Golden yellow, clear. Generous white head. Chemical pine smell, celery, lemon. Bitter explosion that subtles down a little at the end. Yeast bread, cracker at the end as well. A little too much bite.

(bottle - STLCOB tasting) Enjoy by 12/21/12 - gold with hint of green. Aroma of pine and some grapefruit. Flavor is pine, resin, grass. Could have been balanced with a bit more malt.

A very nice double IPA though smoother than most. Has a great mouthfeel, evenly balanced between a pine and resin bitterness and a caramel and bread base. Gift from Nick in 2012.

tulip. clear golden body with tall head. the aroma is rusted metal, and forms of citrus. light and easy to drink the taste is very pine nuts, pineapple, and mandarin. this is the third one I drink from the Enjoy By 11-09-12 batch and the first one i drinked 11-19-12 I have to say the hops on that one where more clean and easy to detect as this third one was more malty.

Excellent, you can definitely tell it’s fresh. Citrus hop aroma, though the taste is more pine bitterness (and now I understand why some people say "soap" finally). Tastes great. The bitterness hangs around on your tongue for a very long time, but it’s not overwhelming. A great beer.

As the description leads you to believe, this is a deliciously fresh, hoppy ale.
Aroma- citrus fruit, pine, slight hint of soap. Taste is in your face bitter, but in a good way. Not too thick or thin. Actually somewhat light appearance for a DIPA. Finish is clean, lingering bitter on the tongue. I would for sure buy next year ;-)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle served in a Southern Tier tulip glass. Enjoy by 12-21-12, batch 3.
A: Pours a perfectly clear amber color with a one finger of height pure white head forming on the pour. It dissipates to a frothy collar that leaves some sticky lace behind.
S: Some grapefruit, orange and lemon peel citrus. Sweet malts and just a touch of green onion in the periphery.
T: More green onion up front, but it doesn’t hinder the overall flavor profile. Sweet malts, some citrus zest and sticky grapefruit. As the beer warms it definitely takes on more of a sauteed vidalia onion taste to it.
M: Clean and crisp with a light medium to light body. Medium carbonation level.
O: It was better when it was colder, but as it warmed the onion-like qualities became more pronounced. The alcohol was really hidden though and I would have guessed it was 7% or so.

Bomber of 12.21.12. This is some good stuff! Pours cloudy yellow orange. Aroma is full of citrus hops. Very smooth, nice caramel stickiness and finishes with a citrus orange juice bite.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pale, clear amber with a small frothy off-white head and spotty lacing. Aroma of flowers, citrus, bread, earth, and a little dank. Taste is really well balanced, tons of fresh hop flavors against a mildly sweet malt backdrop. Medium bodied; smooth. Excellent.
