Listing for all Stone Enjoy By xx.xx.xx IPA beers.

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 label, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and consumers. 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.

12.13.13 poured from a bomber into a imperial pint glass

A: Nice deep gold with nice lacing and head retention. Clear and really clean looking. Sticky head that clings to the glass.

S: Wow this is pungent! Hop bomb on the nose! Getting lots of piney and earthy fresh hops. Pine, lemon, lime, earthy hops, floral note, and no real malt to speak of. Smell sticks to the nostrils. Like sticking your nose in a handful of hops.

T: Taste a lot like it smells. Tons of hops come rushing in but not overpowering like a ruination. It's all fresh and quenching. getting pine, lemon/lime, back to pine, orange rind, slight white pepper, white peach, nectarine, and malts do make a brief appearance at the end to balance it out. Really tasty!

M: Super clean for what i would call a DIPA. It is smooth a clean on the tongue but the hops still make their presence felt with a nice resiny mouthfeel on the finish. To sum it up wet and clean. Almost no booze for a 9%.

O: Really well done. Nice and balanced considering the nose and i love how it has that quenching wet sort of feel too it. Makes this one super drinkable and sets it apart not only form stones other IPAs but most others i have had. I would put it up there with Pliny for sure. Stone does it again!

Served in a 14oz glass at Heartbreakers in Chaska

Overall I've loved the Enjoy by series. But I feel that they are getting a little too mainstream with the taste. Some of the previous ones have been some of my favorite beers. The last two I've had have left me wanting more from this great beer company.

Serving type: on-tap
