Let me start by saying I really like Evo in general. And this rating is probably skewed slightly considering lot 3 is one of my go to beers. Just ended up being a mediocre pale ale.

Hazy orange body with a small, lasting, off-white cap. Malty aroma with distant floral hops and a note of citrus. Malty body with minimal bitterness. Decent, but not my thing.

on draft, in a shaker pint glass.

clear, yellowish golden in color - white head that fades. mild earthy hop aroma. not enough malt flavor or hop flavor - either way to stand out. thinner bodied.
