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.

02.15.13 version. This is the third in this series that I've tried and I think this is my least favorite one. Something about the mouthfeel on this seems off. That said, still a pretty damn good fresh DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Enjoy by 3-14-15. From a bottle. Amber body with white head. Aroma is fruity with a himt of pine and malt. Taste is nearly perfect; fruity and malty with the alcohol on the backend. An almost perfect beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sebilinz (665) - Linz, AUSTRIA - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle. Amber Body with white head. Aroma is fruity with some pines, I was expecting a little bit stronger aroma but still very good. Taste was nearly perfect fruity and malty with the alcohol very well hidden. Aftertaste is fruity bitter balanced by some malts. Perfect. Great brew.

venettafields (10) - - FEB 21, 2015
Enjoy By 12/26/14, had about three weeks before. Pours a golden orange with soapy, off white head. Lively carbonation. Aroma is just straight up grapefruit juice. Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. Maybe a little underripe pineapple, sweet malt. Taste follows nose, grapefruity, just a little bit of bitterness, not terribly complex. There’s so much malt in here, the bitterness hardly bothers you. Decently carbonated, a medium mouthfeel. For a widely available big IPA, this is pretty good.

djd07 (4532) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 16, 2015
4 day old bottle. Pours a clear copper gold with large frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is huge tropical and juicy hop, citrus. Medium Mouthfeel with nice juicy hop, nice bitterness, resin finish, really enjoyed this one.

Davros (2106) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 16, 2015
Pours amber, large head. Massively hoppy aroma, big pine, resinous, spicy and herbal notes along with some petrol-like new-world hops. Some light clean malt underneath. Clean flavours too, with a focus on piny, resinous and more petrol-like hop notes. Some slightly solvent-like booze notes.

Saeglopur (537) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - FEB 15, 2015
650 ml bottle 02/14/15, shared by Sebilinz. Thanks! Was looking for this for a long time, so the prefect beer for my rating #500!
Deep amber, clear body, with a medium, creamy, white head.
Lovely aroma of crisp citric, floral hops, with a lot of stone fruits, like peach, berries, some tropical fruits.
Taste follows this, also amazing, with a nice, balancing biscuit malt backbone.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes bitter, a bit dry, zesty, fruity, a bit malty.

As delicious as I was hoping for! Very smooth, perfectly balanced and quite easy for this ABV. The hops are just amazing! Not my absolute favourite DIPA I’ve had, but one of the best for sure.

Block (1596) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 14, 2015
This is the 2.14.15 batch. Golden pour with a fluffy white head.Aroma is familiar with hops, citrus, syrup. It smells like it’s going to feel sticky. A slight punch up front, smooth body, sweet middle. The bite comes at the finish. Hops and alcohol. A slight lingering heat. Wet finish.
