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.

Draught at Tadg, quite clear, amber colour. Lots of hops on the nose. Very hoppy taste with reisin too. Very drinkable.

daknole (9796) - 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 (2018) - 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!!

malty pine cone aroma, pale gold body with white lacing, creamy pine cone flavour with the malt coming through for a relatively sweet finish

On tap at a Concord beer festival. Not bad, but not the best IPA I’ve 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 (179) - 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!

Just like they said "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. Dank, big, sticky, and aggressive. Delicious!

ACHops (847) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2015
On tap @ Zeitgeist. Pours hazy medium copper with thin creamy white head. Aroma is medium sweet caramel malt with dank earthy hops on the back. Taste is similar - big sweet dark caramel malt, decent roasty notes; then sharply bitter hops on the finish. Grassy, dark pine notes from the hops, plenty of bitterness that lingers through the finish. Still, this is a malt driven DIPA. Not bad, just plenty of superior choices in this category.
