Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Stone enjoy by 7-4-14 A non beer geek friend had this and donated to my fridge. I'm not going to say no because of a giant drink by date on the front!!
A- Hazy burnt orange color that you can’t see through. One finger thick cream colored head that was gone quickly.
S- A nice fruity peach and mango smell with a hint of berries. Also a mix of wheat, grass and bread.
T- The taste is huge! Lots of pine up front with a big bitter kick as well. Tasting some lemon and orange peel. I can also taste a good amount of alcohol at the end.
M- Crispy and smooth, the alcohol seems to cleanse the palate well and prepare you for the next sip.
O- Really good, probably better if I drank it three months ago like the bottle said too, but still good. I like how the flavor profile is so big and each part stands out on its own but somehow remains balanced.

This beer is outstanding.

This was Enjoy By 10/31/14, drank on 10/13/14. It was a beautiful blend of citrusy hops balanced perfectly with just a touch of malt, but not too much so that the beauty and taste of the hops is perfectly represented in all phases of taste - initial and on the finish.

It is all at once so incredibly hoppy yet ridiculously drinkable, don't know how they do it. Thanks Stone.
