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.

Arayaga2 (1897) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Big yellow, with an inch of super-stable white head. Aroma is sweet, slightly toasty malt, with some red grapefruit, and a whiff of pineapple. Taste is dry-ish, with a resinous bitterness, and a biscuity malt character. $5/22oz

8%ABV. Imperial IPA. This tapped out a bright and lightly cloudy yellow gold, about 6ºSRM with a thin head of compact creamy beige foam. The nose was a sub-tropical bouquet with Orchids, Hibiscus and Lilies. There was a very pleasantly spicy hit of Thai basil and spearmint. It clung to my palate with a moderately alcoholic soapy mouthfeel. The flavor was just malty malty malty and sweet and clinging and sticky and taffy and all the adjectives worthy of a good quality malt. For me, there was just barely enough hops to balance the palate to keep it pleasant.

SinH4 (919) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 22, 2015
Hazy yellow-orange color with small head. Aroma is very tropical, intense thick hop juice. Taste is juicy hoppy, more tropical fruits and pines, with a rather weak malt body. Feels light, the body is thin, but the bitterness is really strong and tells that this one is a very Imperial IPA. Carbonation is low but present. A very unusual and interesting Double IPA.

Dorado pálido limpio y espuma blanca compacta. Aromas intensos de piña, frutas tropicales, mango y, más suave, pino. Cuerpo medio, inicio dulce de frutas tropicales, mango, con final de amargor seco, algo astringente, pero equilibrado.

bhaag (7) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2015 does not count
Solid seeming IIPA, but I reckon there were some subtle weird sour notes in the beer which seemed cool and different to begin with then just seemed to be faulty and shat me off in the end.

raphael (985) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Had a couple thick & wonderful dogfish head brews before this, so crisp in comparison and crisp for IIPAs in general. Amazed at how pale yellow it is, modest white head. A session imperial ipa? smooth and all, light alcohol presence, like I expect a little more character, still nothing to offend or question.
