It was a cold and foggy late morning on Cannon Beach when I arrived at Bill's Tavern. No tourists were about. Sure, they'd be in later, but it was early.

The Evil Twin was delivered to me at the bar with a frothy off-white head atop a clear deep amber/copper body. The head retention was surprisingly good, and it left some very nice lacing with each sip I took. Not too unlike the cold and windy rain-soaked morning outside the door, it was a fairly bitter brew. But there was warmth inside, and the Evil Twin also offered a soft belly of darkly caramelish malt. Grassy and minty - not citrusy - hops adorned it.

Perfectly balanced. Nicely rounded. Dry finish. Pretty much a perfect English style India Pale Ale. I enjoyed it with a cup of chowder and some grilled oysters, and by the time I was ready for another pint the sun had broken through the mist...

...and the tourist had arrived. (896 characters)

on-tap @ Bill's Tavern
tulip pint

Clear, amber brown with a foamy off white head,

Mild piney, herbal, grassy hops fairly evenly balanced with a solid caramel malt base. Pretty similar in both the aroma and taste.

Medium body. Foamy, scrubbing carbonation.

A decent English-style IPA. Nothing particularly exciting, but certainly nothing unpleasant either. (359 characters)

On draught at Bill's, Evil Twin is dark chestnut brown, lightly hazed. Thin white head quickly settles to big-bubbled skim, leaving light but sticky, foamy lace.

Smell is mild, malty, sugary caramel.

Taste is also lots of malty caramel. I didn't know this was a DIPA when I ordered it, oh well. A little sharp at first, the hops come though the caramel once my palate shifts, especially on the bitterness. Hop flavor is a little piny, resinous, but certainly not the star. A little sweet ethanol, with the iced tea crystal, like a spiked tea.

Mouthfeel is slippery, medium bodied.

Drinkability is pretty good for the style. The body is lighter than I expected, and it's fairly smooth. (689 characters)

16oz pint glass
Enjoyed at the brew pub on 9/3/12

A: Cloudy hazy orange amber, off white head, sticky lacing.

S: Smells of soapy, piney hop aromas. Some bready malts too. Nothing too exciting.

T: The taste matches smell. Some bitter pine notes, but nothing overly aggressive. It's a middle of the road balanced IPA. Not an overly bitter finish.

M: It's easy drinking. A medium bodied brew. (393 characters)
