Listing for all Stone Enjoy By xx.xx.xx IPA beers.

 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.

A - Golden orange color with a nice white head.

S - Strong citrus hops with notes of grapefruit

T - First sip continues with the citrus and grapefruit flavors however it feels much richer in terms of spectrum than other IPAs for me. Finishes smooth and clean on the tongue.

M - The oiliness from the hops sit on the tongue and make the beer much milder in terms of alcohol content than the % the brew really is.

O - This is one of my favorite IPAs and probably my favorite beer from Stone.

Bomber 2.14.14.

A: amber with a very predominate white head, carbonation is high almost reminiscent of a soda.

S: Very citrusy with mild hints of earthiness as it warms up.

T: Phenomenally tame for a double IPA, meaning most double IPAs make me want to punch a hole in a wall from the inherent bitterness. But this is very subtle it's much lighter than most of there dIPA's I've had. The hops have a grapefruit and mild hint of orange very appealing taste.

M: Lightly carbonated and is very different from the rest of Stone's range of IPA where usually there is a large lingering aftertaste of the overwhelming hops.

O: Definitely in my top 10 of DIPA's there are few that can have this light and easily drinkable qualities and still be called a DIPA. Will definitely be looking for the next Enjoy By.

A- Clear with Amber highlights. Head dissipates quickly.

S-Like a clementine. Sweet fruit with a hint of citrus at the end.

T-Sticky like citrus honey with a clean bitterness at the end.

M-Lighter carbonation, but that might be because it is out of a growler.

Overall this is an excellent IPA. Alcohol sweetness with a clearly defined hop flavor.

Note: just gotten over a cold when I tried this

#10: 09-13-13
A: golden-amber with little head, not much lacing
S: orange with sweet caramel notes
T/M: much like the smell, very malt forward, melding into orange blossoms, then into a grassy (tinged with citrus). Mildly dry pull that lingers.
O: very good beer. Could maybe be a little less sweet, but love the citrus backbone of this beer, as well as the malt front and somewhat dry finish.

#12: 11-12-13
A: clear golden amber, but more lacing in this pour
S: same, but I notice an earthiness this time
T/M: more bitterness I notice up front in this one, less sweet than I reviewed before.
O: I didn't change any of my ratings, but I think I expected better given the rating versus what I thought about this tasting. Given that, I await my next one to see if I should adjust my rating.

#14: 2-14-14 (adjusted ratings up)
A+: more lacing
S-: weaker to me
T: definitely more bitter than original review, but there is what I now consider mango flavor (not orange).
M+/O+: starting to enjoy this more and more as a must have when available

#?: 7-4-14 (no adjustments) - seemed more "juicy" and less bitter than previous reviews, closer to original review of a September "by date"
