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.

So I fear that the version I had (which happened to be two days before its drink-by date) wasnt 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.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2015 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. Tasted again. 4.20.15 Batch, Tasted on 4/11/15. Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Golden yellow. Lively one inch head. Hoppy notes immediately when poured. Primarily citrus. Taste is lightly sweet, medium bitter. Light bodied. Thin texture. Average carbonation. One of the smoothest, most crisp IPAs I have had.

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.

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.

Pours a clear golden color with an eggshell head that quickly disipates. Smells of floral hops, pine and a bit of citrus. The taste is mostly piney with some floral and citrus notes, bitter but not unbearably so, goes down smooth with a dry bitter finish.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber color, bubbly white head cover, mottled curtain of lace. Aroma of hops. Taste is sweet malt that surrenders to solid, but not overwhelming, pine hops on the swallow, hops and some malt moving together to a long, satisfying finish. An exceptional brew.

Enjoy by 3-14-15. From a bottle. Amber body with white head. Aroma is fruity with a himt of pine and malt. Taste is nearly perfect; fruity and malty with the alcohol on the backend. An almost perfect beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
