3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Date tasted: July 13, 2013 at Bea McNallyís 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 Mattís 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 doesnít consistently present as an India pale ale....

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 50th rating for this brew. Nose is heavy fruit, tropical and very rindy with some earth and faint caramel, some woodier and earthy overtones. Orange-golden pour with slow, average carbonation and a sudsy beige head. Taste is dry with light tang, medium but developed bitterness and stronger levels of caramel and toffee, which blend nicely with the light pine and humus, rindier citrus thatís been burnished. Lightly crisp but a very heavy full body, a bit slimy, finishes dry with cracker and a bit of rye/pumpernickel, getting some great darker and earthier notes to match the wood and bitterness from the hops. Good balance and underrated at this point, methinks.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can at the bbq. Aroma is bitter grass, lemon zest, and baking soda. Pours light blonde with medium carb and a small head. Taste is bitter citrus zest, lemongrass, and a metallic aftertaste. Mouthfeel is puckeringly bitter and ultimately unpleasant. Not for me.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Pours golden with a white head. This one doesnít quite measure up. Off metallic aftertaste, not the usual hop flavors.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden bodied mildy hopped ale. The name had me expecting an over the top IPA. Evil Eye was more of a Pale Ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle. Aroma of mixed hops and ocean. Good lookin cloudy amber with a bit of lacing. Iím getting piney and grapefruit hop flavors with some toasted malt, but not enough malt for balance. Fruit notes. Aftertaste is earthy but also slightly metallic. This one misses the mark.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body under a one finger fizzy off-white head that slowly receded. The nose is just lightly hoppy with a little bit of citrus. A little too much crystal malt sweetness coming thru in the aroma, itís pretty well over powering the hops. The flavor is about what I expected from the aroma, an overly sweet, heavy on the crystal malt, instant iced tea bomb. The hops are decently citrusy and bitter but they just canít stand up to all the underlying sweetness in here. Medium bodied and a little clingy with fizzy prickly carbonation. Not my preferred take on the style.

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!
