Growler from Glenville Beverage in Scocia NY, poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass. Liquid portion comes out lighter than I expected. Straw yellow colored with excellent clarity because it's so light. Nice big head, almost soapy but more smaller bubbles than anything else, really good lacing though. If the head wasn't so nice It would almost look like a BMC regular line up product. Overall a pretty good looking beer.
Smell is really good, nice strong citrus hoppy IPA. Grapefruit, lemon zest/peel, and not quite ripe tangerine citrus aromas. In addition to the citrus there is a slight bready/yeast smell that's a little light and sweet. Smells good and tickles your nose quite nicely.
Taste is on par with the smell. Maybe a little bit sweeter from the caramel malt, a weak toasty flavor from the malted barley. The hoppy part is the best part and fortunately it's hoppy. Penty of the above citrus flavors with maybe the addition of some sappy pine.
Mouthfeel is good, it's very light considering the full amount of flavor, and yet complex. Starts light and smooth but if you let it warm up it actually gets a little buttery. Really good carbonation level and super drinkable. Another solid brew from Evil Twin.
My wife and I found out we'll actually be having twins, so if one of them tends to act up in the future, I guess his/her nickname will have to be Falco.

Bottled on 2/12/14: Pours hazy yellow gold color with a ton of chunks swirling around in the beer that lead up to a 2 finger foamy snow white head that was full of small bubbles and faded slowly leaving really good foamy lacing and rings as it went down and a layer on top. For a 12 oz bottle, this sure had a ton of yeast for an IPA.
Smells of orange peel, lemon zest, piney hops, grapefruit, malt, citrus hops, toasted grains, and faint spices. After the citrus fruit and citrus hop notes subside there are whiffs of biscuit, caramel and perfume or potpourri that resemble spices.
Tastes of bitter grapefruit pith, lemon, orange peel, citrus hops, piney hops, toasted grains, coriander, biscuit, spices like pepper or very dry tea, light caramel, dry grass and earthy notes. Almost seems dry hopped or like a dry leaf was used to stir the brew as the hops burst gives way to dry grainy flavors that seem more like a dry cracker or yeast.
Mouthfeel is average to smooth, with average carbonation, a medium almost chewy body and a very bitter grapefruit-like finish that is near dry and leaves grainy biscuit traces.
Overall it was a good IPA, and a little different from your standard IPA flavor since the grainy flavor and bitterness were amped up, but a little bit of a let-down since my expectations for all Evil Twin beers is that they will be great.

S-pale malts, citrus, grapefruit, light fruity sweetness
T-pale bready backbone with citrus and grapefruit and a bitter finish with each sip
M-medium body, moderate carbonation, bitter finish
Overall a very decent IPA, easy to drink, but nothing extraordinary

Picked up a growler of this last weekend. Good, but maybe not their best. Color was a yellow-ish copper. Some head, but not a ton of carbonation, easy mouthfeel for an IPA. The taste was pretty mild for an IPA. Some hops and slight citrus flavor, again, not strong. Floral aroma. All in all a slightly above average IPA, just not super flavorful.
