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 is simply unbelievable! Unlike any beer you’ve ever smelled. Imagine throwing hops all over your back yard, turning on the sprinkler then mowing the grass. I loved this beer, please make more!

Really unique IPA -- piney hops, but really smooth. This is 9.13.13 variety. -- Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone.

Not a big IPA drinker but this stuff is just delicious. I’ve been fortunate enough to have tried about 6 batches and it never disappoints. However it’s worth noting that it will be a significantly poorer brew within days after the date on the bottle so don’t try to hold onto this one.

On tap at Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens. As Enjoy By 09.13.13. A clear, dark golden beer with a small off-white head. Lots of peaches and pine cones on the nose, hop pellets. Some generic tropical fruits and malty sweetness. The flavor has the same hop pellet touch, with a faint sweetness, lots of bitterness and some piney, citrusy notes. Dry on the palate, full bodied and pleasantly carbonated. Lasting finish. Wonderfully tasteful, although a bit too much on the hop pellet side. 130817

Pours clear deep golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus, grape, pine, peach and hop pellets. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long citrus fruity and piney finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

On draught at baileys - pours a nice clear deep golden color. Nose is of pure hop. Smooth mouthfeel. Taste is hop dominate. Definitely not for the bud lovers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Belated review of the 4/15. Amazing. One if the best west coast IPAs I've ever had. Had on tap in western MA. Flowery hops dominate just the way I like them to. Strong grapefruit smells and fresh cut grass. Very drinkable. Can't wait until my next run in with Enjoy By. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
