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.

Draught at Eureka. Amber with a lasting, creamy white head. Big, dank, weedy aroma. Medium body with a little alcohol presence but not too sweet. Nice soft mouthfeel and carbonation. A little bready and just plain malty. Big resiny hop bitterness and finish. Drinks well for itís size and works the big, dank west coast double IPA angle well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Triple Rock poured a clear orange amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of candied orange, pink grapefruit, biscuit and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, orange,pink grapefruit and light pine with a crisp dry bitter lingering citrus finish.

Tap at the Rubicon. Pours clear copper. Aroma seems fruit, citrus and pine. Med body. Flavor is a mix of hops and something unusual reminding me of burnt rubber. Finishes bitter. Somehow the odd flavor is working rather well.

Clear light orange with a fizzy white head. Strong skunky pine and grassy hoppy aroma and taste with almost no malt backbone to balance out the bitterness.

Draft. Mostly clear golden in color with a well-formed white head and some lacing. The aroma is hoppy as (pardon my Freedom) shit. A citrusy and resinous blast launches an assault on your nostrils. The assault continues on the palate, and itís great. There is a crisp pale malt base that lends a mild sweetness to balance the massive hop bitterness. Oily and resinous on the mouthfeel with medium body for the style and a good carbonation level. Overall a very impressive west coast DIPA.

I had 2 tulips of this delicious IPA in Sacramento, CA at Rubicon Brewing.The lore goes that this brewer attempts to be the best at all his styles I must have had an exceptional batch because it was exotic with sweet undertones of raison and honeysuckle. The aroma was a balanced caramel-hop blend. The palate was kind of herbal-vanilla with a perfect not too bitter finish for me. Exquisite !!!!!!!!

A: The beer pours amber in color with a finger of white head, minimal lacing to go with it. S: The hop profile is very grassy and a bit vegetal. Not what I was expecting. There is a fair bit of sweet malt, mostly in the form of bread. Hints of citrus, mostly orange rind. T: Unfortunately, the flavor is also very grassy, and still a bit vegetal. Some sweet malt (bread and light caramel). A mild bitterness of pine and citrus peel. M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. O: Talk about disappointing. Hopefully this was just an old keg. Iíll look to try this one again.
