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.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Pours a nice golden clear color with a foamy/fizzy white head that lasts a good while. Aroma is intense of heavy hops and citrus with a nice solid fruit as well. Flavor is very hoppy with still a good citrus resin note of moderate bittersweetness and it has a nice bitter stringent finish. Mouthfeel is a solid smooth bitterness and carbonation is average. Overall this is a solid awesome IPA.

commonmac (1177) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2015 Tap pour in a pint glass at Butcher and the Boar. Aromatic IPA with a visually appealing golden color. Strong hop initial taste followed by sweetness of a double IPA. No real presence of alcohol which is surprising considering the ABV. Recommended. Consumed the Enjoy By 7.4.15 at New Bohemia on 6.12.15 again and will reinforce the high rating. Excellent beer.

Anova167 (360) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - OCT 11, 2013
10-25-13. Crystal clear light copper with a foamy head. Huge hop nose with notes of dank, pine resin and mango. Flavor is interesting...mango and a bit of malt. Bitterness is present but not overwhelming. Great fruity double that ends with a bit o alcohol burn

MrHangover (4349) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2013
Tap @ FreshCraft, Denver. 11-12-13 version. Pours a clear golden beer with a medium white head. Aroma is big citrus, pine and West Coast hops are highly represented in there. They mustve used tons of hops in this one. Flavour is exactly how I like my IIPA, perfect combo between hop juicyness and sweet malts. Epic brew, long lasting bier finish. Amazing.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 Rating #1 Bottle of 11.12.13 (8 3 8 3 18). An amber color with a foamy white head. A sweet hoppy aroma. So smooth and so rich in flavor and texture. Rating #2 Bottle of 12.13.13 (8 3 9 4 18). A golden amber color with a white head. A strong pine hoppy aroma with a rich resin finish. This is how I like my double IPAs.

hapjydeuce (999) - Carlsbad, California, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Bottled and on tap, numerous batches from numerous sources, finally getting around to a rating. What a great way to advertise an IPA. You can taste the freshness, no doubt. The aroma explodes with floral hop tones, passion fruit, citrus and lemongrass. Flavor follows with solid balance between grains, grapefruit bitterness, orange peel and pine sap. Finish is very clean, dry and peppery. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Really tasty.

10.25 Bottle. The look is super clear, good sized white head, and golden in color, and bright. The smell is big and fruity, stone fruits, florals, hops, grassy, and nice. The taste is crisp, hops, alcohol, fruits, floral, deep, and rich.

Enjoy by 11/12/13, purchased in Cincinatti, OH on first day of availability. Bottled 10/04/13 so 5 days ago. Nose on chilled freshly poured beer was pure dankness which I associate to simcoe based on some of my single hop simcoe homebrew experiments. As the beer warms the aromas explode open, I get orange peel, mango, grapefruit and pine resin, words cannot describe how amazing it smells. Taste is creamy, smooth, I get some slight alcohol on the finish but hidden very well for 9.4%. Beautiful light orange color. Light on IBUs, was expecting something closer to ruination at 100+, this seems less. For me this beer is all about the nose at the bottom of the glass as it has warmed, absolutely divine. Excellent beer, very happy I was able to buy an entire case of it!
