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.

11.12.13 Batch. Crystal clear golden yelliw color. Got this right off the delivery truck st Joe Canals West Deptford. The aroma is flowery, but not overly strong. The aroma should be strong for a good IPA. You can clearly taste the hops however.

deyholla (7370) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Enjoy by 11-12-13 bottle. Pours a clear amber orange with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of pine and resin with underlying grapefruit and caramel. Flavor starts with bitter pine and grass and has a growing resin note and a touch of onion with a hint of grain in the finish.

MadRobin (2182) - Silver Spring, USA - OCT 14, 2013
On tap 6 oz. sampler at Westover Beer Haus in Arlington, VA. Clear, bright amber with an off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of passionfruit, tropical fruit, mango, pineapple and caramel. Taste of passionfruit, mango, citrus, pineapple and caramel. Medium body and medium carbonation with a silky mouthfeel. Vey hoppy, yet balanced--more by fruit than maltiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

11.12.13, an excellent IPA a from one of my favorite breweries. Has a copper color with a lot of carbonation. Thin white head. Has a very piney taste to it throughout, but not overwhelming.

Nice flavor beer with a great citrusy taste from the hops. This entire series, regardless of date, is rather good for a hophead.
