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.

Enjoyed at hopfields in Austin. My first enjoy by on tap. This may not have been the best to start with, but that criticism isn’t too be as harsh as it comes across.

Petkus331 (329) - Redford, Michigan, USA - APR 8, 2014
A strong aroma of reisling grapes and floral hops with a touch of citrus. Appears a copperish gold, some white lace. Taste starts a bit piney, but not overwhelming, fades into mild grapefruit bitterness, but is followed by a gentle sweet floral flavor, balanced and beautiful! Palate is lively, nice. Overall, wow! This is a great beer!

04/20/14 variant. Big, Bold, Beautiful, IPA true to the style, this batch a bit sweeter than the last. Still Raining Grapefruit, Pine, Resin, Hops on the palate. Just had a stronger malt backbone to me. #2 favorite style behind PtE. Stone does beer right. We who are about to drink this salute you...
