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.

This is the Woodstock Festival for hops: Galina, Simcoe, Delta, Amarillo, Moerilla, Citra and Cascade. The 9.4 ABV goes underground in this finely balanced malt and hops fresh offering. It’s like fresh squeezed grapefruit juice over a pile of pine needles. West Coast double IPA on steroids!

On tap at Friendly Spot in San Antonio. Serve by 7/4. This is a great beer. Aroma is floral, wonderful hop aroma. Taste is floral and hoppy. This was worth the wait! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good choice of spices. Tastes of fruit zest. Good hops. Lower IBU'S for my taste but very good balance of flavors. Great beer to give your friend that you want to love IPA's. ---Crozier

I went old school on this bomber and sucked it right out of the bottle... It was fresh, delicious and refreshing. Nice one served up cold on a warm afternoon.

Pour is hazy copper orange with a white head. Piney and grapefruit aroma. Very bitter, but still balanced. A good IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 On tap at The Salted Pig. 7/4 batch. Awesome Ipa, wonderful floral aroma and earthy taste. Could drink this all day.

Nikiel (878) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle from QFC in North Bend. Pours an almost iridescent gold/orange with traces of white foam. Smells sweet, herbal, mildly tropical and citrusy. Tastes sweet, mildly medicinal, lots of bitterness (remaniscent of pinaple rind).

epiphyte707 (66) - eureka, California, USA - JUN 19, 2013
22 oz. from weaverville while camping. Aroma is of cat piss, pine resin, toffee malt, grassy, citrusy. Tastes like resinous fresh hop flowers with a clean stone malt backbone a spicy tingling on the palate that flows into a sublime hop aftertaste that is earthy grassy danky.

Wordsworth (132) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Bomber poured into Finnish pub mug. Pours a bright straw color with touches of amber. Thin white head that dissipates into a thin haze. Soapy white lacing slides down the glass. Aroma is grapefruit, a grassy smell, some melon, and a light sweetness that is alluring. The carbonation really bounces on the tongue with a clean mouthfeel. Taste is a wonderful balance of light piney sweetness, grapefruit and other lighter fruits, with a notable hop flavor that is not very bitter. The ABV is well hidden. A well balanced and accessible IPA that is very drinkable. Too bad I can’t cellar it!

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2013 What can I say? Perfect Pilsner-like color* For those who would argue that it should be more appropriately copper colored... *The first officially designated American craft brewed IPA was Grant’s, and it contained Pilsener malts of this golden hue. The nose is an exquisite melange of grapefruit, Mandarin orange, tangerine, pineapple, mango, peach, melon, kiwi, and lemon/lime. The flavors follow suit, and the body is medium to full with just the right amount of malt backbone which is more of a textural thing, in this case, than a flavor enhancer. The hops are given free reign to truly shine here. The balance is nearly flawless, right through the long, dry finish which is crisp, and remarkably refreshing. Wow!
