Tasty DIPA worth trying. A great foamy head, lacey. Pine, Honey dew, fruit and complex tastes. Average mouthfeel, not a big malt bill.Well carbonated. Very good drinkability. A good introduction to this this "new brewer".Liam's bottle from NYC.

Bottled 2/14/13.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, grapefruit juice, and alcohol. Taste is much the same with caramel and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a high amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good that is tasty but strong and very bitter.

A: minimal head to speak of on a hazy amber with crimson hues body.

S: malty but very boozy with mild hops.

T: fairly malty with caramel and toasted malts. Hops are mostly candied fruits and sOme floral notes.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: malt forward IPA. fairly sweet. Not too memorable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is a deep shade of amber in color and clear with no visible carbonation. It poured with a thick ring of beige bubbles and some delicate lacing covering the surface.
S: There are light to moderately strong aromas of caramel malts and citrusy hops in the nose.
T: The hops contribute a moderate amount of bitterness and flavors of grapefruit to the taste, which also has some hints of malty sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is quite malty and tastes strong, but most of the alcohol is well hidden. There’s nothing overly special about the beer when it is tasted individually but it pairs very well when mixed in with the Evil Twin Yang, adding a nice amount of bitterness to the stout.

Thanks to krkearney. Served in a Mikasa tulip side-by-side with Yin, and also blended into a black and tan.

Pours a fairly-hazy copper-orange color with an insignificant white head and a thin collar. The nose brings some malty sweetness and alcohol plus some citrus hops. The flavor isn't quite as malty, but the hops still aren't quite there; it's more booze and malt. Bitterness is higher than would be expected from the flavor, but still not enough to counteract the sweetness. No real discernible alcohol presence. Decent enough, but I liked the stout portion better.

If IPA's are supposed to the beer most lopsided type of beer where balance is concerned, then this beer does its part by propelling hop bitterness and suppressing malt sweetness like very few have. Evil Twin really knows how to make a hoppy beer.

Yang pours with a dense visual texture- coppery-amber hues are heavily hazed and is a testament to the beer's unadulterated, unfiltered character. A thick blanket of foam rises to top the beer like meringue. Ivory white in its color, the beer shows tremendous staying power and laces with well defined rings with each sip.

Deep aromas of citrus fruit, tropical fruit, and botanical herbs create a highly floral bouquet that dances upon a caramelly, biscuity, malty stage. A tinge of alcohol tickles the nose and then fades back into the sharp hop notes.

Malt sweetness rushes onto the tongue to buffer it from the massive hop flavors to come. Understated firmness of biscuit malt, honey, and caramel provides the supple support for more aggressive flavors of grapefruit peels, orange zest, fresh cut grass, chives, and light cannabis to pierce the malts and gain command of the overall flavors. More mellow pineapple and melon flavors follow along with the growing bitterness that leads to a heavy pith and resin intensity that grips the back of the throat. Alcohol flavors hide behind the hops and sparsely shows its strength- dangerous for the beer's drinkability.

Again, the firm malt underpinnings show a stern creamy weight in mouthfeel as well. But like in taste, the malt structures soon quiver and fall apart- leaving the strong drying compounds of hops to refresh the palate and provide a high rate of drinkability. Warm but not hot, the beer concludes with mild leaf astringency and an echo of caramel and bread.

The long lingering bitterness begins to showcase the hops more like classic American IPA, but with its elevated strength, this hoppy side of karma is ideal for an Imperial Black & Tan.

another high alcohol hop bomb from the evil twin crew. this its a monster of an ipa, pours a thick sticky honey color with not much head, patchy lacing is really all, despite a rather aggressive pour. the nose is dank and in the west coast style, with more oily sticky hop presence. I smell some sweetness too, but somehow its a hoppy sweetness. the flavor is real bold and heavy hops, but they don't seem particularly unique to me. not sure the varietals here, but nothing stands out as fruity or piney or any other common hop family descriptor. some honey type sugars in the finish, and of course quite a bit of booze, especially once it hits room temp. a four pack provides about two appropriate servings. this stands out to me as an art form than some of the other evil twin beers, perhaps because of how heavy it is, thick almost, and a bit laborious to consume. still, excellent mix of flavors and a worthy buy for the lover of big hop beers.

Tried this one right before having the Yang. The pour was a murky copper color with a really good head on it. The lacing was very sticky and coated the glass really well with each sip. The smell was pretty hoppy and had some sweetness to it also. The taste was very good in my opinion. Lots of hops and some other flavors going on in there that i wasn't really sure of. I felt that it worked together though. The mouthfeel was on the thicker side and had a pretty nice oily feel to it. This beer was more enjoyable than the Yang in my opinion. I found that mixing them together is pretty good but I'd rather just have this IPA on its own.

12oz bottle - still have no idea what the hell 'taiji' is.

This beer pours a rather hazy, muddled bronzed amber hue, with three fingers of puffy, densely foamy, and ebulliently bubbly off-white head, which leaves some pleasant randomly webbed lace around the glass as things duly recede.

It smells of sweet, sugary caramel and toffee malt, almost equally saccharine citrusy orange, grapefruit, and pineapple fruit, a twinge of biscuity breadiness, a touch of white pepper, and further herbal, leafy hops. The taste is acrid citrus fruit pith - the usual suspects, bereft of their sugary fruitiness at first, gritty, grainy, and bready caramel malt, a weirdly subsequent Belgian candi sugar sweetness, some middling earthy honey notes, the ironic recently-cut green onions of my still simmering Kung Pao dinner, and further musty, dank herbal hops.

The bubbles are rather understated, and barely perceptible after a wee spell, the body medium-light in weight, and surprisingly smooth, in an undisturbed by the expected alcohol and hops dirge manner. It finishes actually off-dry, the complexly sugared malt still generally in charge, but at the behest of the sassy citrusy, herbal hops.

A pleasantly quaffable DIPA, the hops heady and worthy, no doubt, but restrained enough to allow for circumspection without immediate overbearance. I didn't actually have this with the Yin - that one was many moons ago - but given recent introspection on the matter, that may not be the best of ideas. At any rate, a stellar strong IPA, the hops and malt duly present, and quite flavourful.

Poured into a small tulip glass a deep copper/bronze with a nicely formed 1/2 finger head that left a few broken chunks of lace as it settled.Big pine notes in the nose,quite resiny,sweet honey and sweet alcohol stand out as well.A big sweet DIPA like way to many out there on the palate,brown sugar,alcohol, and drunken fruit mixed with underlying resiny hops,the alcohol really hits after the beer warms.It's a DIPA like many it's sweet and alcoholic,par for the course.

Thanks for sharing this one, Bobby.

A: The beer pours a fairly dark color for an IPA. I'll call it copper. There's a short lived off-white head.

S: A sweet nose with a lot of toffee and caramel, and even a bit of candied citrus peel. Some decent hop character to it. Sort of woody and piney, slightly herbal. A little bit of alcohol heat is noticeable.

T: Very resinous and piney with an almost rosemary-like herbal quality. Candied orange peel along with some brown sugar and pineapple. A moderate to high bitterness is present.

M: Medium to full in terms of the body with a medium level of carbonation.

O: Despite being a bit sweet, I liked the flavors a fair amount. I don't know if this is a repeat drinker, but not bad.

11.2 ounce bottle - $6.99 at Olde Crabapple Bottle Shoppe in Alpharetta, Georgia. Best before 2015.

Appearance: Pours out a seriously hazed, caramel colored body with a finger's worth of slightly yellowed froth.

Smell: A blend of pale, biscuity, bready, and caramel maltiness with fair degree of intensity implying a beer with a dense maltiness, but it's cut by notes of tropical fruits, citrus, and a wafting shot of liquor.

Taste: Biscuity, bready malts sweetened with touches of caramel and toffee fold into tastes of honeydew, orange marmalade, pineapple, and a drizzle of peach schnapps. Robustly bitter. The gentler marmalade quality joins the bitterness for an altered taste of fresh-cut bitter orange peel. Being relatively lightly carbonated, the bitterness and warming alcohol presence just sorta sits on the tongue beyond the fruity finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium-light carbonation. Has a viscous, almost oily texture to it.

Overall: A big, sweet, slow-sipping DIPA that holds together well enough for a 10% brew.

Served in a shaker pint glass.

Well if you're gonna have the Yin, you've gotta follow it up with the Yang, right? It pours a mostly clear amber-straw topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises pine, grapefruit peel, light leek, and buttery toffee. The taste brings in more of the same, though the leek is a bit stronger, and some spicy mint and light menthol notes find their ways in as well. A general sweetness falls across the tongue, coating everything thereupon like mosquitoes in amber. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation, a syrupy feel, and a kinda dry finish. Overall, a fairly solid DIPA, but one that's too viscous and 120 Minute-esque for its own good.

Poured from a bottle into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a mostly clear reddish amber with a half finger of fluffy off white head that fades to a thin layer on top of the pour.

Smell: This is a very sweet smelling beer. Citrus hops with some apricot and grapefruit peel. There is a strong malt presence with some brown sugar and dark fruit. Mild warming alcohol in there as well.

Taste: Sweet malt hits you first. Some date/raisin notes as well as brown sugar. The hops show up shortly after and add citrus peel and fruit notes. There is a strong bitterness in the finish along with some alcohol.

Mouthfeel: The body is on the thick side and a bit syrupy. The carbonation is very smooth with a slick finish.

Overall: This is an intense beer. The finish is really bitter and biting. I still enjoyed it, but I'm not sure that I would want another.

Bottled 03/12/12

Pours an effervescent copper/orange with 3 fingers of cream colored head. Crazy lacing & nice head retention

S: Doughy with leafy hops, pears & toffee

T: Doughy, leafy & piney hops, some tea like tannin & a touch or orange rind up front. Some pear notes once warm, more pineyness & woody hops, a bit of toffee sweetness, loads of pineyness too. Finishes oaky dry, with sweet maltyness, faint cherry, slight booze heat, woody hops that really brings puckery bitterness

MF: Chewy, fairly lively carbonation, good balance, sticky, some booze warmth

An interesting DIPA with an English slant, but no game changer. Would've love to try this about 3-4 months fresher

11.2 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap acquired at Wally's Wine in Westwood, California, and served into an EKU 28 snifter in low altitude Los Angeles, California. I purchased three of these bottles; one to try now/fresh, one to try aged, and one to try aged as part of a so-called "black and tan" (though please never go about using that term in the auld country). Reviewed live.

Best before date: 2015. No bottled on date.

I loved the Evil Twin Yin when I had it on draught in Rome, so my expectations are very high for this beer even though it's in a style that I find is often brewed without regard for balance.

Not paired with food. Served refrigerator cold and allowed to warm during consumption.

A: Pours a half finger head of fair cream, good thickness, and bad retention - though the high ABV makes this excusable, particularly out of a snifter. Colour is a nontransparent (but not opaque) caramel-amber. Looks a bit like a quad actually; that's unexpected. Very appealing for the style. Not the usual bright yellow fare.

Sm: Quite hoppy, but not overly so. The bitterness doesn't come through anywhere near as much as the floral quality does. Chestnut. Amber hops. Fruit esters (mostly bright, but some dark). Maybe cherrywood. Raspberry and cherry. Some cream. A very pleasant, inviting, live aroma. I think this is going to be something special. Mild to moderate in strength.

T: Nowhere near as much hop character as expected, through it is present from the midpoint through the finish, and particularly on the climax. The chestnut and berry esters come through quite a bit, complemented by cream and perhaps cherrywood. Structurally quite imbalanced, with the bulk of the flavour after the 1st act (and much of it delayed until beyond the midpoint). The open is quite empty, with maybe a very light hint of vinegar. The open is also quite brief, and zips by straight to the second act. The effect is bit jarring. I like it, but it doesn't fulfill the promise of the aroma. Built quite strangely for the style, but nicely nonetheless. No real layering.

Mf: Smooth and wet, suiting the flavours generally. It's a bit too wet and slick, allowing the flavours to slide down too quickly. I want more of a chance to enjoy them. Too thin. More coarseness would be ideal. A bit undercarbonated actually - which doesn't bode well for aging. Maybe I'll handwax it.

Dr: Very drinkable for the style. Nowhere near as hoppy as you might expect - especially for an IPA that can purportedly age well for three years. It pales in comparison to the yin; I'd like to try the black and tan however. I'd definitely try this on draught; I imagine it'd be best that way. My expectations weren't met, but it's still an enjoyable little brew. Fans of the style should definitely give this one a go. The alcohol is extraordinarily well hidden; I'd say it's 6.5-7.0% tops in terms of feel.

She drank just grand out of me snifter. I'd say a snifter or tumbler is probably ideal for this beer. I wouldn't go with an oversized wine glass. A tulip would do in a pinch just grand like.

Good head from the bar pour (into a tulip glass). Great ring lace that leaves a blanket in many areas. Cloudy liquid with a dark amber/light brown color (light passes through easily).

Very well-balanced for the style. The use of crystal malt is evident in the nose. While the hop is certainly present, it does not dominate.

Quite sweet but still holds true to its IPA roots. It is not sugary; it's just that the malt really stands out. The bitterness comes through late--well after the swallow. The aftertaste certainly demonstrates the hop presence, lasting a very long time. In a word: Complex. The body and carbonation are true to what one would expect.

This could easily be one of my "desert island" beers.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 12/13/2013. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep orange copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, caramel, biscuit, light toffee, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of juicy citrus hops and nearly balanced malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, pineapple, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, caramel, biscuit, light toffee, and floral/grassy earthiness. Sizable pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, pineapple, citrus rind, pine resin, caramel, biscuit, light toffee, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity of juicy citrus/pine hops with moderate malt sweetness; with a very crisp malt/bitterness balance and some lightly cloying pine resin bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a lightly slick, crisp, and very sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice DIPA. All around good complexity of citrus/pine hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

A: Pours a crystal clear golden amber with minimal head - though the little head present is made up of very large bubbles and just off white. There is no visible carbonation in the beer.

S: Aromas of caramel malts and citrus hops, not as bold of a nose as I might have liked but quite pleasant.

T: Flavors of malty sweetness, caramel, grapefruit, slight amounts of alcohol, and a moderate bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with average amounts of carbonation and some crispness.

O: Not the easiest DIPA to drink, the beer tastes real strong.

Note: I did mix a black and tan with about the last third of the bottle, combining it with the Evil Twin Yin as recommended by the brewers. Once combined, the black and tan is very well balanced and better than either beer on it's own.

Thanks to BA smoked for hooking me up with the yin and yang pair of bottles. Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle into a tulip the brew appears a hazed copper color as it rests in my glass. When held to the light, it looks more deep orange with yellow and almost green hints around the edges. A finger of silky yellowish stained tan cap rests atop and as it fades leaves spotty and finger-like lacing effect.

The aromatics are pretty solid here with a big dank hop aspect. Very weedy and herbal that mixes to rinds and a bit of a floral touch. The more I smell this, the more sweet it gets with almost a candy-like accent upfront and caramel or toasty toffee grain is an afterthought. The alcohol isn't hiding when you take a deep whiff, it comes forward with almost a sting like perfume sprayed in the face.

Taking small sips reveals just what I expected. This DIPA has quite a bit of residual sugar hanging around. The first couple of sips are sweet and candy-like with a fruity to floral hop flavoring. As the palate becomes tuned in, the hop flavors mutate to more dank and herbal. Just like the nose indicated, the alcohol creeps in with a solvent burn across the back that drags all of the brighter fruity and floral hop characteristics into a realm of herbal and pitty to rindy bitter elements.

This is a medium to fuller bodied brew with a moderate amount of carbonation. I can't really speak for the freshness of this but it seems like it might have lost the edge that it would of had when it was fresh. Overall, not a bad offering but I could do without the sticky residual sweetness that at times is a bit too much.

On Tap at Kraftworks.

Evil Twin Yang pours a fairly amberish/orange with a small amount of haze to it, though that could of been the line. A small dense stryofoam white cap on top leaving small notches. Smell is way on the toasted malty side with some pine backing and a whiff of alcohol. Some bready essense with a bunch of warming. Taste is not to my liking. The citrus is there with just grapefruit along with some pine. The yeast is probably effing this one up. Some bready malt towards the end. I get some imperial ESB out of this. Feel is a steady medium with ample carb and a small crisp bite towards the end.

Had a bottle at Queens' Kickshaw for $14. I had the Ying stout a couple weeks back, but I think this is my favorite of the two beers. There was a massive fruity pineapple and citrus punch aroma that reminded me of DFH 90 Minute. The flavor picks up the same big citrus, but with healthy backing a subtle caramel malt. I appreciate that the malt and sweetness doesn't diminish the hops, like many 10%+ DIPAs. However, for $14 there are plenty of less expensive options for hop lovers. This was a great beer, but not groudbreaking.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass.

A real nice creamy off caramel yellow colored head sits with a really nice cloudy amber orange. Quite nice looking.

Nose is juicy orange citrus, airy apricot, sense of fresh squeezed orange juice. Real nice.

Taste on the palate is really bringing the nose notes nicely. Orange juicy hop, mellow bitterness on the finish. A real nice caramel creamy malty action in the mid palate. Body is big and bold but not an alcohol bomb or syrupy sweet.

Overall really also in control and enjoyable. A great controlled and sweet density between juicy hop citrus and malt sugar rush. Really liked this one.

Served alongside the Yin, and with the two combined.

Pours a brilliantly clear and deep amber-orange colour, with a phenomenally thick and frothy yellow-white head. Lacing is sticking and clumping. Body is extremely thick, and forms in gorgeous reverse-cascades through the head when poured. It's a heavy and brutal beer, there's no denying that. Looks great.

Nose is fresh and gorgeously hoppy, with big and aromatic citric characters, with a freshness I associate with Citra or New Zealand varieties. The malt is actually well hidden, but with the pure power of the hops, I'm sure it will be there to cushion and balance it enough on the palate. Wonderful.

Yeah, the palate is also big, and it has a green, clipped freshness, especially on the back that speaks to some of the new hop varieties. It also, however, has a rather hot character to it, and the bitterness is pronounced. It's as though the malt went a bit further towards dryness than was intended, and now we have extra alcohol and not quite enough balance.

It's a very nice double IPA, and to be fair, the additional heat and bitterness really does delineate it as a double. I really do like it a lot, and I almost feel like I'm being harsh on it, by not calling it spectacular.

On tap at Max's.

The yang pours a solid amber color with fairly good head retention and lacing. The nose is disturbing and shows very little hop character. This beer smells very sweet/malty and boozy, with a hint of underlying citrus. The flavor profile confirms my suspicions; this is a very sweet and boozy DIPA. There's something of a sweet caramel and candy corn flavor to this beer, which completely dominates what little hoppy bitterness I get in the finish. This beer is hot, heavy and very sweet, and frankly is nothing like what I want in a DIPA. It sort of reminds me of Founders Devil Dancer, and I'm guessing that fans of that beer would like this as well. As I don't care for that beer either, I guess it's no surprise I didn't like this stuff. Thank God I only ordered a sample size of this beer (which neither my buddy or I could finish off).
