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.

Currently drinking this 9/13/13 version on its last day of "freshness" . Aroma is very piney and hoppy. Pours a light amber with a very thin white head. Very citrusy taste, pine notes in there as well. Bitter throughout, but the finish is even more bitter. This is a quality DIPA offering, but I’m actually a little bit disappointed that I don’t like this as much as ruination. Perhaps this doesn’t have the sweetness or the smoothness to match ruination. Perhaps I’ll give another one of these a try when they’re fresh.

Enjoy by 4.20.15. 12oz into tulip. Pours a golden orange with a thick white head. Aroma is resinous, slightly herbal hop notes. Taste is crisp and bitter. Not as good as some of the other batches, but at the same time better than others.

Great IPA. Very fresh floral aroma and great balance with the combo of hops. This brew is clear and crisp for an IPA. Very, very enjoyable.

12oz bottle. 04/20/2015 date. this series is about as good as it gets. normally have had this on draft or in the 22oz bottles. outside of the yellowish appearance there is really no critique I can make of this. smell is not a strong hop smell which I prefer, but the taste is full of hops. definitely one of the top beers in the world IMO.

Pi Day 2015 enjoy by. Poured a clear gold/amber colour with a fluffy white head that left beautiful lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, and bready malts. Flavor is sweet grapefruit and caramel malts. Medium bodied, chewy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a moderate to assertive bitterness on the finish. 3rd from this series for me, 2nd best.

So I fear that the version I had (which happened to be two days before its drink-by date) wasn’t as aromatic as it may have been when it was brewed. It was big, and overtly Stone (plenty of Cascade), but nothing that indicated/hinted that I was benefiting by drinking it when I did.

Taste date 3/12/15 almost a month past Enjoy By date..... Poured from 22 oz bottle into tulip. Hazy golden color. One and a half finger white head. Aroma is full of hopes, floral, grass and primarily citrus. Taste is lightly sweet and medium bitter. Light body, thin texture, average carbonation. Somewhat long, lightly bitter finish. Yet crisp. Overall great beer. One of the better IPAs I have had, but IPAs are not my specialty.
