You have in your hands a devastatingly fresh double IPA. While freshness is a key component of many beers- especially big, citrusy, floral IPAs- weve taken it further, a lot further, in this IPA. You see, we specifically brewed it NOT to last. Weve not only gone to extensive lengths to ensure that youre getting this beer in your hands within an extraordinarily short window, we made sure that the Enjoy By date isnt randomly etched in tiny text somewhere on the bottle, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and beer fans. Instead, weve sent a clear message with the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.

Alright, Ill finally rate this. Still not 100% sure if these are all the same or not. But who cares. Its good. Enjoy by 12/26/2014, so Im a little late, but its still awesome. 22 Oz bottle. Pours a golden with a lot of head and lace. Big, thick and creamy body with a nice fresh hop citrus aroma. Great hops all around here. Awesome IPA.

a very good fresh ipa. Once opened you get citrus hops but it blows off quickly. Followed by a boozy musty smell. Reminds me of grapefruit pith. Appearance is cloudy yellow with small white bubbles for a thin head Taste is of grapefruit and cutsl citrus hops. Nice long well balanced finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Consistently one of the best beers I have ever had. If you love a strong hops flavor in an IPA, this is the gold standard. Each batch seems to taste a little different, which makes each one fun to try. Overall, the taste is amazing.

Sticky palate wrecking goodness. Citrus, pine, and everything else that comes out when way too many hops are added. The hops even stick to your mouth and throat in a hoppy way, similar to the burn of booze. Maybe the malt could be a bit cleaner and the beer a bit further fermented (the sugar is still there fighting to be tasted under the hops). Well into unmeasured IBU land, SoCal still knows how to deliver a class A hopbomb.

12.26.14. Tons of pine hops. A great balance with the malts. Not as hoppy as you would expect. Awesome.

lawman834 (268) - Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2014
12.26.14 Batch - Heavy on the pine. Floral. Citrus peel. Particularly dry for the style but also not of the charts with IBU. Fairly balanced.

Really good. Mild Hoppy nose. Smooth with an ever so slight malt bitter finish. Big fan

czar (8313) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
(enjoy by 12.26.2014) pours hazy very light golden with a small white cap showing some retention and lacing. loads of melons, litchee, passionfruit, pumpkin meat, candied grapefruit peel and skin, pale doughy maltiness - honeyed and never sweet, peppery and never perfumey booze, clean yeast. light carbonation, medium body - oily, balanced spicy-tropical-citrusy finish. great modern ipa from hop pioneers. much enjoyed!

Bomber into a pint glass, I really like this fresh hop stuff. Smells incredible and tastes so much better than most bottled IPA. Not to mention 9.4% which is also impressive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
