4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a very good beer, I am not normally a fan of IPAs, but this is very smooth and flavorful. Definitely worth trying, just be careful, it is about 9% ABV so it doesn’t take many to feel the effects.

Draft at Two stones Newark. Pours light orange with a thin white head. Grapefruit notes on the nose. I get a bit of sweet malt on the tongue along with some grapefruit notes. Taste lingers a bit. Eh! Kind of one note!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the brewery as a taster and then in a growler. The beer pours an amber and has a strong hops taste. The beer is a strong beer and is your classic Double IPA.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2013 Draft at 2sP,snifter..great copper color..slight head that remains after each swirl of the snifter..aroma is pine dominant with citrus undertones..wow is that a solid nose, one of the better piney noses...great citrus undertones beneath the piney hops..tangerine goodness..very clean..mouthfeel is excellent.hops are in nice proportion with the malt..but the hops take center stage..a slight warming presence from the high abv..but it is well masked in the palate..would be happy if EVO would bottle this because in my opinion this is the finest 2ipa being made in the de/md area..Everything about this is highly enjoyable..very well done..worth seeking out..Well done evo..just saw that lot 6 will be available in 4 packs soon...4 packs have arrived..more people will get to taste this treat from evo..according to bottle they ramped down the abv just a notch to 8.5 from the 9.5 or so draft..pretty similar to draft offering..pleased that this will be in greater supply..a personal favorite..

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Craft and Capone’s. Poured hazy medium copper with off-white head. Nose was resiny piney hops, tropical fruit, caramel malt. Tasted rich, complex and hefty on the palate, with well hidden alcohol, and a front palate resiny hop flavor, plus tangerine, pineapple, black pepper, and a substantial caramel malt bill at mid-palate to balance things out nicely.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Capone’s. Pours out a darker copper color with a small off white head. Aroma is of mild fruity notes, citrus fruit, light sweet malty notes and a slight tell of alcohol. Taste is of light tropical fruits, citrus, bread, some floral notes and some alcohol dryness on the finish. Overall rather well done, but would have liked to have some more in your face hops.

This beer is delicious, had it in the tasting room at the Evo brewery in Salisbury Maryland. It was 9.8% abv perfectly balanced hop/malt ratio. Very smooth and very drinkable for the potency.
