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.

All around great nose and balance. Enough hops to wet the appetite, but malt to back it up, yet leave it alone.

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.

TheCaptMatey (162) - Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2015
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.

On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. 3/14/15 version. This is a big boy, very heavy, very boozy. Definitely feels like a double....a lot "bigger" than I expected. Definitely had the hops and maybe a little bit of honey.

radiomgb (2446) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2015
650ml bottle from El Cerrito Market & Liquor in Corona, California. Enjoy by 3.14.15. Clear golden orange in colour with a thin white head, light lacing. The aroma has lots of cirtus, pine, caramel, tropical fruits. Flavour is highly bitter, lot of oranges, grapefruit, chewy, pine. Finishes very long, hoppy, very bitter.
