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.

Smell is pure pink grapefruit. Sweet, citrus, light, maybe a little saline. Taste is what I expect... Pink grapefruit. A touch of grain, and sugar. Sugar. Sugar. I taste pith, a bit of spice... Not as bitter as I expected or wanted... But that sweetness is wonderful.

Update with By Pi.
Even at the end of the time period...last day...still very good. All the flavors of great hops, citrus and floral, and strong alcohol just flow right together and fill the mouth will fullness and an easy creaminess. Nothing stands out but nothing takes a back seat.

Extremely well made solid IPA. Surprisingly easy drinking. Awesome on tap. Amazing marketing strategy but easily accomplished with such a great beer.

S-quite dank for my liking, but I supposed this constrast to the taste provides interest and appeal
A-golden cleat and light, white head that dissipates to nothing eventually, nice amount of lacing
M-carbonation right on and does not detract from bitterness and other enjoyable qualities of this beer
T-is it Citra? Mosaic? Simcoe? One of those three comes out to play, I think it's Citra, but I am far from a connaisure. Great IIPA, very drinkable too bad it 'expires'! Highly recommend.

Aroma is an intense mixture of dankness and tropical fruits. Pineapple, mangos, apricots, peaches. Dank stinging bitterness to the nostrils, onion, a slight piney aroma in there as well.

Sweet crackery malts, bright tropical fruits, slight citrus orange, piney resin, onion, dank. Its got it all!

Fantastic brew! Top of the line in terms of Double IPAs i have had.

Hard to review a brew who's shelf life is so short. This review is for the 2/14/15 enjoy by date. Light golden color which is unusual for a double IPA, smelled a little bitter and piney, taste was quite good, less hoppy and lighter feel than expected for a double. Didn't linger long on the tongue. Deceptively light for a double, easy to drink.

Enjoy By 02.14.15. It was excellent. I am not generally a fan of their IPA (or the Delicious IPA) but this was fantastic and would drink again and again.

This was pretty darn good and fresh tasting. If I'm being honest with myself I like the Ruination better as crazy as that sounds.

Was a bit past the date so got it cheaply. Solid anyway. I will be visiting this beer again.
