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

I've had this from tap at the brewery and in bottles, but I'm currently enjoying the bottled version.

Heavily bubbled, strong, frothy, white head. Cap remains throughout the pint and lacing is strong and thick. Light copper, clear but with a tiny amount of haze.

Smell is by no means dank or overly resinous, just a clean hop aroma and some maltiness backed by some esters. The Citra really comes through on the nose.

Malty sweet and caramely. Strong, but not puckering, bitterness with some heavy handed hop flavors. I have a problem with most IIPAs. They tend to be either way too sweet or way too hoppy. Lot 6 hits the nail dead on the head. Super balanced with a clean yeast flavor.

Not quite a thick mouthfeel but this is medium to even full bodied. Perfectly carb'd and easy to drink. It's hard for me not to give this a pefect score. It's one of the few IPAs/IIPAs that I actually like.

Today, I'm looking at Evolution Craft Brewing Company Lot # 6
Imperial IPA. Hands down one of the most well balanced and underrated imperial IPAs out there. This impressive IPA clock in at 8.5% ABV and at 75IBUs. The color is orangish-yellow with a off-white head. The aroma is bursting with a wallop of personality. Tons of pungent grapefruit, lemongrass, candied orange, pine and a hint of earthy tea.
On the first sip, the palate is so well balanced. Ton of bitter grapefruit, lemongrass and pine. Eventually the sweet candied orange malt flavor blankets the fresh resinous hop assassination on the tongue and balances out the beer. The dry bitterness is clean, spicy and long lasting.
This beer by far is one of my go to IPAs and it has been one of my favorite IPAs for years. With the right marketing, this beer could stand up against the Plinys and Headys and find itself on an elite list of Must Try IPAs.

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

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).

A-good amber with a thin white head.

S-wow tropical grapefruit!! Amazing! Strong scent

T-comes in with a wonderful creamy taste of grains, fresh hops, and grapefruit. A good amount of bitterness too. The after-taste is matching and awesome. This great and sweet.

M-medium carbonation with a dry finish

O-This is actually an amazing ipa. I love any ipa that can get this much of a grapefruit flavor. I recommend this to anyone!

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

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