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.

Justin on the Sunday Session always raves about this. I?ve had lots of Heretic before but this is my first Evil Twin. It is hoppy for a red ale, but is VERY well balanced. I see myself seeking this out in the future.

Well balanced for a hop bomb with some nice malt/hop interplay. Well made and deadly drinkable.

On tap @ Heretic.. Pours a dark copper/red with white head. Light lacing. Smells of malt, citrus and pine. Taste is balanced and mellow. Great beer if you want good flavor and drinkability. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer has an amazing deep red beer. It has the aroma and flavor of blood orange. The hop flavors are balanced by a malty complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty tasty. A bit too fizzy maybe, and the thin head disappears quite quickly. Darker than I expected.

Pour on tap at GABF, dark amber pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big grapefruit, orange, slight pineapple into lots of caramel, toffee, slight spicy notes in there as well with a hint of grass. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, lots of sweet sugars into some orange, grapefruit, sweet fruity notes, slightly bittering grass and spice notes, finishing fairly bitter.

shoulderbroken (2842) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 13, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2015 Tap at iBrew Shinbashi. Dark red brown colour, small thin gold head. Taste is ultra hoppy, cat pee, quite earthy, bit of citrus. Aroma is same ultra hops, overwhelming cat pee. Bit of sweet maltiness there too, but almost totally hidden by hop hit. Bit of a sledgehammer. Not very subtle. Not horrible but not my thing. Brutish. Rerate: Jan 15. Bottle. Light spice, light resin hop. Nowhere near as full on as last time. Taste is malt dominated. Little bit of bitterness, bit more caramel, bit of black treacle. Brown bread. Good stuff. Hugely different score.
