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.

OleR (4770) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2013
0.65 L bottle, kindly shared by GrOve. Pours a dark amber body with good clarity. Mediumsized off-white head. Quite bold hop aroma, reminscent of grapefruit, leaves, earth and resin. Nicely balanced by toasted, breadcrust scented malts. Sweetish, toasted/mildly roasted and buiscuity malt base. Fruity and resinous bitterness. Medium full. Balanced fruity bitter and malty ending. Very likable.

Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours brown with a large head. Nose shows herbal, spicy and piny hops along with some biscuity malt and a minty note. Very similar flavours: herbal, minty and piny hops alongside some toasty malt hidden underneath followed by a sharp, aggressive bitterness. Carbonation is a little over the top.

A decent red, a little on the hoppy end. Pours a beautiful red with a tan head. Smells of hops, nothing else. Taste starts fruity, but quickly turns hoppy. Not a huge bitter aftertaste though. Had at tap at the Bay Area Craft Beer Festival ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Guerde (1161) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2013
(bomber from bhensonb) Pours a semi-clear dark red color with a large light tan to cream colored head that leaves a bunch of lacing and retains well. Aroma is very fresh and potent with grapefruit, light pine, and mint showing up in abundance. This smells really similar to Indeed’s Day Tripper. Light bit of toastiness emerges from the hoppy depths to provide a counterbalance and remind you that there’s a bit of malt character here. The flavor is substantially more malty and balanced with a pleasant caramel undertone matched with clean and fresh minty hops. A little bit of iced tea here. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is appropriate. Overall a pretty tasty strong ale. Thanks Bill!
