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.

Pours a golden-orange color, but I was surprised to see it this clear despite being labeled “unfiltered.” Lot of rising bubbles. Thin white head that lingers. Floral and tropical fruit aromas. Taste mirrors this, moderate amount of hops for the style, there are certainly more aggressively hopped IPAs. A delayed malt character presents itself to balance out the finish. Thick, lacy mouthfeel, can feel and taste this beer for about 20 minutes after finishing it.

One of my favorite Enjoy Bys. Diverse hop profiles.

Poured a light golden color in a Spiegelau glass with a 4 finger head.
Excellent head retention. The head lasts few minutes.

Wonderfully floral bouquet. Spice.

Very carbonated, spicy.

Grape, citrus taste. Before warming, the taste is dominated by hoppy spiciness.
Grape and citrus, and a smoother MF come into play with warming. Spicy hoppy finish.

Overall, an excellent excellent+ beer.

12oz canned on 5/29/17-- Enjoy by 7/4/17.

Pours a very slightly cloudy medium amber color. 1 finger head that sticks around for a bit. Not a ton of lacing.

Aroma is great. Mangos, banana, pine, orange, lemon, wheat, peach, malts. Very fruity and creamy.

Taste is bitter grapefruit and smooth malts. Lots of citrus. Was expecting more fruit based on the nose but the bitterness dominates a bit.

Dry and bitter finish that makes you want to keep sipping.

Overall, a great DIPA. A bit too bitter for my taste but great nonetheless.

This good beer, and it will give a great buzz, but it tastes like onions. Reminds me of Voodoo Ranger, but smoother. Drink it with a juicy burger.
