Evil Twin Brewing Molotov Cocktail

What the brewers say

“Did you like Before During and after Christmas? Maybe you thought it poured brilliantly, the alcohol was admirably well hidden, and you loved how the arrogant amounts of hops numbed your mouth? This beer will knock your tongue off—it’s a tour de force in hoppiness and by far one the craziest beer ever made by Evil Twin Brewing.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Pine and lemon and orange citrus with notes of grapefruit followed by caramel and honey malt sweetness. This has a pretty unique aroma.”

Flavor: “Strong notes of pine, orange peel, and citrus followed by a pronounced caramel malt sweetness. Hops are more an undertone of the sweetness. Finishes dry but has a lingering sweet taste. It has that maltiness that overpowers the hops and is closer to a barleywine than an IPA.”

Overall: “Unique and original—it’s an out-there IPA, and a unique take on the style. Nice complex hops profile that needs to be dialed up to match malt sweetness.”
