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!

DocJitsu (1154) - Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Pours a dark cola brown color with a thin mocha-taupe head. This beer was served too cold, so the aromas are muted. Chocolate and cola notes. A little flat, with a medium body. A lot if complexity. Chocolate, cola, vanilla, with a touch if bourbon, and bourbony alcohol. Cola sweetness and extraordinarily bitter.

RSRIZZO (1876) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2009
From a 12oz bottle poured into a Snifter at 47°. Color is a deep rich amber with good carbonation and a nice tan head. Aroma is a bright fresh floral hop scent. It starts with a lighter medium body and fizzy mouth feel that goes down sharp. Finish comes out of the sharp feel with grapefruit zest and pine sap then a bold bitterness. After taste is more bitterness as the citrus lingers on. Not the brew they described, there is almost no malt coming out, its just all hops and citrus.

AirForceHops (4067) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 29, 2010
12 OZ. Bottle shared with liveFREEorRYE. Color is an amber brown. Aroma is roasty, malty, hoppy and a little toffee. Flavor’s dominated by the hops, but it works well with the roasty malts supporting and complimenting the hops nicely. Body is decent and so is carbonation. Finish is mainly hops. I wouldn’t buy again, mainly because I’m not really into hops. But I see why some people like this.

jcr (2278) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Bottle. Deep amber, approaching red body. Frothy, off-white head, lasting. That’s the best thing about this beer. The aroma is malty with lots of toasted grainand raw grain and notes of caramel and cereal along with notes of resin and herbs and lots of dough and earthiness. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter and lightly acidic. Medium body, creamy, thick texture, lively carbonation and alcoholic, bitter finish. The beer seems raw and unrefined leaving the impression of having chunks of plants stems and raw grain in your mouth. Not a big fan.

jsmerig (1313) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Pours a rich dark brown with nice lacing. Aroma is dark with a smell of earthy leather. Taste is malty with a musty bitter bite at the end with a residual of bitter black raspberry. Interesting.

maekchu (2536) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 28, 2012
Bottle. Different label & label description from the (Twilight) label pictured on RB. Thin, reddish color w/ minimal head. No lace. Prunish, slightly herbal aroma. Maybe a bit out of sorts? Drink by date in Dec 11, 2011. Somewhat acidic. Lightly bitter. Watery, thin body. Astringent and not altogether pleasant finish. Quite different from a bottle I had a couple of weeks ago.

Really nothing special. More of a brown IPa and that means I should like it but the pervasive malt just kills it.

jrob21 (2799) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Single from Green’s. Semi sweet chocolate flavor is not always the best on its own. Paired with some light grassy hops though and it starts to cut through some of the powerful cocoa flavors. Bit of a soy sauce aroma. Bordering on a barleywine for me really with a finish that brings you back to some roasty malts. There’s a lot going on here and not all of it comes together in a coherent way.

Appears reddish brown with aroma of sweet malt, raisins, and dried fruit much like a strong ale or barleywine. Incredible marshallow like beige head. Terrible beer if you think you are getting an ipa. Taste of bitter hops, no fresh hop notes as supposed to be. Very dry finish. Great if you think you are getting into a strong ale. Not sure what to think...

Nimrod979 (206) - Hagerstown, Maryland, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Pours a dark reddish-brown with a big frothy tan head. Overwhelming scent of pine and hops. Taste is hops, hops, hops & HOPS. There is some mild maltiness that balances out the long, bitter finish but this beer is very intense and overwhelming. I’m not too sure about this beer. Perhaps just not in the mood for this style, Sadly this is the only one i have.
