A - Pours a hazy deep amber with a two-finger foamy white head. Light sticky lacing.

S - Aromas of orange peel, grapefruit, caramel malts, and piney hops.

T - Starts sweet with a strong amount of caramel malts and citrus. The piney hops come in mid-palate bring a strong lasting bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a dry finish.

O - A nice DIPA. The finish is a touch to bitter for me, but still enjoyable.

Decanted to a beer glass. A gorgeous clear orange-copper color with a one-finger off-white head that dissipates quickly leaving minimal lacing. Very little hop aroma. The taste is overwhelming bitter citrus peel with a small amount of sweet malt returning on the finish. Under-ripe grapefruit dominates. The bitterness dissipates a little as the beer warms. Paired with a sweet food, it improved dramatically.

Evil Twin inexplicably showed up in the Twin Cities recently so hey! Let's try some. 12 oz. bottle with a smudged bottle date sometime in March 2014.

Pour is typical orange, hazed & confused, low level of carbonation. Nose isn't terribly appealing: orange juice that's had an extra three cups of sugar thrown in my a three-year old. No hint of hops.

Yang is a bitter orange to swallow. There seems to be a duality of tastes here: bitter hops & bitter oranges. Big taste of oranges infused with caramel is quickly overwhelmed by a harsh, scattershot bitterness, enough that it's clearing my allergy-ridden sinuses & scrubbing my papillae rather painfully. Light wildflower honey tries to balance the hops but fails. Drinkability? Now splitting with my wife, who seems to like it more than I do. Six ounces will be plenty, thanks.

Not impressed. Not bad, but completely out of whack. Too many aspirin-hops. Not a very good beer.

Visually this beer is ideal .. nice amber color and rich foamy head. Constant bubbles like champagne. Aroma is very sweet and boozy, bready. Deep pine and floweriness on the tongue, bitterness developing the more you sip. Beer is creamy and sticks to your mouth.. Overall a very solid IPA that hides it's 10% extremely well..the florals are not overbearing but showcase what is hoped for when drinking a beer of this style.
