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.

ComradeK (1248) - Sydney, - JAN 14, 2013
650ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts reasonably well without leaving much lacing. Strong pine resin and grapefruit hops aromas mix with smoother toffee malt. Pine and chilli hops notes up front lead into some potently bitter citrus. Pine resin hops and toffee malt mix in the mid-palate, with the pine resin persisting through to the finish, where it is joined by grapefruit. There is a bitter herbal aftertaste. This is a nice, potently hoppy imperial IPA, and a very satisfying beer.

Medium fluffy head, hazy, golden. Sweet oily citrus in the aroma, some floral notes. Full body, medium bitterness turning into a solid grapefruit bitter finish. Some tropical fruit in the taste. Not great, but very well

beer-yum (1825) - 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

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
