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.

Remarkably crisp, fresh, & flavourful! Pours up a light transparent golden copper with a nice frothy white head. The aroma is citrus and lemon with hoppy oniony, garlicky, herbal complexity. The flavours are very fresh with lots of lemon grass, cilantro, & hints of mint. The subtle malt richness smooths the brilliant high notes. Medium bodied on the palate, this is a thoroughly enjoyable DIPA. Outstanding!

Absolutely delicious. I’m not sure if DIPA’s can get better than this. Massive white head that does not dissipate at all, and leaves amazing lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, citrus, and grapefruit, without exaggeration, my mouth is watering at the site of it. Blood orange and hazy through the glass. Taste is hoptastic and wonderful, just perfect.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2014 2-14-14 on tap at Brick House Pub. Amazing! Clear golden pour with thick foamy white head. Aroma of fresh dank hops. Sweet and bitter perfectly balanced. Love love!

Finally on tap at Maltitude, Columbus, GA. 2-14-14 edition. Pours a clear golden color with thin white head. Aroma is very piney hops with hints of lemon and citrus. Taste is hoppy and resiny. Extremely smooth with great bitterness lingering on the palate. Lives up to the hype. Great all around beer.

2.14.14 Bomber to glass mug. Pours a clear yellow, with an off white head that dissapates quickly. Smells a bit like a litterbox on the nose, some piney notes. Nice fresh hop flavors, really, really smooth. Can’t tell the AVB at all. Excellent.

Enjoy by 2/14/14. On tap at the Red Hot. Golden color thin white head. Huge floral scent. Lots of hops. Taste is very hoppy, citrusy and a little boozy. The citrus lingers for a while. Beautiful beer. Just beautiful.

Wow, great beer. First time I’ve ever had a chance to try this fresh. Actually saw one on shelf once 3 months past date. Would have bought if store wasn’t charging $8.99 still. Very drinkable DIPA

Enjoy by 2/14/14. Bottled on 1/8/14 ? Hard to tell the etching on bottle is blurred but then of course that doesn’t matter as it is obvious by the bold label when to enjoy by. Well what better beer to start my rate beer account than the "Enjoy by" series. Finally decided to join the site and log my entries properly in the digital age instead of the old pen and paper routine. Amazing aroma on the nose..... Fresh citrusy and all that good stuff. Could bask in that for ever. Flavor not as hoppy as I expected however though not necessarily a bad thing and mouthfeel is a little thin. Alcohol very well hidden. Good beer. Usually don’t get the "enjoy by" series in my neck of the woods so grateful to get my hands on this one.
