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, 10C. Clear amber with a large white head that lasts pretty well. Floral aroma with pine and grapefruit, marmalade. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Fairly sweet with plain clean caramel before bitter citrus flavours emerge seamlessly. Pine and citrus with some medicinal touches at the end - just a little harsh at first. Bitterness lingers. It is pretty sweet and the malt side is doing little more than supporting the hop show, but everything’s working together. Decadent but coherent.

fiulijn (14298) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2012
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Hazy copper color. Strange aroma: very rough hops, with some bitter oranges, hop resins, but also Munster cheese, sundried tomatoes, feet, vegetables; peculiar, chaotic, but original. The body is not too thick fortunately, the residial sweetness is well controlled; there is a strong flavor of caramel, with some toffee, strong hop resins, bitter oranges, and again that character of vegetables, tomato sauce and soup. Umami beer. Long final.
The peculiar side of this beer (probably coming from the hops and not from the fermentation) is actually quite original and appreciated; overall it’s balanced too.
Earthy and rustic.
At 40kr (7$) for 20cl, somebody is trying to justify fuel surcharge on transportation.

thanks to elnadeau for sharing this bottle of beer with me. This beer is very dry and bitter. It was far too dry for my liking.

Bottle. Aroma of pine & hops. The taste hides the alcohol well, has good hops & pine with some citrus, nicely balanced. The appearance is very nice, golden orange with white foamy head and a moderate palate. Pretty easy going for a DIPA.

Aroma is sweet with semi‐ripe exotic fruits, feels like American Barley Wine. Flavour is very sweet with exotic fruits, fruit sugar and caramel. Way too sweet stuff for me.

lusikka (5955) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2012
Draught @ Ølbaren, Copenhagen.
Pours a clear orange colour with a lacy white head. Aroma of pale malts, exotic fruits and floral hops. Some gooseberry bush -like notes. Flavour of exotic fruits, floral hops, caramel and gooseberry bush. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a long, bitter and slightly fruity finish. Not really from a fresh keg, but still in a decent condition.

Pours clear dark orange with a nice foamy head. Aroma of exotic fruits, berries, caramel, malts and hops. Taste is hoppy and malty with some exotic fruits and berries. Finish is malty and slightly sticky with hints of bitter fruity hops. Nice, quite balanced IIPA.
