When you get three hopheads together to collaborate on a beer, it’s only natural to expect some hopped up liquid incarnation of their lupulin lust to spring forth from such a session. Maybe it seems passé to some—three masters of hoppy beer once again exploring the familiar territory of the India pale ale. After all, who needs yet another IPA, double or otherwise, right? It’s all been done. To those who feel this way, this trio’s reply is: “So what?” In birthing a double IPA made bitter and fruity care of a mélange of new and experimental hops (Azacca, Belma, and yet-to-be-named varieties from Washington’s Yakima Valley), they aren’t staying in a comfort zone—they’re hitting a sweet spot in the name of all that is good, delicious, hoppy and forward-thinking to create an IPA that’s both like and unlike anything they, or you, have ever tasted. Rife with essence of pine, resin, and fruits both citrus and tropical, there’s no need for apologies with this beer. All that’s necessary is a yearning for hops, a sturdy constitution and an empty glass.

    Very good stuff. Never heard of the hops involved but enjoyed being part of the experiment. Lots of stuff going on in the flavour, quite fruity, and pine. One burp when you're finished and you taste melon. Most of the malt seems to be in the aroma. Full bodied, dry and bitter.

    A cloudy orange colored beer with a big sudsy textured, white head rising above. There's very good hang time on the head. Fluffs of film of film and thick ringlet are left. Loads of hops in the nose. That follows with pine and citric in the tasting. Sweet and Resiny slick on the tongue

    Good head, big resinous aroma of pine and citrus. Fruit forward flavor with ample bitterness that grows as the beer warms. Full bodied and oily texture. Good stuff. Worth it for the variety alone though I can't say it's better than Stone's cheaper IPAS. Enjoy By is still tops in that bullpen.
