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.

The aroma was pleasant with a sweet nose. Nice clear amber with a two finger head. Taste was clean and bitter with a little funky lingering taste. Overall solid DIPA

KamGoPro (151) - Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2015
7-4-15 edition on tap. Absolutely amazing aroma, strong and very fresh all around! Amber pour. The bitterness doesn’t over power any of the light citrus and grainyness. Wonderful!

Pours a medium amber golden with a nice, tight cream colored head. Solid IPA with full floral and pine hop presence and well balanced malt.

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Harsh alcohol, medicinal lengths and plastic-like moments attack this Double IPA’s floral and citrusy hops, bewildering the palate completely.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the translucent golden.
-The mouthfeel was lean and geared towards drinkability.
-However, the booming alcohol made this awful on the drinkability scale.
-I have no idea why this one got served... My palate was fresh as well, having just had a pint of their wonderful Go To IPA before it. I’d like to fault myself here, but I don’t see what I could have done wrong in this case.
-Will try it again since it’s gotten so many great ratings. Surely there must have been something awry with the glass, the tap line, something...

On tap at Stone Liberty Station.

Hop lovers dream. Grapefruit pine intense aroma. Flavor is f very light malts with fresh hops in flavor aroma and finish. Very dry and crisp with hop backend lasting.

Bottle of Enjoy By 07-04-15. It poured a clear golden yellow with a white head that left a small amount of lace. The aroma was floral and citrus. The flavor was grapefruit, pine, and other citrus fruits. It was well balance and easy to drink. It was my first Enjoy by, so I will definitely try another version to experience the changing flavors.
