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.

Good aroma, you can smell the hops trying to escape. Surprisingly firm and foamy head will stick around until the beer is gone. Monster hops, but the minimal malt balance is just right, doesn't fight the bitterness, but adds some complexity to the flavor and takes a tooth or two off the hops bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Restrained aroma in a golden pour. Hop forward balance with a rstrained fruity body but a big sustained bitter finish. An interesting variation on the style - and pretty much a benchmark of it.

It's hard to believe, but this diabolical little beer had me speaking in tongues! To start, Evil Cousin checked all of the right boxes for a solid,well-delivered IPA. It poured the color of burnt umber, albeit of a palish hue, and had a well-formed head that didn't quickly dissipated. The nose possessed citrus and pine, and I could detect notes of caramel too. The soft carbonation and silky texture were two surprises, but not the taste of citrus and caramel, much like the nose . A boozy, alcohol finish gave warning of its high alcohol content, but left me feeling refreshed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drink with me Cousin, as Hades comes in with the dawn Acacius LOvely inttro into the 12 oz can from Lifesource in Salem OR. $2 Deep yellow body, seesm ever so slightly hazy. Large rocky white head. Very aggresive resin, lemon and dank hoppiness in the aroma. Smooth yet bitter taste..the extreme dankness comes in at the end, but before that its quite fruity actually. Nice lighter palate for a IIPA..makes for better and more dangerous drinking! OK beer ..this is not my fav style but i can drink it easily

TorbenJensen (1528) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2017
Large white foam. The aroma is fresh with lots of exotic fruit and citrus. The flavor is short-lived malted with caramel malt, but soon a sweet hops of passion fruit, grape, peach and pine needles occur. The aftertaste is long and half dry.

brnandersen (3909) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2017
Draught sample at Copenhagen Beer Festival 2017. Clear, amber golden colour with a thin, white head. Fruity aroma with resin, grass, spruce, citrus, caramel malts and tropical fruits. Taste is bitter. Full bodied. Finishes dry and lasting bitter with rich caramel malts and a good hops bite. Old school - very enjoyable.

Stew41 (2025) - Phuket, THAILAND - MAY 1, 2017
Fierce hops and burning alcohol late. Not balanced but of course no lack of flavour and impact. Massively long finish but just burns (for ages).

minutemat (5546) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2017
355ml can, takeout from Tilt, Birmingham. Pours a misty gold, medium white head. Fresh, limey citrus nose. Taste continues, with moderate pine and exotic notes but seems to dry out quite swiftly. Quite chuggable for the strength.
