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.

Had the Enjoy By 04-01-13. Medium colour. Aroma of grapefruit and pine is quite pleasant, almost up there with Pliny. Quite easy to drink given the quite strong bitterness. Thanks Mike W for the beer.

rubbishystuff (1809) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2013
At Stocks and Blondes, the 05-17-13 batch. Not a big fan of this beer. Big hops but they were too grassy and it had kind of an off honey taste. Needed more malt back bone too. Serving: Tap

phaleslu (6281) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Enjoy by 5/17/13; made it just in the nick of time. Pours a clear, bright orange-hued gold with a finger of white head. Aroma of fresh oranges, herbs, a little pine, pineapple, and sweet malts. The flavor has orange, pineapple, pine, sweet and caramel malts, and mango. Really smooth and clean. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation. Very good DIPA.

Incredibly delicious, hoppy and drinkable. Grapefruits and citrus are at the upfront.

Darwenus (535) - Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2013
I had the Enjoy By 05-17-13 on 5-13-2013, on tap at Blue Five in Roanoke, VA. It is delicious. It reminds me of Stone’s 16th Anniversary IPA, but brighter and really crisp. Grapefruit was the dominant note for me, but there were floral and grassy qualities as well. This thing hits the nose like a train and then doubles down in terms of flavor. It’s just delicious.

Copacetic. The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom. Prudence is a rich ugly old maid courted by Incapacity.

Draught. Growler courtesy of Bob. This is a beautiful double IPA with so much depth and grassy -ness.

Like drinking a basket of molten flowers sprinkled with sparkling pixie dust. This beer has serious spirit. Delicious. And I'm not really into powerful IPAs. But it is so fresh you can't help but like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

jcartamdg (1876) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours a golden amber with a paperthin white head. Aroma of citrusy, bitter hops. Taste is bitter, citrus, sweet malt and slight alcohol. Very tasty, rediculously bitter and citrusy. Solid dipa!

Narnad (1451) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours a very clean, light orange color with a modest white head. Aroma has a very pronounced mango nose, modest orange and tangerine with a light pine finish. Flavor starts off with a strong mango, tangerine, orange kick with some modest earthy bitterness and a very mild pale malt finish. Body is light/modest with sharp carbonation and a dry finish mostly from the extremely hefty hoppiness. Overall a great beer. Price was around $5 for the bottle so it makes it even more of a fantastic buy at that price in comparison to other brews.
