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.

My bottle of this states enjoy by 12-21-12 (tasted on 11-24-12). Interesting marketing in this regard--absolutely in your face about when the beer will start to fade. In Boston, my favorite store had only two cases available. Both were kept in back for the "regulars". Good idea to produce just enough for us beer geeks.

Solid three finger head that settles slowly leaving plenty of chunky lace on the glass. The liquid is nearly clear with a neutral gold color.

Strong evergreen aroma with a bit of citrus; some white pepper...all from hops! I cannot detect any smells from the malts. Still, this is inviting.

Starts with a mild pale malt flavor. This is completely gone once I swallow--a complete hop bomb with an expected never-ending aftertaste. If you love your beer very bitter, you'll love this one. The body is relatively weak when compared to other DIPAs. The high carbonation adds to this effect.
