3.19/5  rDev -17.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours a cloudy golden yellow into my DFH glass. A thick and fluffy three finger head floats like a cloud atop this honeyed nectar. The foam gently fades and leaves a nice bit of lacing dripping all over the glass.
Yellow grapefruit, bitter orange pith, lemon peel with a slight sugar sweetness as it warms. Not very complex in the nose. Citrus, citrus and more bitter citrus and pine. Little notes of wet hay as it comes to temp.
Grapefruit juice, lemon zest, pine needles, crumbley biscuits, and orange pith. Has a touch of sweetness and graininess that blends well with the intense pine and citrus punch. Nothing breaking any new ground here. A decent drinking IPA.
The citrus strips your mouth pretty good. Lots of Florida citrus, New England pine, and just a touch of sweet grain. It drinks O.K., but I tend to expect more from Evil Twin.
Not something I'll be seeking out often as I can get much better IPA's for the same price or cheaper. Decent at best. No complexity, just bitter citrus. Average at best especially for $10.99/4-pack.

3.59/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

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

A-a hazy golden color with a fingers worth of white head that leaves a thin layer of lace on top

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.
