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.

Memphis Taproom, Philadelphia tap ($6): Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is an explosion of grapefruit and citrus flavour. The person who said that this is reminiscent of Heady Topper is pretty spot on. (Of course, this is more alcoholic than the famed Heady Topper though. The taste is just the right amount of bitterness, a touch of sugar, but mostly extremely flavorful hops. When a beer lives up to the hype, it is always a treat.

Reminiscent of Heady Topper. Honey, flowers, hops. Really pleasant aroma. And that is about how all I have to say about it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Enjoy by 9/13/13 Pour is clear copper with a thick ivory head. Nose is hoppy, duh. Notes of pine and flower though there is a biscuity malt tone. Taste is interesting. Has earthy hop notes with no real citrus flavor. There is the biscuit presence with a decent balance. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall it's ok. I enjoyed RuinTen and their regular ipa much more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beerlover82 (218) - Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2013
8/27/13 Pours from tap at fabulous Stone brewing a light amber-orange with small head and minimal lacing. A strong hop bomb hits the nose and tongue, shattering the competing sweet caramel and citrus in the background. The carbonation and body are overwhelmed by the perfection of hops and hop taste. WHAM! WOW! This is hops utopia, and a real beer lover’s delight. The brewery is outstanding and serves nothing but the best beers in the world. Check them out already!!

22 oz. bottle. 9-13-13. Clear amber/ yellow color with small head. Nose is a big stone hop profile; pine, citrus and passion fruit. Flavor is all West Coast IPA. Big citrus notes with a huge pine hop notes. It tastes close to a whole hop pellets. A good amount of caramel for balance yet the pine, pine needle, resinous flavors dominate throughout the sip. Light floral hops as a undertone. Medium body with a dry texture. Long lingering bitterness. If you like big Pine hops you should really be pleased with this brew. I liked it and shared this with a friend.

Clear golden color and a distinct hoppy smell. The flavor is slightly hoppy, with a little bit of citrus in the body and the finish. Tasty.

mjpeterson812 (59) - Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Poured from bomber. Nothing all that exciting to look at. Pale clear amber, fairly big fluffy head that quickly faded. Aroma...the fun starts. Pineapple, pine, citrus, floral, HOPS, woody, pepper. First sip...so smooth! Big hop presence but not overwhelming. Bigger body than I expected. Full, creamy, thick. Fairly soft carbonation. LONG finish...dry and bitter but so nice. And this is 9.4? I’d never guess. Like others have said...I’ll be keeping my eyes open for every batch of Enjoy By!

Enjoy by 09.13.13 - 22oz. Bottle: the pour is nice and golden with a small white head, but no one wants to hear about that. The aroma is the start of this beer. It is a complex combination of citrus fruits including grapefruit, orange, pineapple, mango, hints of lemon and lime balance by mild piney, resinousy, aromas with rosemary and hints of thyme. There are of honey and malt way in the background. The blend of citrus fruits with earth, piney flavors explode on the palate creating a beautiful symphony of flavor. Finishing with some peppery spiciness. Malt take a secco fiddle to hops in the show. Malt is there just enough to keep the balance and provide a smooth mouth feel. I will purchase the new release every time i find one.
