3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Actually quite a good amount of hoppiness. Big bold, fat as can be, ABV noticable (evidently) but does not overpower everything. Enjoyable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Mekong. Pours slightly orange with a thin white head. Leaves a little lacing in the glass. Big hops on the nose. Very piney. Not very subtle on the tongue. It’s a hop bomb so the name is appropriate. It doesn’t as much as it ignites.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Truly an extreme beer. Hops dominate the aroma and taste and mask the 13% abv, but they’re balanced well by sweet malt.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle: Thick, golden pour. Syrupy looking body. Slightly soapy, foamy off-white head caps this one off. Aroma is very sweet & pungent. Hop oils, alcohol, resin, onion, pineapple, dankness, ashy notes, simple syrup. Kind of muddled & all over the place. Taste is exceedingly sweet. Simple syrupy, residual sugar, honey, & fruit juice. Pineapple, mango... but not in a good way. Crowded with ashy, herbal hoppage, hop resin, hemp oil. With some time, it settles down a bit, but it’s still WAY too sweet. Flavor isn’t necessarily terrible, but the sweetness wears me down quickly. Tough to finish this bottle. Sticky, heavy, syrupy mouth feel. Extremely strange brew.

Luxurious knock-out that demonstrates Evil Twins gutsy, take-no-prisoners approach to crafting beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at Croxley’s Ale House, 9/2/14
Aroma: The aroma is strong hops, lots of pine, with a strong malt presence and booze too
Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark orange color with a beige head and light lace
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, plenty of malt, strong bitterness, and strong booze
Palate: The body is full, with a thick, somewhat sticky feel, and a long, hot, dry finish
This is a big beer. There’s a lot here, but it certainly isn’t overly drinkable. The high ABV makes it difficult to drink much more than one. It is a nice beer though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Atlanta, Ga. - Hop City - 12 oz bottle. Slightly murky dark orange pour with a very light off- white head. Aroma of fruit cocktail, some brown sugar. Flavor is fruit forward with some canned fruit cocktail, some rock candy-like sweetness, some brown sugar goodness, a touch of cookie dough. Mouthfeel is thick and rich

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Jane’s Beer Store, Mountain View. Surprisingly unboozy aroma of fruit, pine, and resin. Beers like this make you distrust the abv on the bottle. Boozy but surprisingly smooth. Very bitter finish. Taste is generally sweet with great juicy citrus bite.
