Evil Genius Blind Eye PA

Posted: June 9, 2012 in Belgian Style Pale Ale, Evil Genius Beer Company, Reviews

After two brews at Monk’s, it was time to hit the street and find another bar. This section of Philly happened to be one that I was very familiar with. So, Katie and I walked a few blocks to Misconduct Tavern. I’ve been to Misconduct a few times before and it’s a pretty chill bar that always has something good on tap. Evil Genius is a Pennsylvania brewery that seemed to be all over beer week. So, I figured, why not try one of them?

ABV: 7.2%

Style: Belgian Style Pale Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Love Belgian Beers? Love Hops? Then this is the beer for you. A burst of citrus aromas and flavors meld themselves with that distinct Belgian flavor.”

Random: This beer isn’t even on BeerAdvocate yet.

This poured with a half finger of white head that dissipated quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy orange color with moderate, visible carbonation. The nose had Belgian yeast with some hops, pretty much exactly what the brewery advertised. The taste was definitely more towards the Belgian side and was teeming with Belgian yeast with the hops taking a backseat. I also got some golden fruit on the taste. The body was medium thickness with moderate carbonation. The finish was lengthy with the same Belgian yeast that was apparently from the nose through the taste. This was a pretty nice brew, although I thought it needed a touch more of a hop presence on it. I would definitely have this one again. It’s worth searching out.
