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- weve taken it further, a lot further, in this IPA. You see, we specifically brewed it NOT to last. Weve not only gone to extensive lengths to ensure that youre getting this beer in your hands within an extraordinarily short window, we made sure that the Enjoy By date isnt randomly etched in tiny text somewhere on the bottle, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and beer fans. Instead, weve sent a clear message with the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.

lightbias (452) - USA - APR 20, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 Enjoy By 4.20.14, bottled. A citrusy floral punch with a sweet full body, this hoppy brew packs a wallop to the senses. A gorgeous golden color with a nice soft white head. Amazing flavor, complicated and simple at the same time, citrus, resin; grapefruit and sweeter? Something sweet...someone mentioned passionfruit. Perhaps. Amazing flavor, amazing experience, from the top of the bomber to the finish. Enjoy By 10.31.14. Bomber pour into a tulip. Apricot brew covered in white foamy goodness. This round is another huge clock to the jawline, but this time the grapefruit is a monster, and those more subtle aromas are overpowered by a bitter, grassy resin. The grapefruit winds around the base of my tongue with a medium body, drying my mouth and titillating my olfactories. The experience is not unpleasant, just obviously a different experience than the last one I had with Enjoy By. The palate is sticky, dry and quite nice. Cant wait to experience yet another bottling in the near future! 12.26.14! Very close to the same sensations and flavors as the 10.31, but slightly less bitter apricot going through with this bottling. Really like this one!

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2014
Enjoy By 4.20.14 from Bevmo! L.A. Appearance: finger of tight white head with great lacing, straw yellow, clear. Aroma: resin, pine, lemon, dank hops!, light caramel. Palate: light body, great lasting bitterness, dry finish, average carbonation, sticky texture. Taste: great rushing sweetness flowing into crazy bitterness that has a somewhat caramely sweetness in it. Overall, wonderful wonderful beer, great balance, aromas exhibit ALL the hops, and just enjoyable.

PotjeBier (2886) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2015 Taster from tap @ 38 Degree Alehouse, on 17 April 2014. Enjoy by 05.16.14 batch, so very fresh. Clear golden blonde color. Dense, rocky white head. Aromas of resin and citrus. Retronasal its citrus upfront, then resin, some malty sweetness and light skunky (as in hashish). Flavor is moderate bitter, with some fruity sourness and light sweetness. Rather strong alcohol feel. Medium bodied. Finishes somewhat herbal and only lightly bitter. Nice.

RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 20, 2014
04-20-14. Hazy amber orange pour. Huge citrus and bready malt backing in the aroma. Alcohol is really well integrated. Lots of flavour - pine, citrus, caramel malt. Bitter finish.

BLADT (700) - 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.

horto008 (184) - Alabama, USA - APR 19, 2014
About as good as it gets. Ive 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. Its really a Double IPA by any standard and it deserves the title -- ive had beers which touted to be "Triple IPA" that dont 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 Ive 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 Id 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 whats 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 its 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 dont 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 Bys a brew Ive 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 its 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. Its a beer Id recommend you seek out, but in a way, Im 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.
