3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: On tap at Fireworks. It pours a deep gold color with a small, off-white head. The nose is lighter than expected with lots of herbal hop notes. The flavor has a good bit of sweetness with lots of herbals. It’s medium bodied with higher carbonation leading to a sweet then dry finish. Rather tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler shared by sloth, poured a full orangey amber color with a white-ish colored head, a large one at that. The aroma was piney resinous hops with some citrus too. The flavor followed, citrus the feature with orangey notes, some pine resin, and a caramel-like sweetness underneath. Lively hop zing, decent stuff. The mouthfeel was moderate to full for the style and far from syrupy or sticky - a nice job by EVB.

Tons of crystal malt in the backbone. Aggressive hop presence in the mouth. Well defined apples and oranges in the nose with some malty sweetness. Very well balanced. Big bitterness in the mouth through the finish. Heavy and balanced. Malt accented, very enjoyable IIPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Medium sized offwhite head, good retention with some spotty lacing. Clear gold color. Nicely resiny nose, bubblegum, pine and citrus, juicey and inviting. Almost medium bodied, resiny with a soft carbonation. Citrusy, resiny hop flavors with notes of peach some tangerine and a little sweet malts hangin around. Finish is lightly sweet but packin a nice hop bitterness. Maybe just a hint to sweet but otherwise proably the best DIPA coming outta Delaware right now, at least from my expierences as of late. Nice west coast style DIPA. Growler supplied by my friend and fellow beer drinker ZuBru. Thanks ken!

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.
