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.

Rating 7/4/16

I used to love these, but they have really gone downhill, with 10/31/14 being the last amazing one.

This one comes off as all over the place, when i think the aim was "complex". It is very hoppy, very layered...good enough mouthfeel. Little boozy. Little chewy. I think in 2016 this is only a slightly above average double ipa. I do appreciate this release, and happy stone continues to do it. They are never "bad" and always interesting. Im just not sure it needs 27 hops


Edit- i noticed someone else said better from bottle than poured, i agree. My grade from bottle would be solid 4/5

Pours a very lightly hazy pale copper in color with a finger of white head. Very hoppy, pine, some citrus, and a bit of tropical fruit. Taste follows the nose and is hugely hoppy, the flavors are somewhat less distinct than the aromas but tropical fruits are more pronounced here but pine and citrus are still present. I get a bit of booze here as well but it's not unexpected given the 9.4% ABV. Good mouthfeel, medium bodied and moderate carbonation. Overall a very good beer but I will say that I found it far more enjoyable straight from the bottle as opposed to from a glass.
