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.

derA (91) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 22, 2017
tap @ tap & bottle as enjoy by 4.20.17: well done DIPA from the west coast, nose is a good mix of citrus, tropical fruit and some pine, no individual flavor really stands out on its own but comes together quite nicely. Body is pretty full making for a chewy mouthfeel which is cut with enough bitterness to create a good balance. Finish is dank, for a lack of better descriptors but also quite a bit of tropical fruit. All in all this is a very well balanced, West Coast DIPA. Although it’s not my favorite style, this is a style-definition.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a tulip glass, it’s a crystal-clear golden color with a small white head that initially laces, but then disappears. Aroma is strong citrus, pine and resin. Medium bitter. I anticipated more bitter, but it’s good. Medium body, carbonation is on the softer side, and lightly sticky on the lips. Long finish, dry on the palate. Surprisingly timid for an Imperial IPA with its ABV (9.4%).

Enjoy by 12-25-16. Pours a clear gold with thin white film head, and you can see the carbonation. Nose is phenomenal - pungent grapefruit. The taste is also heavy on grapefruit up front, with plenty of hip bite on the finish. Really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Enjoy by 25/12/16, consumed 21/12/16. Clear orange. Deep aromas of tropical hops, caramel, pine. Medium to robust bodied, soft carbonation. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Dry hoppy and roasted flavors into an alcoholic finish. Very standard, though heavy.

bnokk (534) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 8, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2016 NOTES- I?m not going to influence this beer’s rating, and I thought all of the enjoy by were different (I’m drinking by 12-25-16).... But maybe that was just me thinking the date had something to do tieh to... But I?m going to add one more rating and one more beer to my 2nd card at the forge.
