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.

I’m not sure what I change. This comes as close to perfect as I’ve tasted. Top to bottom great.

SlackerMads (1776) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2015
Here’s the first of the day, fellas! Bottle. Enjoy by 02.14.15. Clear yellow with a medium sized off white head showing good retention and lace. Pretty soft for its size and well balanced; not too sweet or overly bitter. The alcohol isn’t too aggressive either, it warms and gives a light sting on the gums. Sweet tropical fruits; peach, mango, pineapple, some green wooden notes and a bit of onion and white cheese as well, mostly in the nose and towards the finish. Very much hop driven but with enough body to carry it all. The finish is also well balanced and slowly fades. Very good example of the style and drinks well.

Really amazing beer all around. Nose is super bright citrus and clean, grass and loads of hops. Flavor is similar, again loads of hops, plenty of citrus and bitterness. Resinous as can be. I’m a big fan

mambossa (30) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2015
2-14-15 batch. Pours golden, good head retention, medium carbonation. Aroma is nice and earthy-floral with sour citrus. Taste resembles smell, more fresh citrus lingering with nicely-sticky mouthfeel. Earthy-grassiness still present for great depth. Super enjoyable, alcohol hidden skillfully.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Enjoy By 14/02/2014. Aroma is citrus with pineapple notes. Pours golden yellow with a thin white head. Big citrus hops with bitterness upfront with a fading finish. Great to get this freshness in Perth, worth the price.

Great beer, well rounded IPA. call it a gimmick or is it a person who has a passion for providing the best quality.. either way the beer works for me, only issue is the $$$ for one of these bad boys

650 mil bottle from park hotel big stone fruit aroma golden yellow with white head taste is smooth for such high abv $30 aud but to get this beer only 2 week after bottling in Australia it's going to cost

Bottled 11.13.14. Poured from a bomber into a beer can glass on 12.16.14. A: Very citrusy. Orange and pineapple. Juicy West Coast style. A: Thin head. Hazy light orange body. T: Pineapple dominates. Orange, honey, pine, and slight burnt biscuit are subtle. P: Crisp. O: It has the West Coast IIPA flavor for sure. It’s light on malt and the hops are strong.

wvhoran (377) - Tasmania, - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle. Shared with Pat and Dad, 12 days from the date. Great to get this stuff so fresh in Australia, thanks to the guys at Saint John Launceston. Pours golden amber with a small white head. The aroma has lots of floral notes, pine, citrus (orange, grapefruit), some strong Columbus notes too (earthy, onion-y). Flavour is sweet with oranges, pine, toffee. Alcohol is perceptible but barely. Delicious.

VeinAle (27) - Clearwater, Minnesota, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Aroma is candied fruit, apricot and pear. Pours gold, has a fine froth of a head. Taste is sweet and hop. It isn’t until after a swallow that you can smell the abv, it is hidden well in the sweetness. A deep gulp gives the pine and resin hop palate. This will easily sit at the upper echelon of my IIPA roster. Highly suggested.
