Very odd ipa, don't know what to think of this one.
Rare taste at the back end too.

Poured into IPA glass. It pours a clear orange-amber with a one-finger milk-white head and lacing. It has a nice dank smell with an aroma of tangerine, pine, and hops. You can really taste the tangerine/orange peel. It begins quite sweet and fruity but ends with a lot of hoppy bitterness. It's a really nice balance of sweet and bitter. It's a medium-bodied ale with moderate carbonation and it hides its 10% ABV quite well. Overall, it's a well-crafted and enjoyable IPA. Like Yin, it's not as good as some of its famous competitors but it is solid and worth trying.

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.

This double IPA falls with the tangerine citrus end of the spectrum, with a kind of black tea, biscuit thing going on. It reminds me a bit too much of an amber ale in flavor profile so I'm not likely to want more than a serving of it. The booze comes across a bit strong in the bitterness, as if I had a shot of vodka not too long ago. I was hoping I'd like this more. I certainly like the concepts, marketing and the design of the brewery.

Nice smell of orange peel but the taste is too bitter for me. Aftertaste is also very bitter and it stays for quite some time. This level of IBU is not my type.

Hazy dark amber color with beige head. Aroma is malty with some dank hops. Taste is malty and sweet at first but gets dank and bitter towards the finish. Long, bitter aftertaste. Alcohol is quite present. Not bad but definitely not my style of IPA.

My rating is low because this beer is 225 days old. It is not Evil Twin's fault but I am rating the beer I am drinking. This is horrible malt bomb with very off flavors. Evil Twin makes good stuff I will update when I get a fresh bottle. Have a great day my friends.

Normal look to an imperial with good head. Carmel malty piney smell. Very floral hoppy malty well balanced. Medium body with a well carbonation. Fantastic beer!
