On draught at Zeitgeist, Evil Twin is a dark, brownish amber, with a small off-white head leaving scatteded lace.
Smell is hoppy, pine forest. Spicy, flirting towards ginerbread.
Taste is malty, a little caramel, and agressively hoppy, loads of pine. I love the fierceness, and trhe cleanliness of execution.
Mouthfeel is oily and dry, medium bodied.
Drinkability is good. My kind of amber. Enough *cleanly executed* malt to provide texture, and lots of hops to bring it home.
Serving type: on-tap

Appearance-poured from a bottle into a brandy glass, dark ruby read sparkling with a half a finger of white head that dissipated rather quickly.
Aroma- sweet traces of maple syrup and jolly rancher fruit candy. With an all too familiar tropical hop aroma. I smell this in a lot of beers I like. Slight traces of chocolate or carob.
taste- wow rather smooth i would say that this beer is the closest i have ever tasted to a cherry tootsie pop. honestly its not sticky sweet but has almost a cordial type taste to it. the hops take on a medicinal ( but not unpleasant note think jagermeister)). I know this description wouldn't sell it for me but it is a very good tasting beer.
Mouthfeel- medium to dry, it could be a very fast drinking beer because i perceive a slightly lower level of carbonation. There is a slight alcohol warmth as well.
Overall- it s a very unique beer, I think calling it a west coast red under sells it. This beer taste like it has some depth or age to it. The on the bottle description is more accurate " its malty with out being too sweet and hoppy without being too bitter" paraphrased. I would gladly grab another! I would pair it with a pork tenderloin that had some sort of fruit compote garnish, thanksgiving turkey ( as a sub for cranberries), or after getting a flat top in the old barbershop (that's when i would always have a tootsie pop)
