Very hoppy aroma very floral and heavy malt aroma mixed in this orangy hazy brew with little white head. A full malty flavor and body and good carb compliment the hop flavor and bitterness of this imperial ipa. Overall it is exactly what the brewer says. A massively hoppy imperial ipa. Massively delicious.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from bomber bottle bought at bevmo.
Aroma - hop forward pineapple and citrus. Candy and dank pine.
Appearance - light gold and hazy. Thick off white head.
Flavor - zesty fruit and citrus. Nice hint of caramel malt and dark fruits balancing the hop profile. Clean yeast profile which helps the hops shine through.
Mouthfeel - medium carbonation. Finished nice and dry. Very refreshing.
Overall - very nice DIPA from Heretic. Great drinkable balance between the malt, hops, and alcohol. Very well made beer.

Heretic Evil Cousin 9/1/13 notes: draft. Pours solidly gold with nice white lacing. Aroma is very floral with some tropical elements. Flavor has juicy citrus, nice sweet tangerine in middle, finish is hoppy with balanced bitterness. A very well crafted DIPA, packs a hop punch without being overbearing. 3.9.

Dankl without being too over the top. Good representation of the style, though more subdued than some examples, this just bumps up the drink ability.

22 oz. bottle. Pours and orangish amber with a medium white head. Big, fresh pine and citrus peel aroma, mild orange and grapefruit, touches of lemon and herbal hop notes. Flavor is quite bitter with mild sweet malt notes. Mostly pine and citrus peel bitterness, powdered sugar and doughy malt sweetness. Medium bodied, average carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. Finishes fairly long and bitter. Nice.

This double IPA pours a transparent golden color with a solid white lacing that lasted the how whole pint. Has a distinct perfumey aroma that is appealing. This is pretty balanced beer, but definitely on the piney side. This beer is enjoyable and memorable had a distinct west coast identity.

Bomber. Pours a burnt orange cooper pour with a small head. Nose is more pine and resin than citrus. Taste is straight up front bitterness with resin and pine and some background citrus. Finish is strong bitterness and moderately long. Nice DIPA for true hopheads. Quaff Score 7 / 10
