Evil Twin Brewing Hipster Ale

Evil Twin Brewing has its origins in Denmark, but its beers are actually brewed at ten different breweries around the world. This 5.5% ABV was produced and canned by Westbrook Brewing Co., Mount Pleasant, South Carolina

The beer pours a slightly hazy, light orange copper in color. There is a short, thin, off-white head that leaves thin, but sticky lacing on the glass. The aroma is hop forward, orange, melons and pine. There is some malt and the astringency of tea. The taste is tea with lemon, light and soft pine, and orange. It is bitingly bitter. It drinks smooth, with a light and tingling carbonation. The aftertaste is a potent and astringent bitterness. This pale ale is “stronger” than many IPA’s. It is very tasty, but it is not for the faint of heart, hop heads only need apply.
