A reddish copper pour, light tan head with decent retention. Aromas of pineapple, mandarin orange, and light honey. Flavors of pineapple and grapefruit with bitterness just barely taking the lead over the malt, and then a little sweetness comes through. Mouthfeel is a bit think initially, but improves. Aftertaste of lightly bitter citrus rind. An IPA that's simple and easy-drinking, but has just enough flavor to keep my interest for a pint.

Mediocre. A bit disappointing given the nose. Not my favorite use of C-hops.

As soon as I crack the tab on the can the aroma comes gushing out. Popping with juicy sweet fruits and floral hops. That fades and it becomes more grainy and caramel malts. Stays relatively sweet though.

Oh yeah, the appearance: deep orange amber. Nice white head dissipates eventually to a simple cap, but laces up nicely.

While the aroma was more sweet, the flavour certainly presents the bittering side much more decisively. Grapefruit and orange rind. Finish is pithy with a touch of the juicy note promised on the nose, gives some service to the caramel promises made earlier as well. Lastingly bitter.
Small carbonation tickles more than it dances. Smoothe and drinkable. Bitter finish coats things in a pleasantly warm manner. Into it.

Appearance - Pours a hazy amber brown with a finger of bubbly white head.

Smell - citrus and floral hops, grapefruit rind, bready malts, and sweet caramel.

Taste - Pleasant punch from the citrus and floral hops followed by the grapefruit rind, bready malts, and sweet caramel.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a pleasant bitterness and sweetness from the caramel.

Overall - A standard but enjoyable American IPA. The aroma was a little bit of let down but the taste certainly made up for the aroma to make it more true to the style. Nice to see a new offering from Seattle here in Cowtown.

22oz bottle, now just called 'Evo IPA' on the product recently shipped north of 49.

This beer pours a clear, bright medium copper amber colour, with two fat fingers of puffy, densely foamy, and bubbly beige head, which leaves some pleasantly splotchy webbed lace around the glass as it slowly recedes.

It smells of bitter grapefruit and orange rind, a further bit of lemon wedge and a slight soapy edge to its prominent hoppiness, with a tame crackery, grainy pale malt and oh so subtle caramel sweetness passing for offset here. The taste is a bit more balanced, the bready, doughy, and laid-back crackery malt holding fast, with the edgy floral, piney, and meekly citrusy hops reveling in their counterpoint.

The bubbles are steadfast in their supportive duties, and little more, the body average in its medium weight, and generally smooth, without much interference from the hops on this account, so, good! It finishes off-dry, just, the malt giving up the ghost, while the otherwise plodding west coast hops keep on keepin' on.

A so-so Yankee IPA, the attendant bitterness eventually lacking any tangent to real-world savoury pleasure - ya know, the fruit or the forest floor goodness. Anyways, simple in its rendering, and overtly boozy by the end, which speaks to a certain lack of integration. Oh well - this joint is drinkable enough for a Friday night, IYKWIM.
