2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Copper pour thick creamy meringue head. Musty floral aroma. Thick creamy palate. Weird hop profile - summit ans centennial do not combine well. Very floral but the thick cream ale like body. Not a favorite.

Darker orange colored body, medium sized white head, spotty lacing. Mellow citrus and floral hop notes, light crackery malts. Light bodied, lively carbonation, gentle bitterness, thin in places. Ok.

Do not let the name fool you into expecting an IPA as it did me. But that is okay as this is a very good pale ale. Evil Genius has some good stuff!

2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours a clear orange color with a foamy off white head. Aroma of tangerine skins, citrus, and pale malt. Taste of bitter pine, tangerines, rotted citrus, and pale malt.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. Muddy copper pour with a thin off white head. Solid pine and light citrus in the nose. Straight caramel and pine flavor wise with a slightly unbalanced bitterness. Very weak compared to it’s peers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazed amber appearance with an average size, off white head and modest lacing. Caramel malts crowd out the citrus in the aroma. Sharp, bitter, tinny flavor that mellows somewhat in the aftertaste. There is a bit of disparity within the 6pk, from appearance to finish. so the descriptors will vary and are listed as an approximation. Really Jekyll/Hyde-ish.

pours an orangish copper with a minimal white head. This beer is lightly hoppy with a citrus peel taste, it has a mid range bitterness to it with a mild malty taste, a strong grapefruit flavor is also here.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mild hop aroma, a lot more caramel notes then a usual IPA. Pours a clear light amber, with a full white head. Mild citrus hop presence, with a long lingering bitter finish. Not much going on with this beer, pretty middle of the road.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Date tasted: July 13, 2013 at Bea McNally’s in Hackettstown, NJ... Glassware: pint... Occasion: celebrating a good round (aesthetics more than scores) of golf with bro Jer and Matt....Appearance: dark amber body; slow/low effervescence; thick white head that holds a finger solidly... Aroma: bright, sprucey hops; a backbone of mellow malts keeps the profile a bit unbalanced... Palate: full-bodied, effectively working the whole mouth--a good prelude for a spicy nacho appetizer...Taste: malts are in full effect, belying the IPA style this purports to be--almost an ESB underlying its hoppy flash; the pale hops build their intensity as the glass drain... Overall: aside from Matt’s sarcasm concerning the language of the beer rating world--or just me--the drinking experience was a smooth, fitting finish to a good day of golfing, with a solid strength; not so EVIL as it is EVOLVED, a pleasantly drinkable beer that subtly pushes its 6%ABV...only reservation is that it doesn’t consistently present as an India pale ale....
