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.

Bottle of Enjoy By 12.25.15. Pours clear golden with frothy white head and visible bubbles. Grapefruit smell with a hint of pine. Crisp taste with minimal fizz. Zesty grapefruit without being to bitter and a nice level of hops. Good beer. (K)

rjplumer (971) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Bold grapefruit and pine aroma. Solid clear golden body with a creamy one finger head. Has an initial bitter blast to get your attention. Further on i detect a sweet perhaps grapefruit sensation. Warms your palate going down. Bold yet friendly to the senses. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Turboninja (468) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle@home, from Constantino’s, Cleveland, USA. Medium fresh aroma with citrus and sweet fruits like mango. Golden color with small white head and clear liquid. Strong sturdy taste with slightly over aged still bit sweet mango. Huge amount of hops. Some malts can be detected. Medium balanced. Medium taste spectrum and long hoppy aftertaste with citrus. Medium/strong body with medium/light carbonation. Overall, slightly simple but the great thing is the transformation that changes the character every few days e.g. the body got much needed sturdiness on the last bottle.

drjoeng (738) - SINGAPORE - DEC 20, 2015
This was a "12-25-15" 9.4%ABV. Double IPA. Tapped out a rich cloudy light Amber. 9şSRM. Nose is pineapple. This would be bright yellow fleshed, sweet pineapple from the Philippines or Sarawak. There are the more traditional deScriptors of pine and resin. The nose also has a rich sour funk in the base notes of the aroma that are remiscent of the funk you appreciate in a cane sugar processing plant, where the raw cane liquor is being boiled down. This funkiness that you usually associate with humidity and heat is likely a function of the rich yeasty aroma which you get strongest near the bottom of your first pint. The nose is fresh and rich at the same time. Mouthfeel is soapy and sudsy and rich. Carbonation is pronounced and just right for such a richly endowed brew. Beautiful roast malt sweetness starting with a robust carbohydrate palate of cracked barley loaves, rough country rye bread, graham cracker pie crust, Animal Crackers, and while we’re on crackers, you also get some nice ginger snaps with both richness and that cute spiciness. There are more obvious caramel, toffee and roasted chestnut flavors. You get some nice bread like flavors like those coming out of a freshly baked crunchy chewy baguette. Some nice raw dough freshness in the palate as well. Hop flavors are pine, resin, hyssop, collard greens, kale, Dandelion green and arrowroot richness. Finish is just herbaceous clean and with a hint of hyssop aggressiveness, but not outright aggression, more like knowing, nod of the head, raise of the eyebrow sort of passive aggression, my favorite kind!! Goes on Favorites List! Goes on All Time Favorites List! For now and until another more seductive brew brushes up against me, the very best double IPA that I have ever ever ever had.

It?s a great beer! You gotta love stone IPAs. It tastes great out of the bottle I wonder what it would taste like on draft

gegwilson (3033) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2015
Keg in the Beer Tempel Amsterdam as Enjoy By 25/12/15. Pours golden with a big foamy cream head. Nice pine aroma. The taste is lots of pine and smooth caramel. A little booze in the finish. Really good, but I expected a little more given the hype.

teorn88 (6038) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2015
22oz bomber at BD Shoreditch, London. It pours a clean golden color with a large white head. Aroma is big citrus notes, tangerine an demon peel. Taste has notes of citrus, persimmon, mango, tangerine. Quite crispy but also sweet and rich as it warms up, with notes of caramel and booze. Medium to full bodied with good lively carbonation. Overall, tasty and quite bold.

mariuspoenari (1291) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Enjoy by 25.12.15, had on 7.12.15 at Craft & Draft in Amsterdam. A great Imperial IPA, heavy on the tropical fruit - mango, pineapple, passion fruit - mixed with a healthy amount of dank piny hops, on top of a sweet, malty body. This beer kind of reminded me of Pliney the Elder, but it was not nearly as balanced (the bitterness and alcohol were a bit rough around the edges) and the texture was not as smooth. Other than that, an excellent beer.
