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.

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.

One of the best red IPAs I have had to date. Rich malty characteristics are perfectly balanced with crisp, fresh, citrusy hops.

It pours brown with a light brown head. It has the sweet smell of dried fruit, caramel malts, a hint of citrus. It has a sweet taste with citrus and floral hops, a bit of caramel and roast. It is bitter on the way down, but not overly. It has a medium bodied texture as well.

VertBaconStrips (2144) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
It’s 8:44, I’m deep in the trees and light has pretty much vanished. Good thing I brought proper glassware! It poured out of a bottle so I’ll assume it looks like a beer. Light from the phone has it quite dark. +1C. I’m hitting up dark caramel, mild roast in the finish. In the dark I can hear the sound of Canadian geese wings performing their whistly song. My cold nose is also hitting up an orangy peach aroma. Mild pine and a citrus tang. This seems like the between point of a normal IPA and a black IPA. This is quite tasty but much much colder than I’d normally drink one at thanks to Mother Nature. The maltiness has won me over. 9:02 and the bomber is absorbed.

mcberko (8276) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours a dark red with a small off-white head. Nose brings out piney and resinous hops, and light caramel to back. Flavour is well-balanced, with a good balance of piney hops and toasted caramel bready malt to balance. Hoppy and malty in good balance. Really nice.

BOLTZ7555 (2919) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 4, 2015
14 karat pour with a bright ivory crown. Assertive, both in flavor and aroma. Not incredibly complex but inviting. Orange peel, tangerine pith, and lemon zest. A solid IPA...missing the ’Strong Ale’ qualities. Mis-categorized.

reebtogi (4555) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 3, 2015
650ml bomber pours a deep amber color with a finger and a half of white head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is tropical fruits and chocolate with some roasted grains and herbal notes. Taste is a bold citrus and herbal hop bitterness with a chocolate and tropical fruity sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, this is possibly the best red ale that I have tried to date. I really enjoyed tasting this one.

bubbleflubber (1914) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pours a deep amber into the glass, with a frothy 2-finger eggshell head that retains well, leaving streaked lacing. Nice malty nose with dank, woody-earthen hops. Flavors of caramel malt, grapefruit, lemon, citrus zest and peel, piney bitters that finish well, delicate but lingering appropriately. The mouthfeel is round with a substantial, complex palate and medium-full body. Very nice ASA, or Red IPA, whichever classification it falls under.

Sold red. Malt forward, which I like. Very flavorful considering the relatively low ABV.

Iphonephan (3965) - McLean, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2015
On draft at Trio in Kill Devill HIlls, NC. Pours a clear brownish amber with an ecru head. Nutty nose. Malty flavors with some roast notes. Smooth, slightly bitter finish.

Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Dark reddy brown pour with a thin off white head. Sweet malts and grapefruit hoppy nose. Flavour had caramel malts in tandem with some citrus sodden hop. Soft and delicate. Spot on bitterness for the style. Lovely beer.
