 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.

4.48/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Enjoy By 11.12.13 (bottled 10.04.13, drank on 10.27.13 - just over 3 weeks old) fridge temp poured into a snifter.

Pours out a nice golden color, almost light orange. West coast IPA color. Very good clarity. Holds a decent white head, pretty good sticky lacing.

Holy aroma! Initially it's big juicy tropical fruits, pineapple, mango. As it warms some vegetal hops comes out. Dank all over, a bit catty.

All about the hops. Vegetal, juicy tropical fruits, dank, grapefruit citrus, nearly a little bit of everything from the hops. No real malt detectable both in the taste and aroma. Not an overly aggressive bitterness, just about right.

Quite light in the mouthfeel, makes very a very drinkable and enjoyable DIPA, very west coast like.

Quite an outstanding DIPA, up there with the best IMO. Can't drink enough of this.

4.45/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Enjoy by 11/12/13.

Appearance: Pale honey with good clarity and an off-white cap of foam.

Aroma: A hop bouquet of tropical fruits, with an emphasis on mango, and just a hint of dank hop juice. It has that great almost musty aroma that is synonymous with west coast IPAs, in my opinion.

Taste: This one definitely has the 'it' factor. The flavor begins with some crisp piney bitterness up front that morphs into a tropical ride for your palate. The hop character hits the perfect mix of pine, west coast fruits, and that touch of dankness that all the great IPAs balance so well. Speaking of balance, the malt is basically nonexistent here--which works in its favor. The 9.4% ABV is likely what is keeping the hops in line, but it is very hard to detect any alcohol presence. The 88 IBUs really make the most of their power, diminishing slightly in the finish before blasting through to echo around in the aftertaste for a very long time. It's not difficult to enjoy this one.

Mouthfeel: Just below medium in body which is quite a feat for an imperial brew. The carbonation keeps things lively but is just a tad excessive (nothing a vigorous pour can't fix). Suburb drinkability which is dangerous given the ABV but makes taking down a bomber no problem.

Final Thoughts: I was lucky enough to try an earlier batch of Enjoy By on-tap in Colorado in a flight next to PtE a couple months ago and Enjoy By was the better of the two (albeit by a narrow margin). The lack of malt flavor makes this beer even more impressive because there are no detectable flaws in the flavor and it seems to be consistent from one batch to the next. The Enjoy By series proves that Stone gets it. They understand that the consumer wants a fresh product, which means a lot coming from such a large brewery that doesn't need to be doing this kind of thing to survive in the vastly expanding craft beer industry. I have the utmost respect for Stone because they have respect for the consumer. The fact that Enjoy By is such a fantastic IPA is just the icing on the cake in this situation. Would I drink it again? Yes, anytime I can get my hands on it.

4.6/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

22 oz. bottle purchased at Cleveland Park Wine and Liquors on Connecticut Ave. in NW D.C., unknown bottling date but enjoy by 11/12/13, poured into my The Bruery "Rue the Day" glass dated 15 June 2013, drank 10/25/13 over an hour.

A: 3/3 - golden-orange coloration, impressive clarity as per usual for a Stone IPA (can both see or read through), initial soapy white head dissipates into subtle glass lacing, moderate alcohol legs which re-agitates the carbonation on swirling

S: 11/12 - as expected from a Stone IPA, there's heavy citrus fruit - grapefruit, pineapple and apricot - hop character likely from "C" hops; as the beer warms, some dank piney-resiny aromas punch through; pils malt character in the background for balancing but the hops totally shine through in the aroma, which is most impressive because this bottle shipped across the U.S. and was kept at RT behind the shelf in the store!

T: 18/20 - on the anterior tongue, tropical/citrus fruit like bitterness predominates; it the middle of the mouth, the bitterness continues to linger with some pils balance and muted alcohol flavors; finishes drier than the already-dry Stone IPAs; aftertaste is a pleasant citrus flavor that invites sip after sip...after sip (if I had more!)

M: 4/5 - moderate body with resiny hop oils sitting on the tongue tongue, the alcohol is present but I definitely don't get 9.4% ABV; impressively high carbonation for a ~10% imperial IPA that does not detract from the flavor profile

O: 9/10 - another major win from Mitch Steele and hop bursting; as much as I enjoy RuinTen, I think that this one even surpasses it; it reminds me a lot of Founders Double Trouble, and it's up there with the best DIPAs in the world (HT, PtE, Abrasive et al.); I have had an older version in the greater D.C. area but I don't recall it being this great; I'm excited to brew a huge modified hop burst DIPA with Amarillo, Bravo, Centennial, Citra and Zythos after this beer has whet my appetite; and, for $9.99 in an expensive beer city like D.C., I cannot think of a better beer bargain in the DMV; please come back to us soon!

TOTAL = 45/50

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

Drinking 10.25.13 on 10.25.13.
I do as I'm told... this time.

Appearance: Bright clarity, almost transparent infusing the light with a golden hue. Holds a cover and collar of bright white foam that leaves spotty curtain lacing behind.

Smell: Hop oils, citric and pine, almost to a burning g intensity. Get a hint o bread yeast (does Stone have a house yeast?) and just a hint of sugary base. This may burn a bit.

Taste: Full juicy hops are bitter, citric, pine, pineapple, grapefruit extract; just the glory of a fresh hop cone. The base malt high as much as possible without being absent. White bread, cracker dry malt seems to be the white wall the dripping green hop vines have been splattered against. The end story is the upper limit of hop bitterness just before it starts to eat through the glass.

Mouthfeel: Heavy body, almost sparkling carbonation crops off to leave a heavy lasting coat of hop oil that dries and strongly encourages the next sip.

Overall: They heard you like hops.

This stuff is great. First time I've ever had the enjoy by IPA. Nice amber color. Very clear. Nice citrus smell and the taste...awesome nice bitter punch in the mouth with a full pineapple orange grapefruit flavor. Excellent beer. Get it quick. I was told once it's gone, it's gone.

Enjoy By 11.12.13 IPA
Bottled: 10/04/13
Reviewed: 10/20/13
22 oz. bottle poured into a snifter
Purchased for $8.99

BRANDING
The Stone gargoyle overlooks "Enjoy By 11.12.13 IPA" in big bold letters. No hunting, squinting, or deciphering is necessary to figure out the freshness date of this one. The green-colored label brings about thoughts of hops. There's a brief description of the beer and a bottled on date. Simple, but effective branding.

APPEARANCE
Yellowy orange with medium white soapy head. Good bubble life. Decent lacing.

AROMA
Mango, pineapple, apricot, grapefruit, peach, floral, slight pine. Huge tropical fruit bomb and incredibly fresh on the nose.

TASTE
Fruitiness is a little lighter in the taste than on the nose, but still present. Resiny oily hops with mango, pineapple, apricot, grapefruit, and peach. Decent sweet malty backbone. Alcohol makes a presence with a pleasant warming. Not overly bitter at all, but there is a nice bitter presence. Finish is a drying spicy herbal pine with slight lingering bitterness.

MOUTHFEEL
Medium-bodied, smooth mouthfeel with just enough carbonation.

NOTES
This beer is a delicious hop bomb. Incredibly flavorful and highly drinkable even at 9.4%. One of the most delicious hop profiles in any beer I've tasted and easily one of the best IPAs I've ever had. Seek this beer out every time it's released; it is a must-try if you can find it. "There is no better time than right now to enjoy this beer."

Ok, I have to start this review out with a slight disclaimer... This is Enjoy By 9.13.13... This was a lucky shelf pull late in the game for me, as this series is not readily available where I live. So, I am enjoying this beer a little over a month late... however, I am quite sure that the hop flavor has not broken down in any sort of drastic way. I believe in drinking hoppy beers fresh, but unlike a lot of the talk on the BA message boards, I strongly believe IPAs have a shelf life of several months (and even at that point they are not totally 'bad').

Moving on, as I look upon this beer in my glass, it looks simply glorious! It's a pale golden color, with decent clarity and small bubbles rapidly rising to the surface. the head is quite thick and foamy, moreso than your average DIPA, that's for sure. The aroma conjures images of an tangy citrus fruits, like lemon and grapefruit, an evergreen forest, and some kind of breadiness as well.

Wow, this is really something.... this is a very heavy beer with grassy, herbal, and tobacco-like hop bitterness. My guess would be that Simcoe is part of the hop bill. This is also the type of DIPA that has a strong malt backbone as well, which is manifesting itself as a slightly boozy, biscuity, tart sweetness. It is very much playing second fiddle to the dry-as-a-desert bitterness that peaks in the finish. There is a pleasant taste that lingers for a while in my palate, as the somewhat noticeable alcohol warms me up too. It feels just right - a moderate mouth feel.

Overall, I'm certainly glad I decided to grab this even though it was a little past its so-called prime. If you're reading this and you stumble upon one of these past the date, don't hesitate to try it, It's definitely worth the money. It goes without saying this has to be marvelous if you are lucky to score a bottle right away too.

Although being the same beer everytime (just new batches) just like evrything else at Stone, its consistent. I enjoyed the Hoppiness without the distraction of so much bitterness, which was a bit wierd for a stone beer. I was expecting a booze bomb but its actually very balanced. A very smooth 9.4% abv.

Bottle. Opened 2 days before "drink by" date. Clear dark yellow with a fluffy white head. Initially upon opening, there is a nice hop aroma, but it attenuates slight soon thereafter. Big malt profile that overpowers the hops. No doubt that this is a double. Some apricot in the nose, but mostly hops and malt. The flavor is good, but the bitterness is a little harsh. Palate is perfect for a double. Medium carbonation that rapidly dissipates. It's a big beer. Well done, but a little heavy-handed. I like what Stone is trying to do here. I just prefer an IPA with a bit more balance.

bottled 10/4/13, enjoy by 11/12/13. Purchased on vacation at Poseidon's Pantry Gourmet on Chincoteague Island, VA.

Crystal clear light gold to orange with a strong 2 1/2 finger off white head. Amazingly thick, clingy lacing. Carbonation is evident.

Very fresh hugely hoppy aroma. Very herbal. Grapefruit and peel, pine and freshly cut wild herbs like homeopathic medicinals. It smells healthy.

Bitter homeopathics and grapefruit peel repeated and elevated compared to the aroma. Slight taste of alcohol early on. A fleeting hint of almost cinnamon in the back of the mouth. As the beer warms, the bitter characteristics mellow out and the sweet malts blend with the hops to mimic a tropical fruit punch.

Medium thick, not quite creamy. Peppery with light syrup. Very warming.

Incredible aroma and taste. My favorite double IPA ever. Even better than Firestone Double Jack.

A - looks great, like an IPA should.

S - smells wonderful, just as a hop head like myself had dreamed of.

T - out of this world!

M - hardy and full of citrusy hops.

O - this is up there with the best of 'em my friends. Stone has knocked another one out of the park, not too many competitors able to touch this one! Simply amazing.

Post Initial Review Note: 09.13.13 was close to a perfect 5! 11.13.13 not as good, recommendation is to try many releases as possible and often! 2.14.14 closer to 9.13.13 release, great stuff Stone!

A - Pours a dark golden with a full two fingers of white puffy creamy head.

S - Tropical goodness comes through with pineapple, grapefruit, some lemon and orange with pine. Smells awesome!

T - Wow, very nice. The flavors are very close to the nose. Getting grapefruit, pineapple, lemon and orange. Hoppy pine needles mid palate. Just a bit of alcohol on the aftertaste.

M - Very smooth, medium mouthfeel, with medium carbonation.

O - Yeah, this is good stuff. Is it better than RuinTen, I doubt it, but good nonetheless.
Enjoy yet another quality IPA from Stone. Cheers!

Enjoy by 11.12.13

Appearance: Clear burnished gold with moderate white head that dissipates quickly, leaving light lace.

Smell: I smell hops and hop oil, but can't pinpoint the actual aroma very well. Citrus, pine and tropical notes seem to be blended together.

Taste: Fairly sweet malt core with loads of fresh hops on top. Orange, grapefruit, mango, peach, pine - lots going on but individual characteristics are hard to separate. Finish is spicy and piney, but only somewhat bitter.

Feel: Medium body, moderate carbonation, creamy and oily. Mostly dry finish.

Overall: I absolutely love the concept of this beer, and the execution mostly lives up to the concept. A little more distinct aroma and a little more dryness, and this could have been a home run. I will settle for a triple however. Great stuff.

I've had several of these "best by" beers and they have all been delicious. I have had slightly maltier incarnations, but this one, 11/12/13, is one of the brighter and sweeter specimens. it has the maltiness that an imperial should while still getting that sharp and bright hop character that Stone IPAs are famous for.

very pretty pour. lots of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass that keep rising as it sits. some fingers of foam decorating the glass, bright amber color. very uniform. grows more bitter as it warms.

it smells like heaven. very bright, very warm, very sweet. a little bit of grapefruit and bread, which is better than it sounds.

does not drink like a 9% beer. very easy to quaff. way too easy to quaff! I look forward to more beers in this series.

This is the 11/12/13 model. Light, lively and fresh. A very deceptive 9.4% on the palate, it hits the head not long after passing the gums. Mild peach and nectarine notes in the flavor, along with the same sort of tartness and bitterness those fruits can provide. A lingering top note of sweetness is there that persists beyond the IPA bitterness.
I've had a few of these Enjoy By beers and they've all been lovely. I hope Stone keeps up the trend.

Poured from bottle into a goblet. This was the newest version of the best by series (by 11.12.13). I thought this beer was outstanding. Very mellow for a double. It poured like most IPAs with the golden hue with average head. Smell was good, but not anything special. Overall, it was outstanding. I was mightily impressed by Stone with this one.
