4.06/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottled on 4/16/13.Poured into a standard pint glass a dull lemon yellow color with just a great looking firm one finger head just doesn't dissapate,not a fan of the color but a big fan of the pillow-like head.Big citrusy hops jump out in the nose along with some pine underneath,not much malt presence except for mild toastiness.If you like grapefruit and bitterness this your kinda ipa,I love it,intesnse grapefruit juice flavors and some stickiness to go along with some lighter pine resin,again just a faint drier malt presence.I haven't had an in your face sharp hop bomb in awhile and for me this fits the bill.Excellent...in my opinion.

Bottled 4/??/14, poured into tulip; foggy-clear light gold in color with a solid white head that descends leaving nice slick lacing.
Smell is a bit weak but is very good and interesting. Pine and citrus, with lesser notes of sweet fruit, like peach and others. An interesting twist on the usual.
Taste follows nose very well. Big wallop of citrus and pine that suddenly then moves into soft, sweet flavors of tangerine and peach as it fades, leaving some bittersweet lingering flavors.
Mouthfeel is medium-light and slick.
Overall, this is a very tasty IPA with a unique flavor. Definitely one of the better light-colored Evil Twin beers I've had so far.
