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.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2015
Can from Bottlecraft, Hanley. Pours dark ruby with a light tan head. In your face hop aroma, sweet syrup, overly hopped, alcohol warmth. Could be much better, no balance. They’ve gone overboard on this. Shame.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle:   Brown sugar like color, deep reddish hue, moderate frothy sandy head, fairly clingy lacing.   Soft candied citrus peel on the nose.   Otherwise malty, a little bready, with some slight biscuit.   Pithy up front, malty, some citrus peel, slight sweetness, moderately bitter.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   As it warms it gets a little sweet earl gray tea like presense.   Otherwise a little caramel, pith and peel on the finish while remaining a little bready.   Tiz OK for a Red.   Actually kinda wished it were a bit more hoppy.

The_Osprey (5545) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2015
12 fl oz can at home, 6.8% canned 25/06/15. Very dark red or brown, small foamy tan head, light lacing. Aroma is earthy, cranberry, rye and spice. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is sweet and caramelly, spice, dried cherry, some seaweed notes, resinous with a balancing bitterness. Too sweet but it grew on me.
