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.

Bottled on 3/14/17, enjoyed on 4/6/17

L: Beautiful amber color poured to YETI, medium sized white foamy head, good retention, solid lacing.

S: Bold and sharp aroma, fruity hops, grapefruit, very nice!

T: Taste follows the aroma, flavorful, bold, strong, thick, exciting, fruity, hop forward with a pleasingly rich, lightly bitter pine finish, malt is just right. Bottle says "Devastatingly Dank", I agree.

F: Chewy liquid, medium to full bodied, resinous. Not boozy at all for a 9.4 abv.

O: Very unique and awesome, every sip an experience and keeps getting better throughout the session; one of those beers that you never want to end. Even though I like the Tangerine version better, I can't think of a regular DIPA being any better. Also shared one with a friend, his first ever DIPA, and he really liked it; he didn't realize a beer could smell and taste like this... World class. Also paired very well with a Perdomo Craft Beer Series cigar! Life is good!

If my wife ordered this as a perfume, I would bang her clothes 2/14/15 appropriate

Absolutely amazing. Hop forward is an understatement. Amazing mouthfeel. Like a little citrus fairy couple dancing on my tongue!
