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 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Appearance: Clear yellow with a short white head that leaves some lacing on the way down.

Smell: So much citrus and floral hops! Smells amazing!

Taste: Bitter up front, followed by sharp bitterness and malts, then ending with some piney bitterness. Did I mention it’s bitter? Some faint ethanol taste pops up at the end.

Mouthfeel: Moderate thickness and carbonation.

Overall: Hoppy even for a DIPA! The malts never really stand up to the hops, but it doesn’t matter. Explodes with hop aroma and taste. Plus, you know you're getting a fresh one when you grab this.

Enjoyed this in a side by side taste test with a Pliny. First time I have had either of these beers.

Poured a lovely dark golden hue with a thick creamy pale head in a Spigelau IPA glass. Aroma was very citrus hop forward and sweet in nature. A little alcohol in the nose. Very aggressive nose.

First sip was bitter with a huge hop hit. Citrus, pine, spice, almost spicy hotness with the hop hit. Followed by a large dose of alcohol with a slight malt backbone. Crisp finish though most likely due to the alcohol. Felt like I was hit with a hop hammer, but I liked it!

Ultimately, I love a beer that challenges my senses and this one does. For my tastes a bit more in my wheelhouse than Pliny. Both great beers, but if I had to choose one forever it would be Enjoy By!
