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 12/25/2015, 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.

Golden and clear. Eggshell head. Piney dank aroma grapefruit, some caramel. Taste is so dank piney and citrusy. Then caramel sweetness and a hint of alcohol followed by a lasting bitterness. Medium body and medium carb. Still my favorite west coast iipa.

12-25-15 Interesting beer to say the least! The 1st glass was fresh & crisp with no noticeable ABV and it almost resembled a "session" beer because of it's drinkability. SCARY because it is actually 9.4%! 2nd glass was with spicy food and it held up to it fantastically. This beer shines tremendously with the addition of food. The hops are clean and cut through perfectly with out being overbearing. This is a beer that seems OK until you get further into it then it shines. Excellent and a perfect spicy food paring!

A clear golden color, with a small head. Clusters of small rapidly rising bubbles makes it all come alive.

Smells strongly of citrus, tangerine sweetness, and generally sweet bread.

The incredibly sweet nature of the smell, is subdued in the taste by the bitter nature of the hops and malt. Mouthfeel is quite light, but not overtly so. As expected out of a beer which prides itself on its freshness, this is quite juicy. Although, this is definitely more dry than some of its competitors (Surly's Wet comes to mind).
