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.

Pours a clear, soft orange color, with a 2 finger of white head. Left lots of lace.

The aroma is Floral and fruity, citrus and tropical fruits. Some mango and pineapple. Not much in the way of malts, but that's probably intentional.

Lots of tropical fruits, pineapple, orange, lemon zest, slight bready malts, touches of pine too.

The feel is upper medium, slightly crisp with a good, not-overbearing feel to it.

I'd say this is a super successful IPA. I love the premise and assurance that you will be getting awesomeness. Bravo

Golden colored and pristine clarity. Moderate head retention. Beautiful. Lots of of busy carbonation bubble business. Intensely pine aroma, very freshly picked and it shows in the nose. Taste is intensely hop oriented. Did I just bite into a hop straight off of the vine? Wow! This is truly a unique and wonderful experience. Must try.
