 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.

Finally score a bomber from Siciliano's in Grand Rapids. Being a discriminating hop head, I'm very excited to try this baby. Enjoy by Feb 14, 2014, sampled on Jan 17, 2014, aka extremely fresh.

Look: Light amber color with a thin head. Excellent carbonation. Looks like angels dancing!
Smell: Welcome to the grapefruit jungle! Picking up some piney notes as well.
Taste: Outstanding, this is what we want! Hops and more hops, without being kicked in the head by an unbalanced beer. Even my wife, who is typically turned off by IPA's, enjoyed this. Maybe it's the fresh beer concept.
Feel: Just about perfect on the tongue. Nice crisp bitter feel, without the lingering, overpowering, aftertaste many unbalanced IPA's and DIPA's tend to include.
Overall: Thank you Stone. I will definitely seek this one out again. A DIPA that drinks as smoothly as an IPA. Love it!!

Definitely a piney smell and tasting imperial IPA.
I consider this as one of Stone's best creations to add to the list of top brews they create.
Taste: fairly muggy hoppy looking (classic IPA look), nothing out of the ordinary.
Smell: incredible piney with strong hoppy notes ( much more than their Stone IPA)
Taste: rush of quality hops up front, smooth taste, and great finish for a solid imperial.
Feel: Ive had a fair share of Enjoy by's. I had their enjoy by 420 ( one of my favorite)
Had another later in 2014. Same feel and finish, but hoppy notes weren't as piney as id hoped.

They used an onion hop, either CZT or Nelson, and I'm sorry but I don't want onions or garlic in my beer. Just my opinion, sorry IPA geeks.

I have tried several different dates and they are all top notch. One of my favorite IPAs out there. Nice floral scent with a smooth taste not as bitter as other Stone beers. I will buy this everytime I have the chance.
