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.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Pours a medium amber golden with a nice, tight cream colored head. Solid IPA with full floral and pine hop presence and well balanced malt.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Harsh alcohol, medicinal lengths and plastic-like moments attack this Double IPAs floral and citrusy hops, bewildering the palate completely.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the translucent golden.
-The mouthfeel was lean and geared towards drinkability.
-However, the booming alcohol made this awful on the drinkability scale.
-I have no idea why this one got served... My palate was fresh as well, having just had a pint of their wonderful Go To IPA before it. Id like to fault myself here, but I dont see what I could have done wrong in this case.
-Will try it again since its gotten so many great ratings. Surely there must have been something awry with the glass, the tap line, something...

On tap at Stone Liberty Station.

Aggiebob (1047) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle of Enjoy By 07-04-15. It poured a clear golden yellow with a white head that left a small amount of lace. The aroma was floral and citrus. The flavor was grapefruit, pine, and other citrus fruits. It was well balance and easy to drink. It was my first Enjoy by, so I will definitely try another version to experience the changing flavors.

euniceradio (522) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2015 Enjoy By 07.04 1512oz bottle to cervoise. Also had it in tap; much better from bottle. Perfect clear copper color. White head, good lacing. Aroma of pine, grass, dank, pineapple, mango, grapefruit. Taste is acidic bitters, pine, cedar, spice, pepper, a little caramel, some roasted malts, citrus peel, onion and cracker. Complex. Lots of flavors. Damned good. Finish has a little heat although it is a little short. 9/2/15 is the same but with more emphasis on tropical fruit. 10/31/15 is the same but more peppercorn and spice with a lighter mouthfeel (on tap)

badhack (550) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 23, 2015
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.

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.
