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 12/16/14; bottled on 11/13/14.

Actually had 3 of these on separate occasions. 2 were great; 1 was completely overrun by a smell and taste of onion.

I really enjoyed the 10-31-14. I would give it 10-31-14 a 4.5.

The 12-26-14 not so much. Missing are citrus smells. It smelled more like an wet sock with a slight hint of skunk. And the taste wasn't much better. I actually poured the 2nd half down the drain.

Had a family member ship me a case of 8.16.14 from the east coast. Totally worth it. Wonderful IPA demonstrating notes of citrus, pine, sweet. Balanced with nice carbonation. Truly enjoyable.

Tried to 12.26.14 on draft. Still a great IPA, but did not have all of the pronounced scents and flavors as the 8/16 version.

Recently downed some 4.20.15 - wonderfully dank and piney. Absolutely delicious, and went down too easy for such a big IPA.
