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.

ryanscourt (972) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2013
12 oz pour in snifter. Smells like hops, taste like hops, taste bud explosion. Very citrus at first on the nose and in the mouth and balanced nicely. Very hoppy with grapefruit, apricot. It seemed to mellow out a little bit and more bitter. Fairly enjoyable and took almost an hour to drink. Really a lot going on and pretty neat. Alcohol started to shine through by the end.

reggiedunlop (3475) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Pours a clear bright gold with a creamy medium white head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma has nice stonefruits and mild citrus and herbal notes. Flavor is more herbal and earthy/bitter...resinous with light pine. Mouthfeel is medium and sticky with a bitter resinous finish.

zizzybalubba (1628) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2013
On tap at Y-not in Chesapeake, VA (enjoy by 02-15-13). Dark orange pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit rind and pineapple. Flavor is a little sweeter than the aroma would lead you to believe with light caramel that combines with bitter floral and grapefruit hops. Finish is clean yet there is a lingering bitterness. You could not ask for much more from a DIPA than what this offers. Outstanding.

Draft. Medium off-white head with clear amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some pineapple/pine, light catty. Taste is moderately sweet, juicy, pine/pineapple, some grapefruit, catty. Medium body, some resin, quite drinkable. Alcohol very well masked.

ChazMania (659) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Utterly amazing. I’ve had 3 of the 4 releases of this and the latest 2-15-13 is fantastic. I’ve had 4 bombers and 2 growlers of this stuff. One of my all time favorite beers for sure. Huge dank aroma, totally clear dark yellow/taste is very floral with resin/pine. Bitter finish to the core and just oh so inviting. I love this beer!

Kinz (3527) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 Richmond 19th, Enjoy by 2/15/13 batch. Light orange, aroma is shockingly almost exactly like tomato vine. Flavor is green hop, just a blast of it. Bitter finish. Quite unique. Definitely memorable, a standout in the tasting. RERATE - Just had the 2/14/14 version - I think even better. Aroma was pure fruit hops this time around, just a load of grapefruit and tangerine. Flavor matched, a fantastic hop showcase. Notched up about .4. RERATE: 7/4/14 version from growler from The Wink. Felt like this was a touch sweeter, and the hops more floral and earthy, with citrus present but more balanced. Good brew, but not quite the same. Holding on to old score in hopes that it rebounds but would have come down by about .4 again.

timfoolery (1125) - California, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle of 2-15-13 from the coop. Aroma was amazing in the first five seconds...almost like the Younger. Took a drink...it was awesome, then it took an absolute nose dive towards bitter. Signature bitter Stone hops washed over this one like a tidal wave. Came back a little, but I'm not that impressed. I liked Simtra better, and the Elder blows it away. Uh, buh-bye. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Gasoline, lots of pine, and melons on the nose. Really hot straight out of the bottle, needed to warm up a bit and once it did it became a hop lovers dream. This is an outstanding double IPA!

Nate (3827) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2013
On tap at Smokin’ Joe’s. Enjoy by 2-15-13. Terrific fresh hop aromas. Grass, pine, bitter citrus peel, apricot … heavenly. Very funky with ozone and bong water. Deep amber clear with foamy white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts lightly sweet, funky with grass, resin, ozone, and rubber. Potent hop character throughout, with burnt brown sugar and creme brûlée sweet finish. Fairly smooth bitter after, very tasty.
