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.

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

BOLTZ7555 (2932) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 4, 2015
Golden honey pour with a small eggshell head. Oily orange rind, bright grapefruit pith, and juicy tangelo flesh. Assertive. Affordable. Aggressive. A+!

bubbleflubber (1918) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2015
Pours a translucent orange-amber into the glass, with a nice foamy head that reduces to soapy lacing. The nose is of solid citrus and pine aromas. Flavors of grapefruit, orange, citric zest and peel finish with a piney, resinous forest of hops! Gorgeous flavors here, accompanied by a very drinkable mouthfeel, semi-zesty to the palate with a medium body. Great substance and complexity, but never feels boozy or too heavy. Superbly put-together, this is one fine DIPA!

Beerman6686 (5057) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2015
This poured a semi hazy orange color with a white head. Aroma was citrusy Hood, caramel and booze. Flavor was citrusy and grapefruity, sweet and a bit malty, bitter. Old school

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

daknole (10045) - 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 (2252) - 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.
