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.

Golden color, looks mostly filtered. Head is a bit foamier than typical for an IPA, good persistence.

Deep, rich, bitter flavor. Very nice. Slightest hint of sweetness on the attack is slapped around by the grassy bitterness on the midpalate, never to be sensed again.

Nice mouthfeel, a bit on the richer side, consistent with the huge flavor.

Long, long, subtle bitter finish. Very nice indeed.

It's fresh and smooth on the alcohol end but a bit sharp on the bouquet for me

A fresh tasting IPA with lost of citrus and fresh cut grass. Very effervescent with a malty backbone fitting for an American DIPA. Very tasty, very fresh, but not especially interesting.
