Bottle shared by Tmoney99 (Feb. 2012, notes). Pours a cloudy orange amber color with a small white head. The aroma has big citrus hops, resin, grass, caramel and toast; some oxidation seems to be going on. The flavor is decent, sweet malts, caramel, toasted bread, citrus, resin, also seems to show a hint of oxidation. I would like to know I am getting this European stuff fresh.

Timmytay (10) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 20, 2013
Pours a yellowy copper with a creamy head and lots of lacing. Looks thick. Smell is underwhelming...caramel, citrus, pine. Tastes much better than it smells. At 8% abv, I expected a bigger burn, but the alcohol is well hidden behind the sweet caramel malt and big piney bitterness. Heavy mouthfeel. Quite tasty. ..

Bottle, labeled as Evil Twin All Occasions IPA, june 22nd 2013. Hazy orange body, big offwhite head. Aroma is grassy with lemon, pine, grapefruit and light caramel. Taste is more grassy, still with a good grapefruit amount, lemon peels, pine. A high bitterness keeps the beer going strong, with a chunky malt and grass finish.

rbrazell (1576) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Draft at Proof. Glowing orange pour with a frothy white head. Piney, grapefruit and mango hop aroma with a bready caramel malt backing. Strong bitterness throughout the flavor with chewy malts and a piney finish. Slight touch of alcohol of the back end. Pretty tasty.

SlackerMads (1419) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle. Hazy orange with a medium sized ok lacing off white head. Aroma is caramel, grain, bread, soapy, citrus, light pine. Quite alcoholic along the way with a long bitter finish. Taste is medium sweet and bitter. Medium/full body, oily texture, soft+ carbonation. Feels a bit malt dominated and could do with more hop aroma for my taste.

jbruner (2138) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with a thin white ring of lacy head. Aroma is big and hoppy, fresh pine and grapefruit. Taste follows, big hops up front, then falls to a sweet caramel malt back. Solid and hardly any hint of the booze.

Ktwse (1836) - SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2013
The All Occasions IPA version. Pours hazy amber with low white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, grapefruit, peaches, mango. Taste is balanced fruit sweet with a nice medium pine bitterness that lasts through the fairly long finish. Body is light to medium and creamy with low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
