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.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2013 Enjoy by 9-13-13 batch. Bomber into Maine Beer Company glass. Pours clear golden/copper color, nice carbonation with 2 finger head. Nose is strong citrus, lemon, grass, earthy, musty. Mouthfeel is surprisingly smooth for a 9.4% DIPA. Taste is grapefruit, lemon, citrus, pine, iced tea, bright and hoppy. Finish has a great balance of bitterness and hops, the hops come at you in waves for a few moments after each sip. Dominated by the citrusy/grapefruit characteristics. I’m drinking 13 days after bottling, the hops must explode out of this one if you get it within a few days.This is an awesome beer.

9-13-13 batch (and my first). This is a scarily easy drinking DIPA. So much grapefruit citrus on the nose, and the taste is all hops. Lots of depth to this IPA, but still refreshing. All the citrus, pine, etc. but so much more that I can’t quite place. Either way, exquisite stuff. There’s fewer things better than a fresh IPA.

Taste is hoppy, spicy, with grapefruit, citrus, pine and a little bitterness come later. Really smooth and enjoyable. Very complex and well made. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

09-13-13 Release. Finally snagged one of these! Delicious scent of pine, fruity pebbles, and citrus. Decent appearance, light bronze with a nice head. A medium crisper than expected feel. The taste knocks you over with a piney fronted bitter grapefruit citrus flavor, grassy and as advertised, FRESH. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2013 RB says this is my 1900th US rating! Bomber, this is the 08/09/13 bottling, enjoy by 09-13-13, enjoyed on 08/21/13. Nose of pine, resin, big support from tropical fruit, passionfruit and lychee, very rindy and fresh. Brilliant clear golden pour with orange highlights, soapy and lacing white head. Taste is strongly bitter but not punishing, dry and lightly stripping, light alcohol (but surprisingly little!) with faint hop sweetness, overall a lot more balanced than expected. Grass, wood, heavy caramel, but lemon and grapefruit along with the exotic fruits, medium-full body a little fizzy. Some catty/papery notes on the side (almost definitely a Simcoe hybrid/descendent). It’s not truly innovative or paradigm-shifting, but the freshness leaps off the palate and it’s bathed in ultra-high level craftsmanship; balanced in several dimensions and boy does it screw with my booze detectors (I’d have put it at a 5.5%-6% abv IPA) .
