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.

Sought this out, like many of us. Found at a Lq in Hockessin, De on 3/27. So pretty fresh. Poured into a Brewdog 2/3 pint glass. Pours a orange golden amber with finger and half of off white foam that recedes quickly, but, remains as a small ring around the edge. Small effervescent bubbles. Aroma is overripe mango, citrus, pine, and alcohol. The flavor follows... initially, but eventually gives way to the piney hops. Small amounts of caramel malt break through the pine but only grudgingly. The beer ends with a nice bite and just a little bit of malty sweetness. Top notch beer from a respected craft brewery. I would enjoy this by 4/20 again.

By 4.20.14; HIGH floral hops aroma! Beautiful thick 1"off-white head small foamy bubbles, moderate lacing. Clear pale amber liquid. Well balanced but hops-forward taste with pleasant fresh floral aftertaste. Moderate body and warmth. Wonderful fresh hoppy beer and a new favorite 2x IPA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2014 Enjoy By 04-20-14 Pours a slightly hazy dark golden.. nice white head and lacing. The brew is a tropical fruitbowl... but has some other hoppiness going on.. Summit? a bit of garlic like aroma Smells fantastic. Flavor is about what you would expect.. very hoppy... finishes remarkably dry given the ABV... just enough maltiness mid palate to really deliver the hops. Body and carbonation are as expected.... Drinkability is great... I really enjoyed it.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 Pours a clear that orange with white head. Has a strong citrus hop, floral hop, and pine aroma. Has an intense and strong citrus hop taste with some pine. A delayed aftertaste of strong bitter hops. Tasted: 4/20/14, 7/4/14

4-20-14 (can’t believe I haven’t reviewed the many previous Enjoy By) Poured from a bottle into a pint glass golden with a thick white head that stayed for so long. Aroma is sweet hops which I can easily say I know it’s a Stone Brew without even looking at the bottle. Classic balance of off the map grassy piney hops & malts. Nothing to complain about a fresh brew such as this.

04.20.14. Big dank nose. Impressive bitter hop bite up front, well balanced bready malt backbone, finishes with a lingering thick mouthfeel. Great brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4-20-14 bottle. incredibly fresh as it suggests, and has very strong notes of grapefruit with just the right bitterness, and even with a 9.4 abv its almost impossible to detect any alcohol. overall a damn fine beer

Yellow pour, small white head. Big hoppy aroma of citrus and spruce. Flavor is EXTREMELY hoppy; grapefruit, resin and grass. Tongue strippingly bitter and dry.

Pretty darn close to perfect. The smell is of chronic weed. Looks great, but taste even better! Citrusy, dank, funky, and delicious all at the same. In my top 3, definitely. Keep on drining...
