2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a fairly thick light tan head on there. The smell on this one is slightly grassy, but predominantly stale (as a result from sitting on the shelf too long at Total Wine). Taste is bitter, but also tastes far less than fresh. Sad, because this could be good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can. Unfiltered hazy orange-copper body. Thin, foamy head laces up the glass. Pretty classic IPA, west coast in the sense that the malts are medium light and toasty, with a decent hop bill. Overall this is pretty tame stuff though, almost has a fishy UK feel. Drinkable, but a little lacking in body. Piny wintergreen sticky hops, classic.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can- Pours with a rather large head. Cloudy orange color with too many hop remnants to enjoy(floaties). Flavor is bold with a strong pine flavor.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can - Amber pour with a filmy light tan head. Nose is bready and real sweet, with a bit of grassy and herbal hops. Taste is sweet and bready, real heavy, with light yeast, dry herbal and grass hops, and a lightly astringent finish. Slick and medium bodied, with medium carbonation. Pretty gross for my tastes...wish breweries would stop making IPAs like this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can picked up at CBB. I really live the bew simple yet stylish labels. An opaque orange gold color with a thin beige head. A really nice hoppy bouquet, very floral & enticing. Full bodied & smooth the flavor it gives is floral, pine, citrus with a decent malt backbone. It has a lingering bitter finish with an almost minty quality to it. Tasty.

Poured from a 12 ounce can, thanks to Ed. Pours dark copper. The aroma is a touch sweet with caramel notes. The hops are woody, fruity, pine, citrus. The flavor has more of the caramel sweetness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can as "Evo IPA." Pours a hazed amber with an off-white head and several floating particles. Strongly citrusy aroma, orange and grapefruit, with some pine and caramel. Nice fresh grapefruit and pine flavors, some florals. Light with a clean palate and on the lighter side of bitterness for an IPA. It’s definitely a pretty nice one.
