12oz bottle from Gabe (gmcc2181). Rating #29. Very clear medium gold appearance with a nice little white head. Aroma is light hops and crisp pale malt. Soft bitterness, bubbly and clean maltiness, not a bad pale. (1222)

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAY 7, 2010
Very pale golden color with a fizzy white head. Doesn’t look much like a pale ale to me, but that’s not gonna stop me. Sweet malts, some grassy notes, light skunk, and a bit of zesty spice in the aroma. Highly carbonated mouthfeel. Flavor is decent, but lacking. Grassy, earthy, light malt, and some sweetness. It passes but not by a whole lot.

This was only a decent pale ale for me that had a good hop aroma to it and doesn’t leave you with a bitter palate. Fairly solid but nothing over the top here.

Growler @ PPRBSG 09. Poured a slightly hazed gold color with an off-white head. Light hop aroma with citrus and floral notes. Semi-sweet caramel malt runs underneath. Orange and citrus hop forward flavor. Light bodied.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Bottle shared with firends in Baltimore. Very nice for a pale ale, gloden color, clear, modest head no lacing, a slight nutty dry effect at the finish. Marc 2012 on tap in Dc. ue ead some lacin, ave to say it was muc like a well opped Pilsner, modest carbonation.

Small white head, fair retention, spotty lace. Lightly hazy pale lager color. Faint nose, malt, must. Light bodied, almost watery. Some malty notes, caramel and some grassy, citrusy notes. Dry tinny finish. Bottle procured @statelineliquors.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2010
PPRBSG 09. Pours a light clear golden and a nice head. Aroma is lemon and herbs, citrus with bubblegum phenolics and crackery malts. Flavor is a bit bland- cracker doughy yeasty bubblegum, fruity orange zest, lemon and a bit bready as it warms. Somewhat clean and smooth.

gsmitty80 (1831) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 25, 2010
This was my first beer from Evolution and I was very happy. The apa was very hoppy with a good malting and mouthfeel throughout. There was no watery taste and it was just a nice enjoyable beer. I wish more APA’s had this flavor.

20100117 12oz bottle from State Line. I was pretty excited to get my hands on this one because for an upstart local brewery Evolution’s beers have been a bit tricky to come by initially. Fairly basic American pale ale. Light, clear amber with small white head. Aroma is mild but some notes of pine, citrus. Body is decent, medium light with even eff, a bit sweet up front, drying across the middle, and pleasant finishing bitterness. Somewhat bland stuff, unfortunately, and not quite sturdy. In fact, it couldn’t quite hold its own vs some fairly mild cheddar cheese.

pours golden and a little hazy with thin head. aroma i yeasty and earthy. mouthful is more of the same with a little hop hidden in there. definitely needing more hops for a pale ale..
