COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Evil Cousin is Heretic’s take on a West coast imperial IPA. This beer is a bold, in-your-face hop monster. It has a light, easy drinking malt character that allows the hops to stand out. The hop character in this beer is intentionally on the dank side; big, sticky, and aggressive. This beer is for those of you who can’t get enough hops. Join us on the dank side.

22-oz. bomber into a pint glass at my house on Nov. 13, 2012 (purchased at Mission Trails Market for $7.99 on Nov. 13, 2012). Caramel amber with three fingers of thick frothy white head. Decent wet foamy retention on the top and the sides. Smelled a nice dose of citrus hops. Got grapefruit, tangerine, lime, skunky pine and caramel (light). The skunk lingered on. Tasted very hoppy right from the get-go. Got tangerine and grapefruit bitter hops up front with a strong bite of orange peels and alcohol lingering after. I kept waiting for the aftertaste to be good, but it never really came. Definitely missing something. Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively (above average) carbonation. Skunky, bitter finish. Was a bit disappointed overall, especially for the $7.99 price tag. It was missing something, came up just a tad short.

A nice piney DIPA. Instead of being called Evil Cousin it should be called Evil One Night Stand because it's going down easy and will likely make me regret how many I had in the morning. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy and limited bubbles. Light gold oatmeal color. Sweet followed by tangy. Some creamy full mouth taste. Tangy lasting on edge of tongue. Little sharp initially but turns into very nice IPA. Enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Palm Beach Gardens, Fl. -Total Wine & more - 12 oz can. Pours a slightly sparkling light golden. Light, sticky off-white head that clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma has some sweet doughy accents, some piney essence. Flavor is full-bodied with plenty of fresh hoppy grapefruity goodness with some maple syrup and passion fruit thrown in there for good measure. Sweet doughy accents in the back end with a hint of vanilla. Sticky thick mouthfeel. Very solid.
