 http://www.stonebrewing.com/enjoyby/ 

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.

Enjoy by 12/21/12
22oz Bottle
Served in a Stone 14th Anniversary Pint Glass

A: This beer surprisingly lighter in color than anticipated. My memory might be slipping but this beer seems lighter than the 9/21/12 (first) batch. Nice 1-2 finger head with some lacing. No apparent alcohol legs from this 9.4% ABV beer.

S: A strong pine scent with some grapefruit aromas are the main scent components of the beer. There is no booze aroma present.

T: Right up front there are big sticky flavors of pine with grapefruit and some tropical fruit flavors mid palate. There is a nice malty backbone that plays well with the hops. There is a nice lingering bitterness for the finish. This is a really good DIPA.

M: This beer has a sticky sweet mouthfeel. The effervescence does a good job cutting the sweetness down, leaving you the craving for the next swig.

O: Of the two versions I have had (9/21/12 and 12/21/12) this one is the better of the two. If you like big West Coast DIPA’s I would say find (or trade for) it. Recommended.
