Citrus hops up front and nice big hop taste. Well balanced with the malt. Beautiful golden color with a slight orange. My favorite IPA.

An ok IPA. Double Duckpin or Wing of Armageddon are much better Mid Atlantic DIPA

It's my go to IPA. It never lets me down (provided it's fresh...check label). Always love the smells and the tastes are well balanced. It's a delightful trip for all the senses

They get the taste right, but it doesn't pack much punch or stand out in a crowded field.

Another excellent IPA from evolution brewery. I loved the citrusy bitterness. Well balanced. Nailed the style.

12 oz bottle, with brewed on dating notched onto the side of the label

Pours orangy amber, with a lite khaki cap staying nicely.

Initially malt is what comes through on the nose, as it warms a bit resiny hops mark their appearance

Rich, dense, boldly crafted DIPA (it's got balls) with more hop resins and finishing hops drying things out. Nicely done and well worth a try

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 bready 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 more 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).

Looks and smells pretty much on style. Somewhat darker than many with a amber but holds a nice dense head.
Straight up fresh and somewhat fruity hop aroma. No excess picked up initially, but some intensity nonetheless.
Good big hop sticky yet soft feel. Nice denseness in feel and taste. Hop rich and tasty hop complexity. Nice streak of pleasant bitterness finishes off the drink and lingers and then fades out nicely. Quick ding of alcohol in the pre-fontal cortex lets me know alcohol is there, but just adds softness and tinge of heat in the gut. The hints of excess are there but kept under wraps nicely. A good mix of a grainy flavor that seems both malt and hop based - sort of an earthy flavor.
Pleasing

Crisp deep hoppy flavor upfront with a malty sweetness after taste. An incredibly delicious double ipa indeed.

Pretty decent DIPA but the malty sweetness overwhelms the hops. Not very bitter at all.

One of my all time favorite DIPA's. The grapefruit/ fresh hops comes through as you bring it to your mouth.

A very good DIPA. Pours an orange/amber color.ostly clear. Medium size white head with good retention and thick lacing on the glass. Strong aroma of citrus hops (grapefruit). Taste is citrus hops and biscuity malt. Very good bitterness.

Mouthfeel is crisp and dry. Rich enough for the style. Not at all "boozy" Very drinkable for a hophead. Nice

West Coast style, prefer it on draft, however, I've ordered a bottle over rival handles.

I thought this to be a pretty acceptable Double IPA. I really liked Victory DirtWolf and thought this might be a good one to try as well. It's a little too expensive for what it offers, but all in all it's worth trying at least once.

Copper seethru body with one finger head that dies quick but leaves lace patches.
Hoppy, piney, earthy, citric note dominate the nose as this beer is all about hops.
Medium bodied, sticky, extremely dry but not harsh, a textbook hopped up American IPA as there are boatloads of earthy, piney, citric hops and just a little bit of breadiness and sweetness added for balance.
This doesn't reinvent the wheel by any stretch but fans of solid, hop-forward DIPAs that just want a relaxing beer without the bells and whistles should go for this.

The beer pours a decent bubbly head that is a bit of an off-white color. The beer itself a hazy bright orange with a lot of yeast sediment still floating about and detracts from the look. The smell has strong hop notes of orange with a hint of lemon and sweet malty backbone that mixes very well. The taste is predominantly hoppy with orange and grapefruit notes offset by the malt sweetness but not by much. The beer has a very dry finish. The beer is a bit on the heavy side with a little bit carbonation which gives it a very smooth finish. Overall, a pretty good beer by itself and I would recommend it.

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.

A wonderful IPA. Drinking a bottled one now. Hazy copper, thin head, great flavor. Very balanced, plenty of fruity hops, plenty of sweet malt. I first had this on tap in the Globe in Berlin Md. As soon as the waitress put it down, the hop aroma hit my nose. I wasn't disappointed, I'm still not. Buy it if you can find it.
