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.

b33r (636) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2013
Bright clear gold color with minimal white ring of a head and little to no lacing. Aroma and flavor have sweet smooth hops with a slight clean bitterness. Nice citrus flavors. Balanced well and super drinkable

BLADT (211) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 19, 2014
4.20.14 batch. From bottle. Clean orange in meg. Massive grapefruit and hemp nose. Some pine cone. Dank to eleven, as advertised. Taste is tangerine and hop pellet, with low roast malts and a consistent pine bitterness behind. Vague watermelon sweetness on finish. I did a double take on the ABV; I would have believe something 30-40% lower. Enjoyed.

About as good as it gets. I’ve had 3 different "Enjoy By" beers and it never fails to disappoint. The aroma is a powerful pine/citrus note and perfectly matches the taste. It’s really a Double IPA by any standard and it deserves the title -- i’ve had beers which touted to be "Triple IPA" that don’t have the hops anger of this one.

From a bottle, 4.20.14 batch Pours a clear, golden color with a white foam head. Wonderfully dank with a lot of citrus notes. Definitely has some fruity sweetness, hops are present but not overpowering. This beer managed to please a huge hop-head like myself and my hops-hating wife. One of the best beers I’ve tasted.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2014
Bottled 1/10/14. Poured 2/3/14. I believe I paid $6.99 for the bomber. Enjoy by 2.14.14 Appearance: Perfectly clear golden color. Two finger, slightly off-white head. Great lacing. Nice looking beer. Smell: Very fresh on the nose, as I’d expect. The two dominant aromas I pull are pine and grapefruit. A sort of malty sweetness as well. Not exactly blowing my mind with a huge depth of interesting smells, but what’s there is very nice. Taste/feel: Quite nice. Like the smell in a lot of ways. A good bit of sweetness through most of the sip with a slight burn and bitterness on the finish. The flavor on the front is resinous, piney hops, with grapefruit and other citrus flavors meddling in the middle of the mouth, with that bit of a burn/bitterness at the end. Aftertaste is a sort of lemon zest bitterness with a caramel sweetness. I like it, but not it’s not blowing my socks off. Medium body. Medium carbonation, maybe a little high. Very drinkable. As the brew warms slightly, a sort of Summit hop flavor comes through (for those who don’t know, a bit of an oniony flavor). It actually becomes pretty significant and it makes the brew a bit more interesting and causes it to stand out a little bit more than it otherwise would have. As it warms up even more, tropical fruit peeks through, as does the alcohol. Tastes almost like a completely different beer from when it was straight out of the fridge. Enjoy By’s a brew I’ve been wanting to get my hands on since I first heard about it. I missed out on the last batch that came to Michigan, but not this one. Grapefruit and pine dominate when it’s first out of the fridge, but then Summit hops (or ones similar) add a third dimension. This is a tasty one to crack open and spend an afternoon or evening with that also comes at a reasonable price. It’s a beer I’d recommend you seek out, but in a way, I’m ALMOST disappointed? I decided to give it a 4.5 overall just because I love how the flavors change so much throughout the 22oz of beer. TL;DR: Enjoy By should be tried by ANYBODY who likes or loves IPAs, simple as that.

FiremanChris (13) - - APR 16, 2014
Enjoy by 5/16/14 bottled on 4/10. Drank 4 days after bottling on 4/14 pours a clear honey color with a 1 finger head. Sticky lacing, good carbonation. Aroma is big hops, dankness, astringent, pine/resin. Tropical fruits: tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit. Sweet bready malt. Taste is a smack in the face of dank hoppiness followed by huge grapefruit/pineapple undertones with a balancing malt backbone. Pine sap, other tropical fruits.Dry finish leaving you wanting another sip. Outstanding. Overall one of my favorite DIPAs that never disappoints.

ACD (573) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 15, 2014
Bomber (4/20). Hazy gold, immaculate white head. Huge dank mango and hemp nose, grapefruit, orange peel. Great fruity taste: full of passionfruit and mango, peach and slightly darker notes of orange. More dank hemp, sticky pine, and sweeter biscuity malt. Fruity,sweet juicy notes lasting. Really crisp finish - great bitterness. So easy drinking, belies its ABV. Shit me, this is great.

04/20/2014 bottle, that’s right 420 bitches. Pours a clear amber, massive fluffy white head that dies down to about half a finger and leaves tons of lace. Nose is beautifully hopped, and some sweet caramel. Tastes perfectly balanced bitterness.
