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 label, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and consumers. 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.

Presentation: Awesome looking bottle with extremely eye-catching painted on graphics and font. Gives really nice back-story on the beer, web info, ABV info, bottled on date(4-12-13), states “Enjoy Now”, “Live For The Now, The Present”, “There Is No Better Time Than Right Now To Enjoy This Beer”. Awesome!

Appearance: Allowed to warm for 10min before pouring into a 16oz snifter from 22oz bomber. An aggressive pour lead to a very clear yellowish orange beer with a 2 finger tightly packed off white head of a medium density. Head retention was 4min 12sec before fading to a thick bubbly coating and ring. Excellent lacing.

Smell/Aroma: Smells very fresh with a dominate citrus hop aroma. Hints of lemon, orange, and sweet grapefruit. Also has strong pine resin and grassy scent with slight hints of tropical fruit, maybe mango.

Flavor/Taste: Taste is fresh and exceptional with hints of pine resin hops and a slight bready malt backbone that turns juicy with a lemon citrus hop flavor on the finish.

MouthFeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied and slightly chewy with a perfect amount of carbonation. Extremely drinkable and tasty.

Overall/Comments: FRESH!!! 05.17.13 version. For me Enjoy By is rivaled only by the fresh Stone IPA that I tasted while visiting Stone Brewing Company in 2011. The alcohol is undetectable in the nose and palette. Any IPA lover will be in heaven with Enjoy By. Classified as an American Double/Imperial IPA @ 9.4% ABV. Consumed 4/25/2013.
