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.

Tap. Pours a slight hazy dark amber body under a one finger frothy off-white head that had excellent retention. The nose is big juicy and resiny hops with a fairly heavy caramel malt base. The flavor is pretty bitter, but not overly so, the heavy malt base keeps it somewhat in balance. It’s indeed quite fresh and hoppy. Medium to full bodied with fizzy carbonation and a slight sticky and clingy finish. Pretty nice beer, not something is drink every day, but for an occasional treat it’s good.

I have had many batches of this beer...I just realized that I have not rated it previously. Poured from 22oz bottle into tall glass. Pours dark golden in color with thick creamy white head. Aroma is a dank hop smell with some notes of mango. Taste is semi-tropical hop notes. Nicely balanced bitterness with residual sweetness. Super beer.

madvike (2753) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle (7-4-14 batch) Pours clear light amber with a ring of white head. Nose is dank hops, dry malt, tropical fruit, garlic--real clean. Taste is the same--real dry, with garlic and citrus. Medium-thin body with soft carbonation. Great stuff.

Strong, bitter aroma with grapefruit, tangerine, pine, and caramel. Flavor is bitter but smooth, with lots of tropical fruit. Bittersweet, spicy finish. Great double IPA.

Draft at Caliente in Pittsburgh with Devon, Don and Katie. Yes sir, a perfect score for a memorable beer. Plenty of floral and citrus notes. Very fresh!

Piney, crisp, bitter goodness. Not as dank as past offerings, but one of my fave beer series.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2014 I’ve tried several batches of this beer including 2/15/13 4/01/13 9/13/13 and 11/12/13. I’ve really liked them all, but find each distinct and unique in flavor and aroma. They say you never forget your first time... 2/15/13 happened waiting for a train in Philly. I remember thinking it was the best, or maybe second best beer I had ever tasted. The April batch was equally impressive. The last two seemed to show a departure from the previous broad hop flavor character. Of those batches I was not such an all out fan. I found the earlier batches to taste significantly bigger and better. *** 4/20/14*** - this batch is underhopped in both aroma and flavor. additionally, they seem to have used falconer’s flight or sorachi ace in this batch creating a harsh lemon pith flavor. disappointing considering this WAS a perfect 10 ***07-04-14*** - the disappointment continues. a solid and enjoyable earthy herbal aroma leads into another turn of harsh lemony hop flavor. what the hell happened to this beer??????????????????? ***08-16-14*** - a dramatic improvement over the last few releases. the flavor is much more balanced with a pronounced earthy spice and much less lemon pith. still not what it once was, but far superior to the pith bombs of late

Poured into snifter out of bomber. 7-4-14 edition, golden in color with thin laying white head. This beer could be trouble, because it is insanely drinkable at 9.4%. Notes of fresh cut grass and grapefruit. Flavors of fresh hops, caramel, citrus, finished by a resinous note. Thin on the palate for a DIPA and doesn’t have the typical sweet finish. Awesome bitter hop profile. Session at your own risk.
