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.

12.05.14 version. Pour from a 22. This one seems to have more tropicals than citrus profiles found in earlier versions. Not sure if they tweak the contents for different batches, or if I am under the influence of what I ate before drinking this. The hop profiles were, as expected and hoped for, the dominant flavors early and across the tongue. Finish had a little boozy element to it. Would rather that be less pronounced (beer was at good temp, not too cold). Looking forward to next batch.

4.20.14 version: also tropicals up front but with a nice grapefruit in the finish, but with a boozy little pop right at the back announcing the 9+ABV.
