1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. This poured with an alarming amount of head and at least a partially vinegary aroma. Not a good sign. Once the wild foam settled, what was left was a scarily chunky, pale orange brew with almost no life. The beer drinks with a thin mouthfeel, metallic tingle, and a vague malty citrus. Disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. I am super confused by this being labeled as a pale. It is a Belgian single or I have never had a beer. And it is à good one. Deep mostly clear gold. Very nice aroma of orange and maybe light pine. That fruitiness continues into the flavor with coriander. Balanced. The body slick but light with big prickly carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep gold pour, white head. Very plain caramel malt nose with some spent grain and mild, dull hops. Flavor is more sweet than I expected. No hops to speak of. Very average...at best.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp. Good lacing on thick foam head. Poured from bottle. Dry and slightly hopping. Refreshing. Not much character. A safe bet but nothing special.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap. Poured a hazy light orange with a creamy white head. Orange and vanilla on the nose. Thin body, unimpressive quick finish. Some strange metallic malt flavor going on.

Tap @ brewery. Pours clear gold with medium white head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is grassy and floral hops, biscuit malt, light fruit, and faint spice. Flavor is malt forward, light esters, and dominate hops; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation, low warmth

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to anggrec for this one. Pours nice enough, light amber with a thin head. The aroma is mild with bread and malts. The flavor is very much like a lager though. My least favorite of the few from Evolution.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle via trade. Looks pretty nice, crystal clear golden with a one finger white head and good lacing. The aroma is decent, with bready malt, orange, mint, and pine. The flavor is strange however. A very pilsner-like malt base, which yields to a very strange hop note. There is some citrus and pine, but then there’s also a bizarre medicinal/minty flavor on the finish. It’s almost numbing on the alcohol, like rubbing alcohol, with medium body and good crispness despite the oddness. This is crapft beer night it seems. Didn’t like this much.
