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 light golden brown with a 1.5 inch head.

Smell...SUPRISE!! fresh grapefruit and slight hints of alcohol.

After a couple mouthfuls I was left with an average amount of lacing.

Smooth Hoppy front that lasts a bit longer with hoppy back end.

Finish is malty and clean

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Served from: 22 oz bottle poured into a tumbler pint.

Appearance: Clear, golden/copper color, adequate lacing on the glass, decent head retention.

Smell: grassy, floral hops, reminiscent of a cut lawn on the Fourth of July

Taste: Aggressively hopped, sweet pale malt taste, citric dryness followed by a VERY subtle Anise/licorice note

Mouthfeel: dry, without coating the mouth. Refreshing finish with a touch of sting on the tongue.

Overall: An American Double IPA which succeeded in providing what it intended to provide: A full bodied hop-headed delight just in time for the 4th of July. The taste could really only be described as "Fresh" with plenty of herbal hop aroma and taste, but with an undeniable malty sweetness to balance the more assertive flavors of the hops. I personally enjoy this one more than Stone's "Enjoy by 4.20.14 IPA", despite that being an excellent brew. Perfect complement to the dog days of summer, in the midst of job and apartment hunting, just hoppy enough to keep me awake. Intending to purchase again prior to Independence Day.

Cheers,
~JPS
