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.

Had from a 22oz bottle. Pours a nice copper color with a white head that lasts for quite some time. It has a great nose to it. Has a nice hop nose to it. It has a nice strong but smooth bitterness to it. I definitely enjoy this beer. Not my typical style I go for. But one I would recommend to anyone. Just wish there was more product available. It was the 04/20/2014

Enjoy by 4/20/14. Clear light amber, golden, pour with a very nice head and long retention lacing. Nose of sweet citrus (mango, orange) over a light grapefruit and earthy dankness background. Light medium bodied with a slick texture. Normally carbonated with no effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is a blend of hop flavors over a slight biscuit sweetness with a low level of bitterness. It begins with the sweet citrus flavors which are soon overpowered by the dank earthy hop components. While complex, the flavor is heavily "dankcentric" - lol. On the smooth finish, you get a bit of biscuit sweetness flowing into the dankcentric vortex coupled with a nice residual alcohol tingle at the back of the throat. An exceptional beer that those which wonder what dank means should try.

a: Clear golden; served with a thick creamy head.

s: Resinous, pithy citrus, raw alcohol, a hint of juicy tropical fruit. All booze and hops.

t: Here again, booze and hop bomb. Extreme bitterness, relatively mild hop flavor. Pithy citrus; oily and resinous. Pretty hot finish. Abrasive in a good way.

m: Oily and smooth.

o: Really good for sure, but I've had quite a few DIPAs I like more in the last 6months or so.
