4/5 rDev +1.5%
Yellowish-orange body, hazy and full of sediment. Finger thick, off-white head with decent retention and fantastic lacing.
Rich, sweet caramel malts and molasses. Sweet, tropical and citrus hop notes are present and potent.
Much like the theme from the aroma - it's super sweet. Too sweet. Caramel malts and plenty of citrus. Alcohol on the tail end starts off almost impossible to notice but starts packing some more burn as it warms.
Thick and heavy. Light carbonation. Sweet finish.
Far from the most balanced double I've had, but still enjoyable.

Bottle dated 169:14 which I am interpreting as Julien for 06.18.2014, a touch under 2 months ago. Evil Twin beers (including IPAs) are often encountered in worse shape than this.
A: Slightly cloudy orange, with characteristic carbonation for the style. Swirling shows.... that this is a 13+% brew.
S: Cooked orange, in a nutshell a lot like Grand Marnier. Otherwise I'd say I'm picking up whipped cream, a bit of peach, and truthfully, some cheap hot booze. I love it, and you've been warned.
T: Burnt orange peel, some esters, real boozy
MF: Surprisingly creamy with a pleasant alcohol burn. You won't "chug" this one by accident.
Overall: I like it.

There is such a thing as too much.
This is it.
Evil Twin consistently comes up with failed attempts at drinkable IPA's. The Bikini, The Hipster, and Molotov Cocktail all misfire for different reasons.
Molotov cocktail is essentially so insanely unbalanced and overly sweet as to essentially be a dessert wine or pancake syrup. Either way, it's not the way I want to experience beer.
I want a beer that is bold, flavorful, and smooth. Molotov cocktail brings a hammer down square in the middle of your tongue with a thick, rich wallop of hops and flavors, but it's too thick and too sweet to be legitimately enjoyable.
I would recommend trying this as an after dinner cocktail wine to share with friends while eating ice cream....and maybe to pour over ice cream.

3.8/5 rDev -3.6%
Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: medium orange hue with a light haze and moderate effervescence, as well as a lot of tiny floaties in the body. Head poured a thin layer of ivory foam. Not bad.
Smell: quite sweet with a rather fruity and floral aroma. Interesting, but not overly complex.
Taste: sweet with a bit of a bright citrusy character on top of a heavier malt. Bitterness is moderate and the citrusy ring (especially lemon) continues through the end of the palate. Pretty good, but it's darn sweet; too sweet for the style I'd say.
Mouthfeel: big body with a good carbonation and a really nice creaminess for the style. Great!
Overall: an interesting beer, it's too sweet to be among my favorite DIPAs. The citrusy flavor is quite good, though, aside from its syrupy aspects.
