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.

12/21/12 batch. Crisp amber pour with a white head. Nose is passionfruit, light alcohol, citrus, stupid fresh, and resiny. Great on the palate, resiny hops, sticky, tropical fruit, clean finish.

12-21-12 version. 22 oz. bottle served in a Duvel Tulip. Pours a brilliant gold with a finger of white head. Very fragrant hop aroma. Lots of citrus, esp. pineapple. Also a fair amount of caramel malt in the aroma. Not as bitter as the aroma would suggest. Lighter side of medium bodied. Not a lot of malt backbone, but this is about hops. Drying hop bitterness in finish. Dangerously drinkable for the ABV. Great way to highlight the importance of drinking hoppy beers when they are fresh.

I expected this to be pretty good, but it exceeded my expectations. The beer pour clearish golden with a white head. The aroma has pine, grapefruit, tropical fruit, funk orange and dank hops. There is also some light caramel clean maltiness to an attempt to balance the hop onslaught. Medium / thick full body with some fairly soft underscored carbonation. The flavor starts with lots of funky, dank and tropical hops, some fairly sweet malt and light toastiness. The finish is resiny with earth, pine and orange-like citrus. The alcohol is well hidden in the taste, but the effects are not subtle. Very nicely done IIPA.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2012
This is Enjoy By 12/21/12. Bottled 11/16/12. Pours a clear golden color with a small head. The aroma has green leafy hops, grapefruit, and more grassy notes. I do like the grassiness of it. The taste has grassy notes, big dose of grapefruit flavors which is more dominant in taste. Basically this beer brings waves of grapefruit and grass. Honestly it’s just what I want in an IPA with it’s lovely dry hopped nose.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2013 Tap, 12/21/12. Finally found this beer! Pours clear medium amber with a small white head and nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and pine, quite nice. Flavor is the same, with minimal sweetness and medium to strong bitterness. Medium body. A nice DIPA, but a little (gasp!) too bitter for my taste. Rerate based on a couple pints of 11/12/13 - damn this is really good. Not sure if my tastes have changed or the beer has, but Yum!

In drinking this on tap at Goodfriends. What a find. A real grapefruit aroma, and a smooth and hoppy flavor. I live this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is the Enjoy By 12-21-12 version. The beer pours a clear yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of orange with some resin and a bit of pineapple thrown in. The flavor is similar. The orange and pineapple notes really come through nicely, adding a nice juicy flavor. There is also some biscuit malt to keep the bitterness from being too high. The alcohol is also a bit noticeable but the beer is still easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
