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.

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... its huge and very very drinkable. Really damn good.

Boutip (6208) - 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 alcohols 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!

rouhlas (3353) - 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.

pjames317 (94) - Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Deceptively light in body and color for a 9.4%, this beer was poured into a tulip and almost immediately you can detect the hops just billowing from the glass, Highly fragrant and dank. Resinous, piney hops piled on top of fruit forward grapefruit and tangerine. This ones an absolute onslaught of hops on the palate. Usually for an IIPA this big youd expect some perceptive and somewhat overpowering malt backbone to restrain the profile but this one doesnt hide its intent to glorify the hop. Could see how things might go south quickly if Enjoy By is not consumed fresh and flavors begin to morph. Firm bittnerness throughout. Bright, sappy pine flavors. Mildly chalky mouthfeel with a faint trace of alcoholic warmth. Not my every day choice but every once in a while? Sure.

Have had this a few times, most recently a bottle of 12/26/14. Maybe once, it tasted the way I imagine the brewer intending it. But truly I dont think any of them have failed to disappoint. Never that fresh bright hoppy clarity I crave in a strong IPA. I may try to pick one up in Pennsylvania next time around, one that has never been handled by Hunterdon Brewing. Not to cast aspersions, but the incidence of truly fresh IPAs in New Jersey is terribly rare. I cant imagine what is happening with these beers that sees the hops seem so muted so early. Of course, maybe its me.

12-26-14 consumed on 12-7-14. Gold color and fairly clear, excellent head. Fruity aroma with some sweet malt as well. Really quite yummy. The alcohol surprised me ... really an all round winner here.

Bottle. EB 12.26.14 Resinous, pineapple, mild booze, simple bready malt. Flavors taste washed out, solid, warming finish.
