This is the quintessential IPA. Perfect citrus aroma and delicate IBU:SG balance. I drink a lot of this...

a virtually perfect ale for it's style and uniqueness. if anything, i IPAs were beginning to taste too 'similar' and i have to return to special hopped up other styles (nugget nectar still ranks among the best). my brother had mentioned Lot 3 and to get it when/if i saw it. Total Wine in northern DE had it so i nabbed a couple bottles.

beautiful apricot color with an almost reddish/rose tint...nice head dissipates fairly fast but laces in a nice way, especially as it is drunk. nose does remind me of why i love all forms of the IPA...sour citrus/menthol herbal fusion is perfectly balanced. deep and present but subdued. taste is a complete winner with a really interesting dry herbal note that fades mysteriously. mouthfeel is light creamy, not thick at all nor thin. overall, simply excellent, highly recommended...would loved to see variations of this...or maybe their own amber ale version...

Had on tap at the pickled pig in Rehoboth beach. Poured a nice two finger thick head of white and had excellent retention. Lace was sticky and quite evident throughout the entire session. Dark honey color with mild amber flecks are right on in my opinion. Loved the color. Right away the nose is full of bright citrusy hops backed by piney and somewhat grassy earthyness. The malt character is light vanilla and plenty of toasted malt and complex caramel sugars. I am loving this one already. The hop profile is great and now I'm extrememly curious to know what they used. Right about half way through as it warms up you get a bit more grapefruit than pinkness and it has a wonderful aftertaste. Silky on the tongue and has one more written All over it.

Citrusy and hoppy. Darker color IPA of its kind. Balances very well with the malt.

Bottle, not sure the bottle date but I know it is fresh because my distributor was O/S on this for over a month and finally got it in. Needless to say, Evolution is kicking ass and having trouble keeping up! Join the Club!

A-Deep Amber color with what starts off as a nice thick head but dissipates rather quickly. Leaving a thin film that laces.

S-Awesome! nice piney resiny hop smell. Like your rubbing to hop buds together in your hand, followed with some sweetness that really brings together a wonderful bouquet.

T-Resiny, piney hops are right there in the beginning. Then the maltiness comes up and mellows it out, letting this finish with a nice smooth hop linger that is not too bitter. The second sip really allows you to fully taste the Hops and their character. This beer never gets too bitter as you keep drinking it. Considering this is a fairly high abv ipa it seems a bit too easy to drink.

M-Nice carbonation, I could go with a bit less but who knows how that might effect the rest of this wonderful brew. The alcohol is well hidden...except for the very last sip where I took the last 2oz to the head, I could then and only then feel the alcohol in my mouth.

O-I have to say this is up there. Way up there. Being from the Breweries native state I might be slightly biased, but I can tell you this, it kicks DFH 60 Mins butt! I love these Guys at EVO...and if you ever get a chance to meet Todd at Evo you will quickly realize these guys are the real deal and down to earth!
