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.

Can sample at Växjö Ölfestival, thanks DM! Clear reddish amber with off white head. Aroma of resin, grapefruit, pine, spicy rye and caramel. Taste is nicely balanced, hoppy, nice clean maltiness, caramel, pine, resin and light fruit.

Good beige head over hazy dark chestnut beer; Very fruity & hoppy nose. Black IPA flavour, faintly roasted, grapey and fruity hops. Bitter flavours, even wry in the finish. Dry, wry MF, dry bitter aftertaste. Quite nice dark IPA!

Can. Pours ruby red with minimal head. Big fruity hops on the nose with a hint of peaches and grapefruit. Malty in the taste but well balanced by a hoppy bitterness. Neither are over powering. Long hoppy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tognetta (621) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 24, 2016
Marrom amadeirado, média turbidez, espuma bege cremosa de boa formação e persistência. Aroma de lúpulo fresco misturado com maltes caramelados, deliciosa. Paladar de leve/médio amargor e dulçor, equilibrada. Corpo leve e média carbonatação. Final maltado seguindo as impressões iniciais do aroma, lúpulo menos presente, amadeirada.

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. True, good beer - enjoyed the malt and hop. Was afraid it was going to be too much hops. I would drink it again. Good winter beer.

12oz can. Pours red with an off white head. Nice hop aroma. Note of citrus, pine, dark fruits, more. This is great! Nice surprise from a brewery I hadn’t heard of before. Gonna load up on more of this as well as try some of their other brews if I can find them.

maekchu (3202) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 16, 2016
Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Deep piney hop aroma, with caramel, roast, and grass. Clear dark reddish-brown color (kinda blood-like on pouring out), with a small head that dissipates quickly to a flat slickness. A dance of bitter hops and sweet medium roast maltiness, earthy, caramel, and some citrus. Medium body, but could use a little more carbonation. Well-balanced stuff. Fresh and zippy.

Capa (2556) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Grabbed a can of this in Korea and then promptly forgot about it till I was checking out of my hotel room. I popped it open and drank it down before leaving, glad I did. Nice fruity and malt profile. Candied citrus and a big caramel note linger throughout. Medium bitterness in the finish. Full bodied. Very good brew.
