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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bomber of 7/4/15

Poured into a pint glass

Smell is citrus and floral hops with pine and Carmel malts.

Taste follows exactly. Very bitter and hop forward. The 7/4/15 is a great rendition of enjoy by! Smooth and crisp with no boozyness!

The enjoy by by Stone is solid. However.... my biggest complaint with this highly- distributed beer is that it taste totally different on tap than in a bomber. When the experience is that different between a bottle and bar... I'll take my $$$ somewhere else. If you see it on tap... go for it...! On the shelf... knock it off the list... but I could put that $8-$10 to so much better use...!

Enjoy By 07/04/15. This is a complex IPA. Large gulps taste of caramel and oranges with a floral hint. Smaller, contemplative, sips reveal a resinous bitterness.

To be clear this is for 7.04.15.

I thought it was great, really piney and hoppy, didn't taste the high abv much. Really good.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

APPEARANCE - 2FH that dissipates, foamy, lacing, amber, hazy.

AROMA/SCENT - Hops, fruit, citrus.

TASTE - Hops, bitter, pine.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - A little carbonation, dry, lingering, astringent, effervescent, crisp.

VALUE - $8.00 for 1-oz draft. OK.

OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - Another winner from Stone.

Citrusy and floral hops. Sweet beer and surprisingly light for a 9.4% beer. This can be enjoyed all year. Dear God this beer is so damn good. Wish I could get a case of it.

Very, very good beer. Not a huge IPA guy & I'm totally into this. Extremely smooth & slightly fruity. My favorite IPA so far.

A bit too sweet and syrupy for my taste. Booze is very very well hidden per usual with the enjoy by series.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Clear burnt orange, pretty. Still- no carbonation. White head, moderate lacing.

S: Juicy, ripe fruit, background of bitterness, some pine.

T: Wonderful smorgasbord of fruits. Orange, lemon, passionfruit, a lot of other stuff. Sweet malt, just an undertone, almost like honey or caramel. Mint/pine on the finish. Nice and juicy.

M: Light-medium body. Light prickle of carbonation.

O: My kind of IPA- lots of fruit, bitter but not cloying, highly drinkable but with high ABV. This is not just palatable, but enjoyable- is Stone relenting on the hardass destructive IPA styling? Or am I a hardass now??

Gorgeous, crystal clear, Amber body with a soapy white head. Sticky, clingly lace.
Earthy and dank but with good malt.
The taste is poolish, water cracker malts followed by a fully piney, dankness. Nice citrus peppery finish. Slight alcohol aftertaste.
Medium full body. Nice carbonation.
Very nice double ipa.

Enjoy by 07.04.15

Look: Crystal clear pale gold. Finger or two of head has nice retention.

Smell: Dank hops, earthy malts, and lemon citrus

Taste: Exceedingly bitter plays nicely with the alcohol, nearly masking it entirely. Grapefruit from the start turns to lemon by the finish. Certainly very dank. Very much like wet straw.

Feel: Excellent body. Slightly dry finish. Carbonation dances about the mouth long after the finish. Very refreshing.

Overall: Really great. Always a must get when it hits my shop. Not a whole lot to criticize this beer for. Its right up there with some of my favorite beers.

22oz bomber, Enjoy By 7/04/15, brewed 5/28/15 and consumed on 6/13/2015. Straw colored and the off white head lasts the entire time leaving behind layers of lacing. Aroma smells of light citrus, pine, and grass. Taste follows the nose with the pine and grass more noticeable. Smooth, almost a fluff feel, on the palate and quite drinkable for 9.4%. First time trying one of these enjoy by offerings and it was quite delightful.
