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 bottle, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and beer fans. 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.

high_on_hops (797) - Burlingame, California, USA - OCT 16, 2012
On tap at the Stone restaurant. It has a great grapefruit, pine, and grass aroma with a hoppy flavor up front leading to a holy and slightly malty finish over a smooth mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle in LA. Enjoy By 10.31.15. Enjoyed on 10.8.15 bottled on 9.27.15 Massive, massive tropical fruit and citrus hop aroma. Some alcohol sweetness, finishes clean and smooth bitterness. Amongst the best imperial IPA I?ve had. An ode to hops.

monk191 (1379) - California, USA - OCT 8, 2015
A very nice well balanced IPA. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Smells amazing, of tropical fruit, mango, citrus. Taste is hoppy upfront, balanced with more mango and citrus, finishes lightly bitter. Had on tap at HopMonk.

VsXsV (2971) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2015
Draught. Clear light amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, tangerine, mango, caramel, bread and marmalade. Taste is very light sweet and medium bitter with notes of mango, tangerine, lemon peel, citrus and light caramel. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Really drinkable for the ABV. Super good and hoppy! Love it.

hackobock (2298) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2015
October 7, 2015. On tap at Brewdog Kungsholmen, Enjoy by October 31, 2015.
Clear pale amber with a small white head. Aroma is pine, resin, toffee, grapefruit, orange zest and hints of pineapple. Taste is medium sweet with medium bitterness. Finish is sweet with toffee, resin, ripe fruits, hints of alcohol and a lasting dry grassy and piney bitterness. Medium bodied, oily texture, average carbonation.
Nice imperial IPA, a bit more pine and toffee forward than I prefer but still very good.

DavoleBomb (1614) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Poured into a snifter. Enjoy by 4/20. 3.75 A: Light to moderately hazed copper color. Just about one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention wasn’t great, but I did pour it somewhat cold. 4.25 S: Big floral hoppiness to start. Notes of cat piss, grapefruit, pine resin, and orange and mango fruits. Really clean, which is how I like my DIPAs these days. Mild neutral maltiness with a hint of toasty caramel. 4.5 T: Again big hoppiness in this. Floral, some herbalness, piney, grapefruit are the strong flavor. Cat piss, citrus, and earth are underneath. Again clean neutral malts with light caramel. 4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and super smooth. 4.25 D: Overall, a damn good DIPA. I haven’t had one in a long time that impressed me, but this does. ★ 797 characters DavoleBomb, Apr 09, 2014
