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.

A - Light and very clear bronze color. Medium-sized, tight, bubbly, smooth, creamy, white head. Good retention leaving a nice lacing.

S - Intense, sweet hop aroma. Tons of tropical and citrus fruit, including mango, pineapple, grapefruit, mandarin orange, peach and subtle lychee aroma. Subtle bready malt aroma in the background. Fairly sweet on the nose.

T - Similar to the nose. Tons of sweet, juicy hops. Sweetened grapefruit/mandarin orange along with mango, pineapple, peach juice flavor. Very subtle malt backbone provides a hint of sweetness as well. It starts out somewhat sweet; then it gets predominantly fruity but balanced; and it finishes slightly bitter with some flowery/herbal and citrus rind flavors. Linger fruit, especially citrus, flavor. Faintest whisper of pine hidden throughout.

M - Light body with slightly above average carbonation. Crisp but goes down smooth. Not very hefty or sticky at all.

D - Wonderfully balanced DIPA with the light and crisp feel of an IPA. Loads of hops that stay strong throughout. Not overly bitter; actually, somewhat sweet in a DIPA not cloying way. Very easy to drink with alcohol absolutely hidden.

Notes: Enjoy By 05/17/13. I really like the idea of a somewhat limited, very hoppy beer with a very clear date. Not something I will get all the time, but not something that will just sit around and take up space. This was well executed with the hops shining and the malt really just helping to showcase the hops. I really enjoy fruity, slightly sweet DIPAs and this hit the spot. Surprisingly light and easy to drink really paired well with the flavors. Lived up to the hype I was reading and definitely worth a try. Great treat for every now and then with no concerns about freshness.

On tap at Sonka's Irish Pub, Terre Haute, IN. Poured a wonderfully deep burnished gold with a bit of decent head and some nice lacing. Huge deep malt sweetness in the nose with a wonderfully piney-citrusness. Same with the flavor, a huge malt sweetness with great caramel tones and a nice citrus start and pine end to the hop flavors. A bit thick and rough, but not bad for a 9+% brew. Excellent stuff.

Very clean, golden color with a great head on top at first. sticky and gummy lacing on down the glass. Big and fat hop aroma right in your face. Grassy as all get out. Massive flavor assault in both malt and hops. Freshly mown grass, papaya, citrus with a touch of sugary sweetness. Really could not get any fresher. Excellent mouthfeel-just a huge body that is very well balanced against the enormous flavor. WOW! what a great beer all in. Reminds me of Moylan's Hopsickle just picked off the bine. Just killer all in. Had no idea about this beer until the guy in my local turned me on to it. Well worth finding, having and enjoying over and over and over....
