Evil Twin Celebrates Xmas All Year Long

21 Aug

The strong smells of lemons and fresh cut oranges take over your nose as you raise your glass of Evil Twin’s Imperial IPA called Before, During & After Christmas – an homage to holiday beers but this one is meant to be enjoyed all year long.

It pours a lovely hazy orange with a fair amount of yeast floating at the bottom. Immediately you know you’re about to enjoy a DIPA, as the bitter smells and taste of hops hit you right away – lots of pine and citrus to coat your tongue here. While the hops are forward, there are small hints of malt that make this Imperial balanced, a true sign of a great beer. We also loved that it went against the traditional DIPA style, having less carbonation and was on the light side. It worked well from first to last sip.
