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.

A: poured a golden orange in color with yellow highlights and a nice finger of head that left plenty of bubbly lacing sticking to the glass.

S: love arom of a variety of hops with earthiness, some grassy notes, a little wood character, a little malty sweetness and a variety of citrus fruits as well.

T< I really enjoyed the hop profile on this one, kind of reminded me of pliny with citrus lemons and grapefruit that helped out on the bitterness factor but maintained a good balance between the sweetness from the malts. I also got grassy, earthy, hints of woody notes and a touch of mango fruit.

M: the brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a sweet, hoppy, grassy, earthy, citrusy and mild bitter finish.

O: very delicious beer and solid all the way around. I could definitely sip on this beer all day. Good Job!!!

Picked up a mini growler at Hop City. Enjoy by 4.01.13.
Poured into a chalice. Clear deep copper/orange, heavily carbonated with a small frothy white head.
Nose is exceptional. Piney hops, grapefruit and citrus rind, white pepper. Perfect IPA nose.
Taste is very good. Heavy pine hops, balanced with a solid malt character. Some warming on finish.
Excellent IPA. Gotta go get some more.

Bottled on 11/16/12. Enjoy By 12/21/12. End of the World beer, Love it. Poured into a tulip.

A- With an aggressive pour Enjoy By 12/21/12 pours a deep gold color, brilliantly clear with 2 fingers of rocky, foamy white head that seems to linger awhile and leaves some mild lacing on the glass.

S- A super aromatic beer. Huge aromas coming off of this one of ripe pineapple and other rich and overly ripe tropical fruits. There is a nice underlying sweetness underneath the tropical fruits that compliments them well. Smells wonderful.

T- Follows nose well. Super up front fresh hop bite that IPA lovers seek. Very tasty combination of the tropical fruits and bready, biscuity malts.

M- Nice and creamy. Nice mouth coating texture that ensures the whole palate gets a taste. Medium amount of carbonation that suits the style well. Super refreshing.

O- After trying this nobody should question whether or not Stone brews a solid IPA or DIPA. This is one solid beer. Crisp and refreshing, what more could one want out of a beer? Seek this one out.

22oz bottle poured into tasters - 12.21.12 version - thanks alex/cj

Pours a clear golden color with a thinner white head. Fades out fairly quickly into some bubbled film and spotty lacing on the glass.

Vibrant and pungent hoppy presence in the nose, driven by bitter grapefruit and resinous pine. Faint sweetness from caramel and fruit with a faint notion of a malt backbone. Light alcoholic punch.

Crushing bitter hoppiness right up front with an absolute avalanche of grapefruit and sticky pine. The hops dominate the profile from nearly top to bottom, only momentarily allowing for a brief notion of toasted grain/caramel malted backbone. Finishes bitter and dry with grapefruit followed by a boozy warmth.

Medium body, well carbonated, dry and sticky on the tongue. Stone makes some really tasty West coast style IPAs, but this one is easily the most expressive and flavorful without going completely off the rails. I'd drink this regularly if possible.

Wow! I haven't been blown away by an IPA or DIPA in quite awhile. That is until Enjoy By 11-9-12. This is far and away the best Stone product I've ever had. The nose if full of incredibly ripe citrus. Grapefruit, orange, and even some pineapple and mango.

Bitter as all hell with huge hop flavors similar to the nose. Dry, light malt profile makes a perfect platform for the hops. No alcohol presence for 9.4% abv. So incredibly fresh and powerful. Solid mouthfeel and caebonation. Just a wonderful beer tat I wish was available all the time. A heavy hitter, wow!

22oz. bomber bottle with a large silk screened forest green label. In the middle of the label is the head of the Stone gargoyle. The back of the bottle has the usual Stone novel. This version was from the 7th batch, 05.17.13. This beer was enjoyed on May 6th.

When poured into a Peg's Cantina Snifter, this Stone beer was a crystal clear golden apricot orange color. There's gold in this beer! On top of this golden brew was a small 1/4 of an inch cotton white head of foam. It had acceptable retention that left behind a tiny string of rings and a few spots of lace around this beer.

There's gold in the color and pine in the aroma. Right up front in the aroma was a wall of pine. It didn't smell like a Christmas tree garden. A little less than that. Waiting for the pine to pass was this aroma's fruit orchard. There were citrus fruits and even a few tropical fruits. My nose picked up on bitter grapefruit, orange, mango, lemon, and even a drop of pineapple. I'm not sure what kind of hops were in the aroma. Smelled like it was a mix of floral and citrus hops. Doesn't matter what they were. They smelled great! I couldn't pick up any malts in the aroma. I'm OK with that. It didn't need it.

If I had to describe this beer in one word, I would use the word "hoppy." Was it super duper hoppy? Just a shade under that. This beer didn't want to mess around. Right off the bat was the bitter citrus hops. These hops stick around for a while before it lets through the pine forest and fruit orchard. The fruits in the aroma had more of a variety. The taste only had bitter grapefruit, a pinch of orange peel, a drop of lemon zest, and a splash of pineapple. At the finish line was a subtle and I mean subtle taste of toasted malt.

This was a medium bodied Imperial/Double IPA that had a good level of carbonation and a full flavored hoppy aftertaste. This aftertaste had its fair share of bitter citrus hops, pine resin, bitter grapefruit, lemon zest, and some floral notes. This aftertaste was so bitter than it will cling to the roof of your mouth and on the surface of your tongue for a long time. It will take an entire lake to get rid of this aftertaste.

A very good and fresh Imperial/Double IPA from Stone. I had high hopes for this beer and it actually exceeded them. Would I drink it again? That's a stupid question! Of course I would! I hope I don't have to tell you this. Don't sit on this beer. Drink it fresh like the label says. You won't be sorry.

This is for the "12.21.12" edition. Bomber dated 11/16/12 poured into Duvel tulip: consumed & reviewed on 11/25.

This edition pours a strawberry-blonde color: inch of head that is snow white. Retention is moderate on this one: lacing is present, and plenty of clous left on the sides of the glass. This offers a lot on the nose: very dank, weedy aroma is what I get, with a bit of sweet malt in the mix (faint bread pudding). Taste offers more of the same: weedy, somewhat bitter on the back end. This is more balanced than I expected: a bit of a sweet finish to balance bitterness. I do get a bit of onion aftertaste, but the note does not detract from the rest of the flavors. The high abv (9.4%) is well hidden.

If you'd have blind folded me, I'd have thought this was the new batch of Lagunitas Sucks. Honestly, almost identical in my palate's memory. A bit pricey, but high quality.

(Batch 4-1-13) Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a snifter glass
Chill-hazed apricot/gold in color, with a big cloud deck of bone-white foam.
Aroma-Big juicy, dank hops
Taste-Fruity peach and apricot, piney, resinous hops abound. Grapefruit, fresh-squeezed hops. High ABV not evident. Full-on hops, big character and bigger flavor. A powerfull, full-flavored Double IPA.

Fourth batch. On-tap at Fat Head's Pittsburgh.

Great clarity. Amber/orange in this light. Soppy little foam cap. Quaint look.

Tropical fruits, citrus, and pine. Papaya, grapefruit, orange, and grated lemon. Biscuit malts are in attendance, as well.

Dank citrus and tropical fruit hops pour out grapefruit, lemon, and papaya. Resinous oils remind of sappy pine. Malts have a mellow pale sweetness. Bitterness is surprisingly mild. Just an excellent DIPA.

Drinks smooth, with a light bitter burn in the throat. Carbonation creams the beer a bit. Plus feel.

Kickass stuff. Feed me another.

22oz bottle dated in large letters "Enjoy by 11/09/12".

Pale, gold, clear elixir poured into DFH chalice. Thin, white head forms a solid , thin ring. Thick dollops of lacing coat the glass.

Floral hops mingle with tropical fruits and sticky pine. Reminds me of last years Surly WET. Nice.

Nicely bitter, resinous hops, mango, spice, some earth tones. A bit of alcohol comes through at the end.

Nicely carbonated, medium body, pleasant aftertaste.

There's a lot going on with multiple different hops coming through. Certainly a simcoe tinge. Overall a nicely done IPA.

A 22 oz bottle of a special(one time?) brew.

Pours a very clear bright yellow with nice white head and lacing.

Nose is really nice with pine and tropical fruit.

Taste is great. Leans more to the tropical side than most I have ever had. Good and resiny. Some grapefruit to finish it out. I am not up on my tropical fruits. I would guess guava or papaya.

Mouth feel is on the creamy side. Nice and slick finish.

Overall, this is unique special beer. A nice price as well. $6.29 for a 22 is not bad these days.

Fourth Batch 02.15.13 Poured into a Stone Imperial glass. Bright yellowy orange color. Crystal clear with many medium sized carbonation bubbles that lead to small one finger head. Head is a tad bit off white and creamy in appearance. Lace is sticking just a bit and does an okay job down to the bottom.

Smell is wonderful!! Lots of citrus, orange, pink grapefruit. Some pineapple and even some mango. Pine sap as well. Some kind of sweet malt smells but no hint of earth or grass. This is about as close of a nose to Abrasive I have smelled. Quite nice.

Taste is very bright and fruity. Juicy I would like to say. Many of the tastes are as the nose pointed me. Sweet orange, and pineapple. The grapefruit is more on the bitter side of a yellow grapefruit. There is a big tongue lashing pine resin to it and sweet as well. I am not getting any of sources of the sweetness like huge malts. There is just a hint of the alcohol at the end.

Mouth is wonderful. Creamy feel with medium carbonation. Body is smooth and rich. Finish is quite long with just a smidge of alcohol burn. Fantastic mouth!!

Overall I must say this is fantastic IIPA. Stone has made a statement with this brew and that is to get an IPA out to distro and into my belly as quick as possible. They don't win if this is successful I do. And the beer is fantastic with huge hop profiles that scream fresh West Coast IIPA. Cheers to Greg and the crew!

Enjoy By 12/21/12

A: Poured a half finger off white head that settled to sparse islands of moderately sized bubbles. Color is a hazy orangey peach. Copious amounts lacing decorate the glass.

S: Explosive. Tangerine, apricot, lemon zest, molasses, fresh Christmas pine.

T: Prepare to be gunned down from an arsenal of hop varieties. The flavor is fruity, spicy, grassy, and oozes with fresh hops. Black pepper, mango, cloves, fresh cut grass, pineapple and sweet toasty sweet malt leave you wanting more.

M: Coats your insides with hop resin like ornaments on the tree. Carbonation is very delicate and the ABV is nowhere to be found. Finishes wet and slick.

O: I am willing to become a fallen soldier, a casualty to the freshness this beer offers. This is really what matters when it comes to a great tasting IPA.

Enjoy by 12-21-12. Bottled 11-16-12. Consumed 11-21-12

A - Pours a light golden blond with one finger snow white colored foam head. Lacing clings to sides of glass.

S - Mango, orange, tangerine, pine, pineapple and just tons of tropical citrus notes.

T - Waves of tropical citrus and stinging pine needles immediately appear on initial sip. Touch of alcohol heat and then a dryness finishes things off.

M - Medium bodied with a lingering dryness.

O - Hats off to Stone on this one. This a like a tropical party in your mouth with all the flavors of a world class IIPA. More of a dry finish than other IPA's but it just keeps you going back for the next sip. Worth seeking out.

The Beers of California


Bottled Date: 9/20/13

A: Yellow to orange golden with a towering pillow of off white foam that slowly fades to lace on the glass.

S: Mango and pineapple on first pour. Strong citrus, pine and flowers come through as the brew settles. There are also hints of bubble gum and mint founded on a base of bread and honey.

T: This brew brings together the sweetness of mango, pineapple juice, and grapefruit along with honey and cane sugar and juxtaposes that sweetness with earth, pine, flowers, and freshly baked bread. There are also moments of mint and green tea which brings complexity to the palate. Some pepper spice joind the warm finish.

M: The linger is forever and the feel is medium with good supporting carbonation.

O: So fresh and so flavorful. I attribute this mostly to the freshness which really brings the hop flavors out. A must grab and enjoy it now .

4.125/5. Really torn between the obvious dankness and the obvious skunkiness of 4-20. There is just enough "Heineken green bottle" going on to keep this out of the upper echelon. Great gobs of bitter and onion on nose but some sulfuric fartage on the end, which IMHO they did on purpose...but I digress...
There is great hop bombadiering on the taste. By far , flavor is the best characteristics of this beer. A lot of pellety flavor though. My take is enjoy by 420 would have been even better fresh. ENJOY since sister beer would be what I'd want to try.

Enjoy by 4.01.13. Served in tulip glass

A- pours a bright sunshine-like golden color, slightly hazy with two-finger white foamy head with good retention, reduces to a thin layer that seems to last forever, leaves a ring if lace

S- citrus-grapefruit-like hops, freshly cut grass with a bit of pine, some pineapple & pear, and a lemon flavored cookie sweetness, quite complex

T- right away I taste the grassiness that I picked up from the nose, definitely the freshest grassy flavor that I've had. Some tropical guava & pineapple, a bit peppery in the finish with some nutty malt and a hop resin linger.

M- medium bodied with medium carbonation, lively-yet-creamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish, just a bit of alcohol warmth but you'd never guess it was almost 10% ABV.

O- definitely one of the fresher hop flavors I've had, quite fitting for this beer. All hops take center stage, just a bit of nutty malt noticeable. Pleasing finish with a refreshing, lingering grassy bitterness. Very solid DIPA.

Very good ipa. Pours a yellow-gold, with a nice white head. Aroma is big, big hops. Pine and citrus rind fill the nostrils. There is a deep, somewhat dark note to these hops. Taste is a little sweet and simple at first, I'm getting maybe just base and a caramel malt, but then the hops open up delivering puckering lemon rind and a hint of grapefruit. Deep pine notes overwhelm. The finish is nice bittersweet at first and then just bitter. Mouthfeel is okay, maybe a little thin. Overall great hop aroma and good hop taste, but not one of my elite dipas.
Edit: Had this on tap in Asheville and it was fantastic. Might have been a different bottling, might have been me.

Fourth time trying this beer, three times in bottle, once on tap. Had 9/21/12, 21/21/12, and 04/01/13 twice.

Appearance: Beautiful golden color, crystal clear, the head disperses to the sides but remains in tact. Lacing shows a little bit of creaminess.

Smell: Lots of grapefruit and some honey in it. Aroma at just the right intensity. A little skunky, not bad or anything though.

Taste: So bitter, malt is in the background and has notes of honey. Very bitter taste and grapefruit characteristics. Medium finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, perfect amount of bubbles, leaves a crisp refreshing feeling.

Overall: Sometimes the bitter is a little overpowering, that's one comment I will make about the overall balance. However, this beer is filled with complexity as well as a crisp, clean finish.

On-tap, into growler, into snifter.

A- Clear amber with yellow hue. Finger of white head. Medium amount of lacing. Carbonation noticeable.

S- Best part of this ale, although it tastes great too. Lots of citrus and tropical fruits coming off. Tangerine, guava, orange, and lemon are very apparent. Lots of flora. Just of touch of grass and pine. Not much of a malt presence, but just enough.

T- Very juicy, hop-forward DIPA. Not quite as many citrus flavors as the smell, but definitely still fruity and flowery. Bit of pine as the smell indicated and a little bread. Alcohol noticeable, but not by much.

M- Crisp and light bodied for the most part. Carbonation present. Just the right bight.

O- Another favorite DIPA of mine that can party with the top guys. Very drinkable and refreshing. The flavor of this really reminds me of Pliny, but with a stronger bite and bitterness. Wish this was a little more available, as this is the first time I've noticed in the area and there were purchasing restrictions. Highly recommended and kudos to Stone.

A-Poured into a snifter. It pours gold/honey with a somewhat thin white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Not much lacing left and no cascading.

S-Hops, hops, and more hops. Citrus and some pine, but you can tell this is going to be one hoppy beer.

T-Citrus, with a slight hint of tropical fruit, with a more piney bitter lingering hop finish. This is one of the hoppiest beers I think I've ever had. The hops are fresh, pungent, raw, and in your face. I was expecting a more tropical experience, but Stone focused on making this bitter. It is very good and a classic version of the style.

M-Pretty syrupy with a touch of carbonation.

D-I drank an entire bomber by myself without any problems, but this is really takes a toll on the palate.

Overall, this is a great IIPA. It is one of the most hoppy and bitter beers I've tried. I was expecting it to be more tropical, similar to Hopslam and Sucks but it was not very much like them at all. This is a hop lovers dream as it is in your face. This is a great beer, don't get me wrong, but given the price at about $8.60 a bomber, I think I will stick to Lagunitas Sucks at around $10 a sixer.

Light amber color with a thick head with good retention.
Delicious aroma with predominant notes of passion fruit, mild pine and white wine.
Flavor with notes of pine, grapefruit, resin, tea leaves, pineapple, earth, spices, honey and grapes.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 9.4% abv is incredibly hidden.
Excellent IPA, yes, fresh does matter. Very well balanced with the characteristic search for perfection by Stones brews.

I picked this up and opened it the day it arrived in Ashland, Ky. I must say I am stoked about this brew. Just not getting around to reviewing it.

22 oz brown bottle with a green, white and black label. Pretty standard and gets the point across with Enjoy By IPA 09.13.13. Overall a nice and classy looking bottling but the stuff inside is what matters. Poured this into a stemmed Belgium style tulip glass.

A - golden colored body with a creamy white head. Nice smooth fluffiness to it and lasts throughout leaving a lot of slow moving stick. Superb looking beer. Beautiful and lush. Looks and pours like a dream.

S - fresh fresh hop aroma. Somewhat dank hop aroma. Fresh ripe peaches with a basket of tropical fruits. Small and soft grainy malt in the back ground.

T - soft malt hits first but is an afterthought to the hops that follow. Loads upon loads of gushing hop flavors of ripe peaches, orange, grapefruit rind and tropical fruits. A real dank pine flavor as well as a fresh grassy note creeps up as it screams its freshness and its one of a kind style. A brilliant tasting DIPA. I've never tasted anything like it.

M - nicely bodied and it carries good texture while covering the entire mouthfeel with loads upon loads of fresh and gushing hop fruitiness. Alcohol is present but mainly bc you know it's there and not bc it comes anywhere close to dominating the palate. I i i i i wouldnt call it a balanced As it is a pretty one sided hop affair, but that abundance of hops are indeed balanced Within theirselves making for a Smooth feel and very enjoyable offering.

O - it is everything it says it is. An extremely fresh double ipa with the quality to back up all the hype. It's something ill always look for from now on. Easily one of the best DIPA's on the planet and one of my new favorites. It has it all the right pieces perfectly in place for a truly special release. I sure hope we get the next batch! A must try

had this quite a few times, but it is time to do a review.

a: clear honey-gold. some alcohol legs, almost no lacing.

s: very sculpin-like. Honey and citrus sweetness, floral notes, and that strange, bitter, astringent, oniony smell. Very nice.

t: Before you even get to fully taste the beer, bitterness comes in and hits you, with astringent, floral hops rolling across your tongue. finishes a little hot.

mf: medium, almost on the sticky side like RuinTen. Alcohol does come through a little bit.

overall: definitely worth trying, or grabbing a few bottles. Isn't as good as some of those other big guys, but it is what it is.
