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.

airrick2003 (862) - Louisiana, USA - APR 5, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2015 Appearance: mostly clear gold color, pours with a large off white head that takes a while to settle, excellent head retention Aroma: citrus, grass, pine, hints of bread, the hops are definitely king here, dank, Taste: citrus, pine, strong bitterness, a strong alcohol abv is concealed well, spicy Palate: soft carbonation, leaves a bitter aftertaste, moderate mouthfeel, alcohol is there,crisp Overall: this is the 4-20-14 version, there is something unique about this beer, something that tastes different than most beer, it’s very good, just wish the abv was lower because it goes down easy. ETA: had a 4-20-15 version and it was also delicious. Would say that the 2014 review is pretty accurate for me 10-31-15 absolutely amazing aroma, very very dank, grass, nice head retention,

I really enjoyed this 4-20-2014 DIPA. Clear golden color with nice white head. Great hop aroma with lots of pine resin and citrus. Very bitter finish that paired great with a pizza.

Tstamba (722) - Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2015 On draft at Victoria Gastropub. 2/14/14 Hazy golden hue with minimal head or lacing. Big hop presence full of citrus pink grapefruit and pine resin... Flavor follows well balanced with some booze on the back end. I really like this one! Update on batch 9/20/14, even better than I remember, truly solid DIPA. Update 10/31/15, continues to impress, consistently great beer...

sodakotakid (230) - Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA - APR 3, 2014
pours a nice orange/copper with a big fluffy white head. This is what an IPA should be to me. There is a lot of hops, pine and citrus, mostly grapefruit.
