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.

4.4/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

22oz brown bottle with an obvious freshness date. 12.21.12

LOOK: Bright golden hue, towering froth

SMELL: Ruby red grapefruit, asian pear, evergreen, tobacco, fresh cut grass, lemon pith crackers, clean alcohol

TASTE: Medium bodied, smooth, a little slick, hop bitterness, warming alcohol, grassy, pithy, hop resin, guava, peppery, rose water, nutty grain, estery, long hoppy finish

Absolutely love the concept, I've have earlier versions both fresh and after their "Enjoy By" dates and the age sets in relatively quick. Impressive from start to finish, a hell of a lot of fun drinking this ale.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Great, strong IPA from start to finish....not everything is a perfect score, but this comes pretty darn close. Love the piney taste to this one. Lots left on the palate so i suggest drinking this one last or by itself. I had the 4.20.14 batch and I am reviewing based on that.

Serving type: on-tap
