COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Evil Cousin is Heretic’s take on a West coast imperial IPA. This beer is a bold, in-your-face hop monster. It has a light, easy drinking malt character that allows the hops to stand out. The hop character in this beer is intentionally on the dank side; big, sticky, and aggressive. This beer is for those of you who can’t get enough hops. Join us on the dank side.

KeefOz (1514) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 30, 2016
Poured a clear to slightly hazy golden amber with a two- to three-finger bright white frothy head that retained very well and laced Ok in rings. Carbonation soft, light to moderate, with fine to medium sized bubbles. Aroma is pleasantly of moderately strong pine, subtle citrus and a hint of passionfruit; no obvious alcohol. Taste of moderate pine bitterness, slight lemon citrus, possible tropical fruits, moderately sweet pale malt and a bit of alcohol burn on the after-taste. Light to medium body. Crisp with a lingering moderately strong pine bitter finish with an alcohol after-taste. Nice, but not as nice as Evil Twin.

HPDalen (286) - DENMARK - AUG 27, 2016
Can. Pours light golden with s pretty tall and rocky white head. Some malty caramel in aroma, also hoppy grapefruit, orange and maybe some passion fruit. Great palate, sticky yet quite light. Medium carbonation with a long bitter finish. Heavy bitterness in flavour as expected. Some immediate sweetness, but then just bitter. Superb.

Clear golden, small white froth. Juicy aroma, peach, passionfruit and light pine. Flavour has the same fruitiness but with a little more pine and good malt backing. Smooth and very drinkable.
