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.

The grassy, herbaceous hop aroma coming off this has Stone written all over it. Beautiful crystal clear medium gold color with a nice and lasting white head. The first sensation is a bite at the back of the throat which I’m not sure is caused by the hops or the alcohol or both, but it’s an enjoyable sensation. This is quickly followed by a devastatingly bitter, tongue numbing bitterness with a delicious combination of grass, pine and grapefruit (all the greatest hits!). This is countered by a caramel malt sweetness that helps mellow the hops just enough to keep it from becoming ridiculous. That balance of sweet and bitter sticks to the tongue through the finish. I did miss my perfect window of 7/4/2013, but I can’t imagine this being any better than it is.

Bottle; poured a dark orange color. Aroma was perfumy with alot of floral. Taste was quite bitter; floral, perhaps too much so. Strong, but not the best/most complex flavor.

alexanderj (3313) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle; 8/2; strong aroma of citrus, grapefruit, earth and BO/funk. Flavor was good, but probably average for the style. Earthy and citrus; alot of hopping. Some sweetness; alcohol fairly well subdued. Good, not great.

All around great nose and balance. Enough hops to wet the appetite, but malt to back it up, yet leave it alone.

Enjoy By 08.02.13 poured from bottle. Perfect color for an IPA. Love the aroma - citrus and floral notes. Great hop character too. Very clean front with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Not quite as good as when it’s a day or two old, but still very good.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2013 Deep straw with fluffy white trade. Slightly hippy aroma not what I would expect. Really quite hoppy, nicely so. Lingers well with a nice finish. Pretty nice. Really opened up once it warmed. It was really nice then!

Tried this in a tasting at the beer store. Fruity and hoppy to be sure. A bit over the top for my personal preferences. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had the most recent version on tap. Lots of pine, citrus, and some scallion. The taste didn’t disappoint and was nice and piney with some citrus notes as well. The finish is right where you’d want it to be bitter, dry and flavorful. Only down side was the scallions...
