12oz bottle, wine glass, bottled 1/11/21.

Dark orange with yeasties and a small sticky off white head.

Heavy orange oil, sharp citrus, and not much else.

The flavor is more of the same. Layers of orange, tangerine, and citrus peel. Medium-high bitterness that’s gritty. There’s some caramel in there too.

The mouthfeel is where this beer shines. It’s got that full, drying, bitter, alcoholic feel that makes American IPAs what they are.

I’m disappointed the 12 pack didn’t have any freshness info on the outside. Solid bones as a double IPA.

Pours a mildly hazy amber with a big white head. Pine and hops in the nose. A sweet tasting DIPA with caramel at the front then counterbalanced with the pine, resin hops which brings in some citrus and bitterness like grapefruit.

I knew at this high ABV this would be great and it was. Hard to find and I hope to come across this again. My wife also enjoyed the amazing flavor and she is hard to please.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours orange red with a small white head. Smells of citrus hops and sweet malt. Tastes of grassy and citrus hops with nice grain backbone. Beer is medium bodied yet still easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a very good beer.

Hazy amber/orange appearance with an average size, off white head and a fair amount of lacing. Straight up hop aroma of tropical fruit and a bit of resin. Taste dominated by the piney, fruity hops. The modest sweetness provided by the caramel malts only make a minor dent. Alcohol becomes more pronounced in the aftertaste. Full bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel leading to a lingering finish.

A beautiful beer poured into a clear glass mug. Not much to smell here, but what a nice taste. This has a great hop/malt balance and a profound hoppy aftertaste. The high ABV is noticable, but not offsetting.

Amber orange in color with a white head and a slightly cloudy appearance. Malty and citric nose that harken back to those earlier days IPAs. Malt forward flavor follows the scent with some sweetness and general citrus undertones. Mild bitterness with a bready malt flavor sitting on the palate. Ok carbonation and a medium thick feel This is pretty good in a change of pace from the usual juicy hop bomb IPA’s I normally go for.

Reviewed from a 12 oz bottle bought in Northern VA.

L - Burnished gold to light amber in color, crystal clear. Dense, rocky, persistent head is off-white. A gorgeous beer.

S - Fresh aromatic hops impression: herbal, lightly citrus and lightly tropical. Underneath the hops there are strong malt aromas of bread and biscuit.

T - Well-balanced flavors between malt and hops, with the emphasis maybe just slightly onto malt. The malt is bready and sweet. The hops are an equal blend of tropical, citrus and herbal flavors.

F - Medium body verging on heavy. Creamy, moderate carbonation. Medium to strong hops bitterness. Deceptively light alcohol presence.

O - This is fresh-tasting DIPA that leans a bit more toward the malt balance than most. I'm OK with that.

Pours a darkish amber, big billowy head. Big caramel malt aroma. Sweet with a big malt body, this almost seems like a throwback. I used to love this type of IPA. Now I prefer the lighter bodied, happier east coast IPA's. But I still appreciate this type of beer and love it. They last a lot longer too. This one is 2 years old and tastes great!

Evolution Craft Brewing Company "Lot No 6 double i.p.a."
12 fl. oz. brown glass bottle without freshness dating (the label is not notched with a month or year)
$2.49 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: It's poured a cloudy orange body beneath a finger-thick head of creamy off-white foam. I guess that's OK, cloudy or hazy beers are "in" at the moment. The aroma is quite floral and malty sweet, but also a bit piney and earthy, which is unusual and interesting. The flavor brings in some nice fruitiness that's like apricot and apple and soft citrus, and some golden and medium caramel flavor in its biscuity malt base. Again, that's fairly unusual these days, so kudos to them for doing something different. It's clean, sweetly malty but balanced by a firm bitterness, and mostly dry in the finish with some earthiness, hop resin, delicate pine and residual almost honey-like malt lingering pleasantly. At this point the head has dropped to a partial, very thin surface covering and wide creamy collar but the lacing is quite nice. Except for the cloudiness it would score really well. In the mouth it's medium-full in body and delicately bristling and then creamy smooth with a moderate to median carbonation that seems natural. The alcohol never really shows other than a light wash in the finish although you can sense that it's there and that it's got some strength to it. Overall I'm impressed. This is probably the best beer I've had from Evolution Brewing. It's really nicely balanced, and quite unique. It's a great beer to sit down and relax with, and with spring upon us and summer coming soon I think I'll pick some of this up as an after-dinner porch beer. On the other hand, I think it would pair really well with some smoked chicken or beef fresh off the grill so maybe I'll try that as well. Certainly worth checking out!

This is a very good DIPA. Well balanced. Easy to drink. Medium body & medium hop bitterness. Would be very easy to want to drink another. The finish is dry

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Trillium IPA glass.

Look is a slightly hazy amber with an off white head.

Aroma is resin hops and sweet molasses malt.

Definitely an old school double ipa with a lot of malt and an intense bitter resin flavor.
