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.

Pours a nice golden color with a medium head that leaves a little lacing. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit and the bitterness of the hops. Strong hoppy notes at the beginning, middle and end, with a touch of citrus, and a little malt to balance the immense hoppiness.worth seeking out.

zach8270 (3779) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 26, 2013
(bottle - 22 oz - 9/13/13) Clear amber pour with a thick white head. Big aroma and pine resin nose overtop my favorite citrus hints for a DIPA. You know there’s a lot of hops coming your way. Peppery hops and big citrus at the front of the aroma with a big pine middle and a heavy hop and floral finish. Sweet and bitter finish. Really nicely put together.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Great concept for a double IPA. Clear amber color, moderate to large head, good lace/retention. Aroma is strong resin with notes of grapefruit, pine, citrus, caramel. Pretty straightforward, don’t expect anything new here. Regardless, what’s here is good. Medium to full body, high bitterness, quite drinkable, strong resin flavor dominates.

Bottle of Enjoy By 9/13/13 shared on 9/7/13 during the Foothills BA Sexual Chocolate release. Big citrus taste with a styrofoam and pine finish. Fairly good but not particularly memorable.

suprchunk (2507) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2013
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.

emacgee (4278) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2013
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 (629) - 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!
