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.

It's a pretty good West Coast IPA, very Danky and has a nice clear look with a good head of foam. The citrus flavor is really there. Bottled 3-15-15 about 2 weeks out from today.

This has to be my favorite IPA!!!!! Tried 2.14.15 for the first time when my friend shipped it to me from San Diego to Chicago (we like to trade beers). Picked up 4.20.15, and this IPA didn't let me down at all. After pouring into my glass, I noticed many good floral notes right away. Had a really nice, thick head on the beer, with a really nice amber color. The taste was really great as well. Pick up a really nice hoppy taste, as well as a nice citus grapefruit taste. Wasn't very bitter at all. With it being 9.4% alcohol, was very surprised at how smooth this beer is. Myself and my friends are now huge fans of this beer!!!!!

Amazing! This review is for Enjoy By 4-20-15
Color was a very clear dark gold, with a finger of white head. Smell was beautiful, lots of grapefruit and some pine. Taste was a incredible. I was expecting something with more if a hop kick to it but this beer uses that to its advantage. Without the overpowering hops you get all the other amazing flavors going on.

I've truly never tasted a beer this fresh and flavorful. Incredible

Amazingly beautiful gold color with a solid grapefruit nose. Obviously dry hopped with motueka, one of my favorite hops. It was more resinous out of a bottle but on tap it was silky. You don't get the bitter until 3 seconds after your sip. What a solid beer. Wish this was on tap all the time.
