Evil Twin IPA

Heretic Brewing (Fairfield, CA)
"Red IPA. This blood-red ale may not be what you expect from a malty and hoppy craft beer. Evil Twin has a rich malt character, without being overly sweet. It has a huge hop character, without being overly bitter. It is a great example of a bold, rich, balanced craft beer, without being heavy and hard to drink in quantity."

Pours a beautiful amber with a thick foamy head.
Lots of hops and faintly sweet on the nose.
Toasted sweet malts on the tongue. The hops move to the back and are more subtle than anticipated. A clean sweet finish with just a vague chocolate hint. Excellent!

6.8% ABV, 45 IBU
