Evil Cousin is Hereticís 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 canít get enough hops. Join us on the dank side.

22oz bomber, no date for $7.49 at Olive Tree Market in OB. At first, it smells a lot like Marin White Knuckle DIPA, though I feel like this is a little more sweet malt heavy. This has a lot of sweet ripe orange hops with some tropical fruit, some dank (Columbus) notes hiding behind.Clear medium orange with a two finger yellow white head, good retention. Flavor has more dank hop notes that build with every swallow. Not quite as sweet as the aroma led on, and the alcohol is actually a fair amount stronger than the stated 8%. Semi-dry finish with a bit of toasty malt, and bitterness peaks at a 6-7. Low creamy carbonation with a big full body. Better than I thought it was going to be, and might still be a little sweet for some people--this ainít Pliny--but at least there isnít ridiculous amounts of crystal malt. A lot like White Knuckle. Maybe Iím just a sucker for Columbus.

Papsoe (25083) - 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 itís 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 IIPAís. 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
