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.

650ml bomber from Deguchiya, Tokyo. Poured into a snifter. Beautiful mahogany amber color with a nice eggshell colored head. Caramel, dark buckwheat honey, granola bar, pine needles, grassy aromas present. Well balanced on the palate, sweet and dry finish from the hops. Really nice piney hop taste with sweetness from the malt.

Deep mahogany hue with a tight tan head with good stickiness. Aroma is candied orange syrup, burnt sugar, soft black pepper. Good flavor -- bright orange juice and a flash of peel, another hint of black peppercorns, a sweet-leaning finish of caramel. Very well-balanced. Soft medium body. Very nice.

Dark gold with a nice orange cast. Large dense white head. Big pine aroma. Flavor of malt with a big resiny hops component. Great balance of hops and malt. Full bodied with a long malt/hop finish. Great DIPA!

Smells beautiful. Of grapefruit and passionfruit with sweet biscuit aroma. Pours dark ruby red with fine tan head. Ginger snap biscuit then the hops come bundling in quickly moderate but not overpowering bittering with a fruit salad tang. Tropical fruit and citrus finish.
