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.

Presentation: 22 oz. brown bottle with the 05/16/14 "Enjoy By" date right on the label. Served in a Sam Adams pint glass.

Appearance: Perfect clear, bright, gold color. It develops a robust head that quickly goes away and leaves just a thin ring. The lacing is incredible, covering the whole glass and slowly sliding away.

Smell: Big citrus, hop aromas of pine, grapefruit and spices attack the nose. The smell is very good and very important to the overall experience.

Taste: The citrusy grapefruit taste is right at the front along with some pine and spicy pepper notes. There's also an alcohol sting at the end thanks to a 9.4% ABV that gets stronger and more noticeable as the beer warms.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. It's smooth and very refreshing when cold. It only gets smoother as it warms up.

Overall: It was a big deal for Puerto Rico's craft beer scene getting this. Believe the hype, it's simply incredible in every aspect. Hophead or not, you need to give this beer a try. It should be noted that in order for this beer to be enjoyed fully it should be had slowly. The taste and texture both change the warmer it gets.

An excellent and we'll balanced DIPA. A fresh and pleasant scent, hinting at fruit. It does not disappoint at first taste, exploding with heavy fruit, especially grapefruit, and plenty of upfront hops. A bit of maltiness helps balance the brew, and masks the alchohol. The perfect amount of bitterness on the finish. Very impressive, reminiscent of Bells HopSlam. My second bomber, and not my last.
