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.

On tap at Rubicon for beer week. Thick head with lots of lacing on this one. Very nice brew! Sweet malt, with a good touch of bitter, maybe one of the best balanced brews I’ve had!

650ml bottle. Pours a murky deep chestnut, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves good lacing. Resinous, sappy hops dominate the aroma, with some fainter herbal and pine needle characteristics and some sweetish toffee malt. There are some quite faint pine needle notes, but the predominant initial flavour is resinous, herbal hops. These stay present, melding with dark, toffee malt to create a nicely balanced mid-palate. More smooth toffee leads into a finish of potent, sappy hops. There is a lingering bitter herbal aftertaste. Despite what is claimed on the label, this is most definitely not a red ale. It is, however, a powerfully hoppy, yet full-bodied, malty ale. Deftly balanced and very drinkable indeed.

Nice flowery aroma. Not too dark not much of a head. Not as malty as you’d think, more hoppy very easy to drink little bitter on the palate, but I like bitter very good beer

Poured from the bomber into a shaker. Clear ruby brown with a tan head. Aroma is a big dose of grassy and floral hops - smells like a wet hopped beer. Flavor starts with some caramel malt and leads right into all of the hop character. Again, a nice dose of fresh hops! Medium bodied with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Overall this is quite delicious and very fresh tasting.

Pours blood red. Nose is floral, citrus and loads of pine, hints of sweet malts. Flavor is very hop forward with a perfect melody of grapefruit, pine, sweet flowers, hints of honey even. No real bitterness. Lots of nice sweet malt to perfectly balance it out.

mkel07 (3641) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2012
650ml bottle. There is a lot of caramel malty aromas that burst from the glass. Pours a deep copper red with a deep thick looking beige head. Big bold strong flavour that sits well in the mouth and leaves a long lingering aftertaste. There is nothing evil about this.

Has some nice roasty notes as well a nice fresh hop scent. Has a nice light roast with not much of a bitter hop taste. Super smooth and complex, one of the best scents in a beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from growler, dark reddish brown with medium tan head. Nose is sweet, malty, caramel. Taste is somewhat balanced leaning to the sweet side. This baby is full bodied. Overall nice.

650 ml bottle. Pours a reddish-brown color with a medium khaki head that has fair retention. The aroma is pungent with dank C-hops, I get lots of grapefruit, limes, light pine and some oranges. The flavor, like the aroma, is a big blast of hops with abundant grapefruit and set in a hazelnut malt base. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry. Overall: I am impressed.
