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.

Fine beer. Buy the 6.

a - Pours a dark orange copper color with an inch of white head w moderate lace.

s - Smells of citrus hops, tropical fruits, citrus, fruity malts. Ample fresh hops and fruit. A little dank and pungent.

t - Follows smell of citrus hops, grapefruit, pine hops, tropical fruits, fruity malts. Complex fruit punch. Too Fruity?

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation, with a bit of bitterness.

buy 6. It all comes together.

Pretty good dipa. Pours a lot darker than expected. Then a lot hoppier flavor than anticipated with the dark color. Not much nose, but the hop flavor is pretty good. Citrus, melon, andmaybe a touch of pine. Strong bitterness on the finish.

Great initial burst of strong, balanced hops and notable sweetness. All flavors carry through nicely for a lingering and pleasantly bitter finish.
