COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Potable proof that change is good. IPA was originally a variation of English style pale ale. Its stronger, hoppier character was designed to survive the arduous overseas journey from Britain to its colonies in India. Today, just for fun, American brewers continue to alter the formula and produce bigger, even hoppier renditions like smooth, aromatic Evolution IPA.

On tap at the brewery, GABF week 2014. Copper color. mild hop aroma nd flavor. Dry, bitter hops and a solid malt base. Well balanced with the malt; I thought it was more of an American Pale Ale.

Thanks for the can, Erin. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing speckling and then sliding into the beer. The smell had a decent amount of light sweet citrus to brighten into a slight bittersweet piney - ness. The taste was bittersweet citrus to include the piney hops and eventually allows a decent light caramel malt to it. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but still carried a decent subtle smoothness to it. Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I could have again.

Picked up a 12 oz can. Amber color with a white head that goes away quickly. Good pine aroma masks the diacetyl to a point. Once it warms up, the butter aroma becomes more apparent. But luckily it’s drinkable and I put it down quickly.

Danyel (1402) - Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours brown with orange hues and white head. Aroma is bready, earthy, grapefruit, very grainy. Taste is very caramel, balanced, toasty. Pretty flat, but has great flavor. This is fantastic, not sure why it’s getting rated so harshly- it’s great!

Malty aroma with some floral hops. Taste is malty. Maybe slightly roasted malt with a descent hop balance. Full flavored well made ipa. Prefer a bit of a different hop profile but it is solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from the brewery. Pours a clear copper color with a very thin white head. Not much from the aroma. Some hops. Light flavor. Hops and some tart with a slight sense of malt. Lacking in the flavor for an IPA. But it has enough to pass.
