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.

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

bottled 10/4/13, enjoy by 11/12/13. Purchased on vacation at Poseidon's Pantry Gourmet on Chincoteague Island, VA.

Crystal clear light gold to orange with a strong 2 1/2 finger off white head. Amazingly thick, clingy lacing. Carbonation is evident.

Very fresh hugely hoppy aroma. Very herbal. Grapefruit and peel, pine and freshly cut wild herbs like homeopathic medicinals. It smells healthy.

Bitter homeopathics and grapefruit peel repeated and elevated compared to the aroma. Slight taste of alcohol early on. A fleeting hint of almost cinnamon in the back of the mouth. As the beer warms, the bitter characteristics mellow out and the sweet malts blend with the hops to mimic a tropical fruit punch.

Medium thick, not quite creamy. Peppery with light syrup. Very warming.

Incredible aroma and taste. My favorite double IPA ever. Even better than Firestone Double Jack.
