3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
After having Evolutionís Lot 6 and really liking it I was anxious to give this one a try. Pours a very light amber with ample head. Aroma is what I expect from an IPA and consists mainly of pine but there are also hints of citrus, floral and tropical fruit. Taste follows the nose and is very clean and crisp. The body is medium and the finish is slightly dry. Although this beer lacks the complexities of many DIPAs I think it is a very well done IPA and would make an excellent session beer. Next weekend I am going to try some other offerings from Evolution because the two I have had so far were both excellent. I think the rating here is a little low.

This American style IPA is agressively hopped at a rate of over 2lbs. per barrel. Big notes of citrus and pine compliment a reserved but firm malt backbone.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
appearance: coppery orange, short and frothy light tan head but decent lacing. aroma: grapefruit and pine, a lovely combo, over some graham cracker and caramel malt notes. taste: resinous pine most prominent, followed by grapefruit and maybe pineapple; thereís caramel malt backbone under it. finish: dry, with lasting piney bitterness that creeps right up to the edge of dank. notes: I like my IPAs with a touch more malt at the core, but this was still nicely done. Bottle from who knows where, this stuff is all over the place.

This is a terrific beer. I have tried different brewing companies, and I donít want to make generalizations, but the many beers they have can be almost there but not quite. For me, as a go to beer, this is very pleasant, good carbonation and head, but the taste is the thing. Malty background but just the right amount of hop bite and sweet finish. This company gets a very high rating from me, their other beers very good too, the ones that I thought were good are just an afterthought now. This beer is well balanced and refined, and their new Pinehople IPA is a smooth one too. Only one that has beaten this one out so far is the Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin, thatís world class and this one is one fine choice regardless.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler fill from Whole Foods Short Pump. Poured a light copper, clear, slight creamy head that lasts well. Aroma is lightly caramel malts and gummy pine sap hops. Flavor is piney hops followed by some grapefruit and tropical fruit notes, moving into a slightly sweet caramel malt accented finish. Lingering bitterness. For lack of a better way of putting it, this came across as a well executed old school IPA. Nice.

Draft to pint in Washington DC pour light copper with thin tan head. Nose mango and tropical fruit hop, light floral. Taste similar to nose with fruity hop. Sweeter malt mid palate and through the finish.
