3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottled 12/19/2013. Lightly hazy, burnt orange with a lasting film of cream. Nose is big fruit - peach, pineapple, orange; plus some caramel, resin and mint. Tastes of toffee, orange and pineapple on the front. Bitter finish of resiny wood, alcohol and pepper. Medium-heavy body has a high carbonation that’s a little too much for my tastes. Balanced with a big bitter finish and shows some warmth. I used the second half of the bottle to make a black and tan with half the Yin I rated simultaneously, and I would say the the score of the mixed beer matches the scores I gave to this beer.

Bottle. Clear rich orange pour with a smaller head. Syrupy hoppy citrus and pine. Quite aggressive but very good.

Lasting white foamy head atop a deep orange coloured body. Nose of very bitter orange rind. Flavour of orange marmalade, chocolate nibs. Okay.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Looks great - golden pour. Aroma is lacking - mild hops, no fruit. Taste is hop bitterness with a battery acid resinous finish. Overall, not my sort of Imperial IPA. Bitter bite. Could not drink on its own; only redeeming feature is that it works great as a black and tan with Evil Twin Yin.

Based on the one other beer I’ve had from evil twin all their beers taste like their own thing completely and this is no exception to what I am now going to call a pattern. This thick bitter ipa is extremely bitter but still palletable. Very enjoyable.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is really good. It also has its own taste to it much like the yin, and it’s really good. It’s got a great transparent dark orangeish color, very clear. One of my favorite IPAs.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a nearly clear deep orange colour with modest-sized white-ish head. Aroma has juicy citrus and pine resin as well as fruity, caramelly maly. Flavour is fairly hoppy with juicy grapefruit and some pine, and has a solid maltiness. Slick, oily mouthfeel. Pretty subtle alcohol-wise for the ABV. Nice.

Clear pale body with almost no head. Aroma has dark fruits, light caramel. Taste has light caramel sweetness, high earthy bitterness with grassy after taste. Fruity. Body is full, light carbonation.
