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.

On tap, pours a clear gold with an off white head. Smells of hops and citrus and pine. Taste is a nice citrus flavor with a good hop bite. Real light too, surprising.

4/20. Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is pungent hops and not much else but your not really looking for anything else with this beer. Flavor is again a all hop blast. There are some malts in the backround to tighten things up. Tasty hop bomb of a beer. Here’s a beer gimmick that works.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2013 8.02.13 version (drank on 7.22.13). Absolutely incredible aroma! Completely different animal than the 4.20. Very floral aroma with super balanced but sharp citrus flavor. Sweet and wet finish. Amazing wet hopped beer! 4.20.13 version (drank on 3.26.13). Light golden with thin white head. Aroma is very piney - not a lot of citrus hop. Taste is very straight and bitter...not much sweetness to balance. Almost has a sort of dry, burnt hop taste to it...or a charcoaley bite. Finishes a bit dry. Edit -- on tap this beer really opens up. Much more balanced - the pine flavor really smooths out and becomes more drinkable.

One of the best beers I’ve ever tried. Sweet, piney, citrusy godness. Very impressive. Damn.

HoppyAlesToYou (156) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Some caramel, but mostly hop related aromas. Some floral and spruce, but mostly herbs and resin. Looks pretty, is soft on the palate, and is every bit as bitter as the aroma teases. Really good DIPA, it reminded me of Heady Topper. Thought the good Lord had dropped a bag on me. Is this liquid gargoyle ganj?

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2013
On draught at Cole’s. son of a BITCH this is good! Cloudy gold, solid lasting white head - aroma is lightly fruity, mostly massive resin and cannabis - fantastic! Taste is floral, resin and oddly like raw cinnamon - some alcohol. Average body, solid carbonation, longish dry crisp finish. Dangerous, so good.

ajnepple (1995) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2014 22 oz bottle. 4.20.13 version. Pungent citrus hop aroma, sweet, fruity and fresh. Medium body with a dry crisp feel. Fresh hop forward flavor with very light malt sweetness. Smooth and clean flavor that hides the alcohol well. Incredible fresh aroma, a must try. Update: 07.04.14 was slightly less enjoyable. A little more resinous perhaps. Probably 3.9 ish.

trujahwarrior (504) - Monroe, Washington, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Pours a clear golden orange color with a thick white head that leaves great lacing. Smell of pine, resin, citrus and floral. Tastes of all the same things with the citrus shining through the most. It’s extremely hoppy as well. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation and a bone dry finish. Overall this is one of the best double ipas I’ve tried gives pliney and 90 minute a run for their money. I’ll definitely be seeking this out again.

charule (953) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2013
4/01/2013 batch on 3/25/2013. Bottle. Poured two even glasses of yellow orange with two finger head. Very piney citrus aroma. Fresh green hop taste with smooth undertones. Not overwhelming smack you in the face stuff. Enjoyable.

EtTuCthulhu (991) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAR 24, 2013
The 4.20.2013 edition at 9.4% ABV. The aroma is overwhelmingly resin and floral hops, and the appearance is golden amber with very little white head. The taste is quite bitter and slightly sweet, and the palate combines a long bitter finish, soft carbonation, oily texture, and medium body.
