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 from 12 oz bottle into a snifter glass. Poured clear dark honey blonde with some orange. Nice cream colored head. Citrus aromas on the nose. Hoppy on the front end with a smooth finish. Fresh tasting, citrusy flavor. I would highly recommend. Was skeptical of the 'drink by' that the beer vendor was trying to sell me on but it does taste very fresh and the 10 different hops I found interesting.

Wow! I’m a huge fan of Stone/Arrogant Bastard brewing. I’ve been drinking Ruination 2.0 since day one. It has always been my favorite IPA until now. Enjoy By has set a new standard in hops overload and freshness. I sweet, bitter tastes from beginning to end. Simply a refreshing beer that is amazing. If you like hops and quality beer, then look no further. This is the beer to get.

12oz bottled 9/24/17 poured into a teku glass at fridge temp 9.4% ABV. The beer pours bright light honey in color with a hint of orange. The head is off white, sticky and persistent. Lacing is prevalent. The aroma is pine, citrus and light honey. The taste is semisweet caramel, pine and citrus in classic west coast style. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, adequately carbonated and bitter & dry in the finish. Overall, still outstanding. This EB 10/31/17 is the first I've tried in years. The last few times I had it (2015), I was overwhelmed with onion aroma that I could not get over. This is back on point.

This beer is just a great clean and balanced double IPA. Its just the right level of bitter and sweet. The taste is clean and refreshing, with hints of citrusy mango, pineappley tasting goodness. After taking part in the NEIPA craze lately, I always forgot how great the classic tastes are.

This maybe the best all around beer that is pretty easy to seasonally acquire.
Always a solid release and look forward to every few months it comes out.
Delicious from bottle or tap, but try to get it as fresh as possible for premium delight

4 oz pour, small tulip, Best By 10/31/17.

Clear golden rod with a small off white head.

Full and juicy nose with tangerine, kiwi, yuzu.

Orange and tangerine, juicy, resinous, and closes out with medium bitterness. It's on the dry side and the alcohol is well hidden.

Drying with soft carbonation.

It isn't as intensely hoppy as promised. It's a good double IPA that avoids being sweet or boozy.
