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.

Great looking beer and the smell is like a bunch of IPA's rolled into one. I'm getting tropical fruits, berries, flowery a bit of that onion and grassy smell. NIce bite up front evolving into a slightly boozy, big hop bomb. Every smell is in the flavor leaving that tongue scrubbing bitterness and some warmth from the 9.4. I love how Stone has no reservations and just serves up a huge double IPA with a take no prisoners attitude. Not for a person that just wants to have session beers. This ones huge!

Hop heads delight, as it says on the bottle it is devistingly dank. Almost a palette wrecker

12 oz bottle, 420 enjoy by. Not as good as previous enjoy by's. Lacking a little in taste and a bit boozier than I remember. Still, a very good beer.

Enjoy by 4.20.2015. I have had several different enjoy by IPAs and this is by far my least favorite. Paid $7.99 at California Fresh Market.

The initial smell is great, hoppy, floral, etc. I was so excited after smelling the bottle that I was severely disappointed by the taste. There are some good hop flavors but nothing to impressive compared to other Enjoy By. Then again, every enjoy by is different so I understand that it is hard to compare. This IPA was very boozy in my opinion and lacked the flavor of other IPAs with less alcohol and less price. Maybe my bottle was exposed to light/sun light or left in a heated area for a while. Overall, still a good beer just not worth $7.99....

I really enjoyed this IPA, it has a real smooth taste even though it has a 9.4% alc/vol it is the 4/20 version. Will definitely have this again.
