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.

Brenhophead (632) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2012
650mL bottle, pours clear copper with a lasting white head and nice carbonation. Aroma is sweet candy grapefruit and slight doughy note? First up in the flavour is a big bitter hit then resinous hops. After they cool down its grapefruit, grapefruit, grapefruit wow!! very nice beer and very drinkable.

Good size lasting head on a orangey golden body. Hops only on the nose with the same coming through in the taste, bitter and drinkable, medium body, straightforward and almost quaffable.

Bottle in Ølbutikken. The aroma screams about American hops. Bitter leaves, sweetness, rahter short finish. Bitter oranges, too.

maneliquor (3372) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours bright orange with a small, firm white cap for a head. Nose is quite spicey with lots of citric hoppage and a touch of resin coming through. Can almost get notes of coriander and fresh herbs. Unusual but pleasant. Taste showcases citrus zest perfectly while spices and herbal undertones play behind it all. Quite a zesty tang on the finish. Nice beer made easy drinking through the soft carbonation and very summery through its tangy finish

budznsudz (581) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours a nice light orange with a pillowy off-white head and some lacing that lingers on the glass. Aroma is hop forward with some spicy pine. Taste is spicy hop with a nice bitter finish. There is an herbal note that compliments this. Not bad.

Good aroma, you can smell the hops trying to escape. Surprisingly firm and foamy head will stick around until the beer is gone. Monster hops, but the minimal malt balance is just right, doesn't fight the bitterness, but adds some complexity to the flavor and takes a tooth or two off the hops bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Fairly clear golden amber pour with a lasting foamy off-white head. Aroma is definitely hoppy, but not aggressively so. It has pine and citrus notes and is spicy and floral with a hint of funk. Flavour pretty much mirrors the aroma with spicy, floral and funky hints creeping in around the notes of grapefruit, lemon, pine, mint and caramel. Mouthfeel is sticky but also quite dry with moderate carbonation and a long bitter finish. A little different to most of the IIPAs I have tried in that the hoppiness is somewhat subdued and the hint of funkiness almost gives it a Belgian quality. Very nice all the same and rather compelling.
