Decent mouthfeel with a dcent bitter finish. A bit non descript.

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.

Beerdedone (2743) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2011
Bottle. Pours caramel brown with a small beigh head. Aroma was piney hops, roasted malts, caramel and a hint of chocolate. Hoppy and malty flavor with pine, roasted malts, caramel and faint chocolate with a dry and bitter finish.
