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. 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.

355ml can into shaker. Slightly hazy golden beer with solid white head. Laces well. Practically no carbonation, the odd lonely bubble. Nose is mostly malt with earthy hops in the background. Good body, smooth oily texture. Surprisingly easy drinking at 8%! Finish is subdued bitterness with a hint of fruit and warming alcohol. Nice one.

From a can. So smooth, so much citrus, so freaking delicious I’d happily drink this bad boy all day, I’d probably be dead by the end of the day but hey.

reggiedunlop (3671) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2016
Clear golden pour with a thick white head...excellent retention and lacing. Aroma is herbal with juicy pineapple and grass. Flavor follows suit...a bit of a scalliony note too...really tasty if you like the herbal hops. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a dry herbal/piney/resinous bitter finish. Awesome.

djoeye (3800) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2016
Aroma; pine, grapefruit, hops, pale malts. Look; frenetic foam, near clear golden body. Taste; blended resin, grapefruit, pale malts - herbal peely finish. Feel; carbonation problems, overflow and then flat. Overall; unfortunate batch. [33cl.can 8% BB.03.03.2017 B@Vinmonopolet]

Foffern (1693) - Bodø, 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.

Poured from the six pack of cans taste is spicy hops, sticky, easy drinking and just the right amount of dry, hard to believe it’s 8%

Shark_Pants (613) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 23, 2016
355ml can. Slightly hazy golden amber with small white head. Big citrus aromas - tangerine, mandarin with floral notes and caramel. The taste has a strong caramel and toasty malt backbone, big grapefruit pine, floral notes. Medium bodied, sticky and dank. Well balanced for such an aggressive beer.

Can. Aroma has lots of rasin and pine. Taste starts with some bitterness and has quite a lot of warmth from the ABV. Medium carbonation
