COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 bottle, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and beer fans. 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.

Great IPA. Very fresh and hoppy. Aroma is hops and grassy, while the palate is left with a smooth bitterness of a nice double IPA.

Enjoy by 2/14/14. Huge piney and citrus aroma on the nose. White head with good head retention and lacing on the glass. The beer has a very slight haze. Hop flavor is big with piney hops dominating and mild grapefruit in the background. Malt flavor plays a backseat but is sufficient. The beer is medium body body with medium- high carbonation. The hop bitterness is nice and smooth. Overall, it's a great tasting double ipa (9.4% abv). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow what a big IPA. Getting a floral, grapefruit aroma from it. Not for your first time ipa drinkers.

Draft, slaters. Comes with a creamy white head. Bright aroma and very floral. Taste matches. Extreme floral taste followed by light citrus and finished by the perfect bitterness that accentuates the flavor rather than overwhelming it. Not much malt, but very refreshing. Could drink all day. Superb.

furthur (101) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Enjoy by 2/14/14 bottle. Big cream soda head, crystal clear amber body. Spruce, orange and grapefruit, faint caramel nose. Taste is juniper, grapefruit, and a bit of alcohol. This beer has some body, it's a bitter finish without astringency, and fine, light carbonation. This is a refreshing juniper grapefruit delight.

Second bottle of the 02.14.14...tastes better than the one I opened a couple of weeks ago. That one was a little tight...I feel like this has opened up a lot more. Very floral aroma with a fresh grapefruit-citrus flavor that is backed up by just enough hops. Great beer.

Draft @ the tipsy crow San Diego! Hazy orange in colour, good fine head. This stuff actually smells of intense passion fruit.

Beerathon (960) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Enjoy By 2-14-14 is easily the best smelling beer I’ve had the pleasure of putting my nose to. Huge tropical fruits billow forth the glass, especially enticing pineapple. The flavor profile hits on the same notes as well as a yummy sweetness from the malt and spicy zip from the hops. Great beer, as it doesn’t get any better than this in the beer world.

Version 02-14-14. Une bière très ronde, avec un très beau corps et qui présente peu de défauts à chacun des niveaux du spectre de la dégustation. Le nez est fruité, mais moins agrumé que je l’aurais cru : le sucre du malt est bien présent et influence le tout. J’aime beaucoup l’impression en bouche, c’est rond et très "complet" comme expérience. Je gagerais beaucoup que Stone utilise une levure maison pour cette bière, car elle a une signature plutôt particulière, comme la Heady Topper en a également une. Elle n’entrera peut-être pas dans mon top 5, mais la Enjoy By est définitivement une excellente IPA!
