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.

badwhale (420) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2014
2.14.14 Bomber to glass mug. Pours a clear yellow, with an off white head that dissapates quickly. Smells a bit like a litterbox on the nose, some piney notes. Nice fresh hop flavors, really, really smooth. Can’t tell the AVB at all. Excellent.

ThreeCats (1013) - ISRAEL - JAN 13, 2018
Hazy copper color with a long lasting head. Aroma very fruity, sugared papaya, and lychee. Taste fruity, full, bitter, lychee again as well as pear and canned fruit cocktail. Second mouthful reveled a good dose of grapefruit as well. Very nice beer, surprisingly drinkable given it's abv.

Hoppy citrus aroma, hazy golden orange color, lacing that clings to the glass, strong hoppy flavor with citrus notes, clean smooth finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2017 Definitely fresh tasting with a great scent. Smooth with a bit of a sweet flavor that didn’t quite feel right. Don’t think it was worth the $16 I had to pay in Korea. How much was the air freight??

Scipio (1275) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2017
Enjoy By 12-25-17. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a medium, lingering white head. The aroma is very floral and consists of grapefruit, pine, lemon, and mild peach and tangerine. The taste has plenty of bitterness. Its still very floral, but now there is a solid herbal quality found. Strong in grapefruit with a complement of pine, as well as melon, biscuit, lime, and hints of caramel. Long grapefruit finish. Light to medium in body and with a slick texture. This is very easy drinking for a beer this potent. This is a classic.

B. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Full disclosure, I had the 'enjoy by 10/31/17' on 11/20/17 so it's possible it's not at peak freshness. That being said, it's full of flavor and not too bitter.
