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.

Bottle (thanks finol). Grassy and citrusy with elderflower notes. Drinkable and rather light. Well hidden alcohol.

plain gold. Aroma dank cheesey hops. I can sense resin on my lips before it arrives. Very snappy carbonation, spruce, palt for size malt bill, mid sweet. Balanced, mouth tingling reisin.

Large bottle. Superior IPA, solid on all counts. Deserving of the high ratings. No lacing, minor foaming. Light on the tongue, refreshing. To repeat....

On tap @ HO1K Beers. Enjoy by 04.20.16. Pours a clear straw-amber color with a white head of foam. Nice aroma of pine and citrus. Slightly bitter with a good citrus flavor. Pretty standard and nothing special but it was enjoyable. OK but not my favorite.

LouisP (464) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
Bouteille 355 mL, version du 04-20-2016 Couleur : Blonde, belle mousse au-dessus du liquide et une bonne effervescence pour couronner cette bière. Arôme : Au nez, on distingue un houblon assez résineux, peut-être également assez floral. Un peu agrumé au nez également. Goût : Au goût, c’est très west coast : amertume prononcée, très résineux, on à l’impression de goûter à de l’écorce d’arbre en quelque sorte! Pour une bière a 9.2%, on goûte très peu l’alcool. Appréciation : C’est pas mal fait, mais un peu standard, rien de spécial neressort de cette bière, si ce n’est que le taux de buvabilité assez élevé pour une bière aussi forte en alcool. Loin d’être mauvaise, comprenons-nous bien, mais on s’attend à plus d’une bière aussi bien cotée.

rajendra82 (1078) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2016
The beer poured a lovely shade of golden, with one a crystal clear body. The head was a little small, barely measuring at one finger thick. The aroma was very dank, smelling of grapefruit and pine resin. The taste was superlative. I was blown away by the assault of the dank piney and citric hops strong enough to strip teeth enamel. The hops were backed by simple pale malts that provided just a touch of sweetness. This was a sticky hop bomb, and coated my tongue, and throat going down, providing a long lingering hop aftertaste. The alcohol was well hidden, making this very drinkable despite the near double digit ABV. This is an essential beer if you are a hophead. I thought I had already reviewed it before now, but I was wrong about that. You can bet this is going to be a go to purchase for me from now on.

04.20.2016 edition, enjoyed on 04.09.2016

04-20-2016 batch. Really punchy. Grapefruit, hops, a bit of cereal-like malt. Crisp and slightly bitter. Full, dry, and refreshing. A great IPA.

beer-yum (1654) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 4, 2016
The 04/20/16 edition. Citrus pine aroma in a yellow gold pour. Laid back hop forward balance with a breads fruit body and just a hint of the strength. Finish is sustained and sweet to start but ends up cleaning the palate for the next taste. A great beer for the strength - but Their regular strength brews are better balanced and more to my taste.

polo_marco (332) - milton, Vermont, USA - APR 3, 2016
Smells of sweet juicy hops. Nice gold amber color. Taste of pineapple and mango followed by sweet malty finish. Med body with perfect crisp carbonation. One of the best IPAS I’ve had in a month or two.
