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.

22-oz. bomber into a pint glass at my house on Nov. 13, 2012 (purchased at Mission Trails Market for $7.99 on Nov. 13, 2012). Caramel amber with three fingers of thick frothy white head. Decent wet foamy retention on the top and the sides. Smelled a nice dose of citrus hops. Got grapefruit, tangerine, lime, skunky pine and caramel (light). The skunk lingered on. Tasted very hoppy right from the get-go. Got tangerine and grapefruit bitter hops up front with a strong bite of orange peels and alcohol lingering after. I kept waiting for the aftertaste to be good, but it never really came. Definitely missing something. Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively (above average) carbonation. Skunky, bitter finish. Was a bit disappointed overall, especially for the $7.99 price tag. It was missing something, came up just a tad short.

This poured a semi hazy orange color with a white head. Aroma was citrusy Hood, caramel and booze. Flavor was citrusy and grapefruity, sweet and a bit malty, bitter. Old school

Solid DIPAs. Is there anything that calls out this solid DIPA from any of the others? No. But, I enjoy this one.

Light amber, creamy one finger head, spotty lace.

Light orangish pour, white head. Some juicy citrusy hops, and light sweet malt keep this one fairly balanced. Nothing outstanding but a very solid beer.

Garrold (2152) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Hazy, orangey amber. Thin, lasting, white head. Fusty orange. Pine cone. Pine resin. Ginger biscuit, sweet malts. A bit of black pepper. Taste is light sweet, light, woody dry, and mostly, piny, bitter. Airy, soft, but full palate. Finishes long, dank, fusty bitter. Very nice.

Pine and citrus wit some weedy stank to it as well. Had it brewery fresh and it was quite good. Not a wrecker, but not far off.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Golden amber coloured with rich orange marmalade flavours, tropical fruit notes and a creamy pine and citrus finish. Awesome!!

On tap at a Concord beer festival. Not bad, but not the best IPA Iíve had.

Pours a hazy orange gold with no lacing or head. Aroma of lavender grapefruit and other floral notes, one of the best smelling beers! Taste of rose hip, berry, grapefruit. This is a really good beer.
