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.

Hazy golden yellow with thick fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet bready malt and piny hops. Taste is dank resinous pine with grapefruit citrus on the follow through with a decent malty backbone. Aftertaste is lingering bitter citrus and pine. Palate is sticky resin. Overall nice hop bomb that lingers nicely.

bomber shared by jsprime. pours hazy orange with an off white head. a nice double ipa that really grew on me as we drank it. perhaps a little in the shadow of the experimental hop henge we had right before it. overall its a solid representation of the style.

Zymurgeist2 (1783) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 5, 2013
From bottle to tulip glass. Grassy, dank and resinous on the initial aroma. Some slight, sweet grain in the backgound. Beautiful, clear old gold with an off-white head that initially billows with mixed sized bubbles. A little soapy looking. Taste is grassy hops with massive bitterness. Some pine and resin. Sweet malt near the end in moderate amounts. Finishes dry.

Pours a brownish orange with a pillowy white head. Huge aroma of hops. A bit thin but still amazing. Slightly bitter but just the right amount. Really well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good beer, a little too west coast, strong onion character but very strong hops which were enjoyable. Definitely lives up to its description.

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours amber orange with a fluffy 2cm of off white head. Aroma is floral and citrus hops, bit of resin. For a citra hopped beer, the tropical/citrus flavours are pretty low-key. Touch of caramel. Taste is hop forward, citrus hop flavours with a nice, rough carbonation and bitterness. Was expecting something a bit more citra-esque considering it is a IIPA, but still solid.
