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.

Good aroma, you can smell the hops trying to escape. Surprisingly firm and foamy head will stick around until the beer is gone. Monster hops, but the minimal malt balance is just right, doesn't fight the bitterness, but adds some complexity to the flavor and takes a tooth or two off the hops bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The_Osprey (5298) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2016
355ml can at home in Richmond as ’Heretic Evil Cousin’, 8.0%, 2 months since canning. Amber orange, pretty clear with a slight haze, lightly sparkling, foamy white head leaves thick lacing. Aroma is caramelised sugars, orange oil, orange boiled sweets. Body is smooth, a little foamy, soft carbonation. Taste is booze and caramelised sugars, citrus oils, tangy drying booze just about offsetting the sugary malt, pine and resin, spice and booze in the finish. Pretty simple. Notice to brewers: sweeter is not necessarily better.

JorisPPattyn (9056) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 16, 2016
Small yellowish-tinted, irregular head over veiled orangeish yellow beer. Aromatic, fruity, but also rather cheesy hops’ nose, and not very lasting. Bitter-metallic, citruszeste. Again a bit green-mold cheese flavour, trickling into the aftertaste. Very slick, but not much more than medium bodied. Light alcoholhint. Hardly more than average, not my taste.

Pyrmir (5201) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2016
Can sample at Växjö Ölfestival, thanks DM! Hazy golden with white head. Aroma has sticky caramel, pine, citrus, passion fruit, mango and grapefruit. Taste is similar, sweet yet fairly balanced, grapefruit, pine, resin, citrus, tropical fruit with a medium bitter finish. Good

tricksta_p (2916) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2016
Bottle at De Koffer, Groningen. Aroma is rich fruits, tropical notes, grapefruit, peach, hoppy, sweetish malt, some pine resin. Flavour is moderate sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium. Pretty decent, nicely juicy IIPA.

Ktwse (3413) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2016
Pours cloudy golden with a finger of low white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, passion fruit, light mango. Taste is mild citrus bitter followed by a rich tropical fruit sweetness. Light, yet creamy body with soft carbonation.

Burk. Tallbar vått gräsmed passionfrukts tuch. Smaken mango o frukt med en krämig bra avslutning. Det är bara att konstatera återigen att amerikanarna kan.

From 650ml bottle, poured with beautiful full head that lasted nicely. loads of hop aroma and easy drinking for an IIPA with the back end hop flavour, booze, and bitterness nicely balanced. Dangerously easy to drink for an 8% beer. Like

mmahut (1776) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 30, 2016
Bottle. Pours in hazy orange-pale body with low white head, poor retention. Aroma has high pine hop character, tropical fruits, tangerine, well balanced. Taste has a lot of dark fruits upfront, tropical fruits in the background, loaded with hop but the bitterness is well balanced with the subtle honey sweetness. Body is full, medium carbonation.
