COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Evil Cousin is Hereticís 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 canít get enough hops. Join us on the dank side.

jazz88 (2665) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle. Yellow color with a white head. A strong wet pine aroma with a nice floral flavor and a bitter mouthful. There is nothing mellow about this beer. It hits you upfront with its aggressive hop profile, and it finishes with lingering bitterness and hop flavors.

Foffern (1685) - BodÝ, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2016
Can at home. Pours a slightly hazy orange colour with an off-white head. Aroma with lots of pine, ammonia, apricot and some caramel, spicy hops and dry hay. Lots of grassy hops in the flavour along with citrus, pine and some caramel. Has a slick and soft mouth feel, full-bodied and medium bitterness. A rich and hoppy IIPA, but well-balanced.

Medium offwhite head doesnít last. Clear still deep yellow body. Tropical fruit and pineapple aroma with alcoholic notes. Sweetish toffee and tropical fruit taste with pineapple notes. Fullish body. Mild, slightly hot mouthfeel. Dryish resiny tropical fruit aftertaste with grassy spicy floral notes. Decent malt base, and clear, vivid hop flavours on top. Balanced and drinkable. (0.355l can, not sure where from.)
