Share This Review

Bikini Beer is an American-style Session IPA brewed by Evil Twin Brewing at Two Roads Brewing Company. For the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a shaker pint glass from a can.

Appearance

Pours a relatively clear gold with an inch-thick white head that offers modest retention. A smattering of lace clings to the glass.

Aroma

Aroma is barely there but suggests mildly-sweet notes of tropical fruit and honey.

Flavor

The palate, however, showcases a lot of bite. Earthy and herbal hops dominate early; finishes dry and bitter with grapefruit and lemon. There’s little else in between. Malt presence is negligible.

Mouthfeel

Mouthfeel is thin with an ultra-light body but effervescent in feel with its ample carbonation.

Overall

The Bikini Beer is about as sessionable as a beer gets. With a very low ABV of 2.7%, you could rock this beer all day, but with such a limited palate, would you want to? The brew is light and refreshing, but ultimately, forgettable. Unless you’re targeting the lowest ABV possible, know that there are better Session IPAs on the market.
