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.

Enjoy By 05.17.13 - Golden pour with a white head that leaves behind a nice lacing. Amazing aroma, big time citrus and floral earthy hops. The flavor is equally bold, very bitter citrus hops, a malty backbone but the alcohol is quite noticeable.

Has the smell of citrusy/fruity hops. Maybe a peach like flavor as well? Would be interesting to drink this beer while eating a peach. Taste is malt sweetness up front, although obviously a lot of hop bitterness. Very thick, slight hint of alcohol. Really good beer.

Finally got my hands on one of these. Pours copper clear with a small withe dusting. Aroma is tropical hop with citrus. Taste is dry floral and citrus hop bitterness anf dryness. Well balanced with sweet caramel malts. Just a real easy drinking beer. Awesome.

DeliveryDriver (170) - Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2013
Pours clear and golden with 1 finger of white head that does not dissipate and leaves great lacing. Had piney and citrus aromas. Was slightly bitter with not a lot of malt backbone. Slight spice and lemon aftertaste. Medium bodied and easy to drink. I don’t know why people go nuts when this beer comes out when Ruination is available year round (and much better).

mikesaum (596) - Newark, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2013
Batch 5/17/13 pours golden orange with good one finger white head, bits of lacing. Aroma is a combo of so many hop notes, but citrus zest and pine are dominant, but there are resiny and floral notes as well, a malt backbone that helps and doesn’t overpower the star in this beer. Taste is awesome , big blows of juicy tropical flavor mainly mango, hints of pineapple, grapefruit bitterness, a small moment of sweet caramel before a bitter resiny pine finish that lingers forever. Great DIPA, but i still am in love with the ruination 10th anniversary brew, wish they’d bring it back for another round.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2013
Enjoy by 05.17.13. Bottled on 04/12/13. 22 fl oz / 650mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cool. Aroma: Hop storm! Lemon, citrus, and lots of nice hops. Love the way this smells. Appearance: Transparent dark yellow, head doesn’t linger too long. Nothing too crazy going on here... Taste: Exceptionally hoppy. Some nice malt to back it up too. There’s something else that I can’t quite pinpoint...It’s not fruit, it’s not malt or hops, but it’s maybe a grain? Delicious stuff though. Palate: Flavors linger. Full bodied. Lots of presence. Overall: Delicious fresh beer. I had one of the Enjoy By 02.15.13s, but no more came to southern Arizona until this batch (EB 05.17.13)! STONE PLEASE KEEP SENDING BATCHES TO SOUTHERN AZ AND I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER AND EVER.

greenh0rn (13) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2013
Pours a golden orange with minimal head. Hops are apparent when cold, dissipate a bit as it warms. True west coast IPA, with strong citrus notes, especially grapefruit. Love the way it bites the tongue. One of the best DIPAs out there, lucky enough to have enjoyed 2.15.13 and now 5.17.13. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

iheartmnbeer (7) - Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2013 does not count
22 oz. Bottled on 4/12/13. Usual IPA color with a orangish yellow hue. Hints of citrus and grapefruit. Aroma is hoppy along with taste. Being a 2xIPA it leaves you feelin pretty warm toward the end of the bottle. It’s very good, and deserves a solid 4ish rating. Looking forward to grabbing another in the series when it comes this way.

These finally showed up in MN with the 5-17-2013 bottle. Awesome aromas and very drinkable with the bitterness. Pretty close to the best in this category, but just a notch below.

At Butcher and the Boar at a Founders tap takeover but I thought I’d switch it up. I preface with the fact i am not a huge IPA fan but this beer is good. Floral and citrusy aroma with a similar taste and you def get the bitterness and pine on the back end but not too bad. Well balanced!
