Hadn't heard of this Brewer or their DIPA, but came it highly recommended. Had a pint on tap at Lures in Annapolis, MD. (they have an excellent selection of beer on tap) This beer really showed well. First sip and knew it was a winner. Complex taste, good finish all the attributes of a first rate IPA. Can’t wait to find it again.

Sour hop nose reminiscent of a lambic beer. Strong hop flavor with a hint of oregano on the finish. Hearty flavor that lingers on the palette.

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.

Bottled January 28, 2015

pours murky dark orange, one finger head and quite a bit of fine floaties.

Big whiff of grapefruit in the nose and strong. Some lemon too but this is very citrus smelling. some breast malt profile is there too.

Taste follows with hit of citrus hops with generous amount of bitterness but not off-putting. Reminds me a bit of victory dirtwolf. Hops back off some and some cracker malt balances it some. Some candy sugar sweetness and then piney hops thrown in for good measure.

Medium body and medium carb. Sticky and leaves a coating in the mouth. Light bitter aftertaste.

Very well made DIPA. reminiscent of dirtwolf but this has a little bit more bitterness but also note sweetness to balance it out. A little heavier and not as much drinkability though. I'm glad I went for this on my local distributors recommendation.

This beer absolutely nails the style for me. Outstanding fresh, bright hoppy flavor. Perfect mouthfeel and finish. May be the best DIPA I've ever had (and I've had many).
