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- weve taken it further, a lot further, in this IPA. You see, we specifically brewed it NOT to last. Weve not only gone to extensive lengths to ensure that youre getting this beer in your hands within an extraordinarily short window, we made sure that the Enjoy By date isnt randomly etched in tiny text somewhere on the bottle, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and beer fans. Instead, weve sent a clear message with the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.

HeadyDE (811) - Delaware, USA - APR 25, 2013
Draft offering at 2SP..described as vibrant notes of citrus/pine with an aggressive hop edge smoothed out by subtle malts...typical double ipa appearance...excited to try this one out..aroma is as billed..grapefruit..lemon lime citrus notes intertwined with piney action..really good nose..grapefruit bitterness lingers on the palate..has some hoppy iced tea like characteristics..masks the abv very well..quite impressed by almost everything about this..solid mouthfeel..leaves pretty good lacing..happy to give this a go..go get some..

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2013
Pour is hazy gold color with a small white head. Nose is dominated by hoppy pine resin, theres some tropical fruit there too and little bit of a bready malt note somewhat hidden. Wow, this tastes excellent. Huge tropical fruit up front, very hoppy and bitter with some citrus and pine and a touch of spice. Medium bodied, medium to low carbonation. I didnt get a chance to review the 4.1.13, but this is just as amazing as I remember it.

glennmastrange (2803) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2013
Bottle. Light to moderate grain for the malt, heavy almost harsh green grass, green spruce tips and grapefruit peel for the hops, Light soap for the yeast with a hint of green apple, solvent and passion fruit. Head is small, frothy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear light amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, then finishes faintly sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a lively carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. Damn! I never really understood the whole "fresh hops" thing. This DIPA certainly exemplifies that.

Steasy66 (1124) - Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle into tulip. Straw color with lacy white head. Aroma is mostly citrus, pink grapefruit, a hint of floral hops. Flavor opens sweet, middle is citrus hops, finish is crisp and bitter. Medium body and carbonation. Fantastic beer.

DuffMan (10070) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2013
On to at Radio Maria. Light golden body with a thickly lacing white head. Incredible floral passionfruit aroma, very vibrant. Densely hoppy palate, tons of tropical fruit, some pine too, with a very peppery finish. How Cana beer this size stay so drinkable and juicy bright? I dont know, but this has set a new standard for DIPAs in my mind. Absolutely outstanding. Wow.

jbruner (4566) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 24, 2013
UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 Enjoy By 5-17-13. Pours a clear golden orange from the bottle with thin off-white bubbly head and light lacing. Aroma of dank citrus hops, resinous grapefruit and orange. Taste follows, slight sweet malt start but great citrus hop freshness and a lasting bitter finish. Damn solid beer. Even better on tap!

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - APR 24, 2013
Enjoy By 05-17-13. Bottle from Proof. Deep gold pour with a frothy white head. Resiny, dank citrus and tropical fruit hops fill the aroma with some candied orange sweetness. Enters with a smooth malt creaminess quickly turning into dank, resiny, wet hops with tropical fruitiness with a lengthy bitter end. Some noticeable alcohol. Damn fine beer.

Hopsclation (89) - Chicago, - APR 24, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2013 Hard to imagine a traditional west coast ipa being better than this. Juicy, fresh, hops come through right away and linger on the tongue for a long time. Mango, melon, pinneapple, and of course grapefruit and orange stick out. If you like pure, crisp, hop juice than this might be the top of the mountain...

Daytonbeer (729) - Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2013 Pours dark gold with white head and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and floral hops mixed with sweet alcohol and light fruit. Taste is hoppy and nicely balanced with a malty backbone and cough syrup finish. Great double IPA. 12.13.13 is even better.
