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.

deaconmike (470) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Enjoy by 2/14/14. Bomber poured into a snifter. Cloudy golden amber with a white bubbly head that dissipates to a thin cap. Very hoppy aroma - floral, tropical fruit and grapefruit rind along with a touch a caramel malt sweetness, also a bit dank. Taste is decidedly bitter with only a touch of sweetness from the caramel malt. Lots of citrus along with apricot. Long, dry bitter finish. Medium body and quite crisp. Very nice fragrant, juicy DIPA.

Alpha10 (693) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
2014/02/02 - Batch 02.14.14. Pours a clear copper colour with a three finger, foamy, off-white head that lingers and leaves modest lacing. Aroma is pine and floral hops, citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is grapefruit, orange rind, mango, pine and mildly sweet malts. Aftertaste is pine and mildly sweet malts. Mouthfeel is somewhat oily with lively carbonation and a sharp, bitter and drying finish. Awesome DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radarsock (1173) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Batch Number: 2/14/14. $8.50 for the full pint purchased at the Grog last Friday evening. Pours an effervescent gold with which fashioned a nonexistent, whitish ringed head looming atop. Smells and tastes of cotton, edamame, American hops, clementine peel, and sea salt. Bitey finish, which had also managed to explore plastic, buckwheat, and California yeast. Respectably potable and bone-dry. This is indeed a good DIPA, and and an even better representation of the style, but I feel like Ive had this kind of DIPA before. Nothing outrageously unique, but its solid and wonderfully crafted, and to some people thats all that matters.

jdobbs (411) - New Brunswick, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
bottle. 2-14-14. Clear orange pour with a finger of white head. Citrus, pine, almond, spice. String carbonation. Medium body and creamy and slightly bitter and citrus finish. Hides the alcohol. Awesome

First sniffing this beer you will smell the wonderful hops that IPA drinkers can appreciate. The taste of this beer is delicious hops. Not overpowering hops but just pure deliciousness.

lefossoyeur (608) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Batch 02-14-14. Clear golden with almost no head, just a very thin veil. Aroms is mostly grape, soapy with a touch herbal. Medium body, low carbonation, big Nelson sauvignon signature with lots of grape, grassiness and finishes on this grapy note. Not their best in this series of Enjoy By... 7-3-7-3-13 Had to re-reate this with the fantastic batch 4-20-14 Super nice berry/tropical fruit profile. Passion fruit all the way. Absolutely awsome 2IPA in this version. 9-4-9-3-17

bursprak (2752) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2014
Enjoy by 04.14.14. Extra aqcuired in a trade. Shared 22 oz bomber. Pours clear light bronze with a medium head. Nose is full of tropical fruits, peaches, pineapple and grapefruit. Taste is hoppy/fruity upfront, again grapefruit and some passionfruits as well. After the refreshing start the bitterness really kicks in, like a punch in the face. Finishes really bitter with some sweet notes. Enjoyed it but a bit to bitter and unbalanced to rate it higher.

radio_nowhere (1453) - Maryland, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Enjoy By 02-14-14 bomber into snifter glass, amberish golden color with off-white head. Aroma of strong dank citrus (grapefruit, lemon, orange) and piney hops with slight malt sweetness. Taste is certainly a hop bitter hit, adding some earthiness to citrus/pine (resin) notes, some spiciness, slight nuttiness and light caramel malt sweetness. Medium body, low carbonation, dry, crisp, slightly oily with bitter hop finish. This lives up to the hype, great fresh hoppy DIPA.
