I’ve been following Two Beers Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor) almost since they first opened and I think the first beer I ever had from them was their flagship EVO (Evolutionary) IPA. Loaded with Simcoe (one of my favorites), Amarillo and Centennial hops from the Yakima Valley, then dry-hopped with more Simcoe and Columbus, EVO is still a solid IPA.
However, ever since Two Beers came out with more IPAs like their Wonderland Trail Double IPA, Mango Passionfruit IPA and new The Other Coast Hazy IPA, EVO doesn’t get quite as much attention as it used to. Two Beers has noticed this so they’ve decided to shake things up a bit and turn EVO into an IPA that will be constantly changing throughout 2018, utilizing new, experimental hop varieties from Yakima Valley. It seems quite fitting that a beer named ‘evolutionary’ is now evolving.
Here is the full press release from Two Beers Brewing Company:
SEATTLE, WA– Two Beers Brewing Co. is excited to announce that they are reformulating one of their flagship beers, EVO IPA, with exciting new elements throughout 2018. Regularly evolving, the EVO IPA Rotator Series starts with EVO’s classic IPA recipe and features adventurous ingredients playing on the timeless EVO recipe.
First up in the Rotator Series is an Experimental Hop EVO IPA (6.2% ABV, 70 IBUs) featuring two never-before featured hops grown in locally in Yakima Valley. With notes of citrus and peachy stone fruit, along with coconut, lemongrass, and wood, the drinking experience is exceptionally distinct and pleasant. Additionally, the new recipes for each of the Rotator Series come with sleek new packaging, for an overall fresh take on the long-standing fan favorite.
“EVO IPA is a classic Pacific Northwest style IPA, so brewing EVO with experimental hops from Yakima was the perfect first step for kicking off the new Rotator Series,” said Joel VandenBrink, Founder and CEO of Two Beers Brewing Co. “We’ve been busy working on innovations for some time now, so it’s exciting to finally share them outside of the brewery and tasting room.”
Starting March 5, EVO Rotator Experimental Hop will be available in The Woods Tasting Room (4660 Ohio Ave S. Seattle, WA) on draft and in package. Soon after, the EVO Rotator Series will make its way through Washington and Oregon where Two Beers Brewing Co. products are sold.
