3.59/5 rDev -7.2%
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.
