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.

beerbastard (744) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle, Enjoy By 2-15-13. Damn Good! Pours a brilliant golden amber. Big hop nose of oily pine and grapefruits. Strikingly big citrus hop flavors, but followed by a honey like sweetness that only tries to tame this hop bomb. Some burn in the finish, along with a palatable amount of bitterness. Love it!!

Pours a clear golden color with an eggshell head that quickly disipates. Smells of floral hops, pine and a bit of citrus. The taste is mostly piney with some floral and citrus notes, bitter but not unbearably so, goes down smooth with a dry bitter finish.

cargo150 (874) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2015
Enjoy by 03-14-15. Couleur dorée avec un col blanc resistant. Aromes de résines, agrumes, alcool, céréales. L’alcool est mal caché... Pourtant je l’es bu avant la date d’expiration... Je n’est pas beaucoup aimé. Ce n’est pas pour moi...

rondphoto (2476) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 2, 2015
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber color, bubbly white head cover, mottled curtain of lace. Aroma of hops. Taste is sweet malt that surrenders to solid, but not overwhelming, pine hops on the swallow, hops and some malt moving together to a long, satisfying finish. An exceptional brew.

Enjoy by 3-14-15. From a bottle. Amber body with white head. Aroma is fruity with a himt of pine and malt. Taste is nearly perfect; fruity and malty with the alcohol on the backend. An almost perfect beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sebilinz (695) - Linz, AUSTRIA - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle. Amber Body with white head. Aroma is fruity with some pines, I was expecting a little bit stronger aroma but still very good. Taste was nearly perfect fruity and malty with the alcohol very well hidden. Aftertaste is fruity bitter balanced by some malts. Perfect. Great brew.

venettafields (10) - - FEB 21, 2015
Enjoy By 12/26/14, had about three weeks before. Pours a golden orange with soapy, off white head. Lively carbonation. Aroma is just straight up grapefruit juice. Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. Maybe a little underripe pineapple, sweet malt. Taste follows nose, grapefruity, just a little bit of bitterness, not terribly complex. There’s so much malt in here, the bitterness hardly bothers you. Decently carbonated, a medium mouthfeel. For a widely available big IPA, this is pretty good.

4 day old bottle. Pours a clear copper gold with large frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is huge tropical and juicy hop, citrus. Medium Mouthfeel with nice juicy hop, nice bitterness, resin finish, really enjoyed this one.

Davros (2127) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 16, 2015
Pours amber, large head. Massively hoppy aroma, big pine, resinous, spicy and herbal notes along with some petrol-like new-world hops. Some light clean malt underneath. Clean flavours too, with a focus on piny, resinous and more petrol-like hop notes. Some slightly solvent-like booze notes.
