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.

ComradeK (1071) - The Vale of Dundas, - JAN 14, 2013
650ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts reasonably well without leaving much lacing. Strong pine resin and grapefruit hops aromas mix with smoother toffee malt. Pine and chilli hops notes up front lead into some potently bitter citrus. Pine resin hops and toffee malt mix in the mid-palate, with the pine resin persisting through to the finish, where it is joined by grapefruit. There is a bitter herbal aftertaste. This is a nice, potently hoppy imperial IPA, and a very satisfying beer.

willisread (1093) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2015
Tap at Watering Hole. Hazy golden color with a nice soapy white head. Great aromas of green pineapple, tangerine, papaya and bright citrus flavors along with some resin on the nose as well. Taste is fairly similar with the tangerine and some mango coming on the finish. Good bitterness. Medium body. Awesome.

Slightly hazy orange with golden hueas and a small white head. Aroma is piney, resinous hopiness. Flavor is sharp piney hops with hust enough malt to back up, with a bitter grapefruit/ pineapple aftertaste. Medium palate, a bit too boozy.

malrubius (2183) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle from Brewfest. Bright copper with lasting head and lace. Resiny piney aroma with some toffee and booze. Toasted malts with some peachy fruit and extremely assertive resiny piney lingering bitterness. Medium full body thick. Very good. I think VT-style DIPA has superceded West Coast style. Nevertheless, this is a bold and tasty beer.

Bulk_Carrier (2876) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Bottled dated 05/11/2015. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Light stringy lacing remained around the glass in a slightly messy sort of way. The smell had a bitter citrus rind weaving in between sweet pine and leading into a full bittersweet feel in and around my nose. The taste was fully bittersweet grabbing my taste buds for the full effect of the punch of bitterness in the taste. There’s a light bitter to semi-sweet citrus aftertaste. The finish was quick and left a light dryness. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionable feel about it. Carbonation maintains a good level for a DIPA allowing the bitterness to give the appropriate pleasing kick for DIPA fans. Overall, I really liked this one. Its everything a DIPA should be as it always keeps its bittersweetness all the way through the beer. Definitely again.
