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.

20/V/17 - 33cl can from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ Marie’s place - canned: IV/5/16 (so more than a year ago!) BB: 25/VIII/17 (in European date format, on a small paper price-tag kind of sticker, which I thought very suspicious) (2017-601) Thanks to Alengrin for sharing the can!

Clear red brown beer, creamy light-beige head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet, caramel malts, fruity touch, honey, dried orange peel. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity touch, pretty bitter, little malty, caramel, hoppy. Aftertaste: bit sweet,caramel, bit oxidized, fruity notes, some mango, dried fruits, bitter finish. Decent beer, but way too old. Is probably much better fresh.

Draught sample at Copenhagen Beer Festival 2017. Slightly hazy, amber-red colour with a medium sized off-white head. Sweet aroma with caramel malts, toasted notes, coffee, chocolate, citrus fruits. Taste is light bitter. Medium bodied. Finishes dry and fruity bitter with spruce, caramel malts and some spicy notes. Very nice!

Alengrin (5369) - BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2017 Heretic’s red IPA, from a can bought at De Hopduvel in Ghent; the name confused me a bit, as I initially believed it to be a collab with the Evil Twin gypsy brewery but haven’t been able to find any connection with them whatsoever - so isn’t this the stuff lawsuits in the brewing world are made of? Anyway: off-white, moussy, stable, tad beige-ish head lacing in dots, over a lightly hazy bronze-ish copper coloured beer, indeed looking true to its specific substyle. Aroma of dried orange peel, toasted chestnuts, hard butterscotch candy, grapefruit, toasted onions, hazelnut oil, pink pepper, dried mango cubes. Clean fruitiness in the mouth, hints of dried peach and dito apricot, sweetish with a very dim sourishness, something vaguely metallic in the background but otherwise pleasantly oily, slick mouthfeel. Butterscotch-like and nutty, agreeable malt base typical for this style of beers, supporting an elegantly hoppy finish releasing retronasal dried grapefruit-, lightly pine- and toasted onion-like aromas as well as establishing a drying, spicy, soft but still very adequately IPA-like bitterness. Nice beer, no game changer perhaps, but well-made, tasty, nicely dry and aromatic in spite of the fact that this was apparently an older can.

Rigtig flot mørkerød øl med pænt skum. Lækker bitterhed med god balance til sødmen. Kraftig humlesmag uden at det bliver alt for bittert. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is pine, caramel malts and a slightly Black IPA quality. The flavor is grapefruit, caramel malts, fruit and a mix of mild sweetness and spicy/bitter finish.
