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.

VoodooBear (49) - San Juan, - APR 26, 2014
Presentation: 22 oz. brown bottle with the 05/16/14 "Enjoy By" date right on the label. Served in a Sam Adams pint glass. Appearance: Perfect clear, bright, gold color. It develops a robust head that quickly goes away and leaves just a thin ring. The lacing is incredible, covering the whole glass and slowly sliding away. Smell: Big citrus, hop aromas of pine, grapefruit and spices attack the nose. The smell is very good and very important to the overall experience. Taste: The citrusy grapefruit taste is right at the front along with some pine and spicy pepper notes. There’s also an alcohol sting at the end thanks to a 9.4% ABV that gets stronger and more noticeable as the beer warms. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. It’s smooth and very refreshing when cold. It only gets smoother as it warms up. Overall: It was a big deal for Puerto Rico’s craft beer scene getting this. Believe the hype, it’s simply incredible in every aspect. Hophead or not, you need to give this beer a try. It should be noted that in order for this beer to be enjoyed fully it should be had slowly. The taste and texture both change the warmer it gets.

Floral, sweet, citrusy. Pours slightly copper. A bit sticky on the palate, roasted malt on the lighter side. Bitter and hoppy but goes down easy.

BringOnTheBigUns (11) - Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Although each time it is brewed the flavor palate does change slightly, it is by far one of the best series of DIPAs available. If you can get it, drink it. The absolute freshest beer available when it gets released with a limited shelf life expectancy.

Lovely beer, balanced taste, hops are not over powering, crisp CO2 mouthfeel, fresh taste and feel

Bottle to pilsner glass. Enjoy by 4.20.15. Appearance: big white head. Hazy medium yellow. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, light grasses and pine. Taste is mostly hair spray, some lemon and pine. Medium carb. Not impressed, though I rarely am by an ipa.

c0fein (336) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 30, 2015
650ml bottle from Whole Foods - Tribeca, New York. Thanks Jesse! Enjoy By 04.20.15. Bottled 03.16.15. Better late than never!

Clear orange/copper colour with a white head. Sharp tropical and fresh aroma. Flavour of grapefruit, orange, dry bitterness. Good stuff but expected a bit more. This is still fresh to me!

WisconsinBeer (715) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2015
Bottle. Enjoy by 4.20.15. Whoops, I’m a week late. Clear pale orange, minimal head. Danky resinious hop aromas. Bubble gum, citrus, floral for the hops profile. Otherwise relatively light bodied and easy sipping. Seems to have a bit of funk to it as well. Finish is dry and clean. Definitely feeling it after one. Good stuff.

4/20/15 Very hoppy, bitter. Tastes of melon, pine, earthy/herbal. Aroma is citrus, sticky, herbal, a little tropical.

Enjoy by 4/20/15 on 4/20/15, 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours nice thick head, clear amber color. Aroma of melon, nicely carbonated. Citrus start and ends slightly bitter

lana5 (42) - Canton, Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2015
Has a nice golden color. Has a sweet flavor with a bitter after taste. The after taste could be because it’s has a citrus/grapefruit taste.
