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.

floral and pine aroma backed up by caramel malts,some sweet fruit..real nice appearance creamy foamy half inch head in a golden liquid with hints of copper,plentiful lacing’’taste of tingly bitter and citrusy hops with just enough malt to make it smooth..slightly sticky on the palate otherwise full bodied plenty of carbonation long finish slightly dry..overall not a whole hell of a lot to complain about really delicious IPA even if I went way past the best by date (this was the 12 25 15 version today is 10 21 16)

Cerveza color ámbar turbio. Aromas a pino, cítricos y lúpulo. Al paladar se perciben notas a cítricos, lúpulos, cierto toque a pino y un amargor al inicio sutil que refuerza en el retrogusto. Excelente cerveza dentro de su estilo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of hops, skunk, dank hops, citrus, malts and tropical fruits. Bitter flavour, hops, malts and pine. Finish bitter hops, pine, resin and tropical fruits.
(from 66cL bottle @ RBBSG IV, the Hot and Sweaty Edition, Gent 2015, which happened to be exactly on 4 July 2015. Thanks for sharing, 77ships!)

justkoehn (168) - Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2016
Little head with strong lacing. Orange straw like color. Floral hoppy aroma. Sits lightly on the tongue with a bitter after taste. Very good DIPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Hopcat in Madison. Yellow ale citrusy, hoppy fresh clean ale. Super good

When I finally got to pick up a bottle of this it was a momentous day. I kept my 4-20-16 bottle for a shelf ornament. Everything I could want in an IPA. Medium, clean crisp body. Orange hued golden body. Piggy white head. Pine and citrus hops that are Dank as dank can be. (Takes me back to a more experimental time)... Anyhow my favorite IPA release of all time.

olsvammel (7274) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2016
Sample from a large bottle at Bishops Arms Örebro. This was 10-31-15. Hoppy smell with a malte base that made me think of sponge cake. Similar taste. Surprisingly hoppy. Very drinkable, even though the hops has faded some.

bergstaden (3154) - Røros, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2016
Golden with a white head - Good hop aroma with citrus - Good malt body to support a good hop profile that has citrus and bitterness - The hop and citrus goes into the finish - This was good

Ernest (7785) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle (07.04.16 version). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, caramel), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, grass, apricot, resin), with notes of alcohol, cotton candy, and plastic. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic. A rather plastic and candyish nose brings down the hop allure (which are mostly attractive albeit fairly raw/green as well), and in the mouth it’s rather acidic and harsh. A relatively average, somewhat clunky DIPA.

matty (443) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2016
22 oz. bottle. 07.04.16. Pours a clear dark gold color with a very brief white head. Aroma is citrus & stone fruit. Medium body, the taste is mostly citrus hops. Finish is a little dry. Great!
