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 bottle, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and beer fans. 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.

Enjoy By 05-17-13; Multiple pints. Pours gold with a white head. An explosion of citrus on the nose. Juicy melon, lots of bitter citrus flavor wise. Great beer.

5-17-13. Obviously I know this is past it’s "enjoy by" date, however I wanted to see how it fared. Pours a lovely gold with big craggy white head. Aromas are SUPER citrus hops and some grass with just a hint of tropical fruit sweetness. Flavors are just like the nose though there is a line of striking bitterness right in the mid-palate but it fades and this beer gets back on course. Palate is perfect, not too heavy for this big beer and it feels much more quaff-abale than one would imagine. Overall, this was amazing when it was fresh. Probably 4.5+ especially on draft. It has faded just a little but what put me off the most was the very sharp bitter flavor, but even then it was still super drinkable. The best about the Enjoy By series, they have improved this beer with every release and this was the best to date, if they make improvements on the next one look out Pliny, Heady, and Kern cause this is coming for your spots.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 Had it on tap at Quenchers in Logan Square Chicago. Poured a hazy orange color with a thin head and uneven lacing. The aroma is a thunder bolt from Zeus, hop floral goodness. And the taste is hop euphoria, be careful, it’s a 9.5 Amendment, after tasting out of a bottle i had to up this rating. Delightfully delicious!!

JK (5807) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2013
On tap at Pracna. Dark copper color. Very fresh and sort of a wet-hop quality to the beer. Tons of hops, flowers and a little pine. It is sweet and there is a lot of malt in here, but the hops are more prominent. Great beer.
