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!

This was my first Black IPA, it’s pretty interesting, Thin head with nice lacing very rich sort of medium hazy brown color. The taste is typical IPA, maybe mellowed slightly with a "roasty" almost coffee-like characteristic.

Great dark red appearance with foamy head. Aroma is heavy on the malt and not much else.. Taste of hops and roasted malt.. mostly balanced, a little sweet.

Pours a very dark brown, near black. Good deal of lacing. Grapefruit lemon and grass, followed by roasted malts on the nose. Assertive floral hop flavor with citrus fruits, coffee and roasted malts. Smooth bitter finish. Nice black IPA

altonbrownd (5474) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle in Brussels. Nice dark body with tan head. Nose is malty, with hops and pines. Spicy flavours. Lots of big malts but also hoppy elements. Really nicely balanced. Interesting one.

On draft. Holy wow. Big aroma of floral and citrus hops, followed by a dark chocolate bomb of a beer. Almost stout-likr in depth if flavor. More raisin and red wine flavor as it warms. An all-timer.

slowrunner77 (9937) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 5, 2014
"not a hop bomb as expected. there are a ton of hops, sure, but the high dose of dark malt give it the look and feel of a barleywine or old ale...with the hops of a double ipa. this is a beer i could really get into. smooth, balanced, spicy hops in the bittersweet finish. nice hybrid here. via trade w/ kinger."
