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.

A- Fantastic light copper/golden look.

S- Piney, tropical, citrus, perfect smelling DIPA

T- Slight hop bitterness up front fading into citrus, tropical taste. A very refreshing DIPA

M- Light bodied, very clean, crisp feel. This is a 9.4% beer, but does not drink like it. Very smooth.

O- I get the enjoy by every time I see it. This is in my top 5 DIPA's ever and I like the fact it is very easy to get throughout the year. I put the enjoy by up there with Dogfish Head Burton Baton and Coast breweries Boyking. A phenomenal beer.

I'll start but saying that this brew is a deal on wheels. Very affordable big batch brew that has most of the bells and whistles of a special release ipa

Pours out a hazy war of orange and yellow - nice and clear enough to see right thru

Aroma is hops at first followed by vegetal notes. A lil bit of old lemon and awesome onion

Taste is much the same - hop sweetness at first very refreshing if your thirsty - bitterness comes from over hopping- malts are there just adding to the sweetness of this brew

Not really a full bodied beer this goes down quick - I'm not sharing this bomber! Carbonation is pleasing as you quaff down big sips of this brew

Overall I'm really into this brew - the hop bill is overkill but that's ok by me - this DIPA could hang with some of the big boys - but very rough around the edges and not really refined -

Last note. A lot of these have tasted the same to me - with the exception of enjoy by they made after releasing they're session IPA - that one seemed very weak. So weak I was almost done looking for this beer. I'm glad I gave it another go around
