Evolution Lot #3 IPA

The Brewery: Evolution Craft Brewing Company, a brewery complete with a restaurant and packed tasting room outside of Salisbury, Maryland

The Beer: Lot #3 IPA

Tasting Notes: This hoppy beer might lean towards the more bitter part of the scales for an American IPA, but it's all about balance in this brew. A strong carmel backbone prevents the Lot #3 from becoming too aggressive. It's the kind of IPA you could find yourself drinking back-to-back without tiring your tongue — and a standout, even in a region that gave birth to one of the most well-known (and worthy) IPAs in the U.S., Dogfish Head's 60 Minute IPA.
