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.

650ml bottle. Wow, everything about this beer is good. From the vibrant golden orange colour and deep light white foam cap to the nose penetrating hop aromas and big lingering hop flavours this is one mighty beast of a beer. If only everything evil was this good.

Very hoppy. Piney with citrus notes. Crisp and clean. Hides the alcohol well. Easy to drink. One of my favorite DIPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I had 2 tulips of this delicious IPA in Sacramento, CA at Rubicon Brewing.The lore goes that this brewer attempts to be the best at all his styles I must have had an exceptional batch because it was exotic with sweet undertones of raison and honeysuckle. The aroma was a balanced caramel-hop blend. The palate was kind of herbal-vanilla with a perfect not too bitter finish for me. Exquisite !!!!!!!!

Bottle from Black Hearts & Sparrows. Great taste, amazing length. Aroma of burnt caramel, grass, grain. Taste starts sweet, with bitterness taking over for a long finish. Palate is creamy, full bodied. Amber, with a thin head.

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

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 16, 2012
One of the better DPA’s I’ve had. Pours hazy walnut with a tinge of orange. Big floral aroma of orange peel, and resinous citrus with an undercurrent of malty sweetness like honey. Full bodied with a perfect balance of sweet caramel malt and bitter orange/lemon rind hops. Just enough hops to linger on the tongue without being overwhelming.

bmeup (525) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2013
WEmp. Hazy orange/gold, persistent thick white head. Citrus and herbal aggressive hops are both bitter and aromatic. Tangy and spiky with light fizz, with a long bitter finish. Top DIPA this one.
