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.

MadRobin (2505) - Silver Spring, USA - OCT 14, 2013
On tap 6 oz. sampler at Westover Beer Haus in Arlington, VA. Clear, bright amber with an off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of passionfruit, tropical fruit, mango, pineapple and caramel. Taste of passionfruit, mango, citrus, pineapple and caramel. Medium body and medium carbonation with a silky mouthfeel. Vey hoppy, yet balanced--more by fruit than maltiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

11.12.13, an excellent IPA a from one of my favorite breweries. Has a copper color with a lot of carbonation. Thin white head. Has a very piney taste to it throughout, but not overwhelming.

Nice flavor beer with a great citrusy taste from the hops. This entire series, regardless of date, is rather good for a hophead.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Pours a nice golden clear color with a foamy/fizzy white head that lasts a good while. Aroma is intense of heavy hops and citrus with a nice solid fruit as well. Flavor is very hoppy with still a good citrus resin note of moderate bittersweetness and it has a nice bitter stringent finish. Mouthfeel is a solid smooth bitterness and carbonation is average. Overall this is a solid awesome IPA.

commonmac (762) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2015 Tap pour in a pint glass at Butcher and the Boar. Aromatic IPA with a visually appealing golden color. Strong hop initial taste followed by sweetness of a double IPA. No real presence of alcohol which is surprising considering the ABV. Recommended. Consumed the Enjoy By 7.4.15 at New Bohemia on 6.12.15 again and will reinforce the high rating. Excellent beer.

10-25-13. Crystal clear light copper with a foamy head. Huge hop nose with notes of dank, pine resin and mango. Flavor is interesting...mango and a bit of malt. Bitterness is present but not overwhelming. Great fruity double that ends with a bit o alcohol burn
