3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
After having Evolution’s 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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Unique, almost piney aroma. The initial taste causes the tongue to tingle entirely and hops tease it. The bitterness slowly builds to a moderate level and pine sits alongside it. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A golden ipa with a thick frothy off white head. In aroma, nice caramel malt with loads of resinous piney floral hops, light treacle, very pungent and pleasant. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with grassy floral hops, a bit lighter than expected, but balanced, quaffable. On tap at Local Tavern, PHL.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber, medium beige head, dissipates fairly quickly with good lacing. Aroma is high on pine & caramel, a fair bit of citrus. Flavor is light plus sweet, light bitter, actually pretty decent if a bit malty. Medium body.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy brown amber, bubbly head and lacing.
Malt and hops hit me right up front, followed by unique bitter notes.
Reminiscent of Sierra Nevada Hop Hunter.
