Molotov LiteMolotov Lite
Notes: Back in the days, only uncomplicated and tasteless beers excited and people started feeling bored before happy hour was up. Molotov Lite is a understated tour de force in rebellious hoppiness, it’s a subtle spark for action and yet by far one of the most anti-authoritative beers ever made by Evil Twin Brewing.

-Batch 034.

A: A soapy and washy dull ivory head is patchy and thin atop a dark, opaque orange colored body. Tons of macro-bubbly carbonation within with slight sticky treads of lace.

S: Lemon and lime, reminds me of a mexican lager. Some outliners of cantaloupe, pretty decent strength level. Solid good with some dank oranges coming on the finish.

T: Flavor was tart, of musky oranges, and lemons. Dry musky cobwebs adds a yeasty flair with some bitter stale hops on the finish. Has a good deal of alcohol awareness on the swallow, solvent like. Caramel orange specialty grains provide the backbone.

M: Crackly carbonation, good chewy base malts. Speciality grains provide the back bone with a compliment of dry powdery stale hops coating on the tongue.

O: Overall not sure of date, but the finish of solvent like alcohol maybe was intended due to name, but was a bit much regardless. Im guessing they called it a Moltov for good reason. Does relax a bit deeper into the drink but is not session-able material but any means.

Looks good, smells okay with some hops coming through, but tastes terrible. I appreciate the alcohol content but I was struggling to finish this one. Just not for me.

Not much to look at or smell, really. But the write up on the can will send you in the proper direction. The flavor is Alcohol forward, bitter and malty. Elevated street drinking. Bonus points for that.... Cheers!

Pours from a pint can on the clear side of translucent with a thick but coarse head that quickly dissipates. The bouquet is thin, conveying a general, unremarkable hoppiness. The beer is severely bitter, with no fruit references. Lingering, rather pronounced aftertaste of hoppish bitterness. Smooth texture. An interesting exercise in one-note hopicity.

Light gold color. Thin head. Unimaginative. Hops and alcohol is all i taste. Atleast the 8% might make me forget how boring it is.

Molotov lite is an interesting brew. Look is First sip, I think it's overly bready and malty, yet the finish has a big hop punch. There is also a sweetness throughout. I'm wondering if corn is used? Either way, unique and it is memorable at a time when IPAs are a dime a dozen. I would drink this again. Alcohol is undetectable, extremely drinkable and overall a solid offering from Evil Twin.

Golden hazy, white frothy foam. Particles of hops. Fruity nose, mostly tropical fruits like pineapple and mango. High bitter taste, very high hoppy flavor. Big portion of a fruity sweetness. Medium body. Very juicy. Bitter, long lasting finish. Some peppery spiciness.
Tasty beer. Too much cloying sweetness. It was a nice experience, but I would not buy it again.

Poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a semi-golden burnt orange to copper color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. Some messy lace.
The aroma had some citrusy to piney sweet and bitter character rolling over some blueberries, blackberries and grassy hop notes.
The flavor was mainly sweet through the citrus and berries and a slight bitterness came in nice and balanced. Moderate aftertaste of citrus, pine and berries.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Touch of astringency, but not overbearing. Crisp citrus to berry-like finish.
Overall, pretty nice DIPA that I would have again.
