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.

9/13/13 at the source. Super clean, absolute clarity hen looking through the glass. Really smooth, nice little kick of the hops. Obviously very fresh out of the brewery. Class act.

Has a very amber color. Not much foam or head, but some lacing tacking place on glass. For a higher ABV does not come across as strong. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 23, 2013
9-13-13 bottle. Copper/amber pour with a white head. Big aromas of citrus peel, pine, and resin. Big hop flavor on the palate all the way through. Like a hop bomb in your mouth. Bitter finish almost like burnt popcorn but in a good way. Interesting brew but it’s a beast. Not for someone just beginning to explore hoppy beers.

BK7 (773) - Turner, Oregon, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Bomber. Enjoy by 09-13-13. Grapefruit, citrus, pine and tropical fruit. Balanced towards the hops. Dank and resiny. Solid IPA bitter finish. Tasty.

JBPortland (1489) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2013
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.

LambicPentameter (13) - Chatham, New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2013
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.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2014 9.13.13. Pours amber with foamy head. Nose is grapefruit, citrus, floral hops, pine, resin, cat pee. 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
