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.

Tap at Cheeky Monk GABF 2012. Malt liquor for hop addicts. Kept going back and forth with each sip if it was hoppy malt liquor or ABV forward DIPA.

bmerz (719) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2014 04-20-14 - Bottle drank 3/21. Pours a darker orange with a 2 finger rocky head dense head in an IPA glass. Aroma is floral honey, caramel, tropical fruit, orange, spice, resin. Flavor is sweet grapefruit juice at first then goes bracingly bitter with spicy alcohol, pine, resin, wood, and pith. After an initial liveliness, the feel is fairly watery and metallic bitter from middle to end. I’m not very it this for some reason this time of round. I don’t remember the metallic notes nor it being so aggressive. 09-13-13. Bumped it up. This thing is getting better or really growing on me. 11-09-12 - Draught. Wow. Really interesting hop character throughout. Aroma is pineapple, pine, and floral. flavor is honey, citrus and grapefruit juice, fairly sweet but very cleanly bitter with strong herbs. Fairly standard looking and feeling. Everything us cleanly expressed. I love it.

Draft. 12.21.12 version . Amber brown color. Smells and tastes extremely hoppy with a bitter funky and aggressive aftertaste. Wow ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Patrickctenchi (4390) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 7, 2012
12-21-12 Batch: Poured clear, deep honey-amber with a large, nearly white head. Nose is strong grapefruit, pine.... Flavour is heavy-sweet citrus on a bed of grapefruit peel/pine/herbal hops. Amazingly sweet for what it is.....almost sticky....yet still crisp and bright without being too cloying.... Excellent!

This was awesome. Heavy resin notes, citrus as well. Kinda like getting punched in the mouth by a hop vine.

The 12-21-12 version. Clear golden pour with a healthy, creamy off white head and appropriate lacing. Nose is a nice clean hop profile: grapefruit, pine resin, passion fruit, mango, dankness, with some toasted honey biscuit malt way underneath. Pleasantly big bitter flavor with some sweetness to accompany. Lighter side of medium bodied, creamy yet prickly, bright bitterness that dries out the finish. Showcases the freshness very nicely. Hopefully this series does its part to help advance the cause on the proper dating and storage of super-hoppy brews.

dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - DEC 6, 2012
golden crystal clear pour, fair amount of carbonation coming up from the bottom of my snifter. I could smell the aroma as soon as i popped the cap off, strong citrus and tropical fruits, pineapples, mango, papaya, orange, tangerine it’s just amazing i could smell this all day! the taste is very smooth with all kinds of tropical goodness happening, citrus up front also picking up pineapple and mango, its really not all that bitter and the alcohol is hidden well, the body is thin to medium which works well for this and makes it very easy to drink, wow wow wow wow wow
