Evil Cousin is Hereticís 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 canít get enough hops. Join us on the dank side.

On tap at Craft Beer Co - thanks for sharing, Benji! Nice to see this West Coast monster on offer over here, and the face-wrecking dankness certainly contrasted potently with a lot of what I was enjoying during my visit. Big sticky orange pour, heavy lacing, and hugely pungent aroma. Some sticky malts underlaying things, but there was a nicely light - at times even graceful - fruitiness to it that kept things from being especially heavy or syrupy. Backed up by a nice bitter finish, this was a nice West Coast hop bomb.

Poured from a bomber. Cloudy orange pour with sticky and foamy head. Huge floral and citrus nose. Dry and hoppy. Grapefruit pine and bitter. As good as they come. Love it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours copper with ruby hue. Aroma is deep crystal malt, maybe Amarillo hops but very sweet. Taste has the distinct peppery flavour of a saaz type hops at the middle of the tongue, bitter hops at the rear and sweet wort all the way. Hops may be a little overpowering but itís borderline. Perfect for hop heads

Bottle. Pours hazy straw gold with nice off white head and decent lace. Aromas of pine and citrus among a light caramel malt character. Light-medium body, medium carbonation - nice big bitterness and piney grapefruit hop flavour. Malt takes a back step. Finish has a piney grapefruit flavour and bitterness linger with a touch of malt sweetness. A bit semi-sweet at first but a touch dry and mineral on the palate.

I knew while pouring this beer that I would like it. Hops filled the room and you could see from its rich golden colour that it was going to be pleasing on the palate. Not as sweet as I thought it was going to be and was quite dry hopped.

65cl bottle in San Diego. Pours hazy orange with an initial huge, creamy head, and it sticks around afterwards. Aroma is of significant resiny and citrus hops, sweet crystal malt, and hints of tropical fruit (mangos). Flavor is more appealing in that it lacks the sweetness I feared from the aroma. Instead, the resiny hops immediately take over my palate followed quickly by citrus flavors. Iím impressed by its deceptiveness. As the commercial deScription claims, it really is a hop monster and itís an easy drinker (not to be confused as a session beer, by any means!). The carbonation is medium high, a bit high for style, yet itís necessary to keep the balance for what this beer is intended to be. Some alcohol warmth but it doesnít get in the way at all. Medium to med-full body. Iím very, very impressed. I wish we could get this in NC! Are you listening, Jamil?!

650ml bottle. Wow, everything about this beer is good. From the vibrant golden orange colour and deep light white foam cap to the nose penetrating hop aromas and big lingering hop flavours this is one mighty beast of a beer. If only everything evil was this good.

On keg at The Craft Beer Co. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of pineapple, orange sherbet, lemon and caramel. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Mildly bitter and nicely dry to finish. Lovely.

light copper pour with medium white head - aromas of pine, grapefruit, and resin - extremely bitter with only a slight malt taste in the back followed by citrus and a lingering bitterness. Dare I say it? Too much hopping.
