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.

2-14-14 batch - unfortunately a month & 1/2 past the date. Nevertheless, good cloudy orange pour w/ a big white head that leaves a lot of lacing. The aroma is a good hop concoction of citrus & pine. The mouthfeel is smooth for an ipa! The fruity flavors make this very drinkable w/out leaving much bitterness at all lingering. Pretty tasty & nearly sessionable at 9.4%. Just makes me wonder how much better this beer was "fresh."

The massive grapefruit and fruit rind nose is a powerful precursor of things to come. This is a powerhouse DIPA in the spirit of Stone’s epic Ruin Ten DIPA. Biting and slightly astringent hoppiness featuring Grapefruit, orange and orange rind, and some pepper, gradually blend into the soft sweet malts that underpin the big taste. A work of art!

A beautiful hoppy aroma. Pours a light golden amber with a bright yellow-white head. Starts smoothly with a delicious piney flavor. A truly fantastic double IPA that lives up to its label, "devastatingly dank".

Enjoy by 4/20/14. Clear light amber, golden, pour with a very nice head and long retention lacing. Nose of sweet citrus (mango, orange) over a light grapefruit and earthy dankness background. Light medium bodied with a slick texture. Normally carbonated with no effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is a blend of hop flavors over a slight biscuit sweetness with a low level of bitterness. It begins with the sweet citrus flavors which are soon overpowered by the dank earthy hop components. While complex, the flavor is heavily "dankcentric" - lol. On the smooth finish, you get a bit of biscuit sweetness flowing into the dankcentric vortex coupled with a nice residual alcohol tingle at the back of the throat. An exceptional beer that those which wonder what dank means should try.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 I’ve received some cool birthday presents in my life, but I can’t recall receiving a gift that I’ve loved as much as the green bottle that said Enjoy By 4.20.14 IPA. This is a beer that I’ve wanted to have for a long-ass time. When the opportunity finally came along in the form of a belated present, I feared that it couldn’t possibly live up to my expectations. Man, was I wrong. The first whiff of piney and citrusy hops was enough to make me fall in love. But I was just getting started. My tasting of Enjoy By IPA revealed woodsiness, grapefruit tartness, and a HUGE peppery spice. True to the West Coast fashion, Stone makes some aggressively-hopped ales. Enjoy By IPA has every bit of that manic power, yet, it’s smooth and reserved in a way that I couldn’t have imagined. Dank and potent - yes. However, this beer isn’t the least bit punishing. It’s an amazing experience to have a beer that’s been brewed to be enjoyed fresh. Thanks to the 4.20,14 release of this beer, I’ll have another date to remember: 3.31.14. At this point in time, Enjoy By IPA is my favorite beer.

From the tap poured an amber color with asmall amount of head. Strong hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

Enjoy by 4.20.14. Nice blend of citrus and pine with some sticky sweetness and hints of burnt sugar.

Advocate_Ames (508) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Pours a clear light reddish copper with a soft carbonation that left a ring of foam that hugged my glass. The aroma has a musky floral and citrus hop notes with a sweet malt character. The flavor is of sweet crystal malts, moderate critus taste, mild bitterness, slight booze, with a resin of grassy hop flavor. This beverage was smooth and very drinkable. Overall a good tasty brew.

Draft. Small white head on a slightly hazy reddish beer. Nose is full of citrus and grapefruit. Taste is initially sweet then a ton of hops hit you. Well balanced bitterness. Much like.

4/20/14 Pours a mostly clear bright orange color, creamy white head. Citrusy, danky hop aroma. More danky, citrusy hop character in the flavor. Decent amount of bitterness, finishes fairly smooth.
