Evil Twin Brewing, "Molotov Lite" Double IPA

Danish native Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergso is the zany gypsy brewer/founder of the cult that is Evil Twin Brewing. Relocated to Brooklyn with his family since 2006 perhaps to escape the notoriety of his famous twin brother Mikkel (of Mikkeler fame) - sibling rivals with competing rock star egos, Molotov Lite is brewed at Two Roads Brewing in CT. Don't be fooled by the whimsical prose on the can, there's nothing Lite or remotely macro about this beer! This is a 8.5% ABV double IPA that packs a punch - pours a dull yellow with a tight white collar, the smell of citrus assails the nose as the taste reveals a biting burst of pungent, bracing, heartburn inducing grapefruity hops. Finally a Evil Twin brew with an affordable price tag at around $10.99 for a 4pk tall boy cans.
