Im a total hop head and this beer is one of the best DIPA's i have had the chance to try. Pours a deep golden color with al alright head. Smell is very centered around pine with some nice malt sweetness on the nose. Very nice caramel flavor and it probably wins as best caramel flavor in a beer i have ever had. I will be returning for this beer for sure if i can get my hands on it.

12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a hazy copper color with a half finger head and some lacing.

S: Citrus hops along with some sweet bready malts to balance it out. A hint of alcohol.

T: Very much like the nose with some caramel flavors as well. Hides the alcohol well.

M: Medium to heavy bodied with good carbonation. Smooth!

O: I enjoyed this beer quite a bit. It's my first Evil Twin brew, and I'm definitely satisfied. It almost tastes like an Oak Aged Double IPA. Nice balance and flavor.

I had the opportunity to buy this beer in Germany.

A - A brown orange haze is looking at me through the glass as a hat it wears an orange, white and yellow tainted foam. Or does this sound i had to many beer, :)

S - A lemon-grass field with some flowers andpine trees along the edges.

T - There is an unexpected mango and pineapple flavor in the taste, very nice and superbly done. Sweet and bitter too.

M - Medium carbonation, the bitter finish is a bit to strong and almost murky.

O - A superb imperial IPA, a truly lovely taste.

2 oz pour into tasting glass. The rest made it into the suggested "black and tan."

A: Pours a brilliant translucent copper with bright apricot highlights. 1-finger head settles quickly and leaves a bit of creamy lacing.

S: Tons of melon, grapefruit, honey and citrus. A small amount of mint comes through in the tail. Whatever the hop bill on this is, it's beautiful.

T: Lush melon up front, followed by citrus and strawberry. Honey and an extremely bitter hop flavor dominate the middle and end of this. Very sweet, as well.

M: Mild carbonation, yet very thick and resinous.

O: On its own, I liked this a bit better than the "Yin," although the blended combo is fantastic.

A solid standalone IPA, but blend em' up!
