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 July 25. Wonderful Double IPA. enjoyed on the porch in July on a beautiful summer day, certainly that helps. Great color and aroma from the pint glass we drank from. Nice citrusy taste and great mouth feel. Was unable to get the 12/25/16 version though tried. Keep 'em coming.

pours amber/orange, fairly clear

smell - piney and fruity

taste - nice balance of bitter with peachy fruit at the top, piney notes and sweet malt

feel - slightly on the thinner side of medium i would say

overall - highly enjoyable, i'd buy it again. very fresh taste, smell and feel - the hop flavors come alive, all nicely balanced

Look: Brilliant and crisp golden orange color. Not a huge head like expected. 1-2 finger head with a fairly rough pour. Head dissipates rather quickly, but has a nice 1/4 inch of bubbles continuously being replenished.

Smell: Not overly aromatic, but has some funk, pine, juniper, and citrus. Quite a Catty aroma.

Taste: A decent hop bite upfront. There is a battle between sweet malt and bitter hops. The hops burst first with peach, pineapple, and pine. There is definitely more cattiness in flavor than in the aroma. The bitterness backs off and then more malt flavors come through.

Feel: Light-Medium bodied. Felt a bit thinner than most IPAs.

Overall: Great IPA. Not the best, but very good. Not the biggest fan of Catty hop IPAs, but this one is well balanced with other flavors.
