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.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Draught at Eureka Burger. Rating #44. Very clear golden pour with a white head. Nice aroma, very floral and citrusy with a little pineapple. Flavor is nice, not as good as the aroma, it’s a little too sweet for my liking, but good overall. (2474)

22oz bottle from Binny’s Lincoln Park. Pours a crystal clear, gold colored body with an inch thick, dense, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is really nice and fresh. Lots of florals and dank pines giving off plenty of grapefruit citruses and some peach aspects. Fairly earthy as well with with a light biscuity caramel malt backing. Flavor is similar. Very floral and very dank with lots of pines, earth, grapefruit citruses, and peach. Nice, lightly sweetened malt backing with touches of bread and caramel. Peach aspect picks it up a bit at the end where this finishes dry and fairly bitter, but well balanced with lots of citrus-peach and a light malt sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a cool concept and a great DIPA. Very clean, well attenuated, and balanced with plenty of hops. Highly enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2014 Pours a amber orange with a nice off white head. Aroma is of grapefruit, resiny pine, weed, some sweet malt, tropical fruit, And some caramel. Taste is is grapefruit, orange-tangerine, resiny pine, spruce, weed, some sweet malts, and some caramel. Has a medium full body with super creamy and oily mouthfeel and a somewhat dry and pretty bitter lingering finish. Overall, a very fresh and tasty DIPA.

pineypower (2516) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Thanks to Scott for sharing....Pours out a beautifully clear, darker golden color with a nice off white head. Aroma is of tropical fruits, mango, citrus, lemon and light pine with slight sweetness. Taste is complex, and hoppy, but not over the top bitter, nice tropical fruits, mango, light citrus, oily hops, coconut, resin, light papaya, and some lingering bitterness on the finish that is slightly dry, but the alcohol is very well hidden. Awesome beer and concept

Doghair (257) - Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Beautiful bright gold with a white creamy foam. Aroma is fresh citrusy hops. Clean tasting. Nice hops with a bit of sweetness in the middle. Sort of fresh juicy hoppiness. Mildly bitter finish. No noticeable alcohol even with the high ABV. Very nice double IPA. These guys did a good job on this. More beer please...

monkeychugg55 (877) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 Clear golden orange with a small, sudsy white head. The aroma is super hoppy with lots of citrus, pine, and flowers. The flavor has a very oily, resinous quality to it, with a decent amount of sweetness. The hops are the star of the show. Strong bitter finish on the end, a tad warm. This reminds of super fresh Hop Stoopid or something along those lines. Perhaps hop extract is involved? In any case, very hoppy and therefore tasty.

It has a golden yellow color ine glass. There is a peach and floral aroma that has a uniqueness to it. The lemon comes through in the taste along with some grass. Short finish.

Pours a golden color with a light, white head. The aroma is rich and full of hop florals, some grapefruit, and some grassiness. On the palate, the first sips are a bit disappointing. I didn’t find it to be nearly as hoppy as the aroma would have indicated it would be. However, a combination of some warming and some palate coating lead to a really interesting hop profile. Very spicy with some of the florals in the background. Juicy grapefruit. The malts are really nicely sweet and bready with great balance. The alcohol is also hidden incredibly well. If you told me this one was 6% I’d have no trouble believing you. Fun beer.
