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- 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.

Bottle from Value On Liquor Store, Vancouver
bottled 2015-05-30, enjoy by 2015-07-04

Hazy golden to light amber color. The aroma more than the flavor offers pungent, piney hops; the body is lean and the mouthfeel rather dry, yet its smooth; the malt is a bit biscuity although not exciting.
A good hop bomb. Initially I didnt feel at all the high octane, it tastes like a regular modern IPA, extra points for this!
