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.

77ships (5405) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2012

The promotional material for this one is ok, quite Sone-like, don’t think a typical American IPA is that much of a radical style anymore

A – apricot amber, med. hazy with a nice creamy head resting on it, only slightly lacing

S – pure, quite bitter pine resin & bitter oranges hops, pure bitter hops, not really fruity & no sweet touch

T – very bitter pine resin, bitter oranges, bitter marmalade, light floral, bitter pine resin finish, caramel is virtually absent here as are fruitier touch, toffee or much fruit, only maybe very light peach, straightforward, just bitter hops, ok but one more for the more enthusiastic hopheads than me, I like some fruitiness & caramel

B – lightly hazy from the hops, somewhat oily

O – not bad, straightforward fare for hopheads

MadIndian (2606) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Gift from SJ. I really enjoy this brewery. Nice Double IPA, a tiny bit thin, but good. Nice blend of grapefruit, caramel malt and dry bittter finish. Could use a bit more hp , but it’s good.

Maris (1153) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2012
From a 650ml bottle on 222/7/2012 (shared with Butz). Pours a cloudy golden with a medium head. Has a lovely floral, fruity aroma, with a touch of caramel. The flavours are fairly typical of a US style IPA - sweet caramel and toffee malt, with a big burst of fruit (orange, apricot and peach), marmalade and treacle. Finishes with a big resiny hop kick. Comparatively subdued for something labelled as an imperial IPA (it comes across more as a big standard IPA). Very nice stuff.

Lowish carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has caramel, mildly warming vinious, plant sap, apricot, peach, pine. Quite bitter finish. Very nice.
