Stone Enjoy By 12-13-13
This is hands down by far the best beer I have had from Stone. An absolutely delicious double IPA! A beautiful golden brew that just glows in the light. Fantastic clarity and a nice white head. Showing a good amount of carbonation some pretty steady bubble streams. The aroma of this beer screams hops. Very resiny hoppy aroma kinda skunky but it's absolutely bloody brilliant. The taste goes right along with the nose. This is just a delicious hop bomb with tons and tons of hop presence but it's not excessively bitter. My kind of beer. This is delicious hop nectar.
Edit: This was so good I went out and bought another.. Second one wasn't cold when i bought it but at $6 a bottle it seemed like a steal. Tasted like soapy shit. Moral of the story this thing spoils quick way before the enjoy by date if its not cold. Plus, when this brew goes bad it goes really really fucking bad! Had the second one on 11-18-13 and it had already spoiled (12-13-13 IPA).

I had a batch with the sell by date of 7/4/14, and consumed on June 22. Growler from keg at local beer-specific retailer. Good dense gold color, a little hazy, but normal for a DIPA. Good healthy one finger head which left slowly. Aroma is almost pure hops, with a backing of malty sweetness. A bit grassy in its hoppiness, along with pine, grapefruit, and tropical fruit. Taste is wonderful, full in your face hoppy bitter resinousness, backed by enough sweet malt to make it really drinkable. Again, a bit of green freshness in the hops, I'd compare it most to nopalitos or green agave, which accents the pine and grapefruit excellently. Finishes dry, hoppy, and leaving you wanting more. Great beer. My first in this series, but definitely not my last.
