Notes / Commercial Description:
What makes a great leader? First of all a perfectly balanced blend of qualities; the ability to stand out - be authoritative without overpowering. Show courage and endurance - you will lead the way and set standards. Very important; be appealing and refreshing to the people. This stereotypical portrait applies whether referring to politics, religion or maybe even this outstanding IPA.

What is it with the bright white head in all Evil Twin’s beer? You guessed it, this one too. Color is golden. Nose seems like a lager, a lighter one. Taste is tropicalvand bready. The after taste is where the magic happens. Lots of back bite that carries this beer.

On tap at District Tap House. Pours orange with fluffy white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready malt and tropical fruit. Body is medium and tangy. Herbal hops dominate the palate with bready malt and tropical fruit provide support. Finish is long and dry. Great brew.

June 2018...pours clear bright gold with heavy ring of white foam around the edge. Citrus soapy nose. Bright lemon rind flavor, heavy bitter. Almost minty. Quite bitter.

Like brewer.
a) Hazed light golden supporting thin head that lasts and laces only a little.
s) Aromas of citrus hops spread lightly over cracker, biscuit malts. Fruits are grapefruit, orange, and lemon.
t) Follows smell, but grows bigger, more bitter, with a long pungent, astringent finish. Puckery.
f) Light-moderate weight, nice crisp, clean dry finish.
o) Easy to drink. Alcohol well hidden. Also ran.

One of the least memorable of the Evil Twin beers I've had, but still pretty good. More East Coast. IPA style, played down hops, finish is the best part.

Bought a can at the Beer Shop in East Longmeadow, MA. The beer pours with a very clear, dark yellow appearance with little to no head. Really nice aromas of tangerine, orange, lemon citrus smells. The taste is decent with a flavoring that follows the nose within good parameters: not too strong or weak. Could taste the tangerine the most. Medium body and slightly refreshing. Overall, not bad at all, especially with its aromas.

Batch 042

pours a slightly hazy gold color with a thin head, looks good though

smell is sweet and mild

bitterness hits me early, finishes somewhat earthy. finish does have some malt to it but still a pretty bitter beer which is nice, and unexpected.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a stiff golden yellow color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. Not much lace, somewhat stringy.
The aroma had some muted citrusy hops, somewhat sweet with a firm bittering strength flowing over a strong bready/biscuit maltiness.
The flavor was moderately sweet with a strong bitterness but staying at a separate pace from showing any evidence of trying to fully meld so I could say "bittersweet." Because it's not. Aftertaste had a stiff maltiness subjugating any hoppy bitterness.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation felt on par. ABV felt as projected. Finish was malty with some bitterness but never fully blended.
Overall, in a world full of IPA's, I honestly do not see a need to come back to this. Wishing Evil Twin would just stick to their huge ass stouts.

One of the best values available, at least in NYC. Visuals hide an excellent tasting beer. Well balanced taste all the way through. A sip and you know.
