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.

Look - Drank a 10/31 the other night and haven't put together my little notes for this until now.

Look - A gold with a nice white head.

Smell - I detected a nice punch of fruits, mostly oranges and pines.

Taste - The taste is very similar to the smell.

Mouth feel - A quick kick and it was enjoyed.

Overall - I like the fact that they brew dates that are expected to be drunk before a certain day. This pleases me because it gives you a fairly obvious "drink before date" to experience the best of what the beverage has to offer.

Had the 7/4/16 version near the end of June.

Poured into a snifter glass.

A golden yellow with a nice one finger of head. Not much lacing from this one.

Smell is mostly grapefruit and some pine blended with it. The pine starts to become stronger after it settles.

The taste goes along with the smell with grapefruit and citrus followed by the pine notes. A little sweetness in there and the alcohol starts to come through. Tasted better about the halfway point.

More complex fell than I expected. The hops finally kicked in with some nice bitterness in there. All of it balanced nicely.

A great beer to have fresh. Not sure this one would age well.
