I wanted something I had never tried and I love IPAs so I bought a variety case. I tried an Evil Eye PA.
Appearance - Weak head, little or no carbonation, cloudy.

Smell - This was the best part of the beer. Citrusy - assumed it would be a good tasting, mildly fruity IPA - wrong

Taste - 1 second of ok, and straight to dry tongue and a bad after taste. My brain did not want to believe it... so I took another swig. Now I'm thinking $45 for this. Hope the others in the variety earn their keep.

Mouthfeel - Very thin. Instant dry tongue and absolutely not carbonation present.

Overall - Poor attempt. Too bad because the Brewery name and the name of the beer are so cool that this would have been a regular if it had tasted good. At 6% I hoped it would be a not-too-big beer to add into the rotation. After three or four sips I set it down and could not finish it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

12oz bottle into pint glass

A - A Nice Orange amber, kind of hazy.
S -a bit grapefuity and overly sweet. There was also a hint of something that smelled bad.
T - Standard IPA flavors. pine, grapefruit etc.. but it wasn't as hoppy as I like.
M - Smooth, medium body and medium carbonation. Dry finish.

O - I was put off by the smell of the beer as I went to drink it. It smelled a bit like rotten vegetables. I couldnt quite put a finger on it. Strangely it didnt taste as it smelled. Mouthfeel was good and the finish was good. Imparted a nice light bitter finish.

Born on 11-06-2013. 12 oz bottle

Pours a dark, clear copper amber with a foamy off white head that has long lasting retention and thick sheets of lace. Generic nose of toasted malts, biscuit, straw. Flavor is more of an amber than IPA or APA, medium thick creamy body, sweet pale malt, dry earthy finish. Unpleasant long lasting fizzy bitterness. Forgettable.

Ouch. This is bad. Very bad. Hairspray galore with a lingering burn. Ouch, indeed. Any hop character is blown out by this off the wall flavor profile. Carbonation is way too full. Nasty stuff. First sip was okay. Everything after has been a complete disaster. Drain pour!

This brewery can't be open for much longer if they keep putting out crap like this.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Shiny copper body, excellent clarity, visible carbonation streams, topped by a thick finger of level bubbly snow white foam.

Pleasing inviting citrus -grapefruit, orange.

Brief flash of caramel sweetness is immediately overpowered by an astringent mix of bitter and cleaning solvent. Which lingers. For quite a while.

Looks great, smells good, but is quite unpleasant to taste. Back to the lab.

2.69/5  rDev -14.6%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Poured into a new belgium glass, color is copper to amber, but cloudy and very murky and dense looking. Head is nice and dense and thick, laces well. Appearance lacks that crisp and clean look from a solid fermentation.

Smell is mixed, some vegetal hops with mild malt notes in the form of biscuit. Not over sweet but not a bright citrusy or piney hop note either.

Taste is over bittered all the way at the beginning with cloying mixed malt flavors, not caramel, but some lingering sweetness and breadiness that seems to not have aged well. The malt and hop mixture is just not well balanced.

Mouthfeel is cloying from over bittered front palate and the lingering sweetness from the malt profile.

Overall, a very bland IPA, mixed flavors don't present a clear scent, taste, and mouthfeel - not to mention a cloudy presentation
