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.

Kinz (3696) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2016
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.

HoppyScallywag (273) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2016
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stevoj (3608) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 24, 2016
on tap at City Tap House in DC. Smooth, mildly tart, slightly chalky IPA favoring some citrus hops. Hazy pour with soft silky head, dry finish cleans the palate. IPA leaning heavily towards APA territory.

Lubiere (12396) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
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.
