Evil Twin Hipster Ale has a fairly thick, soapy, off-white head, a very cloudy, brilliant orange appearance, with lots of suspended brown chunks and a think lacing sheen left behind. The aroma is of piney and citrus hops and sugar. Taste is all bitter, piney hops, grapefruit juice, pine oil, sugar, and sweet white bread. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Evil Twin Hipster Ale finishes dry, fairly refreshing, and quite drinkable. Overall, this is a wonderful beer, and I rate it most excellent. It is one that you should not miss trying.

A: Golden, slight copper

S: Beautiful, citrusy, pasionfruity awesome smell

T: Same in the flavour, big citrusy hops almost get some apricot as well

M: On the thinner side but for an APA it is quite pleasing

O: Really don't see why this is rated so low, such a great drop on tap. Never had it out of a can so might have to do a comparison, but on-tap it's a cracker imo.

Can into tulip.

Super hazy orange pour with a half finger, tight bubbled, snow white head. Lacing is quite good.

Smells of super juicy oranges, light mango and grapefruit with some lime zest and some sweet candy sugar. Very little in the way of pine or wet grass. Very bright and juicy.

Grapefruit and orange peel in the taste in the middle of the tongue. There is some bitter pine but not much. Dry bitter finish.

Light body, medium the high carbonation.

This is something I wasn't expecting. I bought it as a joke between my Fiancee and I and I am thoroughly impressed, the smell alone on this beer is worth the cost. Will definitely seek out again.

Apparently Evil Twin has been brewing Hipster Ales neighborhoods around the world they deem hipster enough. Some of them are different than the original – Sønderho, Denmark’s Sønderho Hipster Ale was dry-hopped and barrel-aged, for instance – so I’m not sure if this generic variant is different. I’m guessing they just slap on the “[City Name] Hipster Ale” label for some of their releases in certain areas, but just to be sure, here’s Evil Twin’s canned, geographically-indistinct Hipster Ale. Cheers!

A: Pours soft, a pillowy head of pure white stretching out over the body like foamed milk. Lacing sticks to the glass in sheets. Slightly hazy golden body.

S: Mild saison-like nose: phenolic, doughy yeast, black pepper hops, and a hint of wildflower. Twirl it a bit and dough comes to the forefront, laced with Band-Aid, chalk, and white wine notes. Interesting.

T&M: Laying flat over the tongue with noticeable heft and a dense, frothy carbonation, the body fills out with flavors similar to the nose: a creamy, doughy bread character, biscuit, flint, slightly medicinal yeast, buttered roll. If I were brewing a pale ale, this is the base I’d want; it’s satisfying all on its own. Crisp hops soon after, sprinkling in grapefruit and lemon rind flavors before coming to a peppery snap of a conclusion. That’s the aftertaste, a dry crispness with a spiciness that sits on the tongue for quite some time.

O: This is everything I want from a pale ale: a malt and yeast backbone with great flavor (i.e., a grain bill that’s not just a bed of residual sugar and body to balance the hops and yeast that has anything but a neutral taste) and an interesting hop character that adds a spice that’s both flavorful and drinkable. I didn’t see how much a six-pack was, but if it’s less than $11, I’ll be buying this until it runs out. I love this beer.

A clean golden amber in color with 2 fingers of bright white head, excellent lacing and slow dissipation. Smells citrusy, grapefruit, caramel and bready. Flavor is fresh as hell.. Tastes like you're sucking on a hoppy bread .. Crisp mouthfeel with higher carbonation and a refreshing lighter medium body. Overall this is a wonderful pale ale.. Wish we got it here in nj, I'd make this a summer staple.
