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.

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 its one of the best craft breweries on the planet. Enjoy by is a great DIPA that is available year round -- a major bonus! Although its 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!

I drank this on 9/14 on tap. Today is my birthday. It is a devastatingly nice looking and tasty IPA. I?ve tried them all and this is the best. The most beautiful lacing Ive ever seen.

tambrico (50) - New York, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Currently drinking this 9/13/13 version on its last day of "freshness" . Aroma is very piney and hoppy. Pours a light amber with a very thin white head. Very citrusy taste, pine notes in there as well. Bitter throughout, but the finish is even more bitter. This is a quality DIPA offering, but Im actually a little bit disappointed that I dont like this as much as ruination. Perhaps this doesnt have the sweetness or the smoothness to match ruination. Perhaps Ill give another one of these a try when theyre fresh.

solidfunk (8313) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 13, 2013
This really is a superior IPA. UP there with the Hill Farmsteads I recently had for sure. This beer brings serious game, and Im just under the due date on my bottle. I can imagine what its like even fresher. Citrus, booze and sweet malt. Even some florals. Pours dark amber with good head and lacing. I prefer this to the ruination. Cheers to quick shipping power. Bottle from Premier Gourmet.

Nuffield (4121) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Not being a brewer myself, I dont quite understand this. I understand why cheap lagers would need a sell-by date, but I dont get why a high abv/gravity beer like this is better off sold this way. Ive had plenty of DIPAs that are great when aged and theres plenty going on here to keep it lively. Even so, this was a compelling beer. The aroma was especially resplendent with grapefruit, big orange citrus, and floral veins. The flavor wasnt all that, but was still extremely drinkable and balanced, with little hint of the alcohol. Solid body, too. Excellent. Batch 9-13-13. (on tap, Happy Gnome, St. Paul)

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2013
09.13.13: Pours a hazy golden with a medium, fluffy white head and some lacing. Aroma is grassy hops and citrus fruit. Flavor is grapefruit and other citrus notes, grassy hops, pepper, and a burning hop finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Wonderful brew.
