Notched bottling date of Jan '16.

Appearance - Pours hazy and golden in color with an off-white, near 2 finger width head. Good retention, then dissipates to a thin, broken layer of surface suds. Strong lacing on display, with big clingy sheets, broken lines and spots making up the pattern.

Smell - Notes of citrus with a touch of spice and pine. Sweet, bready undertone.

Taste - Follows the nose. Citrusy character hitting on sweet orange and a bit of grapefruit. Light spice and pine sit beneath. The malt backbone is evident, with bready flavor and just a touch of caramel. Finishes with faint citrus and pine notes.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with moderate, tingly carbonation. Slick, silky texture makes this an easy drinker before a mostly dry finish.

Overall - Good Double. Extremely drinkable. The one knocked I'd say is that it doesn't challenge the taste buds - it's good, but kind of an oversimplified profile for the style. Good sippin' beer for a Sunday afternoon watching football, but nothing that's gonna wow you with a flavorful punch.

Dark orange and hazy with 1 finger head. Smell is very tropical and hearty. Tasty is nice and very well balanced with sweet, bready, hoppy, citrusy and a touch bitter at end but not lingering at all. For a double, body is lighter and a little thinner than usual. A very finely made double IPA. Enjoyed this one.

Poured into a small shaker pint glass. Pours a medium to dark coppery amber with a two finger off-white head with great retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of mildly biscuit and bready malt, citrus and piney hops and tropical fruit. Flavor is biscuit malt with light caramel, citrus and piney hops, light stone fruit, lemon and orange citrus, nice piney and resinous finish with lingering hops. Medium bodied with a nice creaminess. A very nicely made IIPA with great hop flavors and good malt support although the malt flavor stays in the background. Great lingering hops flavors and bitterness. One of the best IPAs I had on this East Coast trip. From notes on my August, 2015 trip to Delaware.

Hoppy without being overly bitter (?), is such a thing possible? Dark amber with rich creamy head, hops, malt and chocolate(?) on the nose, malt first then hops in the taste. Malt on the finish, with some hops dragging it out.

Had at the brewery. My favorite of the beers I tried from Evo.

Hazy golden, orange, brownish color. Smells of hops and malt. Big and flavorful, well balanced with plenty of hops and delicious maltiness. Medium bodied. Very enjoyable.
