Tap at the brewpub. Amber with white head. Tangerine and piney aroma. High bitterness on the tongue but it feels fairly balanced. Couldn’t really detect the honey. Good. Dogbrick (14391) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2017
Sample at the tap room during "GABF In-House Tappings & Events" on 10/05/2017. Clear reddish-amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of resiny hops, fruit and rye. Medium to full body with flavors of piney hops, citrus and rye malt. The finish is moderately bitter with an earthy hop and rye aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

On tap at Hops & Pie. Golden to amber colored and clear in appearance with a beige head. Aroma of piney hops, mild citrus fruit, toasted malt, light honey and a touch of caramel/toffee. Similar flavor, adding moderate bitterness and balanced by a mild sweetness. Medium to full body with a light dry feel and a lingering finish with a hint of booze. Nice.

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 (3929) - 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 (79) - 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.
