3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the Ale Wine & Spirits Evil Twin tasting on 05/19/2011. The beer is a clear amber color with a thin off-white head that diminishes to an outer ring eventually. Stringy lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops and malt. Medium body with a vinous character as well as more citrus and hops, as well as a touch of malt. The finish is hoppy and short. Decent overall, but pales after trying the Yang right before it.

bottle @ redlight redlight. Resin on the nose, very piney. Pours golden blonde with a thick off white head. Resinous upfront with wine notes following, very vinous, with some tanins, finishes with white wine and bitter piney hops. I never would have thought this would work but it does.

Awesome brew! That makes 2 stunners out of 3 from Evil Twin for this rater. Thanks to my cousin for opening this one. Fresh, sweet, piny hop aroma. Full, tangy, lightly astringent IIPA. Dash of yeasty greens. Very foamy with a huge head. I did not taste the white wine in here, which is a good thing. Very impressive, sir!

Bottle sample at the Evil Twin tasting at Ale Wine & Spirits on 5/19/11. Clear amber pour with a thin off-white head. Nose of white wine, crisp citrus, honey and grassy hops. Wine flavor with grassy hops and a malty finish. Super carbonated, but didn’t detract too much from nose or flavor.

Bottled. A hazy dark amber beer with a huge light tan head. The aroma has notes of hops, over ripe fruits, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, over ripe fruits, moldy wine grapes, alcohol, and flowery hops, leading to a dry and very bitter, hoppy finish. The body is thick

330. Pouyrs a cloudy dark amber with a gigantic surging rocky tan head. Plenty of fish eyes and suds. Loose spotty lace. Lemony bright vinous nose, definitely showing the white wine without a doubt. Some pine and grapefruit behind that. Creamy medium body, getting pretty flat. Caramel and pine showing on the mid palate but the bracing wine grape acidity is what characterizes the flavor profile. Vinous crisp finish. If you could get just the right acidity and just the right crispness from the wine, that would be something. Right now it still feels pretty experimental.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Palate cleanser. Hoppy citrus aroma. Citrus flavour. Drying. In your face hops hits the style. Big and boozy, but not complex tasty.

Courtesy of James while watching TROLLHUNTER. This sucker was the best brew of the night. I’m really excited for this brewery... everything I’ve had has either been world class or damn close. Ultra bright aroma and mouthfeel... clean and delicate array of piney hops and some remnants of tropical fruits. THE brewery to watch in 2011.
