COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 30, 2013
In short: A under-malted and over-hopped abrasive piney and grassy golden IPA. Hard to drink
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed relatively fresh a few weeks after receiving it from oakbluff, thanks a lot Scott
The look: Clear golden body topped by medium off-white head quickly dissipating to a small persistent layer of foam
In long: Nose is rather piney but also with plenty of dry grass with a spicy twist. Taste has elusive malts, light body, residual sugars without backbone. Balance is obviously not the goal here. Hop profile was like a hefty dose of chinook-like high alpha acid sandy piney hops with also a whole lot of Saaz-like dry grassy hope with a spicy edge. Iím almost certain no Saaz went into this American IPA but thatís what it tasted like. There was also a soapy edge I could have done without. Very looooonnnnnggggg after-taste. This beer didnít work for me, abrasive, not refreshing, hard to drink despite the light body, couldnít take big sips without making faces. I was very much disappointed by this one, and it is the all those disappointments caused by all the boring beers I buy that drove me into drinking, and that makes perfect sense to me.

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

Padron4KM (611) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAR 15, 2015
22 oz bottle.
Light amber, creamy one finger head, spotty lace.
Aroma hops up front; dank, juicy citrus, piney, floral, with some crystal malt backing it up.
Flavor is citrus hops (orange, tangerine), and sweet malts.

daknole (10035) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2015
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.

Scouser (285) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2015
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.

ElCapitan22 (195) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Pours a hazy orange/gold color. There is next to no lacing or head retention. Smells floral as hell. Lots of rose aroma here, along with nice grapefruit notes. Tastes floral and hoppy, most related to the grapefruit notes in the aroma. A delicious beer that I would seek out again!
