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.

Great use of hops...and they add them by the ton. While the aroma is amazing, the lightness of the beer is a bit off for a DIPA. The ABV is completely unnoticeable - to the point that there should be more. The hop flavor doesn’t just stand infront of the malt flavor, it fully eclipses it. I would have preferred there to be a bit more malt in there...not to mute the hops, but to give it more of a appearance, palate, and abv backbone. A great NorCal hop bomb.

Bomber poured into a Stein. Nice translucent dark golden appearance with moderately thin lacing that pretty much dissolves the head about halfway down. Taste is pineapple grapefruit that sort of takes a back seat to the forward hop bitterness that takes a front seat along for this ride. Has a nice kick as well. I like it.

5/7/15 from bomber dated 1/15/15 lot 204. Amber color with one finger head. Good piney hops aroma. Pretty well balanced slightly heavy on hops side with a little bitter aftertaste. Quite good and similar to Pliny the Elder. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber pours hazy yellow with fluffy white persistent head. Fruity, dank nose. Huge tropical flavors on the palate: mango, pineapple, papaya. Overall, nice balance between malt and hops, lush flavors, no piney west coast hop aroma. Very nice!

Golden honey pour with a small eggshell head. Oily orange rind, bright grapefruit pith, and juicy tangelo flesh. Assertive. Affordable. Aggressive. A+!

bubbleflubber (1933) - 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 (5158) - 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.
