4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Enjoy by 2/14/14. Bottled on 1/8/14 ? Hard to tell the etching on bottle is blurred but then of course that doesn’t matter as it is obvious by the bold label when to enjoy by. Well what better beer to start my rate beer account than the "Enjoy by" series. Finally decided to join the site and log my entries properly in the digital age instead of the old pen and paper routine. Amazing aroma on the nose..... Fresh citrusy and all that good stuff. Could bask in that for ever. Flavor not as hoppy as I expected however though not necessarily a bad thing and mouthfeel is a little thin. Alcohol very well hidden. Good beer. Usually don’t get the "enjoy by" series in my neck of the woods so grateful to get my hands on this one.

Bottle, enjoy by 12.13.13. Poured amber with a creamy off-white head. Aromas of pine and grapefruit rind. The flavor found grapefruit rind with a caramel backing. Medium body, mild bitterness, and a grapefruit aftertaste.

Enjoy By 12/13/13. I did not enjoy this as much as i wanted to; as a big fan of (fresh) Ruination, I never expected the intense onion aromas that carried over into the flavors. It’s definitely intense, but just did not agree with me; though I can be fickle with West Coast IPAs. All I could think of is bitter onion, and while I can see hardcore WC IPA fans maybe digging this, it was not for me.

On tap at Hackney’s Printers’ Row. "Enjoy by 12.13.13", enjoyed one day before the "enjoy by" date. Clear light amber with a thin foamy head. Aroma is nothing short of perfect; tropical and citrus fruits. Taste is nearly IPA perfection as well; resin, grassy and fruity hops, bitter finish. Medium-full body. Just awesome.
