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.

2.14.14 Bomber to glass mug. Pours a clear yellow, with an off white head that dissapates quickly. Smells a bit like a litterbox on the nose, some piney notes. Nice fresh hop flavors, really, really smooth. Can’t tell the AVB at all. Excellent.

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!

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 (400) - 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!

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!

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.

Bomber @ voyager. Pours somewhat light gold with lasting white head. Piney aromas, some tropical fruit like pineapple, mango, grassy notes, with light breadiness. Distinct fresh grassiness in the flavor, not as in your face hopwise as I was expecting, but pleasantly full bodied with enough hops to match. Light malt sweetness that morphs into hoppy sweetness on the finish.
