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.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2012 Rating #2500! I had hoped my trajectory would take me past one of these beers, preferably on draft. So how lucky that I happened to notice it was on tap at Maria’s, right along the way home from the IIT campus. Draft IPA tulip, $6. Smell is amazingly hoppy as one might expect mostly grass, with a little note of pine resin. Currently, the bartender has set a bottle of watermelon liqueur in front of me for mixing, and a patron next to me has been out dulling his senses with cigars. But yes, there’s some citrus in the grapefruit family, too. Color is on the lighter side of an IPA, more gold than amber. Taste is an expected smackdown of hops that helps blow the memory of the cigar guy out of my olfactory. Hop smell stays strong through the glass. They also keep a big bitter aftertaste on the top part of my tongue that amplifies the malts more than they probably are. That is, a lighter malt as befits its color, with little caramel roast to it, just a small stage for the hops to work their magic. The alcohol shows up, with a warning that I might set that aerosol flavor spray the bartender’s using on fire. Stays pretty bright in taste and texture. I;m still not feeling the octane internally, but it’s likely a good thing this is just a 12-ounce glass. Though the malts are light in color, they are definitely, um, making a statement. Any spills down the side of the glass get very sticky right away. A very complex hop bill sets this limited limited release aside from the others, and made me want to vote to make sure it comes back to Chicago on the next go-round.

B. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Full disclosure, I had the 'enjoy by 10/31/17' on 11/20/17 so it's possible it's not at peak freshness. That being said, it's full of flavor and not too bitter.

Enjoy By 10.31.17. On tap at JL Beers. Clear golden pour with a white head. Tropical fruits and a little grassy with hints of citrus. Really nice IPA, bright and fresh.

Lacho (109) - USA - OCT 29, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 Pours golden with a thin head that lingers. First aromas upfront of peach, tangerine and cherry. The alcohol content is noticeable but is very well balanced at first sip. This is a strong IPA, floral, piney notes give way to cherry and citrus, tart fruit cocktail.

Taster Stone Liberty Station. Pours copper, no head. Honey, biscuity, dried herbs aroma. Fantastic full mouthfeel. It's dense, dry, subtle but clearly really well made. Great.

Mindwarp (294) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 7, 2017
This is the enjoy by 10-31-17 version. Pours a nice gold with small white head. Slight floral hoppy aroma. Taste is a nice mix of hops with a bit of bitterness. This is my first Enjoy By IPA and I've heard they are different, i dont know, but I really like this type of IPA

Bottle 5.29.17: Drank it a little late but still good. Murky gold yellow with a white head. Wet hop with a barnyard aroma. Hop aftertaste. Thin body.
