On tap while in local area; had not heard of this brewery and was a pleasant surprise of somewhat subtle but well balanced IPA nose followed by very nicely balanced Imperial combo of malts and hops with notes of pine/earth predominating.

On draft at the local sports bar, poured into lager glass a copper-orangy color. Aroma hit me with grass, citrus and pine. Taste seemed a little lighter then the aroma, pine seemed to dominate along with the added sweetness. Alcohol was pretty mild for the style, overall not bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Churchkey. Hazy orange/amber pour, smallish white bubbly head. Nose holds nice grapefruit, nectarine, mango, and touches of floral hops. Flavor is much of the same, with great orange rind and lemon, but drinks incredibly easily for a 9.3% brew. Good stuff!

Saw it on draft @ Bulls & Bears and decided to give it a shot. I like their Lot 3 IPA a good bit.
Poured a clear copper-ish color with a small off-white head. A little bit of a retention and some notable lacing going on here.
Has a citrusy tropical fruit hoppiness about its aroma. along with some malty sweetness.
Citrusy & herbal hops. A lot more piney resin flavor than the aroma gave off. Not overly bitter. Quite balanced by a huge malt backbone to stand up to the hops, I’ve noticed Evolution seems to overcompensate here. A little on the sweet side but that was expected.
Medium bodied with an oily, juicy mouthfeel. Perfect bitterness in the finish and the high alcohol is hidden well. Pretty nice DIPA and another decent brew from this newer local brewery.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear orangey copper color with a two finger sticky white head that lasts. Aroma of grassy and citrus hops with toasted grains and sweet malt blended nicely with a mild alcohol presence. Taste has big resiny and leafy hops up front, grapefruit citrus flavors throughout, along with a mild tart middle and a sweet and tart finish. Medium bodied, crisp, with an edge to it, and moderate carbonation. Excellent representation of the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Half-finger white creamy head, lightly hazy coppery orange. Lots of tropical fruit in the aroma from the hops, light grapefruit and slight sweetness as well. Quite bitter, but very fruity with tropical and stone fruit with a lingering hop burn, fairly balanced. Medium to thicker body with tiny bubbly carbonation. Pretty tasty.
