No enjoy by date. Poured into ale glass.

A-Poured a foamy dense white head that receded slowly back to the clear copper body.

S-Grapefruit, mango and hop resin dominate and mix together awesomely in the nose.

T-Citrus forward beer. Hop resin and bitterness in the finish. Delicious throughout. A nice malt base balances out the hops and adds a sweetness to the finish.

M-Medium mouthfeel with a sweet finish. Lower carbonation than I would like.

O-I love this beer. Both the taste and smell go hand in hand with one another and make for a highly drinkable and enjoyable imperial IPA.

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

A shout out to griffeyb for the AWESOME box he sent with this being one of the bottles in it!

Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a tulip glass.

A- It pours a deep hazy orange with beautiful lacing sticking from the top of the glass and trailing all the way down.

S- Huge pine and citrus notes. Exactly what I would expect from the style.

T- A rush of hops dominate the first contact with the palate followed by a slightly mellowed sweet after taste. Very nice balance overall.

M- A good amount of carbonation that produces a pleasant tingle with the body to match.

O- A very very good imperial IPA. I feel like I could drink an entire six pack over a crawfish boil even at an ABV of 8.5%. One of the beast I have had.

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.

Growler from the brewery in Salisbury, MD. Into my Beer Geek Nation tulip glass.

Appearance (4.5/5): Clear, copper, lots of soapy off-white lacing on the glass. Looks like a textbook double IPA.

Smell (4.5/5): Massive dankness and tropical fruit notes of pineapple, mango, and grapefruit. This recipe is almost certainly drawing on some of the newer school hops to generate this thoroughly modern IPA aroma that leans heavily towards the tropical side, as opposed to the piney, highly bitter end of the hop spectrum that most old school IPAs would tap in to. Very impressive.

Taste (4.75/5): The hops are very juicy in the foretaste, with plenty of sweet, fruity grapefruit and pineapple notes. The massive hops are fairly well balanced by the sweet, yet dry malt backbone, which helps accentuate the hops and make them pop. The beer dries out nicely in the finish to a grapefruit pith-like flavor that is all bitterness. Lot 6 achieves an impressive complexity through it's seamless transition from flavor to flavor. This is a classic Double IPA being enjoyed the way it was meant to be--super fresh, straight from the brewery's tap.

Mouthfeel (4/5): Smooth initially, though the beer is exceptionally dry in the aftertaste. The carbonation is at a very nice medium level. It has kept well in the growler so far.

Overall (4.5/5): Evolution has really hit on a special recipe, one that offers an excellent amount of complexity. While this beer is all about the hops, the different hop varieties do a great job of bringing different flavors and feels to the beer on its way across the tongue. An outstanding beer that hop heads will love.

Had on tap the Pickled Pig Pub for Delaware Beer Week.

A: Was served in a goblet. Lot 6 is golden yellow in color, with a very white one finger head. Nice retention and left some sticky lacing down the sides.

S: Lots of tropical fruits, some grapefruit, pineapple, and mango. There is a little bit of pine, and really not much malt in the aroma. Slight hints of alcohol.

T: Over the top hop flavors. More citrus, with mostly grapefruit and some pineapple as well as a very nice grassy flavor. The hops are quite sharp and impart a good amount of bitterness. It is cut slightly by some bready malt on the backend.

M: Medium to full bodied, with a little bit of a alcohol, but not detrimental to the beer at all. Very crisp.

O: One of my favorite Evolution beers, too bad it is only on tap as of now, hopefully they will bottle it at some point. Have also had it Randallized with mint and grapefruit juice which was a nice touch to this beer as well.

Lovely DIPA, bottle from Capone’s. Orange bodied with some retained head. Smooth, above average and relatively smooth mouthfeel(though a little grapefruit acid in finish). Rich, complex, lots of fruit: apricot, mango, orange. Very hoppy aroma. A well crafted DIPA.
