COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You have in your hands a devastatingly fresh double IPA. While freshness is a key component of many beers- especially big, citrusy, floral IPAs- we’ve taken it further, a lot further, in this IPA. You see, we specifically brewed it NOT to last. We’ve not only gone to extensive lengths to ensure that you’re getting this beer in your hands within an extraordinarily short window, we made sure that the Enjoy By date isn’t randomly etched in tiny text somewhere on the bottle, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and beer fans. Instead, we’ve sent a clear message with the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.

Snifter on tap. Batch 07-04-14. Pours amber-orange, nice head, nice lacing. Aroma is very floral and citrus, notably lemon zest, grapefruit. Taste is a wallop of hop bitterness. Medium body, medium carbonation, slightly oily from the hops. Finishes very floral and citrusy with hints of orange, grapefruit, lemon. Alcohol is noticeable but not a distraction. This is a fine beer and will search this one out again!

Modest white head, golden color. Malty hop aroma. Taste is citrus and one can tell fresh hops were used in this brew. Finish is crisp with a slight grassy taste. A well done IPA.

Foxbush (1268) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 14, 2014
22 oz bottle from Trader Joe’s This is the 07-04-2014 The ale poured a clear amber with a frothy white head and lacing. The Citrus aroma greets you immediately. Grapefruit dominates the taste, aroma and finish. There is also a touch of resin in the taste and at the finish. The light body ale had average to soft carbonation. The finish is full of citrus with hop bitterness that closes out this excellent IPA.

This beer is superb in all aspects. Can’t get enough of it. Paid $14 for a pint at Downtown Bar and restaurant in San Juan Puerto Rico, but it was worth it.

TheHopster (794) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2014
(Enjoy by 07.04.14) Consumed within two weeks of the "bottled on" date. Impressive for a NJ suburb considering the distance. The aroma was not a strong as anticipated. Like a mild pine breeze. The golden appearance is extremely clear (anticipated less filtering) but contains a thick persistent white head. The flavor is actually a very smooth. There is no missing the piney hops, but there is some sweetness for balance. Slight note of alcohol. Finishes slightly bitter. Very well crafted and great concept.

acearl (386) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2014
7.4.14 clear golden pour with creamy white head, good lacing, smell tropical hops, passionfruit, somewhat sweet, medium body, very light carbonation, smooth, alcohol is pretty well hidden, tropical juice\punch but not over done and not too sweet, mild bitter lingering aftertaste that is a slight hinderance to this being great could be described as peppery which contradicts the the Hawaiian Punch, but overall very nice, definitely worth...
