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.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 29, 2012
Bottle 65 cl. Pours a clear deep golden with a white head. Intensely hoppy aroma, herbal bordering wild. Solid body, fruity and distinctly herbal - really appears as if spices or herbs are added, but it’s probably just the hops. Plenty of piney edges as well. Dry and hoppy finish without being overly bitter. 280412

This really wasnt a good beer. I am not sure what went wrong here. This beer tasted like it has onions and garlic soaking in it. Maybe some old bready taste. I love a good IPA and Pliny is one of my favorites so it isnt just that I dont like IIPA’s. I was really disapointed as I was excited to try Heretic brewing.

Pours a deep gold color with a white head and plenty of lacing. The aroma has plenty of pine and resin, and the "dank" in the description definitely fits. The hops in the flavor are heavy on the resin as well, with a malt background and a slightly spicy finish and aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Botella, Thanks Morten V.E! Hazy deep amber golden colour with a big off-white bubbly lively head. Strong aroma of herbal citrus hops and malt with caramel. Good mouthfeel. Flavour is quite hoppy, herbal hoppy like, fruitish too with toasty caramel and malt.
