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 label, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and consumers. 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.

Enjoy By 02.14.15 (consumed on 1/24/15)

This is always fantastic. Nose and taste are very hop forward with a strong piney, flowery presence. Body is light, carbonation is active. I always grab two or three of these when they become available, totally worth it.

22 oz bottle, tulip

02.14.15. Edition

A – Light to medium amber and highlighted orange. About an inch of slightly off-white foamy head with moderate to long retention. Mostly clear.

S – A bomb of grapefruity hops and some bitter citrus, like dried lime. Lightly grainy-sweet malt with a touch of caramel. Very smooth.

T – A ton of grapefruit with a touch of acidic bite, papaya and lime zest also in the mix. Malt mostly provides a strong backbone, light bread crust. Waves of hop bitterness come in and stay through the finish.

M – Very high bitterness, assertive, but high carbonation and enough malt sweetness to hold it up. A hop assault, but a very balanced beer, considering. Moderate to full body. Moderately dry.

O – When I think of the quintessential American Double IPA, this is basically what I’m thinking of. Huge hop bouquet and flavor with strong hop bitterness, and the malt body to hold it all up. Excellent.

Enjoy by 2/15/15 release. Pours straw crystal clear yellow. Slight carbonation. Thick head with lots of foam. Excellent lacing retention. Aromas of pine trees and musk. Lemongrass. Good mouthfeel. Lots of citrus tastes. Nose is all pine and grapefruit. Astringent bitter notes. Mid-palate it breaks to lemons, grapefruit, and some coriander spice. Back palate is a slight cinnamon bread malt and some bitter lemon notes. Lots of grapefruit and a slight alcohol bite. Excellent. Crisp, clean aftertaste. Some more bitter grapefruit and lemongrass. A hint of pepper and spice. 4.5 out of 5. Excellent.

Enjoyed 12-26-14 immensely. It was odd to drink a hoppy IPA that smooth and without bite. 2-20-15 is also good but I unfortunately agree with the onion comments.

(Enjoy by 2/14/15) 22oz bottle poured into Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours a clear golden color (lighter than I would have expected), two finger head, noticeable carbonation bubbles. Resilient lacing. Inviting classic citrus IPA scent. Crisp, medium-bodied feel with a little bite from the carbonation. Wonderful hoppy taste but not overly bitter, has some malt backbone that gives some balance. But still very hop-centric. Overall, fantastic. (9.5)

I like what they did with this beer. The marketing on this beer is different but awesome! It really brings people to by this beer just because of just the label itself! Good buy.

(Enjoy by 2.14.15)
Appearance - Bomber poured into a tulip glass. Beautiful golden copper with a nice fluffy white head. Great lacing and lots of clarity.

Smell - Very earthy, fruity, dank, floral.

Taste - More earthy than many IPA's. A little citrus. Not very much grapefruit. Very well balanced beer, not bready but the hops don't overwhelm. A good bit of pine. Reminds me of wet soil and pine in a forest.

Feel - Unbelievably drinkable and smooth. The carbonation bite is toned down a bit which is a plus for me. Sessionable (LOL)?

Overall - An incredible beer. You can really taste the freshness. I love beers that taste pure (no chemical wank, etc.). This is probably the one of the most "pure" tasting beers I have ever had. Highly recommended.
