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- weve taken it further, a lot further, in this IPA. You see, we specifically brewed it NOT to last. Weve not only gone to extensive lengths to ensure that youre getting this beer in your hands within an extraordinarily short window, we made sure that the Enjoy By date isnt randomly etched in tiny text somewhere on the bottle, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and beer fans. Instead, weve sent a clear message with the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 19, 2015
Wonderful floral hop aroma from clear orange pour and small white head not aggressively bitter but bitter enough. The best thing bout beer is fresh hops and fresh flavors.

Crit (3944) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
Light amber, small white head.Musty, piney hop nose and plate with a very late arriving hop bitterness. Decent but seriously over priced

Bottle. A- Dank, week, pine, citrus. A- Amber color, clear liquid, off white head. T- Pine, resin, citrus, bitter. P- Medium body, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- Had Enjoy By 10.31.15 and I must say it was decent but way overrated. Not as juicy as expected and very dank and bitter.

whoisghost (193) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2015
A light bronze to hazy orange with a creamy off white head. Pine and hay on the nose with other floral hop notes present. Fresh pine and grass with mango, grapefruit amd herbal spice flavours too. A real solid, sweet caramel malt backbone. Its a real hop bomb, not instantly but it just grows and grows, the bitterness lingers forever. The finish is incredibly silky, so smooth and so thick - this could be the best mouthfeel Ive ever had. Amazing.

rosenbergh (11389) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2015
Draught at the APEX, Portland, OR as Enjoy by 10/31. Clear golden color with a small white head. Deep fruity and honey floral hops, sweetness, mild bitterness and sweet caramel malt in the aroma. The flavor is fresh... hoppy, fruity and bitter. Not as deep as I expected for a 9.4% IIPA. Easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sulawang (1144) - - OCT 17, 2015
Visual: Pours clear golden yellow with a smallish head, micro hazy retention, sticky micro lacing, lots of steady streams. Nose: bursting fresh grapefruity citrus hops, like fresh picked, grassy (lvl-9)-pungency Attack: whipped creamy-crisp, incoming citrus hops Mid-palate: silky CO2, (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) orange-tangerine oils, toffee-citrus malts, grassy-resin Finish: super-soft hopped bitter malty sharp finish. Summary: You live for those moments when you taste something special, and this is something special. Extremely creamy silky mouthfeel, almost as if nitrogenated. Remarkably gradual hoppy bitterness, notice the stealth. Tons of hop oil. Also well-hidden ABV. Great IIPA.

Shark_Pants (716) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2015
Beautiful clear, bright orange amber pour into a spiegelau tulip. Intense aromas of orange, grapefruit, floral notes, pine, honey. Very smooth taste of honey malt, tangerine, grapefruit, lots of resin, grassy notes. Well balanced between sweet and bitter. Medium bodied and incredibly smooth with the huge 9.4% ABV completely masked. Very impressive and enjoyable.

lhns03 (103) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2015
10-31-15. Pours with a nice clear golden with an orange tint and a thick beautiful white head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of fresh squeezed tangerine and sweet orange malt with a hint of more complex spice. Taste is similar with a big bold body. You can tell its high abv, but I would not guess 9.4% from the mouthfeel. Sweetness is balanced by the bittering hops. Lingering finish of citrus oil and slight alcohol warmth. Overall another solid offering of Enjoy By, probably one of the better versions Ive had yet.

seymour (1958) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Poured from cool painted brown glass bottle into Spieglau IPA glass, a light orange amber colour, slight chill haze and suspended hop matter, with sudsy long-lasting white foam, lots of lace. Sturdy caramel-sweet maltbill holding up EXTREME hoppiness, truly one of the most intensely hoppy IPAs Ive ever tasted, even considering my own insane homebrew experiments. Quite a remarkable feat, so I can understand why they insist you drink it super fresh. Grapefruit, mango, peach, papaya, grassy, weedy, herbal, vegetal, basil, anise, black pepper, coriander, sawdust, earth, hot tomato garden, curry seasoning, foxy wine grapes, faint musk. Bewideringly complex. Severely bitter without becoming unpleasant. 13 different pungent hop varieties, added to the mash, early and late boil, whirlpool, and copious dry-hopping. The very definition of a hop bomb. At 9.4% abv, it is undeniably boozy, too much so for my taste, but (a) the alcoholic solvent aspect produces an interesting perfume effect, and (b) the beer is so unique and delicious in every other way, I cant really fault it. I think this is my first time tasting Delta and Helga hops. Of course its impossible to parse out individual varietal contributions in a nuclear explosion like this, but its still my nerdy fun fact for the day. Well-crafted, unique and audacious.
