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.

"You gotta try this" - the truth

Also, the beer does change from release to release, but stays in the same vein - very delicious, fresh, floral and slightly piney. If you grab this past the enjoy by date, don't drink it. Remember, they're always releasing new batches so don't sell yourself short. Grab the freshest and go to town. Grab two if you can, and always enjoy with a hops loving friend. Especially if you're a malt person. They'll steer you straight.

Enjoy BY 12-26-14

Really Amazing clarity of this beer. Impressed by the lack of hop haze given the aroma. Big aroma maybe simcoe? Has that hint of cat pee aroma but pleasantly fresh. Light malt backbone and big hop resin flavor. Really drinkable fresh IPA simplistic in it's goodness. -cheers
