What an overall great, interesting, very hop forward yet somehow not overwhelming beer. Lots of great sweet malt backbone with caramel and subtle roasted oatmeal on the nose. Tons of pine/grassy hops with some peppery yeast notes on the first sip.

From looks alone this one is very appealing and looks delicious. Very dark amber with a nice one inch tall caramel colored head that leaves some nice lacing and even some subtle alcohol legs.

Nicely carbonated at a medium level that doesn't overwhelm but keeps it's bite on the tongue. Go and try this one for sure, especially if your a fan of black ipa's. This one doesn't scream roasted, toasted, dark, caramel, chocolate, coffee like other black ipa's, but that's one of the reasons I'm really enjoying this one. This is supposed to be a winter seasonal but I could easily enjoy this by the campfire on a summer night. Perfect for those fall weekend afternoons as well.

Watch out for it's abv though, can't quite tell.

From my tasting notes: the Yakima Glory poured a deep ruby brown with a full tan head and loads of hops on the nose. Below the hops there was a hint of sweet malt that subdued the hoppy aroma. The taste was a front load of big juicy hops that faded into a bitter burnt chocolate and sweet toasted malts. The two flavors played well with each other and brought out the shining attributes of each while not allowing the other to take over. There was loads of flavor and lots of dynamic tastes to be had. A delicious beer with plenty of flavor to spare.
