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.

Maris (1169) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2015
From a 500ml bottle (Enjoy by 2.14.15) on 7/2/2015 (just in time!), shared by Butz with thanks. Pours a clear golden with a medium head. Has a lovely tropical floral IPA nose to it. In the mouth, there’s lots of sweet citrus (orange, mandarin) and stone (apricot, peach) with some light malt. The bitterness is sticky and resiny, but the sweetness holds sway in the end. Has a syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Super drinkable for a double - you’d never pick it as 9.4% blind. Just a really harmonious, almost subtle double IPA, which is enormously enjoyable. Refreshing isn’t a word you’d usually associate with this style but it applies here.

DanielBrown (4147) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle from Brewdog Brum. Cracked open and drunk to celebrate the birth of my son. Beautifully deceptive DIPA: totally sneaks up on you. Thin, sticky and tasting like a lime biscuit cut with salt. Moreish. Incredibly delicious smell.

Cirrhosis (1266) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 5, 2015
Enjoy By 02.14.15. (BOTTLE)Wow on tap and bottle in Edmonton! Looks like beer. Feels fizzy, carbonation stings the mouth. Resin, pine, peach, not overly sweet. Fuck this bitter, pallet is destroyed after a few sips. Amazing brew. Dry but full. Pepper. Doing this review while watching episode 1 season 4 of GOT....... ya I’m a year behind. Beer has no faults.... not perfect.... but no faults.

Chadski4 (168) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Nearly perfect Double IPA. Lemony resiny aromas give way to pineapple flavors with a dry finish.

ikigai (74) - California, USA - FEB 2, 2015
2/2/15 pour from bomber of 02.14.15. Hazy yellow Amber without much aroma. A little piney and citrus but a little unbalanced toward malt side. Did a side by side taste test with Pliny The Elder and Pliny had a better aroma and more balanced taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fezzy (105) - California, USA - FEB 2, 2015
02-14-15 from 22oz. bomber into a room temperature pint glass. Nose and taste bursting with delightful floral, citrus, and pine aromatics, with just the right amount of actual bitterness to balance the bouquet. Remarkable mouthfeel for an imperial over 9% ABV - doesn’t feel sticky or overly mouth-coating at all. So tasty and so drinkable -watch out!

reebtogi (4891) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2015
650ml bottle (Batch 02.14.15) pours a golden color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine, citrus and tropical fruits with some grains. Taste is a pine and citrus hop bitterness with a tropical fruit and grainy malty sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation that pleases the palate. This is a very nice DIPA that must be appreciated by all who can get it.

Douberd (3291) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2015
(Stone Enjoy By IPA) Bottle 650 ml, from BenH, thanks! Batch 02.14.15 Served into a shaker, ABV 9.4% Golden yellow to orange colour on the body, crystal clear, with a good sized and thick white head, great retention, leaving light lacing behind. Hoppy aroma with mango, tropical fruits, light pine and resin on the background, citrus, kumquat, light pineapple and even melon. A whole bunch of flavours, again citrus, orange peel, melon, tropical fruits, light alcohol, mango, with the bitterness on just the right level, both on the initial stage and as aftertaste too. Medium body, good carbonation. Really great beer.

floydian1 (1186) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 31, 2015
From a 650ml bottle with a BB of 14/2/15 air freighted to Australia within two days of bottling by a brewery-approved importer (as opposed to the grey imports up til now). Clear golden with a large dense white head that lasts. Loads of fresh hops on the nose with notes of orangey citrus, blue spruce, pine resin, alcohol, and tobacco ash which is broadly reflected on the tongue. Palate is smooth, medium bodied and robustly bitter with a substantial citrusy dry hop bitter finish that lingers long after the swallow. An exceptional West Coast style American DIPA that lives up to the hype.
