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.

Oh this is a hop bomb. Aroma sells out. Lots of pine, caramel-malt, floral, grapefruit, peach. Some onion. Right up there on the aroma Richter scale. Reminds me an awful lot of Magic Rocks Unhuman Cannonball in taste as well...Medium/full body but becomes a little watery on the back-end. Really quite sweet initially: honey, stone-fruit. Pine resin barges it out the way and balances caramel tones. Finish is moderately bitter and offers some medicinal honey. Great beer, wonderful sipper on the porch at night. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Fantastic Beer, poured with a nice head into a 10 oz glass. Aroma is unbelievable, doesnt compare to anything I have smelled before. Poured a beautiful golden with a nice frothy head. Taste, I dont really know what to say besides malty hop bomb, which for the style is exactly what I am looking for. Not overly bitter, but instead lots of true hop flavor. Would definitely have again.

Off the chart IPA. The overall I would of rated higher but think it unfair to not leave room for the perfect beer, like looking for the holy grail. The Aroma is floral with citrus hints perfectly balanced. The 9.4 Alcohol is really hidden. Made the mistake of using a shaker this should be served in a sniffer. The appearance is nothing much golden color with a minimal white head. Taste is a pleasant bitter hoppy taste. Thin but full bodied with a long finish. Damn good IPA up there with the best I have had

Copper color with minimal head. Pleasant floral and citrus hop aroma. The hop bitterness is well integrated with the rest of the beer, not overwhelming like some DIPAs. Nice brew

Bomber, Enjoy By 7/4/2014. Nice floral, citrus hop aroma. Pours amber colored with a nice, foamy white head with excellent retention and lacing. Refreshing floral and citrus hop flavors intermingling well. Finishes dry with a bit of a resiny hop bite. Excellent, fresh tasting IPA.

Big citrus and floral aroma. Pours a light amber...nice lacing. Big citrus flavor and very fresh tasting. Big bite on the palate yet leaves a nice grapefruit aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark, golden hazy. Minimal head. Beautiful grapefruit, pine aroma. Citrus and mild maltiness. Very good ipa.

kramer (6570) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Tap. Pours a slight hazy dark amber body under a one finger frothy off-white head that had excellent retention. The nose is big juicy and resiny hops with a fairly heavy caramel malt base. The flavor is pretty bitter, but not overly so, the heavy malt base keeps it somewhat in balance. Its indeed quite fresh and hoppy. Medium to full bodied with fizzy carbonation and a slight sticky and clingy finish. Pretty nice beer, not something is drink every day, but for an occasional treat its good.

I have had many batches of this beer...I just realized that I have not rated it previously. Poured from 22oz bottle into tall glass. Pours dark golden in color with thick creamy white head. Aroma is a dank hop smell with some notes of mango. Taste is semi-tropical hop notes. Nicely balanced bitterness with residual sweetness. Super beer.
