UPDATED: MAR 7, 2014 What a great beer! Rich, smooth malts contrasted by the zing of hops. Tons of flavor but too much alcohol. Perfection in flavor and balance. Eek! Did I say balance? ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Bottle. Love the hope nose on this one. "Tenacious grip of big, juicy hop aroma" is right. Clear dark reddish amber with plentiful carbonation and a thick, creamy, tan head. Layered lace sticks to the glass. This is my 3rd Yakima Twilight and I still love this beer. Electric, tongue tingling hops entertain the palate while a rush of malt and alcohol add balance. It’s been awhile since Victory wowed me with a beer and they have with YT. Alcohol presence is a little hot, perhaps preventing this from getting a perfect rating. I hope this beer comes around again next year! davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Bottle 330ml at Dispensary Enoteca. Great hoppy beer. Aromas of caramel and grass, with notes of bread and chocolate. Taste has a sweet start, with bitterness taking over for a long finish. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Brown, with a frothy head. kyrgyzbrewer (6) - Natick, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 8, 2013 does not count
This is one of the few beers not a milk stout or Scottish Ale that I would call silky smooth. It doesn’t kill you with either hops or malt, but it is very pleasant on both. If you like over the top hops, don’t bother, but on a cold winter night this is a wonderful IPA. WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2008
It is not really fair to rate a cask beer along with regular drafts and bottled beers because the cask always starts with a slight advantage. Fantastic freshness and fantastic mouth feel. I had this at the brewery and almost feel as if it were brewed specifically for me. Dark chestnut brown with a small head. Nose of sweet caramel and hops hops hops, with assorted citrus. Now, I am a sucker for hops and in the cask version that hoppy bitterness would have been almost overwhelming if not perfectly balanced with sweet deep malty notes. Bitter finish just lasts and lasts. I love it.
