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.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 29, 2012
Bottle 65 cl. Pours a clear deep golden with a white head. Intensely hoppy aroma, herbal bordering wild. Solid body, fruity and distinctly herbal - really appears as if spices or herbs are added, but it’s probably just the hops. Plenty of piney edges as well. Dry and hoppy finish without being overly bitter. 280412

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2012
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Hazy copper color. Strange aroma: very rough hops, with some bitter oranges, hop resins, but also Munster cheese, sundried tomatoes, feet, vegetables; peculiar, chaotic, but original. The body is not too thick fortunately, the residial sweetness is well controlled; there is a strong flavor of caramel, with some toffee, strong hop resins, bitter oranges, and again that character of vegetables, tomato sauce and soup. Umami beer. Long final.
The peculiar side of this beer (probably coming from the hops and not from the fermentation) is actually quite original and appreciated; overall it’s balanced too.
Earthy and rustic.
At 40kr (7$) for 20cl, somebody is trying to justify fuel surcharge on transportation.

Keg at Craft. Hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Smooth soft palate with fine carbonation. A beer of 2 halves if ever there was one. The first half is very grainy - raw malt - off putting. The second half loses the raw malt and has pleasant sweet hops, tangerine and orange and orange marmalade. Finishes semi dry. Hard to mark this one!
