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

 http://www.stonebrewing.com/enjoyby/ 

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.

11.09.12 batch

Poured in to a tulip. Slightly hazy, golden colored body. 1 finger head. Good lacing.

Aroma was crazy amounts of hops. Super danky, tropical and citrusy. Some biscuity, malty backbone, but this is hops dominant. Extremely floral.

Flavor was hop dominant. Very delicious, resinous and danky. Loads of floral, tropical and citrus hop flavors up front. Good amount of maltyness in the middle with a slightly biscuity flavor. Finished with a lingering, resinous bitterness. Grapefruity, lemony and orangey in the finish. Slight signs of ABV with a bit of alcohol warmth.

Mouthfeel had a medium body, medium carb and a dry finish. Hops shined very brightly in the finish.

Overall this was amazing. Probably one of the best, more floral and pungent DIPA's I've had. Would be nice to see this one year-round.
