3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle. Pours a dark gold color with two fingers of head. There is quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is a mix of citrus and pine, with pine being just a bit more dominant. Tastes are expected hop bitterness, pine and resin, a bit of citrus. Mid-taste there is a blip of malt sweetness, then finishes with a touch of bitterness. Finish is fairly short, but leaves you wanting another sip. This is very good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A big, sticky, pine-covered mountainside of a beer. Plenty of hops to recommend it and a fair amount of balancing caramel malts to even up the equation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky reddish-copper colored beer with a thick bubbly white head. Nose of pine resin, spruce, and citrus. Flavor is nicely hopped with bright-bitter flavors of resin, citrus, and rosemary, but not over-powering. It has a bracing effervescence that compliments the flavor nicely. A good, solid IPA.

4.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is an excellent well balanced ipa. Super bitter and extremely hoppy. Very little aftertaste with this one. Reminds me of antihero but even better

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber with a generous off-white, almost orange, long-lasting head and moderate lace. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerines, tobacco and mint with toasted bread in the background. Flavors are similar, featuring the toasted malt which supports the citrus hop highlights. Medium body, oily slickness on the palate, medium carbonation and a clean hoppy finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle into pint glass. Hazy orange-amber color with off-white head. Aroma of citrus/piney hops, caramel malt, somewhat floral and toasty. Taste makes the hops lean more resin and grapefruit/mango/pineapple citrus, nice balance with the caramel malt, somewhat herbal, kind of a biscuit note. Medium body, low carbonation, hoppy yet flavorful, smooth, dry, oily with bitter finish. The piney/tropical hops battle it out well, good offering from Evolution.
