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.

Had the enjoy by 4.20.15 at Salty Pig. Love this concept. Beer is a typical big California IPA, but it is the freshness that stands out. Such a great beer. However if I had this on April 21st, I would never drink beer again, and curse Stone

I had the Enjoy By 4.20.15 about 2 weeks after it was bottled - WOW...what an amazing beer. Amazing west coast IPA smell: danky, piney and fruity. A very pungent aroma that leaps out of the glass. The taste lives up to the smell- a perfect balance of dank, tropical fruit and pine needles. There is a gumminess on the aftertaste that, along with the grapefruit, pushes the bitterness away. The only knock I had was that it's just a little boozy on the back end. I can't wait to try the next Enjoy By.

Honey colored with light head. Truly dank hoppiness with a little sweetness at the end of the nose. Well balanced and easy drinking for a DIPA . Didn't punch me in the palate like I had expected

4.20.15. Very good. Right on point with its price equivalents/ peers, sculpin and 90 min. I enjoyed it from a 6 and looking forward to the rest by 4/20.

4.20.15

Clear straw with an orange hue and a huge white head. Pine resin, some citrus and a smack of mango in the aroma, which also carry over to the taste. Decently bitter -- but not as devastatingly dank as one might hope. A slight creaminess to the mouthfeel, and a small but noticeable alcohol punch. This is a good beer, but the bar for great DIPAs is so high these days, it just doesn't measure up.
