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.

Enjoy by 05.17.13 bottle. Pours orange yellow in color nice white head that fades very light lacing on glass. Aroma is a very nice variety of different citrus smells. Taste is of orange tangerine grapefruit pine slight malt taste. Also very nice hoppy flavor. nice body and carbonation very drinkable. I like the bottles better then the kegs.

Infiniteipa (30) - - JUL 23, 2014
Enjoy by 16.08.2014, drank 23.07.2014. Clear bright light orange with a thin white head. Aroma is thick, heavy, wet, juicy hops, fantastic. The initial taste was less intense than expected, but the mid and end palate hits with thick sticky wet hops, oily finish, not too bitter, big big flavour, very fresh, very happy! Amazing beer, say what you want about Brewdog, but getting this to Leeds in such a short time and into my hands is amazing.

GlasgowTAD (19) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Light bronze in the glass with a 2 finger head that disappears quickly. Aroma of pine, citrus and tropical fruits. Taste like a creamy peach desert in your mouth! Then the bitterness comes in and appeases the hop head inside!

tomer (1644) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUL 19, 2014
At a tasting, thanks Levi, smallish head, just a little hazy lightish orange with yellow hues, aroma of pine and grapefruit, malty biscuity flavour with strong herbal grapefruit bitterness. Straight forward and quite enjoyable.

Ktwse (1876) - SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2014
Pours light cloudy orange amber with medium tall white head. Aroma of resin, grapefruit, peach, mango, very fruity. Taste is an excellent balance between bitter and sweet, starting off slightly sweet before a big bitter kick, then the two balance out before a long resinous finish. Body is light to medium, very smooth with soft carbonation.

At home from a 22-oz. bottle, 07.04.14 edition (bottled on 05/28/14). Arrowine - the fantastic wine/beer/cheese shop in Arlington, VA - had this beer reduced from $8.99 to $6.99 due to it being past expiration. However, it’s still really tasty, as to be expected. I’ve had this on draft in its youth, and am well aware it hasn’t really aged all that much. In fact, I’m loving it more now than ever. Consider it context influencing my rating... Aroma: fresh grapefruit, juicy overripe pineapple, almost the sweet notes of durian (in a good way) - this is a classic California IPA! Hoppy and boozy, there’s no mistaking what style this is. Appearance: mellow gold, clear with gentle bubbles that keep things lively, fine white head. Taste: well-balanced with the hops and sweetness to keep you going back for more, though may be missing a bit of the bite from it pushing a couple months in the bottle. Still, surprisingly easy to drink at 9.4% ABV. Palate: full body, a bit oily in texture (no doubt thanks to the fresh hops), an average carbonation to keep things fresh, and a nice long finish that’s quite satisfying. Overall: this is a great beer, particularly yummy with the rotisserie chicken from neighboring Crisp & Juicy. I’m awfully glad I bought two!

CacheManyHose (164) - HONG KONG - JUL 16, 2014
From San Diego. Completely translucent honey amber pour with sudsy white head and no legs. Smells very, very strong - floral and piney hop like a punch to the nose. Some juicy malt and spice/pepper as well. Tastes similar (so much hop!) though more drinkable than the aroma might have you believe, and less malty. Body is oily but crisp. Like the 8 Wired Fresh Hopwired but with every flavour - especially the hop - amplified. Big and enjoyable.

HKdIPA (210) - HONG KONG - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle from Stone Tasting Room in SD at home. Clear light amber pour with thin foamy head. Piney hops aroma - very piney. Taste is super sharp piney hop explosion followed by enough sweet malt to...not balance it (at all) but even things out. Lasting bitterness. Hard to believe this is 9+% alcohol - it's actually quite drinkable. Despite the intense hoppy bite it's pretty easy going. Would be interesting to taste alongside other fresh IPAs like Fresh Hopwired. Would definitely get again.

Leafs93 (1644) - Dunmore, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2014
7/4/14 - Pours clear gold with a medium white fluffy head. Aroma is pine, resin, grapefruit and floral...all hops. Taste is bitter throughout with a lingering tart finish. A touch of citrus sweetness.
