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.

I have an evil cousin. He’s gotta be like 50 now. Borderline retarded. Feeble. Probably has a body count under his trailer. That said, I like this beer much better. Pounding hops with a reasonable maltiness in there to kinda balance it out.

VinegarStroke (262) - Napa, California, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle: Clear, deep copper, medium to thick head with great lace. Citrus aromas. Very hoppy. Just a hint of the lantana, green, rubber or resin profile. Dry, not sour and medium bitterness. Good depth and length. Refreshing for a double. Seems to be well attenuated.

Keg at The Hanging Bat. Pours pale gold with a thick white head. Aromas are grapefruit, citrus, big resinous hops. Taste brings more bitternesss and alight touch of caramel at the back. Quite a thin body, bitter finish. Very nice.

PhillyCraft (3075) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2014
Poured an amber tinted orange color with small white head. Nose is berries, grapefruit, light sweet malt, and some misc resin. Flavor was most of the same with a bitter hop bit. Medium bodied with good carbonation for the style. Pretty solid offering.

Koskela (270) - Marysville, California, USA - APR 24, 2014
Very hoppy aroma very floral and heavy malt aroma mixed in this orangy hazy brew with little white head. A full malty flavor and body and good carb compliment the hop flavor and bitterness of this imperial ipa. Overall it is exactly what the brewer says. A massively hoppy imperial ipa. Massively delicious.

22oz bottle pours a slightly hazy pale amber color with some fine head. Mild hop flavors though the bitterness lingers.

Poured from bomber bottle bought at bevmo. Aroma - hop forward pineapple and citrus. Candy and dank pine. Appearance - light gold and hazy. Thick off white head. Flavor - zesty fruit and citrus. Nice hint of caramel malt and dark fruits balancing the hop profile. Clean yeast profile which helps the hops shine through. Mouthfeel - medium carbonation. Finished nice and dry. Very refreshing. Overall - very nice DIPA from Heretic. Great drinkable balance between the malt, hops, and alcohol. Very well made beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mostly clear amber. Great hoppy pine fresh smells. Sticky but balanced bitter and finishes so smooth. Big but kept under control.

Heretic Evil Cousin 9/1/13 notes: draft. Pours solidly gold with nice white lacing. Aroma is very floral with some tropical elements. Flavor has juicy citrus, nice sweet tangerine in middle, finish is hoppy with balanced bitterness. A very well crafted DIPA, packs a hop punch without being overbearing. 3.9.
