it is an IPA and I do not care for them. I needed the Evo beer bottle cap for a project, this is the beer that I selected. if you are into IPAs this is probably an excellent beer.

The beer comes in a light amber color, good clarity with a bit of heavy, with a fluffy off white head.

The aroma offers sweet tropical fruits, dried mango, orange slices, nectarine, bready sweetness.

The flavor a medium malty sweet flavor up front, along with resin, pine, some grainy malts, onto a truly lingering resiny and evergreen minty pine bitterness and aftertaste. Upfront offers sweet grapefruit bitterness, orange, and a bit more mango, but dominated by that bitterness and the malt.

Pour is golden orange and transparent with a white fairly bubbly head. The nose is fairly balanced with malt and hop. Sticky caramel and light dough with citrus orange hop behind. Taste is much more malt forward, caramel, stale grain and dough. Hops are fairly citrusy and brings a light bitterness through a lightly carbonated finish. Body is fairly full and creamy.

The initial taste is sweet but it finishes with a strong bitter taste that lingers. I'd say it also has a stronger malt taste than other double IPAs I've had. However,the 8.5% is hidden well.

The color is pretty and opaque.

Solid double IPA and I can take my time to enjoy it. This beer was a gift so I don't have any info on price.

Pours an organish copper color with a two finger head and great fingers of lacing all over the glass. A great looking beer. The aroma is of greatfruit hops with earthy hops presen also. The taste is a caramel malt backbone with grapfruit hops, earthy hops and citrus present. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation. The drinkability is good with the alcohol well hidden and the beer being an easy drink. Overall its a solid beer but in a crowded dipa market it is close to the top but not top of class and needs to do more to distinquish itself.

served from the tap in a 10 oz glass.

appears a copper color with bright white head. big pine and earthy hop aroma. taste has just a touch of biscuity malt, but is over powered by resiny hop flavor. the hop flavor is okay, but could be better, doesn't seem to jive with the malt. average body and carbonation level.

Grapefruit and citrus rind dominate the taste. Taste is bitter, dry, and slightly oily. An above average imperial IPA, but I have had way better in the style. Would not turn down this beer, nor rush out to get it.
