    I think they might have IPA, but that's it. When I went a few days ago, I tried to get one. They were out! I tried to get RuinTen, and they were out of that, too. I finally settled on an Enjoy By. ALSO OUT. This turned me into a crying little bitch because I really wanted to try RuinTen on tap.

    Enjoy By doesn't count towards most bitter bar.

    You'd really have to hope that the clearest explanation is the right one, here

    Drinking one right now. So delicious. I have one more to chill and drink, probably over the long July 4th weekend.

    Shell in Friendswood still had some RuinTen today when I was there. This was way easier to get than Enjoy By 40113.

    I went out of town for a weekend and completely missed out on the most recent Enjoy By, but it is nice to see this one sitting on shelves. I've had my fill and don't need to buy any more but it is just nice to still see it.

    I have to say, I liked enjoy by 7/4 better than Ruinten.

    4/1 had no citrus taste to me at all. I never tried 7/4. I don't like ruinten at much as Ruination, but it's very close.

    4/1 had plenty of citrus on the nose, but very little in the taste which made me sad. 7/4 had more citrus, but still nowhere near 12/21. I still liked both of them and still think it makes no sense to compare Enjoy By to Ruinten (which I also liked). They may as well be different styles.

    They are both DIPAs, so I think it's ok to compare them.
