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!

Awesome floral hop aroma, but man does that look dark for an IPA. Dark, almost black with brown head. Roasted malt and bitter, sharp hops. Not smooth. Would not buy again, not for me.

pours a nice redish brown with a big tan head. This may be one of the worst beers I have ever had. The bitterness over whelms everything. This beer starts off sweet then goes immediately to bitterness. There are bitter hops, dark fruit flavors and bitter citrus flavor, YUCK!!

On tap at Mcmenamin’s. Dark brown slight reddish hue when held to the light. Thin tan head. Fizzy aroma. Some citrus notes. Flavor is very dry - some roasted malt flavors and bitterness. Dry, bitter astringent finish. Not entirely pleasant.

Poured ruby in color and a nose of pure, unadulterated hops. Very nice lacing, but this beer was all hops with no balance.

I found this beer too bitter. It was definitely hoppy but the bitterness didn’t seem balanced in the bottle I sampled. Perhaps I should have another?

So when I pop the lid, wew big double IPA aroma, so I thought that’s what would come out of the bottle. But no, this is a very dark beer, darker than dark iced tea and it has a half inch creamy head that does not fade. Strong and rude (for a lager lover) initial flavor. Bitter resin from spruce trees. Beautiful lacing on the glass. very strong, yes it does have a high alky taste bud impact but i would say it is not like a 9 percenter. It does have some detectable carbonation, but just barely. There are some dark beer attributes hidden deep down inside this brew but for the most part, just plain in yer face. Finish is long bitter lasting rude rotto-tilling across your tongue impact that seems to last ferever. Double IPA fans better seek this out. Me? I don’t like hops and I bought this on a whim.

SanfordBrewer (1403) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2012 Lots of grassy herbal hop aroma and bitterness, some roasted malt, translucent amber brown with a beige head. sticky medium-full body with medium carbonation.

aroma: astringent herbal hops, chocolate malt.

Like an extra-hopped american brown ale, but with a horrible clash of burnt grain and herbal hop astringency. taste: astringent burnt malt, astringent herbal hop bitterness, and a bit of ale yeast esters.
