On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orange copper with medium off white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is rye, pine, resin. Medium body, grapefruit, pine, lingering bitter finish, very good. Skinnyviking (9570) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2016
Draught at the brewery. High fluffy lasting off-white head. Clear amber body. Fruity grass lomon grape pine aroma and flavor with a nice hops bitterness. High carbonation, long finish, alochol nicely hidden. GarrettB (1599) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 24, 2016
September 4th, 2014 - The second beer after the principal recipe at Black Shirt is the Red Evelyn, very similar in color to the Colorado (red and mostly clear) with a hoppy nose, but more grass and hay on this one. In the flavor I get more of a hop dimension than the original recipe, and it’s a little sweeter, too. Pine and herbaceousness define the flavor profile, though, and are well supported by the carbonation and lighter palate. drjay44 (3708) - Salida, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2015
651 ml. bottle. Vintage 2014. 9.32% ABV per the brewery. Pours a medium, ivory, well retained head, with sea foam lacing, over a very slightly hazy amber (SRM 14) body....nose is light toasted malts with hints of toffee/caramel, light biscuit, strong hop notes with pine, resin, citrus peel, light floral tones, no esters, balance to the hops.....taste is slightly sweet with toffee/caramel tones, hints of dried fruit type sweetness, including raisin, fig, light rye spice, pine, resin, grapefruit peel lingering bitterness, light floral tones, balance to the hops......mouth feel, medium heavy body, sticky, alcohol warmth present, carbonation adds a lightly creamy character. This is obviously a Specialty Grain with the rye spice notes in both aroma and flavor, but the layers of hops make it an I/DIPA variation. It is quite well done, with good complexity in both aroma and flavor, and is reasonably close in over all balance. BJCP 9/3/15/5/7 handsomejn (77) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Wonderful rendition of this style. Clear red amber pour with a nice tan head and beautiful lacing. Nice bitter flavor up front with a citrusy candy store aroma. Long finish is pungent and quite nice.

The best imperial red IPA I've ever had. Bottle was labeled August 2013 and poured reddish amber with a thick foamy head. Rye taste is present but not overwhelming. Very complex hop profile that is just delicious. Finishes dry and smooth.

Brilliant clear amber with a foamy sticky lacy head. Big nose of rye bread, sweet grapefruit, and earthy caramel. Nice flavors of deep rich caramaltiness, spicy rye, citrus bitterness, with a bittersweet slightly boozy finish. Very lovely.
