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.

Still drinking the 12/25/15 batch... part of the reason is that it isn't for me.... more bitter than I like a golden color to it and more of a dank smell that I really enjoy.

World class for a reason. No doubt the freshest beer I've had (except at the local brewerys). I could pick this one out of a crowd of IPAs any day.

I am really not that big on IPA's anymore but this is an awesome beer. The ABV is a plus, very smooth, and great hoppy flavor.

Friend gave me several bottles because, you know, they were outdated. This was still a first class imperial IPA. The hop character was unique, exceptionally dank, and outstanding. No complaints at all. So if you are well past the date.... don't throw it out. Give it to me.
