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.

Was looking forward to this one. Very dark red, ruby highlights bring it short of brown. Nose is rich hoppy with some malty tones - hinting the devil is in the flavour. Flavour is more powerful than the aroma. Soft, light, but rich maltiness. Huge piney hop character, classic US IPA hop profile on the malt backbone. Lovely mouthfeel with moderately assertive bitterness. Light sweetness from the crystal malts follow through nicely on the finish, but the beer is still quaffable and nowhere near cloying (more than expected after reading the label). Great beer - will be brewing Jamil’s recipe.

Smells beautiful. Of grapefruit and passionfruit with sweet biscuit aroma. Pours dark ruby red with fine tan head. Ginger snap biscuit then the hops come bundling in quickly moderate but not overpowering bittering with a fruit salad tang. Tropical fruit and citrus finish.

CelticBrew (884) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Pours from bomber a dark amber color with a frothy off-white/khaki head and excellent lacing. Aroma is a mix of strong citrus, tropical hops with some sweet toasted caramel and biscuit malt and a bit of pine. Flavour of pine and citrus hop flavor and caramel and dark fruit malt. Ends somewhat creamy, drinkable beer.

Bomber ours ruby brown with thin tan head. Malty, but not too sweet. Hoppy, but not too bitter. Overall, a unique style for a "red IPA."
