4.2/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

12oz. bottle poured into pint glass. Had this about a week or so ago—reviewing from some notes I jotted into my phone.

A: Pours a pristine copper hue with a light haze from the hops. Massive, bubbly and frothy head almost defies the laws of gravity as it towered almost out of the glass! The sides of the glass are absolutely shrouded in sticky lacing. Head eventually deflated to about a finger-width and retained wonderfully.

S: Mostly a hop assault. Tons of grapefruit citrus. Slight hints of pine underneath adding some rustic notes.

T: Lots of grapefruit upfront on the tongue followed by some very flowery hop flavors and a pinch of piney/grassy bitterness that borders on pungent, but doesn't quite cross those boundaries. Bitterness mellows out a bit in the aftertaste thanks to a reserved malt presence.

M: A smidge above medium in the body with a slick, creamy texture and controlled carbonation keeps this from feeling too chewy. Lightly sticky on the palate in the finish, allowing the flavors to linger.

O: A lot of words circulating in my noggin as I type this conclusion—delicious, complex, wonderful... Evolution have a dead-ringer here for a top-of-the-line IPA. While not as blatantly incredible as some of the bigger names, this holds its own with relative ease.

4.01/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Either bottled on or best by May 2014.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Tree House tulip.

a; nearly clear amber with an inch tall whote head which receded slowly to dense surface foam and lacing.

s: Orange.

t; Citrusy bitter hops up front over a medium bready malt base. Bitterness hangs on the sides of the tongue. Bitterish to tart finish.

m: Medium with great body and smooth oiliness. Very nice.

o: An exceptional IPA, a fine junior partner of their double, No. 6.
