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.

Nice beer, bit too dry and light bodied. It's like there isn't enough beer to hold the hops and hops aren't as biting as a result ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear golden, small white froth. Juicy aroma, peach, passionfruit and light pine. Flavour has the same fruitiness but with a little more pine and good malt backing. Smooth and very drinkable.

Alengrin (4439) - BELGIUM - AUG 6, 2016
West Coast DIPA from a 65 cl bomber. Thick, frothy but regularly shaped, beaten egg-like, lacing, dense head over a lightly hazy peach blonde beer with orange hue and fierce sparkling rising up through the glass, stabilizing the head. Pleasant dank, ’wet hop’ fragrance of lemon rind, fresh grapefruit peel, dried mango, red curry spices, hint of spruce, candied ginger, white bread, chamomile, accents of Thai basil, fresh tomato juice, green bell pepper, strawberry, roses. Clean fruitiness in the onset, hints of green banana, starfruit and orange, restrainedly sweetish with slight sourish and umami-like touches here and there, everything well in balance; softly carbonated. Slick, lightly oily mouthfeel, bit resinous. Only very lightly biscuity malt sweetness in the middle, otherwise rather ’cereally’, clearly this DIPA is more tilted towards the hops than the malts, and indeed the finish is governed by a firm, resinous, spicy, fruity hop bitterness with lovely retronasal grapefruit, flower, soft pine and exotic pepper aromas; a very long tonic water-like bitterness lingers and coats the back of the mouth and the throat for hours, but somehow it never becomes overly harsh, making this beer end very elegantly. Elegance seems to be key here: delicate fruity and floral hop effects, pleasant long bitterness as is to be expected from the style, but everything cast in a noble, gracious form retaining a remarkably high drinkability. Excellent DIPA.

IndianaRed (3742) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 5, 2016
On Tap at Taphouse, Boise Hazy light pale yellow witha thick dense white head. Light malt body and fresh strong citrusy hop flavors. Pithy and pungent and lacing a harsh late IBU bite. Nice strong hop flavors. But fresh and somehow light. Very good

Clear, light golden color. Nice lasting head. Aromas of tropical fruits, pineapple, light caramel malts, and some alcohol come through. Start quite sweet and leads to a pleasant, hoppy finish. This has a big hop flavor with ripe tropical fruits, citrus, and pine. Has a touch of fruity esters, but not much. It is very easy drinking, despite its body. Quite balanced for the style which is a plus, but I did get it imported to Europe from California, so a lot of the hoppiness surely degraded on the trip.
