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.

Enjoy by 4-20 from the tap on 4-12 was my first experience. Did not disappoint one bit. Only offerings in my area were draft and bombers and by the time I had it all the bombers were gone. Don't let it pass you by.

Seems right the dankest IPA they have made so far is set for 4:20, it also happens to be my birthday and there have been two before, each having a significant date for myself as the enjoy by - this is the third I've had and I'll be damned if it doesn't follow the third time charm (not to say the first two weren't awesome).

A: Pours a foamy sloth that keeps its creamy head, but dissipates into a crystal clear golden straw color. There's a few rising streams of tiny bubbles, and it looks oh so inviting.
S: Ho lord I cant wait to try this, it smells like passion fruit and pineapple with slight tangerine. I'd say Nelson Savin is in there, along with some other New Zealand hops, the sexy lupulins that they are.

T: Holy damn, there is so much hoppiness and boozyness laying on you all at once that it smacks you - but in a sexy bad girl way. The malts are clearly here as a necessity because they are surely not the life of the party. There is so much boozyness in this that it tastes like it was spiked with vodka or Sake - but, it does serve to peel the layer of hoppy stickiness that comes with it. It's like eating a chocolate lava cake, the richness or sweetness alone would be too much, but with the balance of the two extremes - it's got you thinking seconds. Those tropical hop notes really do come out in a way that mellows everything back to being on a Caribbean island drinking fresh squeezed juice from local fruit bounty - if those fruits also had obscene amounts of alcohol in them.

M: This is a full body DIPA through a trifecta, maybe even a quadfecta. The FG needed to balance the booziness give physical body while the limited carbonation doesn't pull any tricks trying to mask the heftiness. Then there's the alcohol tang which lets you know this isn't a game, you could equate it to a heavily spiked glass of jungle juice kinda feel. Lastly, the hopiness sticks to your tongue until the next sip utilizes the booziness to wash away that dose, only to be replaced by the newest gulps worth.

O: It's a full circle beer that hop heads will enjoy the whole way through, from opening and admiring, the first waft, each individual sip, to the final drop. This is absolutely one of the most pinnacle IPA's, let alone DIPA's, I have ever had the pleasure of coming across. It's intense and out on a mission, and that mission is to show just what a DIPA can be and do - and be it it does. Grade - 97

Beware though, this one is not for the faint of heart - Cheers!

Had the first release in 12oz. bottles 4/20-really enjoyed. Tried it in the 22 oz. and was a little disappointed(compared to the 12 oz.) Ive always enjoyed this beer but the 12oz. seemed to really capture the hop aroma and flavor. We won't talk about the price though-ridiculous

Dank, but not over the top like some reviewers mention. Actually wanted MORE dank!
