Thanks again to mymrnngjckt for this 2nd of 4 Evolution brews.
Pours a clear copper color with two fingers of light tan head. Head settles to a full, thin lace, with some pretty good webbing on the sides as well.
Smell is very fresh and hoppy, with lots of grapefruit and orange, plus some pine resin as well. It's juicy and very floral; really nice. Some bready malt and a bit of caramel are here too.
Taste also has a nice level of hoppiness although the nose was a bit better. Good amount of citrus and pine, more pine than the nose actually, plus some herbal hop flavor, as well. There is some light caramel sweetness and a bready malt body. Hop bitterness is on the low side for an IPA.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a nice oily creaminess to it. It's smooth and a touch dry in the finish.
This is a very nice IPA, and a surprise to be honest after the very mediocre Primal Pale Ale. This is a quality IPA, hop forward but not over the top. Lots of hop flavor even though there isn't much bitterness. Well done.

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.
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.
