look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Pours a pale yellow. Good head/lacing.

Smell is creamy- creme brulee, melons. Honey, honeydew, toffee apple. Quite a bit of ethanol which is disappointing for a beer of only 7% ABV. Little bit of plastic.

Taste is more melons- quite strong, chemical bitterness, iso-hop-py.

Mouthfeel simply has too much chemical bitterness.

Not a good beer. Limited hop aromatics, too much ethanol, too much raw unpleasant hopping on the palate.

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 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.
