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.

Poured from bomber bottle bought at bevmo. Aroma - hop forward pineapple and citrus. Candy and dank pine. Appearance - light gold and hazy. Thick off white head. Flavor - zesty fruit and citrus. Nice hint of caramel malt and dark fruits balancing the hop profile. Clean yeast profile which helps the hops shine through. Mouthfeel - medium carbonation. Finished nice and dry. Very refreshing. Overall - very nice DIPA from Heretic. Great drinkable balance between the malt, hops, and alcohol. Very well made beer. ---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

PorterPounder (8226) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2017
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.

3.7
beer-yum (1866) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 19, 2017
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
