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.

Bomber poured into chalice

Bubbly, frothy two finger white cap quickly settles into a nice layer of bubbles with decent lacings. Clear golden orange color with scant carbonation streams.

Aroma of pine, resin. Grass.

Bitterness on the sides of the tongue, tAste of the hops with pine the dominant flavor. Smooth carbonation on the tongue. Gentle but present bitterness on the aftertatse.

Clean fresh IPA. STONE does a great job in producing beer and this is another fine example.

A-Clear gold color with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a lace
S- crisp hop smell with lemon orange, and pine aroma
T-hard to tell you all the things that i taste, but I will try. Malt and hops at the beginning that goes to a hard pine hop aftertaste that slowly fades as you finish.
M-high carbonation
O-the smell is by far the best. I could not wait to taste it, the taste did not let me down very much. I will buy one every time now, the hype made me think it would be hard to live up to, but it did

Just cracked the 7/4/14. Poured a nice pale yellow with a fizzy head that left trails down the side of the glass. The smell was amazing with a lot of hop scents of pine and citrus. The taste was great, exploding with a lot of pine and grapefruit notes that mingled in the mouth and left a very crisp finish that was very refreshing. Loved it and would definitely recommend grabbing a bottle while there is still time.

A: Orange-yellow. White tall head when poured aggressively.

S: Dankness of hops! Also some honey and grassy notes.

T: Yes! Note that I have to be in an IPA mood to enjoy these things; luckily this is one of those moods. This is awesome... dank hops, grassy notes, rough pine, citrus, crispy saltines, apple skins, and a nice and balanced malt backbone.

M: Nice and creamy, with a crisp carb on the back end. As it warms I get a more syrupy mouth feel. The coating on the palate isn't too much, but just right.

O: Glad I picked it up! Stone Enjoy By is one of those IPAs I can thoroughly enjoy. A very pleasant and balanced beer with wonderful flavors.
