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.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 Bottle. Pours clear gold with white head. Aroma had a big centennial aroma herbal, grassy. Flavors are grassy, mint, green, bitterness is very clean, dry, some sweetness but really solid and well executed. Fermentation is flawless. You can really tell pliney inspired Jamil with this one.

Fresh bottle from reputable Carlsblad store, noticed later it was a bit over 6 months old from bottling. It was drinkable and hoppy, but something a tad weak.

WEmp. Hazy orange/gold, persistent thick white head. Citrus and herbal aggressive hops are both bitter and aromatic. Tangy and spiky with light fizz, with a long bitter finish. Top DIPA this one.

PhilJackson80 (312) - Oklahoma, USA - DEC 18, 2013
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to a reddish orange color with a thick white head. The aroma has pine, grapefruit, slight floral scent to it. The taste is medium in body with a good malt balance to the heavy dose of hops. Overall a very good DIPA.

emartell (244) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - DEC 6, 2013
Aroma con notas abundantes a citrico, destacando la cascara de naranja. También se percibe una intensa pero agradable nota a lupulo. Sorprende su excelente equilibrio y gran final.

Oregon_butcher (60) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Light golden in color. Very carbonated. Smells nice and hoppy. Very good, balanced beer, fruity! In a blind taste test with Pliny, evil cousin, enjoy by, and a few others I chose Pliny and evil cousin as a tie for the best IPA. This is a delicious IPA, definitely one of the best I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sodakotakid (230) - Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Pours cloudy yellow/orange with a quickly disappearing large white head. This beer is very hoppy, piney and full of citrus flavors. The alcohol flavor is covered up nicely. Good DIPA!!
