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.

Bottle, enjoy by 2/15/13. Forgot about this one in the back of the fridge, so just cracking it tonight. Clear bright slight orange tint golden with 1 finger head on pour that falls rather quick to a ring and flabby bubbles. Papaya, tropical/fruit punch hops, piney, as it warms, more garlic and green onion start to come out. Crackery pale malt in there too, but this is a massive oily in your face hop nose. The hop flavor is a bit more balanced/cohesive on the palate, but doesn’t really fit what I like in a hop profile. Sweet, bit astringently rough, garlic and onion flavors come in late, but thankfully fade to just more of a sweet bitter piney finish.

Bottle at RBBSG, thanks for sharing 77ships. Danky, piny hops, bitter but not too much. Awesome.

A special one for rating #500- Enjoy By 07.04.15. Appearance is light and golden, a little bit cloudy, an almost white bubbly head of about half a finger. Aroma- lots of it- tropical fruits, lemon, mango, orange, pine, grapefruit juice, an underlying sweet maltiness, hint of yeast, loads of hops. Taste- orange juice, pineapple, bitter orange peel, hop resins, tropical fruit juice, no hint of alcohol, there is a malty, caramel tinge in the background, less carbonation than expected. Oily mouthfeel, a very fruity, clingy finish. Outstanding.

A beautiful light amber colour with a thick white head. Aroma is grass, lemon & lime. Thick mouthfeel for an IPA with balanced bitterness (not the hop bomb I was expecting). Some sweetness (crystal malts?) with light mango, grass & wood/earth taste. The taste disguises the strength. An exceptional IPA. Drunk on 3rd July 2015 (just in time!). Rated by BrewTom

07-04-15 edition enjoyed under the wire. Mostly clear bright orange with centimetre of vanilla coloured foam. First impression is tremendously aromatic, even through a head cold. Lots of resin, pine, grapefruit. Taste is big, to be sure, and very, very fruity. Bit of a boozy hit initially but it opens into a glorious citrus bomb. Remarkably little finish, oddly enough, but it keeps it from being too overpowering. If only all IPAs were this fresh!

McNeillR (1677) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 30, 2015
Brassy golden, visible carbonation and a decent white cap that fades fast. Nose is brassy grapefruit and grassy sweetness. Unturned bitterness throughout, crisp and decadent without being genericly limey. Shakes of melon and the fleshiness of papaya and guava. Rich, inviting carbonation and a twisted sherbert buzz on the mouthfeel. Incredible dusting of earnest hop sweetness throughout, solid dry hopping ploofs towards the finish. Sweaty grapefruit linger with more of this intriguing lean sweetness.

650ml brown bottle. Enjoy by 07.04.15 - bottled on 05/30/15. Yellow, hazy. Good sized white cap with lots of clinging lace. Aromas of grapefruit and orange, tropical fruit, pretty vibrant. Taste has grapefruit and some tropical notes and pine. Aftertaste is heavy on pine, with some fruitiness. Smooth for its strength, just a bit of the alcohol showing late. I liked this a lot.

simont1 (401) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2015
Clear yellow, aroma of alcohol, grass, bitter grapefruit, mango, dried stonefruit. Taste is very messy, big booze, some malt and a disappointing bitterness with not too much aroma hops.

Pours a tangerine yellow, slight head. Citrus aromas. Grapefruit and other tangy citrus. Hoppy bitterness perfectly balanced with floral aromas and citrus flavors. A beautiful IPA!

Bottle from Value On Liquor Store, Vancouver
bottled 2015-05-30, enjoy by 2015-07-04

Hazy golden to light amber color. The aroma more than the flavor offers pungent, piney hops; the body is lean and the mouthfeel rather dry, yet it’s smooth; the malt is a bit biscuity although not exciting.
A good hop bomb. Initially I didn’t feel at all the high octane, it tastes like a regular modern IPA, extra points for this!

jc1762 (181) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 27, 2015
07-04-15 Batch. Pours dried mandarin orange with barely any foam. The nose shows moderately intense citric orange and pineapple, The body is full bodied with a barely perceivable IPA bitterness and a mellow fruit forwardness that makes for extremely easy drinking. A good malt support that neither interferes nor is it too weak to support the freshness of the hops.
