Style: Red IPA

Tasting Notes: This blood-red ale may not be what you expect from a malty and hoppy craft beverage. 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 beverage, without being heavy and hard to drink in quantity.
