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.

19Ei8hty (1171) - Washington, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Bright golden straw body. Crisp and tight malt profile. Strong fruit notes mainly consisting of sweet pear, pineapple, grapefruit, and orange. Some good caramel sweetness with a bit of fresh biscuit and assorted cereal grains. Sharp piney hop component with some zesty lemongrass and the slightest of pepper on the finish.

Piney almost juniper smell. Nice hoppy Taste. Not sure I'm as big a fan of the expiration date concept as others. But overall a really good IpA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Guerde (1169) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2014
(the 02-14-14 bottle) Pours a clear gold color with a large white head that quickly settles to a medium cap and leaves a smattering of lacing. Aroma possesses a decent hit of hoppiness with pine, mint, maybe some orange, and a medicinal smell which doesn’t really interrupt the aroma, but provides an interesting and odd addition to it. Flavor holds some crushed orange flavored vitamins, caramel covered orange peel, booze heat, grapefruit and pine. The pine and grapefruit is there in spades on the finish, and it doesn’t really mix well with the booze presence. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is appropriate. Well, I won’t be buying these again.

deaconmike (386) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Enjoy by 2/14/14. Bomber poured into a snifter. Cloudy golden amber with a white bubbly head that dissipates to a thin cap. Very hoppy aroma - floral, tropical fruit and grapefruit rind along with a touch a caramel malt sweetness, also a bit dank. Taste is decidedly bitter with only a touch of sweetness from the caramel malt. Lots of citrus along with apricot. Long, dry bitter finish. Medium body and quite crisp. Very nice fragrant, juicy DIPA.

Bottle. Very nice orange, grapefruit and pine aromas and flavors. Notes of caramel malt and a citrus pop.

Alpha10 (338) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
2014/02/02 - Batch 02.14.14. Pours a clear copper colour with a three finger, foamy, off-white head that lingers and leaves modest lacing. Aroma is pine and floral hops, citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is grapefruit, orange rind, mango, pine and mildly sweet malts. Aftertaste is pine and mildly sweet malts. Mouthfeel is somewhat oily with lively carbonation and a sharp, bitter and drying finish. Awesome DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radarsock (920) - Vermont, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Batch Number: 2/14/14. $8.50 for the full pint purchased at the Grog last Friday evening. Pours an effervescent gold with which fashioned a nonexistent, whitish ringed head looming atop. Smells and tastes of cotton, edamame, American hops, clementine peel, and sea salt. Bitey finish, which had also managed to explore plastic, buckwheat, and California yeast. Respectably potable and bone-dry. This is indeed a good DIPA, and and an even better representation of the style, but I feel like I’ve had this kind of DIPA before. Nothing outrageously unique, but it’s solid and wonderfully crafted, and to some people that’s all that matters.

jdobbs (381) - New Brunswick, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
bottle. 2-14-14. Clear orange pour with a finger of white head. Citrus, pine, almond, spice. String carbonation. Medium body and creamy and slightly bitter and citrus finish. Hides the alcohol. Awesome

First sniffing this beer you will smell the wonderful hops that IPA drinkers can appreciate. The taste of this beer is delicious hops. Not overpowering hops but just pure deliciousness.
