COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops + Brettanomyces + Hops

Brettanomyces fermented IPA

The exploration of yeast strains and the different results we can achieve are beautifully exemplified in Evolver, a pale ale with a difference. 100% fermented with Brettanomyces. For the first 3 months the beer tastes the same as a fresh pale ale, then the differing flavour compounds start to shine through and after 6 months the Brett really takes hold.

The brettanomyces yeast is particularly good at keeping hop flavours fresh for far longer than traditional brewing yeasts. The Evolver takes on a more complex character over time as the yeast and the hops combine to produce a new and exciting beer that will continue to evolve as the yeast slowly matures the beer.

This is a beer that can be drunk fresh, as a normal pale ale or left to evolve and mature into a unique and unusual beer.

mjs (7169) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2017
(Keg at Angleterre, 20170626) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, perfume, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A brew with way too much perfume-like components.

PowY (714) - AUSTRIA - JUN 3, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a frothy white head and lot of yeast sediment. The aroma is yeasty, doughy, leathery along with fruity notes, citric fruits, tangerine, banana. Light to medium body with a medium carbonation and a light to medium bitterness. There is some bready malt in the flavor at the beginning followed by fruity hop flavors, lots of citric fruits, grapefruit, oranges, elderberry, gooseberry. Then a fruity tartness comes into play with some vegetable notes (kohlrabi). Refreshing and rather complex flavor.

ironcontra (211) - POLAND - JUN 2, 2017
On tap @ Edinburgh Beer Festival. Very herby, lotta sage, some funk, more so that wild type of bitterness as opposed to typical IPA hoppiness.
