roblove (28) - SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2011
Orange red in color with a little foamy head. The nose is full of mango, and pear, citrus and tropical fruit. First sweet and ends with a nice bitter finish, with a touch of grapefruit.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Pours hazy deep orange with 3-finger well retained off-white head. Nose is black pepper, tangerine, pineapple, mango, perfumy florals, strawberry; again a very complex nose that it a joy to inhale. The taste is malty, with definite chardonnay notes that integrate well, big florals, black pepper, tangerine, and resiny hops. The flavor is very complex, with huge assertive hops, tropical fruit, black pepper, and a very nice hybrid style that works extremely well, and I can’t believe someone hasn’t thought of this before. I may have a new favorite brewer if this keeps up. Yet another astoundingly good beer from Evil Twin.

Pwn3d (1961) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2011
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.

Lore (1069) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 27, 2013
hazy amber colour, great off-white head with yelolwish notes; aroma of pine resin, wine cellar, citrussy and grassy hops, fruits (raisin and figs), and hints of caramel; taste of intensive oily pine resin, hoppy bitterness and malty sweetness - as if a mixture of a malty barley wine and a double IPA; really strange, but really good

angelkostvo (612) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 1, 2013
Cloudy, dark orange colour. Two fingers off white head. Aroma of peaches, apricots, honey, tropical fruits. Taste is light to medium sweet, medium bitter. Medium to full body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Very good

Defreni (2601) - Husum, DENMARK - APR 8, 2011
Flaske: Orange øl med et kæmpestort skumhoved. Duften er ekstrem humlet, med en smule citrus men også en mineralsk karakter der kun kan komme fra Chardonnayen. Smagen er tør humlet og sprællevende. Igen med en mineralsk karakter. Godt det ikke er den fede chardonnay der er brugt. Rigtig dejlig øl.

jesperhammer (2892) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 19, 2011
16-APR-2011, bottle @home, from "Fish & Beer". Pours out of the bottle on opening. An IIPA that is bottle conditioned??? In the glass it is 5/6 fluffy white head that lasts a long time and 1/6 almost brown body. Nice intro:-) Nose is extremely bitter with grape fruit and piney stuff. Taste is more the same with a malty addition that I like. Chardonnay? Perhaps. At least there is a winelike aftertaste that is extremely bitter. Fantastic brew.

PhillyCraft (3228) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish orange color. Massive, staying white head with soapy rings of lacing. Aromas of pineapple, potpouri, strawberry jam, green grapes, resinous hops. Taste is peppery, woody, earthy citrus fueled hops. Also present is white wine notes, grapefruit hops. This IPA left a pungent tropical fruit flavor on the tongue with a touch of working bitterness. Amazing double ipa from Denmark. Evil twin is killing it with their lineup.

jredmond (5334) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Bottle from whole foods. Pours a deep, hazy amber brown body with big foamy off white head that fades to lacing. The aroma on this sucker is a full bouquet of fresh pine hops. Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated with noteas of pine needles, slightly bitter citrus.

Slipstream (2024) - USA - MAY 27, 2011
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!
