 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 5/17/13, enjoyed on 5/16/13, just under the wire.

A: Absolutely gorgeous. A clear golden amber with a big, rocky white head that lingers and laces. This is the platonic pale ale, appearance-wise.

S: Even with one day to go, it smells like brewday. Citrusy and resinous. Floral, a little early.

T/M: A total hop showcase, unsurprisingly. Grapefruit and other citrus. Nicely bitter, persistent but not overwhelming. A tiny bit of alcohol. Not much malt flavor to speak of. Mouthfeel's on the thick side for the style, very low carbonation.

O: I think Enjoy By is one of the better innovations in craft beer recently. Putting a hard deadline on an IPA is brilliant.

Enjoy by 05.17.13 On-tap at the Cask Republic, New Haven, CT:

Served in a tulip glass and enjoyed on 5/15/13. The appeared a nice deep amber color with a thick, rocky white head that was really well retained. The beer gave off an intense pine hop aroma with maybe a slight hint of citrus. The taste was very good...the hops, while very very upfront were not so overpowering that I was turned off by them, as happens occasionally with some DIPAs. This might be one of the best DIPAs that I have enjoyed. The beer felt good and the beer was smooth, but drinkability does suffer given the ABV. Overall, an excellent brew.

Had the 5-17-13 variety at Churchkey

A: poured a beautiful golden bronze with a large white fluffy head

S: this was one of the best smelling IPAs I have smelled. Great tropical citrus fruits and this undertone of a dank cellar aroma. Exceptional

T: matched the wonderful aroma perfectly. Just really fresh tropical citrus west coast IPA goodness. Also tasted a bit of that danky cellar on the back of the tongue

M: medium body crisp

O: this was really one of the best I have had in quite a while. Really great beer from Stone and I am glad I finally got to try it. Seek it out if you can!

Golden color, active carbonation,soapy white 2 finger head that laced nicely.

Floral,piney aromas, some grapefruit and orange tones.Smells like a winner.

Taste is impressive compared to other Stone ales I have had. There is an intense piney grapefruit flavor and it is tasty and easy drinking.Medium bodied and well carbonated.

Mouthfeel is slightly this for a IIPA,but does not detract from the overall quality.Nice aftertaste that lasts.

Overall a solid offering from Stone and not one that is easy to find. I highly recommend this tasty South Cali number.

Very pale amber, almost too pale in my opinion but looks aren't really important at all.

The scent of this beer is wonderful you just smell wonderfully aromatic hops as soon as the cap comes off.

Taste wise I can only describe it as a cascade of various hop flavors working in harmony.

Generally flavorful and enjoyable

Overall this beer reminded me a lot of the loose cannon Hop^3 IPA by heavy seas. If you like one of these beers you will like the other.
