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.

Bottle. Big tropical fruit nose, passionfruit dominates. Flavor is also dominate by passionfruit like tropical fruit notes. Great bitter kick near the end at the back of the mouth, very slight alcohol astringency. Hop bitterness and oils linger in the mouth for several minutes after each sip. Very good dipa - I would rank it up there near a beer like pliny, but strong alcohol notes detract just a little from overall perfection.

On tap at World of Beer in Naperville. Found this to be a typical stone ipa. Stone beers have a distinct bitter backbone which causes their beers to taste very similar in my opinion. The bittering hops overwhelm the palate and the brew. A nice beer for a hop head like me. Just lavks a little balance.

From the Bomber into a tulip. There is a burst of hop aromas from the moment the bottle is opened. In the glass the aromas really shine with super fresh earthy dank hops. More and more pine and citrus and really delightful herbal aromas present themselves as the beer warms. The appearance is a lovely light orange/gold and pours with a nice off-white head with good retention and lacing. This hop bomb is delicious. great bitterness in the mid-palate and a long lasting finish. I definitely wouldn’t call this balanced..but there is a nice biscuit/ cracker like malt presence that plays nice with the hops. Nicely resinous and oily on the roof of the mouth. This will wreck your palate by the end of the bomber. I would recommend all DIPA lovers give this a go but at this price point it’s also more gimmick than value..I bought this the same day as I purchased some Hoptimum and Double Trouble by Founders and trust me they were every bit as fresh. and a much better value.

Pours dark orange with a thick fluffy white head, and a huge hop aroma. An amazing flavor with notes of citrus, grapefruit and black pepper. Finishes smooth with a taste of caramel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fresh sour citrus and hop smell that blends into a beautiful tropical aroma. Clean orang yellow body with light foamy head. Earthy dry hop taste with notes grapefruit, tangerine and slight lemon. Carbonated, dry, and crisp on the palate. Its nice.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2013 5/17/13. Aromas of mango, kiwi, passion fruit, papaya, pine, wild flowers, slight dust, and slight caramel. Clear orange-gold with a fading, white head. Dry, earthy, floral, clay-like, and biscuity. Light-medium body, good carbonation, smooth and very drinkable, finishing with lingering tropical fruit flavors. 9/13/13. Floral fragrance, piney, and sharp citrusy aromas. Slightly hazy orange with a mostly diminishing, bubbly white head. Dry, a little fruity, and quite bitter. Light-medium bodied with refreshing carbonation, a little yeasty in the finish.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2015 A 5.17.13 edition thoroughly enjoyed on 5/3/13. Pours golden with a fluffy one finger head and perfect clarity. Beautiful aroma of floral grapefruit, pine, lemon zest, grass, wow. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Flavor is grassy pine and sweet citurs. Lighter flavor and mouthfeel than I expect from a top double but incredibly easy drinking. Nice beer for sure, and so fresh!
