A- Plain copper color. Like an IPA should look like.

S- Great smell. Lot of citrus and floral scents coming through. Smells only a tad bit hoppy.

T- Exceptional hoppy flavor. Citrus flavors ruminate after first tasting. This beer has the similar bitter bite that Ninkasi IPA has to it.

M- Great texture and feel in the mouth. Does not dry your mouth out like other stronger IPA's tend to do to me.

O- Best beer that I've tasted from Two Beers Brewery. They are close to my house so I'm excited to visit them. This is a great beer to introduce someone to IPA. Lots of strong supporting flavors, not to much hop.

Wonderful beer.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance - bright orange, mostly transparent, good retention, moderate lacing

Smell - tropical and citrus hops, sweet malts

Taste - tropical hops up front, tons of nice hop flavor, some bite in the end

Mouthfeel - light body for an IPA, a bit slick

Overall - nice hop bill, could use a bit more body, overall a hop forward IPA that has bitter hop qualities, good if you like hops

Pours amber into a Deschutes tulip.
Nice two finger head retains well. Good lace pattern.
Smooth balanced flowery with plenty of hop flavor.
Aftertaste very pleasant. No cloy whatsoever.
A very good West Coast representation of the style.
Two Beers makes it very easy to drink local.

22oz bottle courtesy of Harrymel. Dark amber-orange, hazy, good creamy head that laces the glass. Smells pretty good, very hoppy but a fruity hoppiness not so much dank or pine. Flavor is nice and fruity as well, easy to drink. good stuff. This is a good Northwest IPA and I wouldn't mind another!

Pour - bright amber with lots of reds and oranges and a big, sticky white head on top. This has some serious lacing. All those tiny little bubbles cascading upwards sure is a nice sight to see as well.

Aroma - you want fresh hops? Perhaps the type of hop aroma that tickles the inside of your sinuses? Well, here you go! Evolutionary IPA has a lot of piney, resiny hoppy goodness going on and its very apparent even from a few feet away. Some nice citrus smell like grapefruit and lemon round out the aroma. Does it get much better than a very aromatic India Pale Ale? I think not...

Taste - a sip of this and you'll get a sense of where all 70 of those IBUs are coming from. Lots of hop flavor is packed into each sip and defended against lupulin overkill by a solid, sweet malty backbone. With Magnum, Simcoe, and Amarillo hops going into this IPA you're tasting some nice array of pineapple and other tropical fruits along with your typical citrus tastes like orange and lemon. This is an IPA that will make your tongue satisfyingly dry but bring it back to life with every sip. Delicious.

Overall - great IPA. This has all the features I'm looking for in an assertive West Coast India Pale Ale. Big hop aroma and flavor and bitter enough to make you know your not just drinking some hoppy amber ale. Well done and I think the aluminum outfit suits it well!

Would I buy more of it? - abso-HOP-lutely. Very tasty IPA with lots of great hop aroma and flavor. It pays to be near the source and you can taste it.
