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.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - NOV 24, 2012
12-21-12 version. 22 oz. bottle served in a Duvel Tulip. Pours a brilliant gold with a finger of white head. Very fragrant hop aroma. Lots of citrus, esp. pineapple. Also a fair amount of caramel malt in the aroma. Not as bitter as the aroma would suggest. Lighter side of medium bodied. Not a lot of malt backbone, but this is about hops. Drying hop bitterness in finish. Dangerously drinkable for the ABV. Great way to highlight the importance of drinking hoppy beers when they are fresh.

DavoleBomb (1614) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Poured into a snifter. Enjoy by 4/20. 3.75 A: Light to moderately hazed copper color. Just about one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention wasn’t great, but I did pour it somewhat cold. 4.25 S: Big floral hoppiness to start. Notes of cat piss, grapefruit, pine resin, and orange and mango fruits. Really clean, which is how I like my DIPAs these days. Mild neutral maltiness with a hint of toasty caramel. 4.5 T: Again big hoppiness in this. Floral, some herbalness, piney, grapefruit are the strong flavor. Cat piss, citrus, and earth are underneath. Again clean neutral malts with light caramel. 4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and super smooth. 4.25 D: Overall, a damn good DIPA. I haven’t had one in a long time that impressed me, but this does. ★ 797 characters DavoleBomb, Apr 09, 2014

cmacklin (473) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 7, 2015
650ml bottle. (Enjoy By 07.04.15) Pours a clear golden orange with a large, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Fruity, hoppy aroma of peach, pineapple, grapefruit and pine. Sweet fruity flavour of peach, mango, passion fruit, pineapple, a hint of caramel and pine with a very dry, bitter, resiny, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. An excellent hop bomb with alcohol well hidden!

Habanero (3340) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2015
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy deep golden with an average off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, grapefruit, orange zest and pine. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and bitter. Medium bodied oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice DIPA indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Stone is the bomb. Clear orange copper color. Fizzy ok bring out hoppy character. Really hoppy bitter with extra clean finish. Can’t go wrong with stone.

lusikka (7594) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Draught @ Pizza Port Ocean Beach, San Diego, CA. Pours a hazy copper golden colour with a firm white head. Aroma of fresh resiny hops, grapefruit and caramel. Flavour of heavy resiny bitterness, grassy hops, caramel sweerness, grapefruit and herbs. Full bodied. Really heavy and enjoyable. Alcohol is rather well hidden. Great.
