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.

In bottle courtesy of Ang’, shared with Loz, Ang’ and Julio’ at Moncada brewery, Friday 6th February 2015 Thanks Ang’! Pours gold the clarity is very good. I get pineapple cubes on the nose and in mouth along with some piney resin. Wow this is just amazing, fresh, tropical fruits jockey for attention in the mouth, the hops are incredible, I love the ’in yer face’ BBE idea, this is just so fresh, a real kaleidoscope of tropical flavours bursting out across your tastebuds. Wow a brilliant beer, thanks so much Ang’! A8 A5 T10 P4 Ov18 4.5

2-14-15 release. As compared to the last releases going back to 7-04-14 and even 3-17-14 this is not as bright and crisp. Its hoppy, but it doesn’t pop. Dull is a word. Was hoping for more.

RCx240 (109) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 10, 2015
Pours transparent but slightly hazy golden orange. Foamy off white head, leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma is powerful citrus and resin. Tastes of citrus. Finishes soft, quickly with a faint bitterness. Light body, soft carbonation, slight stickyness. Very light and sessionable considering its 9.4% abv.

Translucent and very light orange in color with lots of bubbles. There is a foamy off white head that is 3 1/2 fingers in depth. The aroma is very floral with tons of grapefruit and others like pineapple, apricot and maybe even nectarines. Moderate mouthfeel but very smooth and highly drinkable for a 9.4% abv. The taste is a blend of the same tropical fruits in the aroma along with a sweet caramel malt base. Not nearly as hoppy as I was expecting it to be. The bitterness encountered at the end is reminiscient of tart fruit skins.

Rich golden pour with an extravagant head. Citrus aroma with grapefruit and orange giving way to a little stickiness and some floral notes. This beer is fairly bursting with flavour and if not for the small boozy kick at the end I’d never know it was a 9.4 per cent double IPA. Terrific beer

Hazy, amber/orange appearance with a small off white head and nice lacing. Aroma starts off with resin and grapefruit then fades to floral. Unique, complex flavors as notes of tropical fruit mingle with the West Coast hop characteristics while the malts add a grainy edge in the aftertaste. Full bodied, dry, well carbonated mouthfeel with an expansive alcohol fueled finish. Enjoy by 02-14-15 bottling.

From a 500ml bottle (Enjoy by 2.14.15) on 7/2/2015 (just in time!), shared by Butz with thanks. Pours a clear golden with a medium head. Has a lovely tropical floral IPA nose to it. In the mouth, there’s lots of sweet citrus (orange, mandarin) and stone (apricot, peach) with some light malt. The bitterness is sticky and resiny, but the sweetness holds sway in the end. Has a syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Super drinkable for a double - you’d never pick it as 9.4% blind. Just a really harmonious, almost subtle double IPA, which is enormously enjoyable. Refreshing isn’t a word you’d usually associate with this style but it applies here.
