Good, but I recommend the Molotov Cocktail Imperial IPA.

Very hazy as there was quite a bit of yeast in the bottle. Smell is slightly of honey malt. Taste is malt first, then quite the bitter punch. Some earthy and floral hop undertones. This stays interesting throughout.

Although this is an imperial iPA it is more smooth than most IPAs I have had and is one of my favorites.

If you want a beer that conjures up thoughts of Satan starting a brewery to try and imbibe mortals to death (with tasty beers) for his ever-growing army of the undead, nothing beats Evil Twin... or Heretic... err, in any case Evil Twin does well to invoke images of hangovers the day after with brews that generally sit above double digits ABV and Yang is no exception at 10%. An IIPA that promises a skull-crushing Black & Tan with the sister Yin Imperial Stout, a combination “I surely would if I could”.

Poured from a 355ml bottle into a Duvel tulip.

A: You know I love it when yeast flocculates in my glass and Yang brings it to the table (literally) with a classic amber yeasty body and thin but-we-expected-that white lace ring. 8/10.

S: More on the funky/malty side than other Imperial IPAs. The aroma is: sourdough, black tea, dry malt and an earthy note. Not as pleasant as it sounds, I do enjoy the above flavours but for some reason as an aroma it is a touch discordant. 6/10.

T: The palate shifts across towards a sharp resin and alcohol note, yes it is 10% ABV but after the delightfully even 8.8% 8 Wired Super Conductor I feel a tad deceived here. Flavour is: Caramel malt, dry crackers, earthy hops, hints of black tea and a bitter orange aftertaste accentuating that wine spirit character. Another sip helps it come through considerably better given my initial impression... actually this isn’t bad, not great but still at 10% ABV... yeah, I could go another. 8/10.

M: Medium bodied with a light carbonation, could be heavier (and fizzier). 5/10.

D: Yeah, I change my mind, this beer is a monster - overly bitter and sharp with alcohol in the aftertaste... there’s a white wine (almost Grappa) spirit flavour riding my tongue like the devil, I’m already reaching for the Ibuprofen and Codeine tablets with a glass of water. If it wasn’t so sharply alcoholic this would be an excellent brew, regrettably it’s too much for me... and I don’t say that often. 6/10.

Food match: Ibuprofen and Codeine tablets with a glass of water... I’m already getting a hangover dammit.
