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.

wvhoran (455) - Tasmania, - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle. Shared with Pat and Dad, 12 days from the date. Great to get this stuff so fresh in Australia, thanks to the guys at Saint John Launceston. Pours golden amber with a small white head. The aroma has lots of floral notes, pine, citrus (orange, grapefruit), some strong Columbus notes too (earthy, onion-y). Flavour is sweet with oranges, pine, toffee. Alcohol is perceptible but barely. Delicious.

VeinAle (134) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Aroma is candied fruit, apricot and pear. Pours gold, has a fine froth of a head. Taste is sweet and hop. It isnt until after a swallow that you can smell the abv, it is hidden well in the sweetness. A deep gulp gives the pine and resin hop palate. This will easily sit at the upper echelon of my IIPA roster. Highly suggested.

njager246 (697) - grand rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 21, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2015 Aroma us a ton of citrus hops, a lot of hops in the flavor, not much by the way of malts, nice

maneliquor (3493) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Air freighted over is pretty fucking sweet. Considering I just had Bone King, this to me is like an intensified version. Although it is fresher. Nose is zesty as all hell with MASSIVE pine needles, mango and pineapple. So juicy and zesty all round. Its a pine needle show with a bullshit amount of tropical fruits. Just bullshit. My only qualm would be the heat right on the back end which lingers a little. In saying that this is fucking incredible. Worth the price tag. One of the best I have had

Gramoit (431) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2015
WOW! OH WOW! SO much aroma, Big Piney hops take over, one of the best beers I have ever had! Well worth the big money I spent.

scoth (668) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Enjoy by 02-14-15. Pours clear copper-orange with a big puffy beige head, very fine lacing, excellent retention. Strong pine resin aroma with grapefruit, grass, biscuit, and some floral notes. Medium body, smooth, velvety. Mildly sweet, a hint of citrus tartness, into a lasting medium-strong bitter finish, lightly dry. Complex and delicious hop profile.

dbrownfi (1) - Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2015 does not count
Great aroma and look. However this beer lacks on taste and palate balance. Perhaps a malty component would enhance this otherwise above average dipA.

pivo (2667) - GERMANY - JAN 18, 2015
Great gold color and light head. Nice big fresh hop nose. Biting sharp bitter taste from beginning to end. Lingering hop end. Like a dry martini.

Nice golden color, small frothy head. Nice fresh hops little sweet nose. Medium hoppy start, a bit grainy. Medium long lasting. Nice
