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.

Sampled in a bomber. A really smooth and flavorful red ale. Well made and crisp to the mouth. Quality.

CelticBrew (859) - 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.

Pours reddish brown. A great citrus hoppy aroma. Another flavor is lurking that I cannot put my finger on. Powerful but really nice. Now I want to try more Heretic beers.

Love the expression of hops in the aroma and flavor, supportive malt adds to the complexity, wonderful.

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."

Pours dark copper color with tan head. Toasted malt, citrus, and caramel aromas. Toasted malt and citrus flavor with a touch of sweetness. Medium body with average carbonation.

maddmatt639 (281) - Pacifica, California, USA - NOV 2, 2014
No retention and light lacing. Smells of floral, sweet malt and oranges. Tastes of pineapple, grapefruit and floral. Bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bnoel09 (444) - Elk Grove, California, USA - OCT 10, 2014
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.

Fatehunter (1399) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Pours two fingers of head on a clear dark straw colored body. The aroma is rich grapefruit and lemon with some brown sugar in the background. The taste starts with big lemon bitterness, but the (slightly caramel) malt quickly tames it. Great balance. The texture is softer. Great profile.

"The balance of this beer has definitely leaned towards the malt. Don’t know the age, but the main presence of the hops is bitternes rather than floral aromatics or flavor. Too bad too, cause the malt is rich and tasty, but what’s left of the other half of the beer took a little away from the overall enjoyment."

Really delicious!! good colour, great aroma, good malty balance with hoppiness that is just enough (well its never enough now is it). But, just enough that those hoppy burps remind you of why you love beer. Good beer. Look, its really good. how does it hide 6.8% so well?? well I can assure you that this is a new favorite of mine.
