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.

ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, - 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.

AtronSeige (1164) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 24, 2016
Aroma: High piney, citrus, resin. Appearance: Clear, light gold body. Medium white head, rocky, good retention, lacing. Flavour: Medium-high bitterness. Medium hops, citrus, piney. Medium malt backbone, light maltiness, bready, toasty. Dry finish with lingering resin and bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium carbonation, creamy. Light warming. Overall: Bitter, but it still has a good supporting malt backbone. Hops are front an center and just popping! Bitterness is a bit low, but considering the beer is a few months old, I will expect some bitterness dropping out. 355 ml can, poured. Thanks Andre! 22A. Double IPA

Voodoo (537) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Can from B and B Beverages......pours a clear golden with a fluffy white head which lingers and laces......aroma of citrus, pine, melon.....taste is melon, peppery bittering, thick mouthfeel, citrusy, bread, finishing with a melon aftertaste. Just a bit too much oil on the lips, could stand to be dried out a bit, but a fair effort in the DIPA cat.

jamestulloch (3192) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 1, 2016
Can from Deeside Drinks Emporium. Clear golden/amber body with a medium white head. Steady carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of pine, orange, tomato juice and grapefruit. Flavour of nettles, honey, resinous hops and a peppery finish. Medium body with a very oily texture. Soft fizz. Delicious hop juice.

The_Osprey (5545) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2016
355ml can at home in Richmond as ’Heretic Evil Cousin’, 8.0%, 2 months since canning. Amber orange, pretty clear with a slight haze, lightly sparkling, foamy white head leaves thick lacing. Aroma is caramelised sugars, orange oil, orange boiled sweets. Body is smooth, a little foamy, soft carbonation. Taste is booze and caramelised sugars, citrus oils, tangy drying booze just about offsetting the sugary malt, pine and resin, spice and booze in the finish. Pretty simple. Notice to brewers: sweeter is not necessarily better.
