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.

Enjoy by 10.25.13, consumed on 09.30.13

A: Very bright, crystal clear gold. No haze of any kind. Decent head that dissipated fairly quickly, nice lacing.

S: Huge tropical fruit, sweet citrus, as well as some underlying pine resin. Malt comes through as a neutral bready character with a little candy-like sweetness that binds with the hops. The aroma is explosive, intense even for the style.

T/M: Big, smooth hop bitterness that lingers all the way through, it is soon met with huge resiny tropical fruit, citrus and pine notes with underlying spicy, oniony complexities. The malt makes an appearance as well, giving a slightly sweet, bready backbone to the beer that works beautifully with the fruity hop notes. Hops just blast through the bone-dry finish.

Overall: Wow... wow. Big-time west-coast hop-bomb! The hops explode in this beer, and while that is getting more and more common, this one does it with incredible complexity and subtlety. You can pull out a huge array of hop flavors, and they all stand distinct, without a messy overall character. The balance is extraordinary, and that is an accomplishment in the West-Coast IPA style. The concept of this beer is awesome, get it to the customer as fast as possible and teach distributors about the importance of fresh IPAs. But, the execution was even better, Mitch Steele nailed this one.
