COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This blood-red ale may not be what you might expect from a malty and hoppy craft beer. Evil Twin has a rich malt character, without being overly sweet. It has a huge hop character, without being overly bitter. It is a great example of a bold, rich, balanced craft beer, without being heavy and hard to drink in quantity. Our Evil Twin is only bad because it is too good to resist.

A nice mildly hopped dark ipa. Good balance of roasted malts and hop bitterness. Very slight astringent taste to my palate. Overall slightly above average for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

theOptimator (362) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Aroma is big resin-y hops forward with sweet caramel malt and hint of chocolate. Appearance is dark brown with a bit of ruby red, froth yoff white head retaining well. Taste is well balanced with hop bitterness and sweet malt... caramel and chocolate. How flavoring blends right in and lifts up the malt. Palate is medium plus. A drinkable beer though. Nice amount of alcohol without being a monster beer. Overall a well crafted beer. Fun to drink and flavors are all quite nice. Could use a little more malt depth if Im being picky, but my can says it is almost 6 months since canning. Will likely buy this again, good solid beer.

Hungover (72) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 30, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2016 starts off pretty boozy but turns into a sweet malt and finishes with hops. The malt is sweet but not rot your teeth sweet and its quite enjoyable. Well balanced.

Good beige head over hazy dark chestnut beer; Very fruity & hoppy nose. Black IPA flavour, faintly roasted, grapey and fruity hops. Bitter flavours, even wry in the finish. Dry, wry MF, dry bitter aftertaste. Quite nice dark IPA!

Can. Pours ruby red with minimal head. Big fruity hops on the nose with a hint of peaches and grapefruit. Malty in the taste but well balanced by a hoppy bitterness. Neither are over powering. Long hoppy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
