3.31/5  rDev -6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Cloudy amber with a three fingered cream color head with very good retention. Good amount of lacing. Smell is malty bread dough with a touch of floral hops.
Taste is citrus and piney hops with a big push of bready malts. No idea how old this can might be but the hops have faded in the nose and taste. Seems more like a 35 IBU than 70. Mouthfeel is too little carbonation with a medium body. Finish is long dry and bitter.
Overall a bit underwhelming for a Northwest IPA. I will try this again and hope I can find something a bit more fresh.

3.85/5  rDev +9.4%
look: 2 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

$1.69 for a 12oz can at Siciliano's. Brewed with Base Malt, Munich, Vienna, Crystals and carapils. Hopped with Yakima Valley Simcoe, Amarillo and Centennial, then aggressively dry-hopped with Simcoe and Columbus.
OG=1.064, 16 SRM, 70 IBU's, 6.2% ABV.

Pours out to a murky copper, forming a wispy light yellow head with poor retention and good lacing. Carbonation is moderate, ~2.5 carbs. Loads of flittering chunks of yeast/hop debris like someone put a teaspoon of fish flakes in your beer. Pour carefully! Nose has nice notes of grapefruit, pine resin, and mango. Cleanly fermented. Mouthfeel is crisp, clean, a touch of acidity from the hops, mild astringency in the finish, medium bodied. The taste opens with mango, grapefruit, pine resin, sitting on top of a chewy malt body. Well balanced bitterness with some residual crystal malt sweetness, but overall astringent. Nice earl grey tea note in the finish.

A really nice IPA in the can, but considering the copious sediment, it's best drank out of a glass with a careful decant. Kinda defeats the purpose of the can unless you don't mind drinking muck. Nice beer though. Would buy it again.

I got a can of Two Beers Brewing Co.'s Evolutionary IPA from @Another6pack, thanks a lot. I've never had anything from Two Beers before and I'm interested to see how this IPA turns out, so lets see how it goes. No visible canning date. Poured from a 12oz can into a imperial pint glass.

A- The can looks good, it's got a nice outdoor scene on it and it looks likes a beer you should take with you on a camping trip. It poured a hazy copper/orange color that took on more of brighter orange and ruby hue when held to the light with two fingers worth of fluffy off white head that died down to a thin ring that stayed till the end and it left lots of sticky lacing behind. This is a very nice looking beer, I really liked the color and the head and lacing were also good.

S- The aroma starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness that bordered one being highly sweet and it's followed by the hops being the first to show up and they impart a nice mixture of citrus hops, citrus rinds, slightly soapy, slightly floral and piney hops aromas with the citrus hops and citrus rind aromas seeming to stick out the most. Up next comes the malts which are a little on the light side and they impart some bready, grainy and sweet malt like aromas. This beer had a pretty nice aroma, the malts showed up just enough.

T- The taste seems to be fairly similar to the aroma and it starts off with a slightly higher amount of medium sweetness followed by the hops still being the first to show up and they impart all the aspects that they did in the aroma but this time they seem to be lighter, but they are also pretty even and no soapy hops seem to show up. Up next comes the malts which impart some grainy, bready and slight sweet malt flavors. On the finish there's a higher amount of medium bitterness followed by a citrus rind, hoppy and slightly lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. This was a nice tasting IPA, but I wish the citrus hop and citrus rind aspects came through a little more like they did in the aroma.

M- Fairly smooth, clean, a little crisp, slightly sticky, on the slightly thicker side of being medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel was nice and it worked well with this beer.

Overall I thought this was a nice beer and a slightly above average example of a American IPA, there seemed to be nice balance in the taste and aroma, but the hop profile lacked some of those bright flavors that I expect from a West coast style IPA. This beer had nice drinkability, it was fairly smooth, clean, a little crisp, not too filling and the taste did a decent job at holding my attention, I could drink a couple of these but I really don't have the urge to drink another one in a row, so one might be my limit. What I like the most about this beer was the appearance and aroma, they were the highlights of this beer and I thought it looked really nice. What I liked the least about this beer was that more of those citrus hops and citrus rind flavors didn't come through as much as they did in the aroma, I think a brighter citrus flavor would help this beer out a little. I would buy a single of this if I knew it was really fresh and I would recommend it as a solid IPA. All in I thought this IPA was pretty solid, it's a little far from the best IPA I've had, but it's not where near the worst and I'm happy to have the chance to try. This made for a decent first impression for Two Beers and I'm interested in trying more of their beers. Solid work guys, hopefully I'll stumble across more of your beers.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Can picked up in MI this past week-end. Pours an oily, tawny orange colour with a limited off-white head that disappears quickly but leaves an impressive amount of lacing down all contact surfaces. A very subtle aroma that is more malt-forward than I'd choose and with few of the citrus or floral elements nicely present in the taste. The taste also has good depth. A body including tropical fruit notes with a pepperiness to the finish. Overall a decent but unremarkable APA that I would like to try again, fresh on draught

Even though the can is labeled "Evo IPA" like in the retired section of this brewery, I went to go there and lo and behold it guides me back to this. Ok, well, uh...I guess I'll put this review here, ok... well, here goes:

Into a pint glass:

A: hazy orange somewhat golden brown colored body with a one finger white foamy head that graces the sides of the pint glass nicely in a decent spider web sort of fashion

S: bitter yet somewhat sweet through some floral yet citrusy sort of aromas, how does it combine....hmmm...it actually leaves a bit to be desired

T: mainly sweet through floral citrusy tones, but entering in there's a sort of bitter back end to complement or maybe even balance it to help make it the AIPA it says it is; dry citrus fruity-like aftertaste; just a dry finish

M: light to medium, sessionable - hmm...slightly, carbonation seems just a tad smoother than most AIPA's of what I've had, decent for the style

O: hmmm....wish there was a canning date on this, hmmm....unsure if I'd come back to this, at the moment, I think I'd rather have their session ISA

3.9/5  rDev +10.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours cloudy orange amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, orange rind, tangerine, pineapple, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with bright hop notes and a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, orange rind, pineapple, floral, grass, light pine, bread, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Moderate earthy floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, citrus rind, pineapple, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly crisp and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around nice hop flavor balance and complexity with moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

2.06/5  rDev -41.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 1.75

From 12 oz can to pint glass

A: Copper-tan in color, clear, forms a tight bubbly head that never fully recedes.

S: Floral hops at the front of the nose, earthy. Smells like iced tea mixed with cooked corn and wheat bread. Weird.

T: Astringent, bitter hops at the front. Not piny or citrusy, but earthy, muddled and strangely bitter. Floral-edged hop-profiles often hit of tea, but this might as well have been mixed with ice tea...and not in a good way. Toffee-sweetness is distinct, but doesn't really balance the astringent aspects. Finishes the way it began, bitter, with the different flavor tones all over the place.

M: Medium-bodied, appropriately carbonated for the style.

Possibly the worst modern IPA's I've tasted. Instead of complimenting and harmonizing with each other, the flavors diverge, and individually these, bitter, sweet and bready notes taste terrible. Weird, tea-like nose. Maybe the idea was a Northwest, floral-type IPA, but this tastes like a homebrew gone awry. Try again.

4.16/5  rDev +18.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

12oz can poured into a pint glass. No canning dates or codes or whatnot that I can find.

Pours a nice coppery color, clear, with a large, fluffy beige head which leaves big clumpy lacing. Not a whole lot of active carbonation. Very pretty. Smell is piney, grassy, a little bit floral. I'd say mostly grassy. Oddly, I think I get a hint of mint.

Taste is nicely balanced. Again, strangely, a little mint suggestion, a bit stronger than the aroma. Very piney bitter, slight caramel sweetness. This is a tasty beer.

Mouthfeel is a little oily, a little creamy. Overall, I'm pretty darn happy with this beer.

I bought a bomber of Evolution IPA in a bottle shop. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a copper color, slightly hazy with a creamy off-white head.

Smell is a sweet candy and fruit aroma, caramel and lemon.

Taste is a dominant caramel malt flavor, with a mild citrus taste on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth. Somewhat cloying for the style.

Over all a good IPA, not great. Bump the ABV and might be a decent DIPA.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Copper, clear, nice off white lace.

Smell is lemon merengue, sweet malt, marmelade.

Taste is also malty, tons of that iced-tea flavor uou get from two much crystal malt. With the citrus hops, it's remiscent of lipton, with a dry, fairly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is medium+, dry.

Drinkability isn't killer to my taste In IPA, not a fan of the iced tea with modest hops by local standards. As far as any old ale though, it was easy enough to slurp down.

A deep musty rusty brown color with a big off-white head and chunky lacing. The aroma brings doughy grapefruit with a heavy yeast idea. Interesting and fairly likeable. The flavor brings an odd collection of tart sweet lemon and vanilla yeast and orange malt. Very interesting but not quite getting to my IPA needs. It grows on you but the hops are largely lost in a sugary yeast theme. This brew is medium-light bodied with frothy carbonation and feel. Unique and a memorable IPA but this probably won’t work for all IPA lovers.

Thanks to 5000 for sending this can my way.

The beer pours an orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and grass notes, with not much else coming through. The flavor is more pronounced. I get a lot of the orange and pine notes from the hops, as well as some biscuit malt and a low to medium amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Side-note: I originally had this beer (about two weeks prior) in a can (for a roadie) and was amazed...and was hoping for another chance to review...this time in a bomber-bottle...

P:1 Pint, 6ozs brown bottle with a simple lime-green label with hops illustrated ...

Appearance: Hazy orange/copper beer with a patchy cream off-white foam head that clings to the sides of the glass.

Smell: Very pronounced malts & hop aromas, marmalade with background sweet malts and a heavy bready grain aroma.

Taste: Big malts! This is has some orange peel light hop feel, but mostly malty...

Mouthfeel is a medium carbinated beer with a malty thick full-body.

Taste: The initial taste is malts with orange peel, followed by an some hops...

Mouthfeel A medium/heavy beer with medium (decent) carbination that is heavy, yet smooth...

Notes: This one I first saw (in a can) at an independent grocery store near where I live. I loved how smooth it was...I looked forward to sitting down to review either finding it on tap, or in a bottle...I found it at another market (similar to Whole Foods) in a 22 ozs bomber...Although still smooth, not as good as I remembered it in the can...maybe I was so impressed canned beer could be so good (compared to other macro beers)...after all, kegs are canned beer to eh?!...Chasin' Cheers :~)

Appearance is a hazy amber supporting a healthy thick head. Smell is sweet with the caramel malt with piney hops and citrusy fruit. Taste has the sweetness from the malt and a bitter "twang"if you will, from the hops and yeast. Mouthfeel is light medium with good carbonation. A little off in the flavor profile with the twanginess, but still has that base for an IPA.

Thanks to pwnzilla for this stubby little can. So used to seeing a Surly can in my paw that this seems like it's made for kids. It isn't. I don't think. 12 oz. can poured into a pint glass.

Looks like an IPA, light orange with only a slight haze, but rich in carbonation. Nose is on the meadowy side, lots of grassiness & a strong floral piece. Faint citrus.

Evolutionary IPA doesn't cut it on the West Coast scene. Initial impression is there's not much initial impression. Lots of sweet malts up front, with a background bitterness that slowly builds for about six seconds after the swallow. Bit of grapefruit, maybe citrus, but the taste is more resinous than any specific hoppy-like taste. I do like that stickiness.

I can't imagine this beer is going to compete well with all the crazy good IPAs on the West Coast. Not bad by any means, this is actually a good beer, but it has Ron Jeremy-stiff competition on its hands. If a balanced IPA is your thing, go grab some.

Thanks to Francois for cracking this.

Light fizzy head, clear amber reddish orange color.

Taste nice tropical fruit, light grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine with light citrus, hint if musty resin, light pine, decent bitterness. Finish is somewhat bitter, dry, lingering piny and tropical fruit hops, long bitter.

Mouth is med bodied, decent carb but less than I expected for can.

Overall nice, good hops, not too bitter, refreshing, nice tropical fruit without resin.

12 oz can. No canning dates. Reviewed 3/20/12.

Clear, light copper body. Pours a thick, off-white head that settles out to a patchy cover.

Lots of caramel malt aromas, with some burnt orange peel. Floral and pine hops. Pretty balanced nose.

Malty flavors at first, biscuits and caramel. Slight toasted essence. Leads into some orange peel flavors, with a floral sweetness. Finish is dry and woody, with some pine bitterness. The bitterness is a tad on the harsh side.

A wholly average IPA. Good flavors and hits all the notes it should, but doesn't challenge.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a medium dark orange amber, one finger fine white head and lacing. Looks nice. Aroma of herbal hops, faint malt. Taste is herbal and citrus hops, followed by sweet malt and a dry, lingering ascerbic bitterness that is not supported by the earlier herbal qualities. Nice start, but lacking in the finish. Medium bodied.

Another can courtesy of the legendary woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. This beer came gushing out of the can and settled down to have a burnt orange color with a 2 inch head. Smell is dominated by hops. Taste is also of hops, some light citrus notes, no real malt balance to speak of. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

22 oz brown wax topped bomber into a tulip glass. I enjoyed this one in early Sept. 2011.

Pours a slightly hazed copper, with a several overly foamy fingers of off-white head. This eventually shrinks down to a rich ½ finger, which just drenches the sides of the glass with thick foamy swathes of lace. The aroma is floral, with a touch of a leafy dankness to it, and I’m sad to find, some mineral (almost metallic) off-notes. Citric fruit and malt add a bitter smelling twang across the back of the nose.

The taste has a bright grapefruit character to it that intertwines with a herbal feel. Malts are sweet across the back and help balance out the bulk of that leafy bitterness. Pine and pith finish this strong, with a moderate dryness that sticks to the tongue. Unfortunately, there is a bit of unwanted tartness going on here that makes me think (along with the off nose and overly foamy pour) that there is an infection starting to take shape here. The mouthfeel is medium bodied but as you would expect, is heavily overly carbonated. There is however some underlying slickness here to this and I will say that the sharpness does start to die down after a while.

This was the initial bottling of this beer and well, it showed. Something obviously got in here. It’s a shame to, as I had an opportunity to sample this on tap as well at the same liquor store that I purchased the bottle from and it showed some real promise.

The last of the three CANs from Two Beers B.C., courtesy of inflatablechair. I am really grateful for the hook-up and I urge others to keep their eyes peeled for new CANned beers for me to add to The CANQuest (TM). What once was a habit is now unquestionably a vice.

From the CAN: "This beer is made for the adventurer, the one not afraid of the nuances of life, the complexity of decisions, or the unknown turn in the road ahead. So if you like to embrace life to the fullest, then this is the beer for you. Cheers! [undersigned] Joel"; "Crafted using Washington Hops and Grains".

The Crack & Glug was a bit surprising to me, given the active nature of the previous two CANned beers from these guys. I did not generate a lot of head, despite nearly inverting the CAN and still ended up with barely a finger of tawny head with moderate retention. Zounds, but the hops were pungent on this one, also! Grapefruit and pine in abundance and my hophead jones monkey suddenly reappeared, screeching on my back. Color was a lightly-hazy orangish amber. Mouthfeel seemed a little thin, but the wash of hops across my tongue made up for the modest shortcoming. My, but this was tasty, especially the way the grapefruit flavor was prevalent but not overwhelming. Finish was solid, bitter, and just what the hops doctor ordered and in a CAN no less. This definitely merits CANsideration for cooler space IMHO.

Copper and amber appearance, has the look of a good ipa, white head, about 1". Aroma wasn't dry hoppy enough, plenty of bitterness noticeable in the aroma, but lacked green vegetalness.

Taste, ah, another bitter bomb lacking hop mouthfeel. Substantial malt ratio, a nice move given the high bitterness. Grapefruit and caramel. It seems to be bigger than the abv indicates, just doesn't impart enough of what an ipa should be about: hops. All bitterness and heavy malt. Bring the hops and the citrus flavors next time.
