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.

JLLSU (238) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Bomber---> snifter. Pours a DARK ruby, almost brown with a one finger fluffy tannish head. Smells of caramel/chocolate malts and grapefruit. Taste is a great balance of roasty, sweet malt and a tiny bit of piney hop bite. Nice medium body with good carbonation. This is a finely balanced beer and a joy to drink.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Draft at Creek Monkey. Pours a deep but clear brownish-amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and piney hops, dark and caramel malts, chocolate, and earth. Flavor of grapefruit, pine resin, caramel, chocolate, soap, earth, and orange peel. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, bitter mouthfeel. Good beer, and seemed really fresh.

garza (567) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - NOV 5, 2012
Pours a dark red colour with a frothy beige head. Flowerly aroma with spices, pine and some sweet touch. Hopy and malty taste with some sweetnes too. Medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation, and a dry long somehow sweet-bitter finish. Good.

hops on the nose cloudy red with a good head malt comes thru with the hops, complex and dry but oh, a disappointing lack of aftertaste just leaves you out there hanging

Ok beer. Has some good flavours but ends too quickly. Good hint of hops though.

joeneugs (3107) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 6, 2012
On draft. It pours a deep red color with an off white head. The aroma is very hoppy with pine, mild citrus and some dank. The flavor is more malt forward with some cherry, earth and pine. Nice bitter finish. A really good beer that seems to be stuck between an IPA and American Strong Ale. Tasty though.

fezzy (79) - California, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Pretty much like the commercial description promises. Very bold hop and malt profiles, without being sticky sweet or crushingly bitter. A nice, big, tasty American Red/American strong with plenty of pine and citrus hop flavor and caramel and dark fruit malt. A little heavy on the palate, but bitter enough to balance. Good.
