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!

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.

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

mahogany with one finger head. lots of rich roasted malts. it’s hoppy but less so than i expected for the style. very dry finish. alcohol well masked. definitely unique among black ipas.

jhgrantjr (462) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Poured from a bottle, dark brown with a reddish, copper tint. Off-white head that does not last long. Aroma of hops, some citrus, grapefruit, and pine, roasted malts. Taste is bitter hoppy up front with a bitter aftertaste. The malts are not showing up for me. Tastes like some IPAs that have too much pine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An above average ipa with a good aftertaste. This is a beer that grows on you. This is not one of my favs, but it’s in my mid range brews. Thx Victory!

[Tap] Nearly black pours with a quickly receding tan head. Chocolate, citrus hops and darker fruits in the aroma. Taste is of pinecone, grapefruit, chalky grains, chocolate and light hints of alcohol. Sweet and somewhat sticky character. OK overall. Tasting notes from 2012.
