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.

Cracked a 4-20 open last night.

Pours a light golden, clear body. Head is sticky and fluffy white goodness.

Aroma is hops, as one would expect. Grapefruit, some mango, pine, persimmon, floral. Not a whole lotta malt going on. Soft biscuit. For a dIPA the balance isn't there, but it's not a bad whiff

Taste is the aroma. Hops. Floral, citrus, some pine. A bit of spice and biscuit get trampled. For a dIPA this misses that mark. Sure, loads of hops, but no balance and it's really not that intense, as far as the feel goes. But, this is a beer meant to be imbibed fresh, so I take that into consideration.

As a result, the difference between this fresh beer and other non-fresh IPAs isn't all that great. Sure, it's a very nice beer. Which characteristics suffer with age, and to what extent? We'll never know...or will we?

Enjoy By: 2-15-13
A: pours a clear light gold with a half inch of white head that fades to a small pool
S: smells of pine, grapefruit, earthy hops, and tropical fruit.
T: tastes of earthy hops, pine, citrus, a bit of tropical fruit, some alcohol and a slight sweetness to bring a bit of balance. very light caramel sweetness flavor. aftertaste is oily hops and pine resin and just a bit of sugary sweetness on the very back end
M: lighter side of medium in the mouth with slightly prickly carbonation. slightly drying at first but then quickly juicy
O: Very good beer. Heavily hopped and fantastic hop flavors. malt provides just a bit of balance but allows the hops to really shine. I wanted to get to this one sooner but tylenol and beers don't mix well.
