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.

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.

Pours cloudy, shiny golden, with floating bits and a small white head that lingers.
Smells nice, grapefruit, tangerine, peach, papaya, mango, faint floral notes, so pretty decent on the hop side. Add some caramel and biscuity malts, and it might trick you into thinking this is very sweet.
The first seconds after sipping it might also do that. Fruit jam, especially orange and peach, pineapple syrup. Green bitter hops "counterattack", with lots of pine, hop resin, bitter grass, very "dank". Pale malt backbone, a tiny bit biscuity. Aftertaste doesn't suffer from the big bitter flash, that leaves quite some fruitiness along with all the big green notes.
Medium body and carbonation, well hidden alcohol.
Felt like a great by-the-book American IPA, very strong with the hops but also not overpowering, tasty.
