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.

Clear gold pour with a 1 finger, creamy white head. Huge tropical fruit, citrus and floral hop aroma, a little caramel and toast. Smells like a very fresh IPA. Tastes like one too. Lots of tropical fruit, citrus, a little pine and Amarillo - like spiciness. Some light caramel, toast and biscuit in there as well, but it’s really all about the hops. Medium body creamy entry, dry finish and fairly light carbonation. Awesome.

Bottle to pilsner glass. Enjoy by 4.20.15. Appearance: big white head. Hazy medium yellow. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, light grasses and pine. Taste is mostly hair spray, some lemon and pine. Medium carb. Not impressed, though I rarely am by an ipa.

650ml bottle from Whole Foods - Tribeca, New York. Thanks Jesse! Enjoy By 04.20.15. Bottled 03.16.15. Better late than never!

Clear orange/copper colour with a white head. Sharp tropical and fresh aroma. Flavour of grapefruit, orange, dry bitterness. Good stuff but expected a bit more. This is still fresh to me!

WisconsinBeer (715) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2015
Bottle. Enjoy by 4.20.15. Whoops, I’m a week late. Clear pale orange, minimal head. Danky resinious hop aromas. Bubble gum, citrus, floral for the hops profile. Otherwise relatively light bodied and easy sipping. Seems to have a bit of funk to it as well. Finish is dry and clean. Definitely feeling it after one. Good stuff.

Has a nice golden color. Has a sweet flavor with a bitter after taste. The after taste could be because it’s has a citrus/grapefruit taste.

This was 4/20 , on tap. It didn’t have the hop freshness that I was expecting, while still a decent beer, I was expecting more.

Very good sweet citrus and fruit smell, taste is strong alcohol off the bat, mellows quickly to fruity esters and sweetness, hops are almost all upfront
