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: 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) .

The aroma is simply unbelievable! Unlike any beer you’ve ever smelled. Imagine throwing hops all over your back yard, turning on the sprinkler then mowing the grass. I loved this beer, please make more!

Not a big IPA drinker but this stuff is just delicious. I’ve been fortunate enough to have tried about 6 batches and it never disappoints. However it’s worth noting that it will be a significantly poorer brew within days after the date on the bottle so don’t try to hold onto this one.

yngwie (14762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2013
On tap at Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens. As Enjoy By 09.13.13. A clear, dark golden beer with a small off-white head. Lots of peaches and pine cones on the nose, hop pellets. Some generic tropical fruits and malty sweetness. The flavor has the same hop pellet touch, with a faint sweetness, lots of bitterness and some piney, citrusy notes. Dry on the palate, full bodied and pleasantly carbonated. Lasting finish. Wonderfully tasteful, although a bit too much on the hop pellet side. 130817

On draught at baileys - pours a nice clear deep golden color. Nose is of pure hop. Smooth mouthfeel. Taste is hop dominate. Definitely not for the bud lovers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
