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.

Bottle, 22oz. A lightly hazy, golden-orange beer topped by a finger-thick, dense, off-white head. Really, really piney aroma, with some peaches in the back. Fruity, quite sugary too. The flavor is really bitter and piney, with resins, some peppery hints and a touch of something peppery. Full-bodied, quite sweet, although totally overpowered by the hoppy bitterness. Lasting finish with the bitterness dominating. Although a bit too much on the bitter side, it’s a really fine beer. 120817

saxo (14455) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich hops, caramel, earthy, flowers and malt. Nice and long bitter finish.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 16, 2012
One of the better DPA’s I’ve had. Pours hazy walnut with a tinge of orange. Big floral aroma of orange peel, and resinous citrus with an undercurrent of malty sweetness like honey. Full bodied with a perfect balance of sweet caramel malt and bitter orange/lemon rind hops. Just enough hops to linger on the tongue without being overwhelming.

sebletitje (7411) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2012
Draft @ Délirium Hoppy Loft Brussels. Orangée trouble, col épais beige. Arôme est de toute évidence houblonné avec des notes d’agrumes et une pointe légère poivrée. Palais est épais, houblonné/agrumes sur un profile malté caramel, aspect de résine et de pin, alcool devient réchauffant, le tout est collant aux lèvres avec qcq notes d’épices résiduelles.

The promotional material for this one is ok, quite Sone-like, don’t think a typical American IPA is that much of a radical style anymore

A – apricot amber, med. hazy with a nice creamy head resting on it, only slightly lacing

S – pure, quite bitter pine resin & bitter oranges hops, pure bitter hops, not really fruity & no sweet touch

T – very bitter pine resin, bitter oranges, bitter marmalade, light floral, bitter pine resin finish, caramel is virtually absent here as are fruitier touch, toffee or much fruit, only maybe very light peach, straightforward, just bitter hops, ok but one more for the more enthusiastic hopheads than me, I like some fruitiness & caramel

B – lightly hazy from the hops, somewhat oily

O – not bad, straightforward fare for hopheads
