COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lot #6 Double ipa: think of this as our Lot #3 on performance-enhancing malt and hops. 8.5%abv, and all kinds of tropical fruit and citrus notes. Tommy got very nervous when he saw all the hops going into this one. 18.5°

regspeir (196) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2013
From a 12-oz. bottle, this poured a cloudy, very hazy orange with a one-finger head that rapidly goes to a trace. There was a nice lacing throughout. The nose is dominated by oranges and grapefruit. Taste features a nice bite of hops up front but is quickly matched by sweet caramel malts. There is no lingering bitterness (for better or for worse). There is some pine and oily feel, but these are mild for a DIPA. Alcohol is noticeable but also mild. Moutfeel is medium and carbonation is healthy. I didn’t know this brewer or this beer but I need to pay attention from now on. This is a very nice offering and worth your attention.

hfmejias (618) - Dover, Delaware, USA - MAR 10, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured a cloudy amber with a nice white head and some serious lacing. Aroma is a nice combination of citrus fruits, piney hops and malts. Taste is bitter from hops but well balanced with malts making it very drinkable and enjoyable. This just made it to my go to beer list, it a very good beer.

boxofrane (1881) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2013

NikkTwist (1390) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Draft at Moriartys. Clear dark orange copper pour with a large foamy head that left some runny lace (at the start at least.) Strong citrus pith flavors that mostly overpower some medium red fruits. Charred tangelo peels. Apple seeds. Blood oranges. Dragonfruit. Wildflower honey. Kumquots. Molasses. Pecans. Dandilions. Apricots. Pepper. In balance quite bitter. Not a bad thing. But interesting how clearly hopped up it is without needing extra sugar to finish it (i.e. Dogfish Head 120.) Could be a challenge for non-hop heads (like myself) but I can still appreciate the work involved. This is actually the best I have had out of Evolution.

12 oz bottle - pours slightly hazy orange-gold with a hug rocky whit head. Great aromatics of citrus, orange, nugs, hoppy happiness. Taste is nice and spicy, with delicious citrus, hoppy, and resiny smooth notes. Medium palate, creamy mid, with tingly finish. Awesome new entry into my DIPA life.
