This pale ale from a can presents a classic amber color, slightly hazed with a substantial white foam on top and lacing to match. The nose instantly picks up tropical fruit and subdued fresh pine. Very nice while maintaining a pale ale restraint perhaps. The taste offers a unique blend of delicate citrus and pine along with a bit of a mineral grain idea that is very easy drinking while keeping the taste buds easily satisfied. Just a bit grassy but not as astringent as most grassy hops can present. The feel is also very pleasant. Medium bodied with a fairly heavy, creamy feel, without any sort of cloying or thickness. Very much a drinkable brew that I could see fitting any session. The flavor could use just a slight boost in sweetness perhaps, something to give it a little more distinction but as a pale ale, it delivers solid, tasty hop bitterness and is quite a good option for sure.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Served from a 12oz can into a Smutty pint glass.
Appearance- Hazy orange color with a great head retention and lacing.
Smell- Sweet with a weird plastic aroma and mild citrus fruits. Smells like an orangey adjunct lager.
Taste- Cirtus up front, but that plasticy taste is still there, though light. Mild hop presence with some bitterness at the end.
Mouthfeel- Well carbonated and easy to drink. Decent body. Maybe a little too carbonated.
Overall- The aroma kills this beer. It seeps into the taste as well, which is unfortunate, because if that plastic taste wasn't there, it would be a decent beer.

Illegible dating on bottom of can.
A - Pale golden body, hazed, voluminous white head has good retention and lacing.
S/T - Hop forward, mostly herbal, grassy notes, lemon sweetness, pale cracker like malt. Some pine and floral tastes in the finish.
M - Light to medium body, high carbonation, consistency stays smooth, finishes mostly dry with a moderate lingering bitterness.
O - Nice little pale ale. Easily drinkable, crisp, dry, refreshing.

The reasoning behind buying this beer was about 50% comical value and 50% thinking it was going to be good. Rang up for around 3 bucks. Poured into a pint glass.
A&S: Very big head, poured with medium vigor and it overflowed on me, leaving still over two fingers of head semi-foamy off-white head, retains in a nice layer. A network of bubbly lacing is left behind on the glass. Lively translucent orange colored beer. The smell is pretty subdued but includes mostly floral hops and some hints of citrus.
T&M: Even liking a lot of bitter beers, I would say this one is too much. The bitterness not only takes command of the finish, but pretty much is overpowering throughout this brew. Somewhat of a malty backbone but again can't really get past the bitterness. Carbonation is very high and body is medium.
Overall: I thought it was OK. Out of the small sample of evil twin stuff I have consumed, I would say it is by far my least favorite. My gf has a great taste for craft beers and didn't even want to finish hers, so by no means is this a crowd pleaser.
