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.

04.20.14. Big dank nose. Impressive bitter hop bite up front, well balanced bready malt backbone, finishes with a lingering thick mouthfeel. Great brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4-20-14 bottle. incredibly fresh as it suggests, and has very strong notes of grapefruit with just the right bitterness, and even with a 9.4 abv its almost impossible to detect any alcohol. overall a damn fine beer

Yellow pour, small white head. Big hoppy aroma of citrus and spruce. Flavor is EXTREMELY hoppy; grapefruit, resin and grass. Tongue strippingly bitter and dry.

Pretty darn close to perfect. The smell is of chronic weed. Looks great, but taste even better! Citrusy, dank, funky, and delicious all at the same. In my top 3, definitely. Keep on drining...

Cory (350) - , California, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle best by 4/20/14. Brie cheese rind, mandarins citrus, light clean body, medium finish, high drinkability and high funk. Solid IPA, my personal opinion is that hype boosted these stats a little.

Lectvay (156) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Enjoy By 4.20.14. Bottled one week ago. Bright golden, smells like orange, grapefruit, big, bold, fresh hop flavor. Great!

Bottle pour. Liquid gold. Smells of just dankness. Upfront is a sharp boozey mellon. Tends to calm down across the middle. Then bursts into a huge bitter tropical fruit stand. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
