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 4/20/14 poured into a tulip. Appears a beautiful hazy orange color, with a thick, fluffy, off-white head. The head has great staying power, and leaves beautiful lacing as it dissipates.

Nose is full of loads of citrus, pine, and some dank notes as well. This is very resinous, and citrus almost takes a back seat, but is still very present. There is almost no malt to speak of in the nose. The taste follows along these lines, but the citrus, specifically grapefruit is more of a focal point. The resinous and dank pieces are still there, and blend wonderfully with the barely present touch of caramel malt.

The mouthfeel is slightly thicker than medium bodied, with good active carbonation, and a slightly sticky finish. This goes down just like a DIPA should, but maybe a touch too heavy for me. Overall, this is an excellent DIPA that I look to get every time it comes in the distribution area. I love the concept of the naming / labeling, and wish more dates were clear like this. The citrus and pine work together beautifully, and the nose is an absolute hop bomb. Definitely worth the hype.

4.20.14 bomber poured into a tulip.

A - Clear golden color with two fingers of off-white foamy head. Retention is about 3-4 minutes. Lots of lacing down the glass.

S - I can't describe it as anything other than hop heaven. Floral and citrusy with a hint of malty sweetness.

T - Bright hop flavor up front, some malt sweetness, then a bitter, earthy, hop finish.

M - Bright and bubbly. Finishes cleanly. Not too light and not too heavy.

O - I haven't had an Enjoy By in a while, but damn this is good.
