Mayflower Evolupulin Double IPA.

8% abv. 51 IBUs. This is meant to be a changing series of beers with different hop profiles. This batch was born on 5/19/16 and I think it is the first recipe. A QR code on the can lets you check the hop profile for each beer. Or you could just search for it on the site since no one uses QR codes. This one was made with Columbus, Equinox, and Galaxy hops with 100% German Pilsner malt.

A pleasant and surprisingly subtle aroma with lemony citrus, fresh cut grass, and herbs with a touch of sweet, clean malt. First sip is lemon, pine, and grapefruit hops flavors with tropical fruit and dry cracker. Alcohol is masked extremely well, making this a dangerous one! Hop tingle all over the gums and tongue, gets a touch drier toward the finish. Alcohol finally reveals itself with the slightest warming in the belly with the last sip.

A tasty beer, but the price point is way too high for me to purchase it again.  I know that good beer isn’t cheap, but I paid $16 for the six pack!
