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.

Pours dark orange with a thick fluffy white head, and a huge hop aroma. An amazing flavor with notes of citrus, grapefruit and black pepper. Finishes smooth with a taste of caramel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fresh sour citrus and hop smell that blends into a beautiful tropical aroma. Clean orang yellow body with light foamy head. Earthy dry hop taste with notes grapefruit, tangerine and slight lemon. Carbonated, dry, and crisp on the palate. Its nice.

Emeister84 (936) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 3, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2013 5/17/13. Aromas of mango, kiwi, passion fruit, papaya, pine, wild flowers, slight dust, and slight caramel. Clear orange-gold with a fading, white head. Dry, earthy, floral, clay-like, and biscuity. Light-medium body, good carbonation, smooth and very drinkable, finishing with lingering tropical fruit flavors. 9/13/13. Floral fragrance, piney, and sharp citrusy aromas. Slightly hazy orange with a mostly diminishing, bubbly white head. Dry, a little fruity, and quite bitter. Light-medium bodied with refreshing carbonation, a little yeasty in the finish.

BMMillsy (1325) - Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 A 5.17.13 edition thoroughly enjoyed on 5/3/13. Pours golden with a fluffy one finger head and perfect clarity. Beautiful aroma of floral grapefruit, pine, lemon zest, grass, wow. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Flavor is grassy pine and sweet citurs. Lighter flavor and mouthfeel than I expect from a top double but incredibly easy drinking. Nice beer for sure, and so fresh!

5-17-13 Edition. I had one previously but did not rate. Pours hold with lots of carbonation a pillowy white head and great floral citrus hoppy aroma. So much hops. Its like eating a pineapple. Tons of big citrus and floral flavors. Fresh as it can possibly be. Medium bodied caramel malt backbone, but you will barely be able to tell with all the hoppy madness. Brilliantly hides the high ABV, cannot tell its that strong at all. This is one of the best IPA’s I’ve had hands down. Right up there is Three Floyd’s dreadnaught.
