3.35/5 rDev -7.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
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.

3.84/5 rDev +6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Pours hazy golden, foamy white head that lingers for a while and turns into a thin cap, plus lots of traces.
Smell balanced with biscuity malts and hops, with some low lemon, peach, bit of pine resin, some grass, sweet, fruity and probably bitter.
Lemon, tangerine and grapefruit first in the taste, some peach and apricot, then only herbal notes till the end. Grassy hops mostly, a touch of pine, faint floral notes, very mineral. Malts are pretty low, some straw, very faint biscuits and caramel.
Light bodied, almost watery, medium to low carbonation. Goes down very easy. Aftertaste a bit too green and rough.
Nothing incredible, but nice hops and huge drinkability. I guess one should've tried it before it was cool.
