COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

willisread (2213) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 23, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2016 07.04.16 Similar but lots of orange marmalade sweetness and feels much boozier than I last had it. Still was fresh and tasty, but not as earth-shattering as before. 10.31.2015 on tap at Stone in Asagaya. Deep gold with a small off-white head. Aromas of mango, pineapple, citrus and light peach. Superbly balanced with good malt backbone and fruit-forwards hops. Seems to be a nice blend between New Zealand hops and American. Some pine and resin on the finish. Great bitterness, but not overwhelming. Dangerously drinkable and wonderfully fresh.

altonbrownd (5415) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 22, 2015
10.31.15 bomber from Beer, Wine. Really proud and bold gold with huge, puffed up head. Ready to go. Nose is hops galore with wheat and floral notes. Taste is also also hops and pine. Very fresh and prickly texture that gets more bitter. Really well done and oh so fresh.

10.31.15 bomber on 10.21.15. Pours light orange, white head, good lacing. Aroma is crazy fruity, tropical. Flavor is tropical fruit, hop bomb. Fresh as hell, bitter finish. Excellent stuff, and well worth the price of admission.

Nische (1802) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2015
Tap at Brewdog Södermalm, Enjoy by 10.31.15. Nine days old american IPA, in Sweden, that’s nothing short of fantastic! Clear orange beer with creamy off-white head. Very fruity aroma with some resinous notes. Taste is a tropical fruit bomb with some resin and a bitter finish.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 19, 2015
Wonderful floral hop aroma from clear orange pour and small white head not aggressively bitter but bitter enough. The best thing bout beer is fresh hops and fresh flavors.

Light amber, small white head.Musty, piney hop nose and plate with a very late arriving hop bitterness. Decent but seriously over priced

whoisghost (193) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2015
A light bronze to hazy orange with a creamy off white head. Pine and hay on the nose with other floral hop notes present. Fresh pine and grass with mango, grapefruit amd herbal spice flavours too. A real solid, sweet caramel malt backbone. It’s a real hop bomb, not instantly but it just grows and grows, the bitterness lingers forever. The finish is incredibly silky, so smooth and so thick - this could be the best mouthfeel I’ve ever had. Amazing.
