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 golden color with a thick white fluffy head that lingers with excellent lacing. Just about the perfect look for a dipa. Smell is very aromatic with the obvious hoppy floral you would expect with hints of spice and onion like notes. The taste hits right away with hops and bitterness. Some maltiness as it warms, but not quite as much as you might expect. The feel is spot on with a creamy initial feel and slight carbonation. Overall this is a stone beer with plenty of hops but it drips right off into the bitterness and I would hope for a bit more complexity. Not dissapointing but not the best I've had.

A: Copper straw and unlike any DIPA I have ever seen. This really looks like a craft lager.
S: Floral young pine cone, sweet ruby red grapefruit, white sugar cane.
T: Fresh wet hop varietals, young nectarine, ruby red grapefruit. This is an amazimgly fresh beer that is bottled for maximum wet hop enjoyment. This is the closest you can get to fresh added wet hoped beers without being at a special beer event.
M: Absolutely perfect. Full and robust. Slick and mouth sapping delicious.
O: This is a game changer for bottled IPA's. You are obligated to try..buy and enjoy.

I had the 07.04.15 edition of the IPA. Not my favorite IPA, but a great go-to drinkable beer. Very clear golden color and good balance of hops. Curious to see if there is much variation from date to date.

Pours a honey / light Amber color. Has aroma of citrus peel & resin. Flavor is citrusy and piny. Good balance with a nice aftertaste of hops. Overall pretty good IPA, I enjoyed it
