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.

August 6th, 2012 - If youíre looking for brave new adventures with an Indian Jones-esque blend of adventure and daring-do, sample the Heretic Evil Twin Red Ale. If youíre looking for impeccably balanced and crafted flavors, you might want to pass. Itís a pretty beer to be sure, with a mysterious murkiness the color of a rusty brown puddle, but the nose is vitiated by a dirty, clumsy spicy scent that is overrun by the a chemical level whiff of alcohol. Clove and cinnamon are present, but they too smell more like industrial output at a large bakery than a freshly opened jar of fresh pastry ingredients. The flavor works on different dimensions entirely - smokey with an acidic coffee bitterness, and a weird low-grade bergamot tea off flavor that edges this glass closer to being a drain pour. As I mentioned earlier, that tea and citrus touch might be worth tasting just to put it into your mental scrapbook, but I donít think Iíll be coming back for seconds.
