    Where did you grab it in MA? My local shops were sold out.

    We got it here in NC. Really good, I'm glad more DIPA's are being brewed in this direction instead of the sugar and alcohol bombs of late.

    i just had the 4-1-13 and was let down after remembering the 12-21-12 batch. The 4-1-13 seemed way to Piney with not nearly as much nose as I remember from the 12-21-12. Anyone else feel this way?

    If you are still looking for it in the Danville/San Ramon part of the San Francisco East Bay, the Danville BevMo has about 3 cases stacked up near the first cash register. I now have enough to last me to 4/1/13. Cheers!

    Found this today out on LI (Suffolk County out on the North Shore). Very excited to give it a try as I was not expecting it to be available.

    Am I the only one who was underwhelmed by this beer?

    Had this the other night, followed by a Sucks. While the Enjoy By was delicious, I think it spoiled my taste buds. Afterwards, the Sucks seemed to lack the juicy fruitiness that I had come to expect from it; instead, it seemed much more grainy. In any case, that doesn't take anything away from Enjoy By—tasty beer.

    WOW, I just LOVE it when I see Saratoga Springs pop up on this board. Though my family moved to So Cal in 1963 everyone on both sides our family are from Saratoga. Very cool.

    Cheers......

    just discovered a bunch of this at Khim's on Myrtle in Brooklyn. There were at least 4-5 bottles, not sure on the price. Khim's tends to be expensive in general, but in case anyone was looking, thought I'd mention it. Last day to grab it before it goes bad! ;)

    Enjoy 4/20 fresh growler sent from fellow BA VegasHopHead. First glass ever and after just taking a sip I plan to try to always have this in my fridge, definitely in my top 3

    Nope. I thought it was pretty solid (really good, actually) but it just didn't have the chutzpah I was expecting it to. All these hyped-up (D)IPAs anymore have all flavoring / aroma hops and such low bitterness. Fresh Finestkind is 5x as bitter as Enjoy By.

    I loved it but find it puzzling how everyone complains about Lag Sucks moving to 32oz bottles and what it will do to the price, yet everyone is happy to be paying the equivalent of $20 or more for what would be a 6 pack of Enjoy By.
    Let's start the movement to get this in 12oz bottles. I am not greedy, 4 or 6 packs will do.

    Agreed! Fresh finest kind is one of the most underrated beers around. I just got a lot of muddled hops and oniony grass from enjoy by, both times i had it, both on tap and out of the bottle.
    I'll take ghandi-bot any day

    Mm. Fresh Gandhi-Bot really is something special. Although, it drops off more quickly than a lot of others, I've found. And even it isn't that bitter, compared to some others. But, much more bitter than Enjoy By.
