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.

Poured on tap as well as bottle. Pours clean gold with a healthy white head along with beautiful fresh lacing that lasts well throughout. Aroma is a nice grapefruit, citrus and floral scent. Flavor is a complete hop explosion, citrus, grapefruit, really nice floral bittering hops also, very subtle malt backbone. Definitely a nice and fresh hoppy IPA!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice glass. 05.17.13 batch bottled on 04/12/13.

Appearance: Pours a bright and clear copper golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About two fingers of white head that slowly fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A big and bold hoppy aroma with lots of citrus fruit and earthy pine. Strong ripe tropical citrus fruit presence upfront with big hints of grapefruit, orange, mango, pineapple, tangerine, papaya, melon, and lemon. Also some hints of spicy pine resin and earthy grassy hops. Some sweet malt in the background with hints of biscuit, caramel, and yeast. Also some hints of candy like sugar and honey. Very hop forward and juicy.

Taste: Like the smell hints, a big bitter taste of fresh hops with lots of citrus and pine. Big ripe citrus fruit taste with notes of grapefruit, orange, mango, tangerine, pineapple, melon, papaya, and lemon. Strong dank taste of pine resin. Earthy notes of grass. Some sweet malt in the background with notes of bready biscuit, grain, caramel, and yeast. There is some sweetness coming from a little candy sugar and honey like notes. Huge hop driven taste. Very good.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very juicy and oily. Very drying finish. Alcohol heat is hidden by the heavy bitter hops.

Overall: A great West Coast imperial IPA. Very good taste of citrus and pine spice that is very fresh.

Enjoy By 5.17.13

Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into an Upland pint glass.

A: Beautiful clear gold with a one-finger white head. Carbonation visible in large bubbles, but seems a little low.

S: Huge nose on this. Smell-it-from-three-feet-away kind of huge. Big grapefruit, pine, mango/tropical fruit, grassy, dank and some cat pee. All of these dwarfing the biscuit sweet malts but not overwhelming them entirely.

T: Follows the nose, with some more melon/spice hops and less citrus than the aroma. Hop bitterness in the finish but not overdone. Obviously a hop-forward beer, but drags a toe closer the the balanced line than I expected.

M: Light body for DIPA, good carbonation. The hefty ABV is very well-hidden.

O: I'm quite impressed. The hop profile isn't my first choice, but the elements work in harmony. My first Enjoy By iteration, but hopefully it won't be the last. Excellent beer.

On tap at Sonka's Irish Pub, Terre Haute, IN. Poured a wonderfully deep burnished gold with a bit of decent head and some nice lacing. Huge deep malt sweetness in the nose with a wonderfully piney-citrusness. Same with the flavor, a huge malt sweetness with great caramel tones and a nice citrus start and pine end to the hop flavors. A bit thick and rough, but not bad for a 9+% brew. Excellent stuff.

A. This beer is crystal clear, dull rust bronze color. It has a big foamy white head that leaves a ton of lacing. There are sporadic bubbles that make their way up the glass.

S. Extremely hoppy scent. A bit of weed. Cascade hops?

T. Very interesting flavor. It is a fruity IPA. It has a solid hop taste. There's a grape taste and a caramel sweetness. Perhaps the fruity taste is more of a citrus, as the aftertaste would indicate.

M. It has a medium body and a smooth carbonated feel to it.

O. Absolutely wonderful, complex flavor. Balanced and tamed...doesn't go over the top...which works perfect.

Recently had the 9.13.13: Also fantastic double IPA with a wonderful grassy taste and caramel hops.

This is my review for the Enjoy By 12 21 12, on draught.

This beer is my favorite of the moment. Tremendously tasty.

This pours a warm glowing-amber golden in color with thin foam & lacing that lingers around for the long haul. Great aroma, full of orange citrus and marmalade, some tangerine, a bit of pine. It’s pleasing & hoppy, big & vibrant, fresh smelling and full of gobs of hops.

Tastes amazing—the flavor is layers of hop heaven with a bitter bite at the end of each sip. There’s pine and citrus and tangerine and orange and grass and an underlying dankness which I just love.

There’s enough of a malt profile to hold up to the hoppy assault with a light toasted biscuit note that emerges as it warms. Holds up as a sipper but its also an easy drinker and hides the ABV well.

enjoy by 7.4.14 650ml poured into snifter. enjoyed 6/17/14 so half way to "expiry"

nice citrus and floral nose. has some slight bitterness on the nose. really hop forward taste, loads of citrus, floral notes, and a slightly bitter and astringent finish. also notice an odd flavor I cant pinpoint in there but it doesnt detract from the fact that this "devastatingly fresh" ipa is ridiculously good. thanks to @64vdub for the hookup!

Enjoy by 10.31.14 opened 10.20.14 at Craft Beer Market with Jodi from the Stone sales team. Much like the previous with a nice malt profile, gteat citrus taste and not a harsh bitterness
