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.

On tap at Pracna. Dark copper color. Very fresh and sort of a wet-hop quality to the beer. Tons of hops, flowers and a little pine. It is sweet and there is a lot of malt in here, but the hops are more prominent. Great beer.

Bottle courtesy of ken1. 05.17.13 version. Clear dark golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and rather hoppy - grapefruit and peach. Flavor is quite sweet and very bitter. Dry and very bitter finish. 180513

Enjoy by 5/17/13. Ok technically this was enjoyed on 5/18/13. Aroma-lots of grapefruit, mango, peach and tropical fruit notes. Taste-very juicy just like 4/1/2013. dry finish. Overall-still very very very good even though it is technically expired. I will be buying this every time it comes into maryland.

Enjoy by 05.17.13 bottle. Pours orange yellow in color nice white head that fades very light lacing on glass. Aroma is a very nice variety of different citrus smells. Taste is of orange tangerine grapefruit pine slight malt taste. Also very nice hoppy flavor. nice body and carbonation very drinkable. I like the bottles better then the kegs.

I got the enjoy by 5-17-13 bottle at Brewtopia. Pours orange with a thin white head. Big grassy and grapefruit notes on the nose. Nicely balanced on the tongue. Lots of grapefruit and enough bitterness for balance. Hides it’s alcohol we’ll. One of the best IPA’s I’ve ever had.

Had the Enjoy By 04-01-13. Medium colour. Aroma of grapefruit and pine is quite pleasant, almost up there with Pliny. Quite easy to drink given the quite strong bitterness. Thanks Mike W for the beer.

rubbishystuff (2300) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2015 At Stocks and Blondes, the 05-17-13 batch. Not a big fan of this beer. Big hops but they were too grassy and it had kind of an off honey taste. Needed more malt back bone too. Serving: Tap
