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.

Enjoy By 7/4/13. Crystal clear gold with little head that lingers. Big piney aroma. Very hoppy taste, strong on the pine. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fad: Taster på Stone. 08-16-14. Let kattepis ellers citrus. Smagen er frisk med en pungent tropisk note kørende for sig. Lækker IIPA hvis man tager kattepissen for hvad den er.God bitterhed.

Beese (1540) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle at BrewDog, Shepherd’s Bush on 23 July. 08-16-14 variant. Poured a clear, bright, deep amber colour, with a dense white head and good lacing. Huge aroma of fresh hops, perfume, citrus, resin, dried fruit and spruce. Pine needles in the flavour, with some mango sweetness and grain. Rich complex hops in the finish, with some resin, marmalade, candy sugar and chewy grain. Excellent!

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Orange, nice white head. Smells stoney, hint of smoke, and lots of citrus. Hops dominate the taste, as you might expect. Some toasty notes, but mostly citrusy hops.

From Brewdog Bristol. Wouldn’t usually spend this kind of money on one bottle but it was every bit worth it. Lovely aroma, citrus and bitter quality to the hops, gorgeous body and a lovely warming alcohol glow. Surprisingly drinkable for a 9.4% offering. Well worth the spondoolies, best IPA I’ve had.

Pours a clear orange. Aroma is floral, piney, and grapefruit. Taste is sweet grapefruits upfront and a bitter piney finish.

Garrold (1135) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle from Brewdog, Sheffield. Fairly big hype round this, which is annoying. Just put it in the fridge, tell folks it’s in there, and they’ll buy it. No need for the, "Oooh, hurry up, the fridges are nearly empty" shite. Anyway, it’s dank and fusty and piny and orangey. Chewy and boozy, too. As Mr. Flav said, "Don’t don’t don’t don’t don’t dont dont believe the hype. Ooeeeurrgghhhaa".

By far one of the most incredible IPAs I’ve ever had the pleasure of trying. Great aroma and a fantastic taste that washes over your entire mouth and leaves you wanting more. Definitely fresh and definitely hoppy BUT not unpleasant or overly bitter on the finish.

Osprey87 (1405) - WALES - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle from Brewdog, enjoy by 08.16.14. Amber orange, slight haze, lightly sparkling, big foamy white head. Aroma - lemon and peach, light caramelly malt character. Body - medium, spritzy, slightly foamy. Taste - grassy, corn, grapefruit concentrate, tangy alcohol, fairly bitter finish. Another ’Emperor’s New Clothes’ beer from the USA. If this was made in the UK it would get a far lower rating.

JonMoore (1847) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle 08-16-14, Brewdog, Glasgow. Excellent aroma of pine, citrus, tropical fruit. Superbly well balanced, hoppy, pine, grapefruit, with nice malt backbone. Some warming from the alcohol, but very easy to drink. Basically an excellent California IPA.

BenH (2198) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle. Golden with white head. Served very warm thanks to the good people at Brewdog bar. Massive hop aroma, very piney and resinous, also notes I’d associate more with NZ hops, guava, melon, very little citrus. Taste is a bit more straight forward, mostly pine, resinous with a little grapefruit and poorly masked alcohol. Medium to light bodied with a bitter finish. I’d have preferred it to be chilled, even slightly, the beer was very warm. They could have taken some of the turds out the fridge to make room for all the Enjoy By
