COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Evil Cousin is Heretic’s take on a West coast imperial IPA. This beer is a bold, in-your-face hop monster. It has a light, easy drinking malt character that allows the hops to stand out. The hop character in this beer is intentionally on the dank side; big, sticky, and aggressive. This beer is for those of you who can’t get enough hops. Join us on the dank side.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 16, 2012
One of the better DPA’s I’ve had. Pours hazy walnut with a tinge of orange. Big floral aroma of orange peel, and resinous citrus with an undercurrent of malty sweetness like honey. Full bodied with a perfect balance of sweet caramel malt and bitter orange/lemon rind hops. Just enough hops to linger on the tongue without being overwhelming.

Poured from bomber bottle bought at bevmo. Aroma - hop forward pineapple and citrus. Candy and dank pine. Appearance - light gold and hazy. Thick off white head. Flavor - zesty fruit and citrus. Nice hint of caramel malt and dark fruits balancing the hop profile. Clean yeast profile which helps the hops shine through. Mouthfeel - medium carbonation. Finished nice and dry. Very refreshing. Overall - very nice DIPA from Heretic. Great drinkable balance between the malt, hops, and alcohol. Very well made beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

krumbum (402) - truckee, California, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Mostly clear amber. Great hoppy pine fresh smells. Sticky but balanced bitter and finishes so smooth. Big but kept under control.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Heretic Evil Cousin 9/1/13 notes: draft. Pours solidly gold with nice white lacing. Aroma is very floral with some tropical elements. Flavor has juicy citrus, nice sweet tangerine in middle, finish is hoppy with balanced bitterness. A very well crafted DIPA, packs a hop punch without being overbearing. 3.9.

Dankl without being too over the top. Good representation of the style, though more subdued than some examples, this just bumps up the drink ability.

HonkeyBra (3114) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2014
22 oz. bottle. Pours and orangish amber with a medium white head. Big, fresh pine and citrus peel aroma, mild orange and grapefruit, touches of lemon and herbal hop notes. Flavor is quite bitter with mild sweet malt notes. Mostly pine and citrus peel bitterness, powdered sugar and doughy malt sweetness. Medium bodied, average carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. Finishes fairly long and bitter. Nice.

This double IPA pours a transparent golden color with a solid white lacing that lasted the how whole pint. Has a distinct perfumey aroma that is appealing. This is pretty balanced beer, but definitely on the piney side. This beer is enjoyable and memorable had a distinct west coast identity.

jjgmd (1226) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Bomber. Pours a burnt orange cooper pour with a small head. Nose is more pine and resin than citrus. Taste is straight up front bitterness with resin and pine and some background citrus. Finish is strong bitterness and moderately long. Nice DIPA for true hopheads. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Pours a golden orange with a white head and hoppy, fruity, piney aroma. Taste is bitter up front, with underlying pine, fruits caramel, and resin leading to a big bitter, dry finish. Nice DIPA
