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.

MrHangover (2452) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2013
Tap @ FreshCraft, Denver. 11-12-13 version. Pours a clear golden beer with a medium white head. Aroma is big citrus, pine and West Coast hops are highly represented in there. They must’ve used tons of hops in this one. Flavour is exactly how I like my IIPA, perfect combo between hop juicyness and sweet malts. Epic brew, long lasting bier finish. Amazing.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 Rating #1 Bottle of 11.12.13 (8 3 8 3 18). An amber color with a foamy white head. A sweet hoppy aroma. So smooth and so rich in flavor and texture. Rating #2 Bottle of 12.13.13 (8 3 9 4 18). A golden amber color with a white head. A strong pine hoppy aroma with a rich resin finish. This is how I like my double IPAs.

Bottled and on tap, numerous batches from numerous sources, finally getting around to a rating. What a great way to advertise an IPA. You can taste the freshness, no doubt. The aroma explodes with floral hop tones, passion fruit, citrus and lemongrass. Flavor follows with solid balance between grains, grapefruit bitterness, orange peel and pine sap. Finish is very clean, dry and peppery. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Really tasty.

10.25 Bottle. The look is super clear, good sized white head, and golden in color, and bright. The smell is big and fruity, stone fruits, florals, hops, grassy, and nice. The taste is crisp, hops, alcohol, fruits, floral, deep, and rich.

Enjoy by 11/12/13, purchased in Cincinatti, OH on first day of availability. Bottled 10/04/13 so 5 days ago. Nose on chilled freshly poured beer was pure dankness which I associate to simcoe based on some of my single hop simcoe homebrew experiments. As the beer warms the aroma’s explode open, I get orange peel, mango, grapefruit and pine resin, words cannot describe how amazing it smells. Taste is creamy, smooth, I get some slight alcohol on the finish but hidden very well for 9.4%. Beautiful light orange color. Light on IBU’s, was expecting something closer to ruination at 100+, this seems less. For me this beer is all about the nose at the bottom of the glass as it has warmed, absolutely divine. Excellent beer, very happy I was able to buy an entire case of it!

Beerenberger (1379) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2013
10-25-13 - Pine, spruce, and resin combine with pineapple notes provide a robust hop aroma. An orangish-amber pour under a white ring with no lacing. As one would expect, the overall taste is bitter, but not over the top as the nose suggested. Pine, resin, and tropical fruit, are dominate thought out the taste experience, start to finish. There is also a welcomed malt presence. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, very refreshing and surprisingly drinkable.

Tap at Fresh Craft, Denver. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a thin white broken head. The aroma is big hop and some creamy butterscotch. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a rich malt hop liqourice palate. Now this is a real IPA!

Draft at Fresh Craft, Denver. Pours clear orange with a small off white head. Aroma is amazing fruity, tangerine, grapefruit, citrus, pine, resin, orange peel. Flavour is light moderate sweet and heavy bitter, hop resin clinging onto your tongue and not letting go. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Nice brew!
