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 12.21 drank 12.03

Pours two fingers of white head with a clear orangey gold body.

Immediate sweet peachy notes just jump out of the glass. Orange and some astringent grapefruitiness. Light pine under the fruit. Floral notes as well. Lovely smelling IPA. As it warmed a bready toasted character became more prevalent as did some caramel and the alcohol.

Holy hops. Get more of the piney resinous thing going on in the taste. Grapefruit. My tongue was assaulted by a bone dryness and bitterness. It's not totally hops as there is some detectable bready malt but it's really about the hops.
Great smooth body on this with mild carbonation.

I love a big ridiculous IPA like this every now and then.
