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.

I've had four of these, most recently the 10/25/13, and they've all been dynamite. Ridiculous hops flavors, and then some more hops to balance things out. Really awesome beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AbbeyRoade (437) - Missouri, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Probably the best double IPA I’ve ever had....and I have had a lot of ’em. Extremely fresh, juicy, floral hop aroma. Taste is incredibly quenching, sticky, sweet, hoppy...no bitterness, not too much carb. This is truly a perfect brew. Nice golden color with white foamy head. Delectable.

Very nice, but a little sweet. Peach notes are pronounced. This is an excellent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aurelius (4603) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2013
A ballsy play by stone. Great painted bomber. Clear, light orange beer, big fluffy head. Assertively hoppy aroma, on the edge of being chemical. Not my style, but technically very good. Edgy, fruity (kumquat, grapefruit, pineapple), a little soapy perhaps, mineral. Silky mouthfeel, citrus pith bitterness in the finish. Piney burping afterwards. Big beer, 10.25.13 batch on 10.4.13. New Leaf Market.

Barreras (1180) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Pours a nice golden amber color. Aroma is of pine, mixed with clean citrus and hops. Taste is crisp, fresh, and easy going. The only thing typical about this beer is the IPA aftertaste that quickly dissipates after the swallow. A very tasty IPA that is truly fresh, with huge floral and citrus notes.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2013 Enjoy by 10-25-13: This is not a delicate, refined or particularly academic DIPA. It is a raucous romp into hop domination. There is a nice base of malt but the hops are not restrained or balanced by this aspect. The hops are complex but the most interesting component is the dank of muscadine. In wine this flavor is called foxy and is not so highly esteemed. It is more appealing in beer, almost as much as in muscadine jelly. I’ve had previous batches of this series, but this is the best yet. Enjoy By 12-13-13 This just keeps getting better. Malt is still very strong but hops get the edge. The balance between hop flavors and malt sweetness is deeper and more complex as hops seem a touch more expressive in this iteration. I have been interested, now I’m hooked.

10-25-13-Dank, citrus, floral, resin aromas. Pours a brilliantly clear golden color with a nice white head. Tropical, citrus, dank, resin, floral, bitter fruit, bitter wow this is awesome and present, but well hidden @9.5

Pours a nice golden color with a medium head that leaves a little lacing. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit and the bitterness of the hops. Strong hoppy notes at the beginning, middle and end, with a touch of citrus, and a little malt to balance the immense hoppiness.worth seeking out.

(bottle - 22 oz - 9/13/13) Clear amber pour with a thick white head. Big aroma and pine resin nose overtop my favorite citrus hints for a DIPA. You know there’s a lot of hops coming your way. Peppery hops and big citrus at the front of the aroma with a big pine middle and a heavy hop and floral finish. Sweet and bitter finish. Really nicely put together.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Great concept for a double IPA. Clear amber color, moderate to large head, good lace/retention. Aroma is strong resin with notes of grapefruit, pine, citrus, caramel. Pretty straightforward, don’t expect anything new here. Regardless, what’s here is good. Medium to full body, high bitterness, quite drinkable, strong resin flavor dominates.
