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.

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.

Nice deep brown with oily team head. Noise is caramel and some roasted malt, maybe some florals. Flavor is robust caramel, pumpernickel crust, with some faint citrus and floral hops. Light to medium mouthfeel.

IPAgutten79 (902) - Skui, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2016
Gylden ugjennomsiktig med høyt hvitt skum. Aroma av furu, gress og malt. Smaken er furu, mild karamell og sitrus. Søt, før en lun bitterhet gjør seg gjeldende. Smak av bær i ettersmaken. Medium konsistens.

jinroh (1102) - ESTONIA - JUN 29, 2016
Pours dark mahogany, reddish chestnut. Bit of beige foam that reduces into thinner film. Aroma has some malty happiness, rowan berries and red currants. Taste reveals nice red IPA character where you have strong malty backbone that contributes with berry-like flavours but also bread crust and bitterness. Hops are strong at the end, long ensuing dry bitter finish. Feels quite clear and relatively light, yet flavourful. Good one.

klaing (264) - Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Opaque chestnut with thin head. Nutty malts leading into grassy herby hops. Very dry finish with lingering flavors of both the malts and hops. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can at home. Aroma is toasted bready malts, caramel, fruity hops, grapefruit, pine resin. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and moderate to medium bitter. Body is medium. Both robust and refreshing, I like the malt/hop balance. Very good.

A nice mildly hopped dark ipa. Good balance of roasted malts and hop bitterness. Very slight astringent taste to my palate. Overall slightly above average for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

theOptimator (362) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Aroma is big resin-y hops forward with sweet caramel malt and hint of chocolate. Appearance is dark brown with a bit of ruby red, froth yoff white head retaining well. Taste is well balanced with hop bitterness and sweet malt... caramel and chocolate. How flavoring blends right in and lifts up the malt. Palate is medium plus. A drinkable beer though. Nice amount of alcohol without being a monster beer. Overall a well crafted beer. Fun to drink and flavors are all quite nice. Could use a little more malt depth if Im being picky, but my can says it is almost 6 months since canning. Will likely buy this again, good solid beer.
