On tap Union Jacks (north hills). Nicely balanced big and bold IPA with good combination of fresh hop flavors and well pronounced bitterness. Body was just a bit sweet for me, but overall I’ve really like the beers that Evolution has been producing.

This is a realing solid IPA. Has a big pine citrus aroma. Nice hoppy taste with flavors of grapefruit, orange peel and piney notes with a malt finish. Very tasty

Moderate to full, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish aroma, some caramel and faint bread, some tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit/ piney hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, some caramel and tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit/piney hoppyness.

Leighton (13565) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Draft at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 3 - London. Pours clear gold with a foam white head. Big dank hop nose with lots of urine, mango. Medium sweet flavor with lightly sugary pale malts, some oily pine, papaya and mango, more pissy hops. Medium bodied with fine carbonation; good condition. Nicely resinous on the finish with lots of juicy hops, more pee. Sublime.

Just had my first one on draft at Bethany Blues in Lewes. Goes down so smooth, I prefer Dogfish 60 or 90, but wanted to try this one. I will get it again sometime, it’s great.

Had this on draft in Norfolk, and it’s super good. Massive just massive amounts of pine and citrus. Like drinking fresh grapefruit juice. As it warms up, the citrus turns into a candied fruit, tropical juice taste. Really surprised by this, I’m glad I tried it!

bkurtz (955) - PERU - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle - Pours a clear amber/orange with a fairly big, creamy head and some lacing. Aromas of pine, then citrus, mostly orange. Juicy beer with the aromas continuing through the taste, some sweetness ending with a bitter finish. Good IPA.

AWISLguy (1660) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. Orangey pour with an off-white head leaving a lot of nice lace. Aroma has big juicy fruity hops, with a solid tangy pine component. Taste is of sweet fruits, tangy pine and some grapefruit, with a toffee backend. Medium bodied and a bit sticky. Finishes nicely bittersweet with a touch more bitter - very hoppy - and quite dry. A solid hoppy effort. Will be interested to see what the DIPA brings. 14.4

Pours clear copper color with off white head. Aromas of caramel malt, pine, and some grapefruit. Sweet malt flavor with some pine and citrus. Medium body with average carbonation. Too malty for an IPA for me.
