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.

Keg in the Junkyard, Nottingham. Pours ruby with a frothy cream head. Nice pine aroma. The taste is big and bitter with spice and resinous pine over sweet stewed fruits. Nice lingering finish. Nice beer.

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 (5463) - 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.

juffage (171) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2015
Can from work. Dark red. Pretty heavy, but seems like the heavyness and malt overpowers the hops. Wasn’t very refreshing. More bready and quite sweet. Doughy. Not fruity or crisp. Seemingly pointless.

jake65 (3244) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Can. Dark amber color with a thick tan head. Plenty of sheet lacing. A pleasant aroma of citrus and florals with moderate malt. Taste is on the sweeter side, hoppy, and nutty. Good hop presence, but not bitter. Very smooth. Feels like it works as intended.

EithCubes (5432) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 14, 2015
200th rating for this beer. Tap at Bainbridge BH. Dark brown with a dense beige head. Woody nose of hops and wood, resin, body bitter and clean, getting some black IPA chocolate clash. Light sweetness that lingers too much, touch fruity, don’t like the caramel. Smooth, moderately refreshing though heavy, clean, hoppy – craftsmanship is good but I just detest the recipe, right out of the gate.

Rubí limpio y oscuro con espuma marfil compacta. Aromas de malta caramelo y herbáceo. Cuerpo medio y maltosa. Sabor inicial maltoso, toffee, con sabor herbáceo y final de amargor seco.

Towey1989 (1505) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2015
Keg at Brewdog Shoreditch. A clear ruby brown colour with a fizzy beige head. Aroma of caramel, some toffee, pine, red grape, spruce and subtle peach, maybe grapefruit too. Taste of caramel, toffee, strawberry and a big hoppy flavour of grapefruit, peach, red grape and resin. Medium bodied and a slightly oily texture. A bittersweet, caramel finish with some resinous hop bitterness. Such a well balanced beer. Sweet caramel, toffee malts and citrusy grapefruit, resin bitterness. Good beer from this brewery.

Nocturne (1674) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2015
Keg at PSBH, Manchester. Very nice dark red shade. Short head. Rings of lacing. Piney, caramelly and toasty. Fruity in a red grape and red apple sort of way. Very bitter and without much sweetness to balance that out. I like it but would appreciate a little more sweetness.
