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.

fraternie (843) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2013
ENJOY BY 12/13/13: Distinctly floral and herbal on the nose with a strong hoppy mouthfeel dominated by grapefruit citrus and piney hops over the somewhat oily texture, hints of vegetal complexity and subtle caramel malts linger through the lightly spicy, creamy, and smooth finish. Packs a punch, but you don’t taste it, just feel it.

Really good. Mild Hoppy nose. Smooth with an ever so slight malt bitter finish. Big fan

czar (4687) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
(enjoy by 12.26.2014) pours hazy very light golden with a small white cap showing some retention and lacing. loads of melons, litchee, passionfruit, pumpkin meat, candied grapefruit peel and skin, pale doughy maltiness - honeyed and never sweet, peppery and never perfumey booze, clean yeast. light carbonation, medium body - oily, balanced spicy-tropical-citrusy finish. great modern ipa from hop pioneers. much enjoyed!

gramity (1452) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
Bomber into a pint glass, I really like this fresh hop stuff. Smells incredible and tastes so much better than most bottled IPA. Not to mention 9.4% which is also impressive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

manuelMTL (164) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a thin but persisting head. The nose is sweet with mango and papaya aromas. The taste is smooth with lots of malt sweetness. The hoppy bitterness and high ABV builds up in the finish. Great DIPA with a fairly high ABV level!

jake65 (2729) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle, 12.26.14 batch. One of my most anticipated beers of 2014. Absolutely gorgeous pour; bright golden orange with a finger of creamy beige head. Tons of sticky lacing. Fresh and fruity scent; citrus, grapefruit, and tropical. Pungent. The taste is very much like the aroma, but with the addition of melon. Just a whisper of the abv. I had high hopes for this and it hits every mark... it’s huge and very very drinkable. Really damn good.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle: Poured a clear bright yellow color ale with a huge foamy head with great retention and some good lacing. Aroma of green fresh hoppy notes with light sweet notes also noticeable. Taste is dominated by floral green hoppy notes with grassy notes and residual sugar notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Glad to finally try this and it is indeed very enjoyable.

Perfect score for an IPA fan, or really anyone who can appreciate bold aggressive flavors in a smooth body and finish. The fusel alcohol’s are barely noticeable, making this dangerously delicious! I just had to buy a bottle to share with our family on Christmas, but the 25th better get here soon because it is extremely difficult to wait to open another one of these babies!

Bottled as enjoy by 12-26-14. Yellow slightly hazy pour with a nice finger of white head. Aroma is peaches, mango, pine, citrus, outstanding. Taste is citrus, mango, pine, finishes slightly dry with bitterness, full bodied, medium carbonation. Outstanding DIPA.

rouhlas (339) - GREECE - DEC 18, 2014
650ml bottle of "Enjoy By 12-26-14", thanks Alexi! Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is heavy hoppy, piney and floral, light citrusy, malty caramel. Sweet and bitter taste like the aroma, hoppy piney, fruity, malty caramel. Medium oily body with soft carbonation and quite bitter long finish. Easy drinkable for its alcohol.

Always an excellent buy. Currently drinking the 12.26.14. I get citrus and apricot. Maybe Citra? But the hops are big and round, unlike many Citra beers. Light toasty malt, fairly bitter and tangy on balance. Full resinous mouthfeel.
