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.

Draft at Jerry’s. Darker gold with big, foamy, flotsam white head / Bright, deep, earthy nose of weed, citrus, and cut pine / Medium body, smooth with some hop bite, excellent balance and bitter finish / Elegant flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, weed, pine, cream, and light brown sugar / A stunner - complex and stylish with a rich, creamy body, yielding no evidence that this 9.4% abv.

In drinking this on tap at Goodfriends. What a find. A real grapefruit aroma, and a smooth and hoppy flavor. I live this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crystal clear with a golden color. Gumball and candy smell. Theres a little malt too. Full flavored and bodied. Very well roinded flavors ranging from sweet to bitter with a long finish. Quite delicious.

Awesome. One of my favorite IPAs. Refreshing and very easy to drink. Tastes of pine and grapefruit with a hint of sweetness. My only complaint is it's hard to find. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the best beers I've ever had. So fresh. Really big fan. Not overpowering hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Just tasted the enjoy by 04.01.13. It was: resinous, full-on IPA front-and-forward. Great style example for fresh IPA. Yes I waited until the day before to drink it...but it was worth the wait. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was a really great IPA. I have not had another that was comparable or close too. The first that I had was 02.15.13. I will definitely buy again when it comes out in my area. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber brewed on 4/12/13. Enjoy by 5-17-13. Wonderfully fruity, hoppy aroma. Hazy gold with a creamy, frothy head and beautiful lace. Wonderfully hoppy flavor. A little hot so interesting that they market this as a beer that has an immediate shelf life. Near perfect beer. Glad I bought two.

Best IPA I have ever had. Extremely hoppy, but doesn’t contain too much bitterness...great brew.
