Im a total hop head and this beer is one of the best DIPA's i have had the chance to try. Pours a deep golden color with al alright head. Smell is very centered around pine with some nice malt sweetness on the nose. Very nice caramel flavor and it probably wins as best caramel flavor in a beer i have ever had. I will be returning for this beer for sure if i can get my hands on it.

Pours with a small head and some fine lacing. Has a hazy appearance and big citrus hops on the nose. The taste is orange-like with a lingering dry finish. The malts are not lost here but this is a hophead beer that wins.

12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a hazy copper color with a half finger head and some lacing.

S: Citrus hops along with some sweet bready malts to balance it out. A hint of alcohol.

T: Very much like the nose with some caramel flavors as well. Hides the alcohol well.

M: Medium to heavy bodied with good carbonation. Smooth!

O: I enjoyed this beer quite a bit. It's my first Evil Twin brew, and I'm definitely satisfied. It almost tastes like an Oak Aged Double IPA. Nice balance and flavor.

Poured from a bottle dated "302-15", dark gold with a white foamy head, smell was really dank right from the pour suggesting something unique, but settled down just as the taste reflects. Some malt, citrus, and quite a bit of hoppy resin to finish the gulp, leaving a dark sour tone on the back of the tongue. Nice! Actually turned out to be quite a nice change of pace and nicely represented a well thought out balance between the different attributes. A genuinely good, strong, drinkable beer.

2 oz pour into tasting glass. The rest made it into the suggested "black and tan."

A: Pours a brilliant translucent copper with bright apricot highlights. 1-finger head settles quickly and leaves a bit of creamy lacing.

S: Tons of melon, grapefruit, honey and citrus. A small amount of mint comes through in the tail. Whatever the hop bill on this is, it's beautiful.

T: Lush melon up front, followed by citrus and strawberry. Honey and an extremely bitter hop flavor dominate the middle and end of this. Very sweet, as well.

M: Mild carbonation, yet very thick and resinous.

O: On its own, I liked this a bit better than the "Yin," although the blended combo is fantastic.

A solid standalone IPA, but blend em' up!
