2.13/5 rDev -36.4%
I know that I am supposed to be divesting myself of bottles, not buying new ones, but I needed to round out a mixed six and I had never had it before.
My aggro pour produced two fingers of fizzy, off-white head with limited retention, quickly falling to wisps. Color was a cloudy Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 - 5). Nose had an interesting lemon-pineapple citrusiness. Mouthfeel was somewhat thin, not quite watery. The taste was oddly bitter, slightly sour, kind of citrus fruity. Finish was sort of tart and bitter, still citrusy, but just not quite right, especially for the style. I would have said that it was old, but I just bought it today. The numbers on the bottle read: "1413076142254" so I may follow up to see if there was a problem with the batch.

Evolution's summer session has a clear golden body with about two fingers of white head that lays down a decent amount of lacing while exhibiting some good retention.
The aroma is very grainy with a hints of hops to it. Slightly musty.
The musty flavor runs the show here, choking out most other things. It isn't a pleasant kind of musty like you might find in a saison either, it's just an off-flavor. After that comes a slight citrus hop bite and a lot of grain. APA? I don't think so, but who knows.
Fairly thick body, with a moderate to low amount of carbonation.
I'm not a fan of this one, that musty flavor ruins the beer; I almost couldn't finish my pint.

Good carbonation and a light body. Pilsner-like finish. Nothing amazing. drinkable. prefer some of their other offerings. However looking forward to trying on tap in DC soon. smell isn't that appealing. Appearance is a dark straw color with nice streams of bubbles throughout the drinking.
