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 label, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and consumers. 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.

Poured from a 22.oz bottle into Portsmouth tulip glass.

The color is a deep darker orange with a finger of white head with some nice lacing left on the glass. There a cloudy look to this beer that blocks the light out a bit does have a slight yellowish hue in the margins.

The smell is very piney hops flavored bringing a spruce aroma. There is a saturated clementine aroma that brings a bright citrus aroma that is hard brings visions of pulp to mind.

The taste of this beer is citrus at first but as it goes toward the back of the younger it pastes a layer of pine flavor hops that have slight sting as the go down. A slight scrape of the tongue by the bitterness of the hops is felt but feels like a battle scar since there is also tinge of pleasure there as well. At the corners of the mouth there is a nice slight tangerine flavor that resides there for a short time.

The feel of this beer a has a nice fullness that feels like it surrounds the pallet but does not engulf the entire mouth. This feels like a big IPA but does not hit hard either but slips into a push into hops here, there, and everywhere.
