My rating: 3

Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 11th August 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A very hazy dark orange colour with a one finger white head that had pretty good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Juicy orange peel, grapefruit juice, mango, pineapple and cantaloupe.
Taste: Starts off nice with a good mix of citrus pith and tropical fruits, but the finish was quite boozy and overpowered all that nice juiciness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: The nice juiciness in the aroma and taste is there, but unfortunately the finish had a boozy feel that took over from all the nice juice.

Evil Twin x Omnipollo Old Fashioned Lemonade IPA

Brewery: Evil Twin Brewing x Omnipollo
Country: USA
ABV: 7%
Style: American IPA
Other Notes: India Pale Ale with lemon added. Brewed for Evil Twin Brewing by Dorchester Brewing Company

Brewer Description: (from can) A refreshing drink often associated with childhood nostalgia to others a pop-cultural symbol of emancipation. Whatever the association we teamed up with good old Swedes, Henok and Karl of the fashionable Omnipollo to squeeze out a tasty, tempting and deceivingly well balanced IPA with sweet and sour notes of old fashioned memories. Perhaps you can taste the dishonesty, it’s all over your breath – it’s Lemonade.

Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of 10th January 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy milky dark orange colour with a one finger white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing.
Aroma: Unripe mango, lemon zest, lychee and lemonade.
Taste: Tart, lightly sour, lemonade and candied lime zest.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: This was quite tasty and refreshing, and definitely has the hard lemonade taste but hardly seems like an IPA.

Evil Twin x 7venth Sun Citra Sunshine Slacker

Brewery: Evil Twin Brewing x 7venth Sun Brewery
Country: USA
ABV: 4.5%
Style: American IPA
Other Notes: Brewed at Two Roads Brewing Company.

Brewer Description: (from can) Despite his bitterness, lack of power and insuperable aversion to any kind of extravagant labor – he kind of has a charming charisma, and perhaps he is even loveable. Somehow we find him unbelievably irresistible and stimulating because he is one of the few that masters the ability to effortlessly impress with his sharp intelligence and make it look so damn easy.

Intro: A 1 pint can with a Julian bottled on date of 23915, meaning it was canned on 27th August 2015. It was poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: It poured a clear golden straw colour with a two finger white head with good retention that leaves sticky lacing.
Aroma: Strong tropical fruit aromas with ripe mango, guava, peach and apricot. Light citrus lemon in the background.
Taste: Flavours are not very strong. I get some mango and grapefruit, maybe some lemon. On the finish, the bready malt comes out. Its only lightly bitter.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, light bodied with medium carbonation.
Overall: A nice light juicy beer that is very drinkable. It could do with a bit more bitterness as an IPA, but still good.

Evil Twin Ryan And The Beaster Bunny

Brewery: Evil Twin Brewing
Country: USA
ABV: 7%
Style: Belgian Saison
Other Notes: Brewed by Evil Twin Brewing at Two Roads Brewing Company.

Brewer Description: (from bottle) In Denmark we have a lovely tradition for seasonal beer, and what you have here is certainly no exception. This is a never before seen collaboration between Ryan and the Beaster Bunny. A fluffy and precious Saison originally conceived of on the beautiful island of Fano on the west coast of Denmark. It may sound like a true fairytale, but don’t be fooled by it’s cute appearance.

Intro: A 12 fl oz bottle with a date code of 056:15 meaning that it was bottled on 25th February 2015. It was poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance: It poured a slightly hazy orange colour with a one finger creamy white head that dissipated fairly quickly to thin layer of foam leaving spotty lacing.
Aroma: Belgian yeastiness with honey, coriander, pear, lemon zest and a hint of peppery spice.
Taste: Similar to the aroma, it tastes of Belgian yeast, honey, banana, brown sugar, coriander, pear, sour apple, dry biscuit with a hint of citrus lemon zest and pepper spice.
Mouthfeel: Dry, medium bodied with high lively carbonation.
Overall: This was a solid saison, but usually I prefer more sour and less bitter.

Evil Twin I Love You With My Stout

Brewery: Evil Twin Brewing
Country: USA
ABV: 12%
Style: American Imperial Stout
Other Notes: Brewed at Two Roads Brewing Company, Stratford, CT, USA for Evil Twin

Brewer Description: (from bottle) When I copied the famous Even More Jesus, I had to ask myself as an artist, why am I doing this? I didn’t honestly know. It was just an instinct about beer as pure form… in a sense this stout is like a metaphor for freedom – the sum of all the beauty that surrounds me and my perfect contemporary existence.

My rating: 4
My beeradvocate.com rating: 4.35
My ratebeer.com rating: 4.3

Intro: A 12 fl oz bottle with bottle date code of 287:14 (which assuming the 287th day of 2014 means a bottled date of 14 October 2014).
Appearance: The beer poured jet black into a snifter with a nice one finger tan head with good retention leaving spotty lacing.
Aroma: Smells sweet, dark cherry, vanilla, dark chocolate, raisin and there’s definitely alcohol, but nice smelling alcohol like brandy mixed with chocolate.
Taste: Like the nose, sweet lightly burnt sugar, fruit cake, dark cherry, plum, raisins with some dark chocolate in the background and slight bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with light to medium carbonation, slightly creamy.
Overall: I was pleasantly surprised with this beer. It was a more fruity stout than I expected and although sweet, it wasn’t overly done. The chocolate and dark fruit flavours worked together and even though it was boozy, it worked with this style and taste.
