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.

On tap at The Trappist. Pours clear blonde with a rich beige head and a sharp citrus aroma. There is a hearty toffee flavor with a heavy duty bitter finish.

Tinco (581) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2012
Enjoy By 12-21-12. Pours a beautiful clear golden orang ecolor. Nice fluffy one finger head that fizzes away pretty quickly. I prefer my IPA/DIPA cloudy though... Aroma is massive citrus in the form of orange, grapfruit, danky sweetness, tropical fruits, mango, papaya. A really fresh and good smelling DIPA. Taste is very nice and hoppy. Not too bitter but very juicy. Alot of the fruitiness in the aroma u can find in the taste aswell. Some tasty caramel notes in there aswell to balance it up. This is a very good and drinkable DIPA! =)

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Trying the RB Droid app...not much head on a very floral nosed golden beer...was kinda flat overall...not much malt at all (which I kind of prefer in an iipa) and a very oily mouthfeel...very drinkable and not overly bitter.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Was on tap at Flying Saucer in Sugarland. Pours a beautiful amber copper. One of the most amazing IIPAs that has ever washed over my tongue. All sorts of citrus, cantaloupe, and orange, with pine resin, wrapped up in smooth, creamy malt, just enough that all of it balances wonderfully. A real stunner this one.

wheresyourball (528) - El Cajon, California, USA - DEC 3, 2012
22oz bottle from BevMo poured into a tall glass. Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Nose is strong - citrus, floral hops, bread. Taste is indeed fresh, citrus and strong hops. Medium body, dry finish. Stands out because of the freshness, but nothing else particularly unique about this IPA.

jredmond (5841) - Manhattan, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 Draft at Alewife Queens with Linh, Vi, Thi, Ken & Nicca. Pours a bright orange body with light haze and nice white head and lacing. Aroma is super fresh citrus and tropical fruits and a nice citric hop character. Mouthfeel is refreshing and sessionable with notes of citrus, pine, grass, grapefruit, lemon and light orange. An awesome IPA. Lots of Nelson in the Enjoy by April version. + 0.1

fidelis83 (2097) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Clear gold pour with a 1 finger, creamy white head. Huge tropical fruit, citrus and floral hop aroma, a little caramel and toast. Smells like a very fresh IPA. Tastes like one too. Lots of tropical fruit, citrus, a little pine and Amarillo - like spiciness. Some light caramel, toast and biscuit in there as well, but it’s really all about the hops. Medium body creamy entry, dry finish and fairly light carbonation. Awesome.

12-21-12. It poured a clear dark golden color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, pine and florals. The taste was of grapefruit, lemons, pine, grain, florals and some malt. Very tasty.

tastybeer (1823) - Indiana, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle. Blonde pour, big white head, some retention/lace. Aroma of grapefruit, floral, resinous hops, caramel, light booze. Taste is lightly bitter, orange peel, grapefruit, resin, caramel, a bit of booze. Palate is soft, oily, bitter finish. Good.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2012
12-21-12 batch bottle. Pours a thick, deep cheddar orange with a nose of peel-the-paint-off-your-truck pine sap, grapefruit, and orange rind. Flavor is pine sap-soaked grapefruit rind with a finish of orange rind body odor. Lingers on the tongue. Thanks to bleeng for this one!
