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.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 13, 2012
Single bottle purchased from a mom & pop store in Redondo Beach, California on 07/11/2012. Colour: Light orange with traces of yellow. Very little head. Nose: Hard boiled egg if forefront, oddly enough. Hops are certainly there - but not as in-your-face as lead to believe by its name. They have traces of pine and mothballs. Taste: Medium sweet, medium bitter, medium-light sour. A large malt presence gives this one decent amount of sweentess but not at a comprimising dose. The hops are big but not bursting in mid-palate, but a huge bitter finish rises up quickly and is accompanied by some vanilla bean ice cream and wax. Odd little duck but pleasent enough.

LinusStick (2955) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2012
A delicious hop bomb of a beer. Aroma was heavy pine and grapefruit. The aroma was thick and chewy. Pour was a nice cloudy light orange with a one finger off white head. Taste was dank, resinous and bitter. Strong citrus and pine flavors scrape the inside of the mouth. A tad on the hot side.Very little malt to balance the beer out (which is how I like my IIPAs). Nice carbonation with a bitter hoppy finish. Very nice beer

baraciisch (2221) - California, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Burnt orange in color... Aroma is pine and herbal hops... Flavor is strongly piney hops with nice balance of caramel malts, but still has a significant pine and herbal hop backbone... Fairly dry, but still very good... Enjoyable
