Huge hype for this brew and I went to 4 different liquor stores looking for this coveted nectar. Awesome graphic on the bottle and the premise of a drink by date only 30 days from bottle seems extreme. I was a little hesitant about the drinking only 2 weeks from the brew date but I had to give it a shot.
A - Beautiful golden- light orange color. Vibrantly clear with perfect fine white head with moderate lacing.
S - Very strong hop fragrance with tons of citrus fruit and every hop smell you would ever want all packed into one glass. Could smell it as I opened the bottle. Like a grownups candy it makes your mouth water.
T - Huge hop flavor with a full fruit hop character with citrus, tropical fruits, some pine, and dank resin hops to round out one of the most bold beers I've ever had. If you like citrus flavored hops by the bucket full this is a great beer. There is some malt and but almost no alcohol but it's all masked by the hop explosion on your taste buds. The bitterness seems clean and precise without detracting from the flavors. This is clearly a hops showcase.
M - Medium mouth-feel with perfect carbonation. Basically only the hops sit on the tongue but some how it isn't too much and I kept wanting to drink more.
Overall, probably one of the top 5 beers I've ever had. Great aroma, flavor, feel, appearance, and anything else you would desire in a DIPA. This brew is perfect for every hop head out there. This beer went down fast and it put me to sleep even faster. It's a limited release so you've got to get lucky to get a taste.

I am enjoying this deliciously fresh IPA and will definitely pursue the "Enjoy By" label in the future.
A = golden amber with a slight lemon cast. A foamy head that leaves a bit of lacing.
S = Hoppy flowery, light spice, and pleasant alcohol - not too alcohol forward.
T=Crisp and clean for an IPA. The bitterness tickles the back of the tongue in a good way. A slight malty sweetness.
M = Medium bodied and the 9.4% alcohol ensures crispness.
O = A delicious summer IPA, totally appropriate for the season. It would pair nicely with a barbeque meal, or any full flavored summer foods. Also tasty by itself!
