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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a light golden color - slightly pale - with a white head that leaves a trail of lace.

Smells of bright tropical citrus, backed by some dankness and resinous pine, rounded out by a nice floral bouquet and some faint sweet malt.

Taste is sweet and bitter citrus up front with some mango and grapefruit detected. It has a sticky sweet malt middle with a touch of caramel quickly giving way to resinous pine and thick herbal dankness. This is an excellent double IPA.

Enjoy by valentines. Had it on 2/21, so not exactly following the rules.

Slightly peppery nose. Grassy like all good rogue beers. Very cloudy. Love'n it

This is a world class beer, nectar from the gods. Very smooth down the hatch with a very nice citrus after taste. I will buy as many as possible untill 3.14.15

3.14.15 is not very memorable. The 2.14.15 was better. Mediocrity at its best.

3.14.15 - Enjoy By Pi

This is my first Enjoy By, so I can't speak to past iterations. That said, this is a amazing DIPA.

L: Amber hue with crystal clarity. Solid head with really nice lacing.

S: Floral but with nice pine notes. I typically love citrus bombs, but the smell here is really inviting.

T: Sweet malt up front, but finishes with a nice piney, pithy hop bite. Really interesting balance at play with this beer.

F: Perfect carbonation, I can't believe the ABV is 9.4% because this is easy to sip. Something else interesting about this beer, it's literally mouth watering--the same way fresh squeezed juice is. But make not mistake, it still has a dry finish.

O: I love when beer lives up to the hype, and this definitely does. This style of DIPAs is not what I usually reach for (like I said, I love big citrus DIPAs), but this is fantastic. Definitely a world-class brew. If you can get your hands on it then scoop it up.

(Updated: I had this beer again 8 days before the drink by date, the booziness was much more evident than the first two bottles I had. It was also much sweeter than my prior two sittings. I guess there is something to that freshness dating.)
