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.

12oz. bottle poured into pint glass.

A: Orangey-gold hue with a two-finger cream colored head that eventually fades to about an 1/8" - 1/4", leaving behind an absolute blanket of lace down the glass. Gorgeous... Although the hue of the beer is a little lighter than I was expecting, but it's not enough to deduct points.

S: Tons of citrus fruit. Grapefruit, hints of orange rind. A little bit of mango thrown into the array of scents. A little bit of floralness (is that a word?) underneath the citrus. Some pine and grassiness. A light touch of alcohol spice, which wasn't unexpected in a DIPA. Complex and lovely, but not as intense as I was hoping.

T: Not for the faint of heart... Tons of hop bitterness and in-your-face citrus. A little bit of pine following suit, with a nice flowery finish. Lots of hop bitterness lingers afterwards with some boozy heat.

M: Tons of heat from the booze, but it's never overpowering. A controlled carbonation is above average, I'd say, and definitely close to a full body. Slick across the palate. Drinks easily, but definitely not sessionable. This is a sipper, no doubt.

O: Lot No. 6 is another brew that makes me feel like I'm scoring too high, but every time I revisit a category to try and "correct" the rating, I'm reminded of why I scored it so highly in the first place. It's not the most unique brew I've ever had, but it's simply just... effin' great! A lovely beer to kick back with after a long day of housework.

Honey colored with one finger of frothy ecru foam,splotchy lacing in the tulip.

Aroma is all about the hops, mostly piney with some grapefruit zest in there too.

Taste is also hop forward, malt present but mostly for balance. Nice citrus/pine flavors, solid lingering bitterness of the desirable variety.

Mouthfeel medium, crisp carbonation.

Solid IIPA all the way, heard good things about Evolution brewing Lot No6 delivers the goods, highly recommend for those that appreciate hop forward ales.
