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.

Clear golden colored pour. Small white head that quickly disappears. Little bit of splotchy lacing. Huge hop aroma. Little pine, and a lot of citrus. Very hoppy up front. Some malt follows and a bit of a peppery spicy note. Pretty dang good. I will enjoy this.

Very clean and sharp golden yellow with one finger of white head. Very fresh pour, as expected. Lots of fresh fruit and resin with citrus rind and oily hop notes. Very leafy and nuanced aroma. Very resinous and oily hop notes in the flavor, green and citrusy. Medium full body.

gorditoabd (622) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 25, 2013
10-25-13. Bomber from BevMo Santee. Pours a luscious dark amber. Plenty of fluffy white foam from an aggressive pour. Nose is an explosion of passion and citrus fruits with just hints of floral and pine qualities. Taste is all the nose suggested and more. Exquisite of sweet, fruity flavors, clean malt body, excellent bittering pine notes, and a lovely finish that caps off a palate that hides the ABV so, so well. Mouthfeel is just the right combo of creamy and oily and smooth. Amazing.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 Several bomber and draft pours over the past few months. I appreciate the forward thinking and creativity of Stone and that is why it’s one of the best craft breweries on the planet. Enjoy by is a great DIPA that is available year round -- a major bonus! Although it’s not my favorite Stone DIPA (Ruinten), Enjoy By has a great classic hop taste to it. I love the subtle yet complex bitterness. The grapefruit and line stick out on this one.

Solid DIPA, nice, creamy, bitter, no big notes of alcohol; I loved it. Not sure why it need to be drank fresh, but I have enjoyed it, solid!

I drank this on 9/14 on tap. Today is my birthday. It is a devastatingly nice looking and tasty IPA. I?ve tried them all and this is the best. The most beautiful lacing I’ve ever seen.

tambrico (50) - New York, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Currently drinking this 9/13/13 version on its last day of "freshness" . Aroma is very piney and hoppy. Pours a light amber with a very thin white head. Very citrusy taste, pine notes in there as well. Bitter throughout, but the finish is even more bitter. This is a quality DIPA offering, but I’m actually a little bit disappointed that I don’t like this as much as ruination. Perhaps this doesn’t have the sweetness or the smoothness to match ruination. Perhaps I’ll give another one of these a try when they’re fresh.

solidfunk (3605) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 13, 2013
This really is a superior IPA. UP there with the Hill Farmsteads I recently had for sure. This beer brings serious game, and I’m just under the due date on my bottle. I can imagine what it’s like even fresher. Citrus, booze and sweet malt. Even some florals. Pours dark amber with good head and lacing. I prefer this to the ruination. Cheers to quick shipping power. Bottle from Premier Gourmet.

Nuffield (3658) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Not being a brewer myself, I don’t quite understand this. I understand why cheap lagers would need a sell-by date, but I don’t get why a high abv/gravity beer like this is better off sold this way. I’ve had plenty of DIPAs that are great when aged and there’s plenty going on here to keep it lively. Even so, this was a compelling beer. The aroma was especially resplendent with grapefruit, big orange citrus, and floral veins. The flavor wasn’t all that, but was still extremely drinkable and balanced, with little hint of the alcohol. Solid body, too. Excellent. Batch 9-13-13. (on tap, Happy Gnome, St. Paul)
