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.

Beerathon (1449) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Enjoy By 2-14-14 is easily the best smelling beer I’ve had the pleasure of putting my nose to. Huge tropical fruits billow forth the glass, especially enticing pineapple. The flavor profile hits on the same notes as well as a yummy sweetness from the malt and spicy zip from the hops. Great beer, as it doesn’t get any better than this in the beer world.

electrotype (320) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2014
Version 02-14-14. Une bière très ronde, avec un très beau corps et qui présente peu de défauts à chacun des niveaux du spectre de la dégustation. Le nez est fruité, mais moins agrumé que je l’aurais cru : le sucre du malt est bien présent et influence le tout. J’aime beaucoup l’impression en bouche, c’est rond et très "complet" comme expérience. Je gagerais beaucoup que Stone utilise une levure maison pour cette bière, car elle a une signature plutôt particulière, comme la Heady Topper en a également une. Elle n’entrera peut-être pas dans mon top 5, mais la Enjoy By est définitivement une excellente IPA!

bellco33 (448) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Poured from 02-14-14 bottle into tulip: Pours golden with a large white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and a decent amount of malt. Taste is heavy pine, a little citrus, caramel. A litle sweet up front but balances well with the hops. Lots of pine on the back end. Medium body, medium carbonation, a bit astringent. This is really similar to Long Trail Limbo but 5x the price. Good beer but I probably won’t buy it a second time.

Ferris (6782) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
Draft - Lots of orange and sweet malts. Clear orange gold with a decent white head. Up front bitterness with orange peel and some malty candy sweetness. Decent, but I prefer their other IPA’s.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Bright golden straw body. Crisp and tight malt profile. Strong fruit notes mainly consisting of sweet pear, pineapple, grapefruit, and orange. Some good caramel sweetness with a bit of fresh biscuit and assorted cereal grains. Sharp piney hop component with some zesty lemongrass and the slightest of pepper on the finish.

Piney almost juniper smell. Nice hoppy Taste. Not sure I'm as big a fan of the expiration date concept as others. But overall a really good IpA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Guerde (1207) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2014
(the 02-14-14 bottle) Pours a clear gold color with a large white head that quickly settles to a medium cap and leaves a smattering of lacing. Aroma possesses a decent hit of hoppiness with pine, mint, maybe some orange, and a medicinal smell which doesn’t really interrupt the aroma, but provides an interesting and odd addition to it. Flavor holds some crushed orange flavored vitamins, caramel covered orange peel, booze heat, grapefruit and pine. The pine and grapefruit is there in spades on the finish, and it doesn’t really mix well with the booze presence. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is appropriate. Well, I won’t be buying these again.

deaconmike (415) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Enjoy by 2/14/14. Bomber poured into a snifter. Cloudy golden amber with a white bubbly head that dissipates to a thin cap. Very hoppy aroma - floral, tropical fruit and grapefruit rind along with a touch a caramel malt sweetness, also a bit dank. Taste is decidedly bitter with only a touch of sweetness from the caramel malt. Lots of citrus along with apricot. Long, dry bitter finish. Medium body and quite crisp. Very nice fragrant, juicy DIPA.

Alpha10 (402) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
2014/02/02 - Batch 02.14.14. Pours a clear copper colour with a three finger, foamy, off-white head that lingers and leaves modest lacing. Aroma is pine and floral hops, citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is grapefruit, orange rind, mango, pine and mildly sweet malts. Aftertaste is pine and mildly sweet malts. Mouthfeel is somewhat oily with lively carbonation and a sharp, bitter and drying finish. Awesome DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
