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.

From tap at BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, lots of pine resin, some malt, big hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a bitter finish. Body is medium. Very smooth, well-balanced. Nice hoppy juicy IIPA.

bulldogops (1689) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2016 22.03.2015 - Had 4/20/15 on tap in Hollywood 02.03.2015 - Had Feb 14th 2015 edition 3 weeks late - it was still good. Rating #1400 19.12.2014. Bottle from Sherbrooke. Batch 26.12.2014. Pours a golden amber, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is citrusy, grapefruit hops predominant. Taste is extremely hoppy, lots of cool citrus notes - mild tropical, mild pine, mild orange zest. Extraordinarily balanced - the sweet, cookie dough malt met with doses of bitterness, and they all linger into the finish. Really awesome double IPA worthy of most of the hype.

Bright, fresh citrus nose. Taste follows with complex hop character. You can taste the freshness. Balances nice with a crisp finish. Hides the abv very well.

Hoprider (383) - DENMARK - NOV 15, 2015
10.31.15 - drunk in mid October. Pours clear golden with a white fluffy head. Rich aroma of candy hops...? Some sweet spice. Interesting nose but really nice. Taste is moderately sweet with a full mouthfeel. Big malt body but solid hop amount to be balanced. Finishes semi bitter and very mouthcoting. Liked it lots.

florio2 (6) - - NOV 9, 2015 does not count
This was unexpected. Pours a clear gold fragrant brew with a creamy minimal head. Hints of citrus and a clear finish on the back of the palate.

Stone Enjoy By 10-31-15, on tap in Ernie´s Tin Bar, Petaluma, in October. An excellent double IPA, brimming with luscious and fresh hop aromas and flavours, intense but not too extreme.
