3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a nice double IPA that poured very thick and laced the glass well on every sip. The color was a deep copper and the aroma was of acidity and hops. The taste was sweet and a good blend of hop flavors.

On tap at Stateline during the HopHead Tasting... Pours a glowing orange.. decent head. Good aroma of piney notes and fruity citrus. Taste is great... Piney, grassy, fruity but well balanced. Not a trace of the high alcohol content. Easy to drink, smooth. Good DIPA, that I wish they bottled.

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.

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!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft - Max’s. Dark orange, creamy white head. Juicy tropical fruit and florals warms to swirls of dry pine and sweet peachy caramel. Bright and fresh citric-spruce hop flavors are well rounded with a lightly toasted sweet malt backbone. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, bitter finish. Though from Delaware, this screams Southern California style. Well done...

On tap @ Lures, Crownsville Md-Clear golden color w/no head. Flavors of grapefruit & hops. Had some citrus as well w/some lingering sweetness. Good malt balance make this one drinkable for me, not a hop bomb. Good solid IPA, alcohol was well hidden.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty decent IPA with a good balance and mild bitterness. The hops come through on both the flavor and the aroma well, without being too assertive. A drinkable IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Frisco Grille, Columbia: Pours a transparent deep golden bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh abundant resiny grapefruity hops with some pale malty sweetness underneath. Starts with good fullness and a nice light caramely sweetness with lots of assertive citrusy bittering and flavor hops before a drier, crisp bittersweet finish. Very flavorful, yet well balanced and quite hoppy hiding its alcohol well.
