COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle enjoy by 7/4/14. Light amber pour with a long lasting half inch white head. Strong hoppy aroma. Taste is a little sweet at first but becomes more bitter as you continue to drink. Carbonation is light and body is medium to heavy.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 Enjoy by 7/4/14 Really enjoyed this draft over the bottle I had the other week. Clear medium orange amber with a big frothy lasting white head. Big hoppy aroma. Big hop flavor. Lighter full body. Big fresh pine. Dank. Grapefruit. Floral. Some tropical. Caramel. Fair sweetness to balance the firm bitterness. Oily and soft. Palate adjusts after a few sips, but finish maintains its strong bitter hoppy character. Surprisingly smooth for its size, no booze. Really excellent.

jefcon (1400) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Hops with dirt on ’em. Sour apricot, bitter grapefruit. A bit of woodsy smoky malt. Long, bitter finish. Jammy, fruity, dry, complicated fruit and hops. I can taste the rhizomes, it’s so fresh.

Handypaul (222) - - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a creamy white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus. Medium to heavy bitter, light to medium sweet, flavors of grapefruit, hop bitterness balanced against background malts. average carbonation leading to a long bitter finish. Hides the alcohol very well.

kurt_alaska (3) - Little Rock, USA - JUN 9, 2014 does not count
enjoy by 07-04-14 poured from bomber. light amber color with thin head and small amount of lacing on the glass. strong aromas of grapefruit, pine and mint, tangerines, a little lime and ginger. taste is slightly hot from alcohol and medium-light bitterness. Hop flavors are what you would expect from the nose, citrus, pine, but not as potent. A little bit of spice and some biscuity malt flavors. body is okay with smooth carbonation and good weight to it. what you would expect. overall i greatly enjoyed this beer and I am glad i got my hands on it so soon after its release.

Lizardking3 (109) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Enjoy by 07/04/14. Pours an extremely clear golden honey color, small head that fizzles off quick, leaving a clinging ring of white. The aroma, oh the aroma! Smells of Pine and citrus slap you in the face, extremely pungent in the best way. Taste is immediately bitter and then transitions into those wonderful citrus and pine flavors you smell. Comes full circle to finish bitter. Very drinkable but the 9.4 ABV is very present. Loved this
