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.

Nice, golden hue with a good head; I can see floating sediment and evidence of the lack of filter. I love the sweet smell with a hint of orange. It has a full-bodied, yet light flavor. Can't taste the alcohol at all, but I can definitely feel it. Nice, hoppy taste. Will definitely enjoy again.

A unique DIPA. No cloying maltiness fighting with forward hops, just a clean malt presence undergirding a terrific hop bite. This is a goto DIPA, and one for the ages.

Enjoy by 4/20/16, bottled 3/16/16. Enjoyed 3/21/16.
An outstanding DIPA, nothing really so special as to put it in that world class category in my opinion, but It is no doubt a very very good IPA.
Enjoy by Unfiltered is a better and perhaps world class beer, but it is a league above this. This is still an outstanding DIPA and my rating is only so high because I took into consideration how easily they are attained versus other outstanding DIPAs of similar class.

Enjoy by 2/14/16 - poured from a bomber bottled 1/9/16 into a tulip on 1/24/16

Look: Amber, semi-translucent. A little hazy. Finger of off-white/yellow head. Large fluffy bubbles. Good retention with moderate lacing. Easily roused to a finger-height head with little agitation

Smell: Incredibly tropical and fruity. Mango, guava, peach, apricot. Mild pine and resin but the fruits predominate. Increasing pine character as it warms.

Taste: Typical pine and resin. Nothing surprising. But of orange-juice / rind

Feel: Fairly high carbonation. Deceivingly thick mouthfeel. Fair amount of alcoholic heat but I wouldn't place it at 9.4%

Overall: Great stuff. Absolutely intoxicating aroma and very balanced flavor. My first of the Enjoy By series and definitely not the last.
