On tap Union Jacks (north hills). Nicely balanced big and bold IPA with good combination of fresh hop flavors and well pronounced bitterness. Body was just a bit sweet for me, but overall I’ve really like the beers that Evolution has been producing.

GBBF Day 3. Cask. Lightly hazy amber beer, small bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Good fine carbonation. Nice condition. Smooth malt base, whisper of caramel toffee. Great juicy hops - orange, orange marmalade, tangerine, hop spice, light floralness. Semi dry finish with more juicy hop. Spicy linger. Very nice.
