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 12/25/15 poured into a pint glass.

Clear, orange/golden with a beautiful white creamy/foamy head.

Scents of fruit, tropical, mango, pineapple, citrus, pine.
Amazing smell.

The hops are noticeable in the taste but not overpowering. An amazing IPA. The clarity, the smell, the taste, the mouthfeel.... its all there. Also the alcohol is well hidden. Tastes like a 7% to me.

Loooooove it.

Look: 12.25.15 - enjoyed on 12.7.15. Pours a beautiful, clear orange-amber copper with a huge, frothy white head and great lacing.

Aroma: Full of tropical fruit, dank piney hops, and citrus (guava and slight grapefruit). The sweet malt is apparent in the aroma as well, but comes out more in the taste.

Taste: Phenomenal and full of piney hops, tropical fruit, and citrus with the sweet malt rounding out the profile towards the end.

Feel: Medium carbonation, extremely smooth and drinkable. Excellent west coast IPA.

Enjoy by 25.12.15, had on 7.12.15 at Craft & Draft in Amsterdam.
A great Imperial IPA, heavy on the tropical fruit - mango, pineapple, passion fruit - mixed with a healthy amount of dank piny hops, on top of a sweet, malty body. This beer kind of reminded me of Pliney the Elder, but it was not nearly as balanced (the bitterness and alcohol were a bit rough around the edges) and the texture was not as smooth. Other than that, an excellent beer.

Great IPA tastes like floral honey, piney hops, citrus, and apricots. Very tasty, really impressed with this one. You can really tell it's fresh by the taste it leaves in your mouth.

Enjoy by 12/25/2015, 22oz into a tulip glass
Look; Crystal clear gold with two finger white head, plenty of lacing after a quick reduction.
Smell; Dank, piney with a slight cat pee scent that often precedes top notch IPA's.
Taste; Well balanced. A quick melding of pine, citrus and then malt. The flavors seem to blend as you drink.
Feel; Creamy, very pleasant to drink.
Overall; A top notch DIPA, deceptively smooth for a 9.4% beer.

Bomber bottle labeled 10-31-15, so I tasted it approximately one month past its "best".

L - Bright orange color wit maybe a hint of green. Off white head is thick, with an oily sheen. Significant lacing.

S - A citrus and pine extravaganza on the nose. Toasty malt on the final edge of the whiff.

T - Massive hit of bitter hops as orange and pine, accompanied by a late sweetness from the malt. In the finish the hops return as a strong, almost eucalyptus-like burn.

F - Medium body with creamy, mouth-filling carbonation. Huge hops bitterness blends into a significant alcohol burn.

O - Everything about this beer is huge and flavorful and right. It becomes more deep and complex with every sip.
