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.

Enjoyed 12-26-14 immensely. It was odd to drink a hoppy IPA that smooth and without bite. 2-20-15 is also good but I unfortunately agree with the onion comments.

(Enjoy by 2/14/15) 22oz bottle poured into Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours a clear golden color (lighter than I would have expected), two finger head, noticeable carbonation bubbles. Resilient lacing. Inviting classic citrus IPA scent. Crisp, medium-bodied feel with a little bite from the carbonation. Wonderful hoppy taste but not overly bitter, has some malt backbone that gives some balance. But still very hop-centric. Overall, fantastic. (9.5)

I like what they did with this beer. The marketing on this beer is different but awesome! It really brings people to by this beer just because of just the label itself! Good buy.

(Enjoy by 2.14.15)
Appearance - Bomber poured into a tulip glass. Beautiful golden copper with a nice fluffy white head. Great lacing and lots of clarity.

Smell - Very earthy, fruity, dank, floral.

Taste - More earthy than many IPA's. A little citrus. Not very much grapefruit. Very well balanced beer, not bready but the hops don't overwhelm. A good bit of pine. Reminds me of wet soil and pine in a forest.

Feel - Unbelievably drinkable and smooth. The carbonation bite is toned down a bit which is a plus for me. Sessionable (LOL)?

Overall - An incredible beer. You can really taste the freshness. I love beers that taste pure (no chemical wank, etc.). This is probably the one of the most "pure" tasting beers I have ever had. Highly recommended.

Pours a beautifully, deep golden hue with extremely good clarity. White, fluffy head with excellent lacing. First thing you notice about this DIPA is it's wonderful fruity, floral aroma. Very interesting flavor that transitions from malt to hop bittering with the PERFECT balance leaving no unwanted aftertaste; it even provides a deep earthy note toward the end that is very nice. The carbonation is just so so to provide a great mouthfeel. Interest lay enough, it is 9.2 ABV without tasting boozy. Drinks like a session, so be careful. Nothing bad I can say, except with I would've bought more!

Insanely drinkable, with a very fresh taste and aroma. Wish I could hold onto some until summer, it would be a perfect afternoon porch sipper. Can't wait to sample future batches!

Enjoy By 02.14.15 (11 days from bottling)

Clean fluffy head, clear amber liquid.
Citrus (grapefruit) forward, strong floral backing.
Following nose with strong citrus front, floral/earthy notes push heavily in through the mid and finish. No alcohol detectable. Strong onion end.
Superb mouthfeel, just indescribable how nice this is to drink.
Freshness is key with this series. Everything is extremely clean and distinct, no harsh transitions or unwanted lingering. A bit too much onion for me (score dropped a bit) but otherwise excellent.
