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.

Really enjoy when this one arrives back on the shelf. Full bodied but also with a clean crispness. Somewhat of a lackluster pour, but no biggie. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arkurzynski (2220) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Amber orange. Nose isn’t as pungent as expected. Citrus, grapefruit, some malt. Flavor is bold. After the initial toasted malt and carbonation, there is a wave of citrus, grapefruit and orange hop oil that washes over. Lingering malt and bitter grapefruit.

oh6gdx (25258) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2016
Bottled. Hazy orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized foamy head. Aroma is citrus, spruce, some pine and mild spiciness with a good maltiness to it. Flavour is sweet malts, some fruity, floral, grassy and mild tasted notes. Refreshing and hides the alcohol nicely.

JPDIPSO (5588) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 27, 2016
By 04.20.14 enjoyed on 4/11/14 Clean golden liquid with a smallish beige head. Aroma is of citrus and a bit of urinal cake. Flavor start with sweet grapefruit and leads to pale and woody malts. Very sharp and hoppy. Floral aspects in the finish and linger. Part I like, and other parts are a bit too over the top for me.

shigadeyo (3633) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2016
4/22/216: I’ve had several editions of this with the most recent being Enjoy By 4-20-16... Aroma of citrus, pine, melon, peach and flora hops with some cereal graininess; dark gold to almost amber in color, frothy beige head; thin grainy maltiness, hops dominate, of course ,and present grapefruit, pine, and a touch of something tropical, dry finish, alcohol is COMPLETELY hidden which makes this a dangerous one (and probably why my girlfriend was pretty drunk toward the end of the night after only have a few pints!); medium body, smooth, average texture; this is a solid IPA and it smells and tastes nicely hoppy and fresh, but it’s nothing overly unique or special at this point. Draught at Nation Bar & Grill in Cincinnati, Ohio.
