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.

The 12.26.14 was an excellent release, after having (and not reviewing) the 4.20.14. Great beer.

Had on tap at the Shepherd and the Knucklehead.

Crystal clear with a nice white head.

Hoppy floral bouquet.

Very nice beer (the 12/26/14)

It poured relatively flat and had no real lacing. The beer had a nice citrus smell. It was well balanced for an ABV of 9.4 percent, as the taste of alcohol was not over whelming. Definitely warming after a few sips. It just was not one of my favorites.
