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.

I think next to American Double IPA they need to put a picture of this (or a sample). This is the stuff that this style is all about. And this is pretty much the best style there is. So this is the stuff.

It pours gorgeous yellow with much head and lace. The aroma is nearly perfect. What could be more perfect? It is overpowering, as appropriate for the style. Crazy amounts of floral and piney.

The taste similarly is a hops overdose. Stupendous. The aftertaste lingers huge and bitter. What a treat. I am going to enjoy several glasses of this after which I will take it easy a bit and then clear my palate, because nothing can hold a candle to this. First rate stuff.

I also have a bomber of this to try later this weekend, but this draft is amazing. I am certain the bottle will be good too.

Drank the Enjoy By 10/25/13 IPA on 10/15/13

a- light copper with a light foamy white head.

s- Beautiful! Tons of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, citrus and hops galore! It even has this unique sour candy aroma that is extremely pleasant!

t- Bitterness on the tip of the tongue that quickly fades to the sweeter citrus side of the beer making it well balanced to say the least. Afterwards the bitterness comes back and lingers alongside a decent floral pine.

m- Medium bodied, perfectly carbonated

o-Phenomenal double IPA! Get it if you can. This beer is probably my favorite IPA alongside Greenflash, and dogfish head 90min IPA.

i will get more before 10/25/13

A- Golden brown with white head.

S- Pine needles. super hoppy smell.

T- Fresh! Couldn't take a sip. Just kept drinking. It's a little thin, which makes it super smooth going down.

M- leaves a great taste. It would go great with spicy food. Can't taste the alcohol. Feels like a 6 or 5% beer.

O- Great beer can't stop drinking it. Glad I got another bottle for another day. I love IPAs and this will be one of my favorites for a long time. Great beer. This, Ruin Ten, Double Bastard, and Arrogant are my go-to beers now.

Served chilled into a fluted tulip.

Pours a hazy bronze color with an inch of airy white head that quickly recedes leaving moderate surface layer and lacing.

Aromas of pine and citrus.

Flavors of both bitter citrus zest and sweet candied citrus peel. There is also a strong pine presence.

Medium bodied and crisp with moderate carbonation and a lingering, bitter aftertaste.

Overall a very nice display of hops. Would definitely try again.

Poured a hazy copper hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was god retention and very good sticky lacing.

The smell featured tropical fruit and pine.

The taste consisted of ripe pineapple, apricot, pine and white pepper atop a firm grainy malt.

The taste was round with a dry finish and no hint of heat.

Overall a superior hop bomb that hides it's ABV very well.

22 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass and consumed on August 31st, 2013.

A- Poured a mostly transparent, copper color with a fluffy off-white head with good retention, and small lively carbonation. Nice lacing, but how much does that really matter?

S- Very hop forward with all sorts of fruity and citrus hop aromas. Tropical fruits, pineapple, leafy herbal hops. A bit of toasty grains and boozy aromas too as it warms. Definitely, some pine in there too.

T- Like sucking on a fresh, wet hop. Bitter on the tips of the tongue all the way through to the bitter finish, but there is enough fruity, hoppy flavor to go along with the bitterness to make for an “enjoyable” experience. The alcohol adds a pleasant flavor and warming finish, but doesn't get in the way of the hoppiness. There seems to be just enough of a malt backbone to keep this beer honest and complement the juicy hops.

M- Full bodied mouthfeel, slick and resinous, but not sticky which could be partly due to the carbonation doing its job. A bitterness hits the back of the palate and throat on the finish; and, along with the retro-olfaction, leaves an herbal, hoppy sensation that lingers.

O- Everything about this double IPA is intense, distinct, and full flavored. The amount of concentrated hop aromas, flavors, and acids that are packed into this beer is quite impressive. Yet it isn't so domineering, because I wish I had another bottle to drink right now. However, I think this beer is making me realize that I'm not a huge fan of double IPA's at this point in my drinking career, which is reflected in my overall score of only 4. With that being said, I can certainly still appreciate the skilled craftsmanship involved in the creation of this fine brew.

Enjoy by 10.25.13, consumed on 09.30.13

A: Very bright, crystal clear gold. No haze of any kind. Decent head that dissipated fairly quickly, nice lacing.

S: Huge tropical fruit, sweet citrus, as well as some underlying pine resin. Malt comes through as a neutral bready character with a little candy-like sweetness that binds with the hops. The aroma is explosive, intense even for the style.

T/M: Big, smooth hop bitterness that lingers all the way through, it is soon met with huge resiny tropical fruit, citrus and pine notes with underlying spicy, oniony complexities. The malt makes an appearance as well, giving a slightly sweet, bready backbone to the beer that works beautifully with the fruity hop notes. Hops just blast through the bone-dry finish.

Overall: Wow... wow. Big-time west-coast hop-bomb! The hops explode in this beer, and while that is getting more and more common, this one does it with incredible complexity and subtlety. You can pull out a huge array of hop flavors, and they all stand distinct, without a messy overall character. The balance is extraordinary, and that is an accomplishment in the West-Coast IPA style. The concept of this beer is awesome, get it to the customer as fast as possible and teach distributors about the importance of fresh IPAs. But, the execution was even better, Mitch Steele nailed this one.

Finally got my hands on an EnjoyBy! Bottled 9/20/13, just screaming freshness.

Appearance: Pours a golden orange with two fingers of foamy whitish head that fades relatively quickly, leaving beautiful lacing.

Smell: Just lovely, with tons of tropical fruit, predominately grapefruit and pineapple with lots of citrus. A good deal of Stone-style west coast hop bitterness and piney aromas come through as well. Freshness is evident here.

Taste: Beautiful strong citrus, with the grapefruit and pineapple of the aroma and some mango as well. Despite this, a great deal of pine and grass come through to strike a remarkably balanced DIPA.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with perfect carbonation and solid hop bitterness. A bit of heat, and a nice crisp dry finish.

Overall: Absolutely fantastic, and I'm glad I finally got to try this one. Great beer and I hope we get it again.

The Beers of California

#95

Bottled Date: 9/20/13

A: Yellow to orange golden with a towering pillow of off white foam that slowly fades to lace on the glass.

S: Mango and pineapple on first pour. Strong citrus, pine and flowers come through as the brew settles. There are also hints of bubble gum and mint founded on a base of bread and honey.

T: This brew brings together the sweetness of mango, pineapple juice, and grapefruit along with honey and cane sugar and juxtaposes that sweetness with earth, pine, flowers, and freshly baked bread. There are also moments of mint and green tea which brings complexity to the palate. Some pepper spice joind the warm finish.

M: The linger is forever and the feel is medium with good supporting carbonation.

O: So fresh and so flavorful. I attribute this mostly to the freshness which really brings the hop flavors out. A must grab and enjoy it now .

Copper yellow in color. Nice full creamy head with solid lacing. Sharp and dry in the mouth. Huge citrus hops with nice bitter after taste. Some herb notes. Not much malt flavors but what would think with DIPA. A nice brew that goes well with most foods. Had beef tacos with my taste.

Pours a bright copper color. Aroma of citrus, pine and dank herb. In the taste, pine and mango like tropical fruityness. Bright citrus and tropical fruit profile with some strong bitterness. Little hint of alcohol but quite bitter with a honey like malt profile. Medium bodied, with a moderate carbonation and smooth overall feel. This is a great imperial IPA, but much too exclusive.

Bomber > Pint Glass

A - Pours a lush clear gold 2 finger of slightly off white head, nice lacing.
S - The aroma is out of control, big mango, pineapple, dank pine, some biscuit bready malt, big juicy tropical fruit hops.
T - Full of those tropical hoppy flavors, nice bready and biscuity malt, some dank pine on the end.
M - Some alcohol burn, but very full, clinging to your palate.
O - Honestly one of the best IPA's you could ever get. Immense tropical fruit flavor but not too sweet, very balanced but bold.

I picked this up and opened it the day it arrived in Ashland, Ky. I must say I am stoked about this brew. Just not getting around to reviewing it.

22 oz brown bottle with a green, white and black label. Pretty standard and gets the point across with Enjoy By IPA 09.13.13. Overall a nice and classy looking bottling but the stuff inside is what matters. Poured this into a stemmed Belgium style tulip glass.

A - golden colored body with a creamy white head. Nice smooth fluffiness to it and lasts throughout leaving a lot of slow moving stick. Superb looking beer. Beautiful and lush. Looks and pours like a dream.

S - fresh fresh hop aroma. Somewhat dank hop aroma. Fresh ripe peaches with a basket of tropical fruits. Small and soft grainy malt in the back ground.

T - soft malt hits first but is an afterthought to the hops that follow. Loads upon loads of gushing hop flavors of ripe peaches, orange, grapefruit rind and tropical fruits. A real dank pine flavor as well as a fresh grassy note creeps up as it screams its freshness and its one of a kind style. A brilliant tasting DIPA. I've never tasted anything like it.

M - nicely bodied and it carries good texture while covering the entire mouthfeel with loads upon loads of fresh and gushing hop fruitiness. Alcohol is present but mainly bc you know it's there and not bc it comes anywhere close to dominating the palate. I i i i i wouldnt call it a balanced As it is a pretty one sided hop affair, but that abundance of hops are indeed balanced Within theirselves making for a Smooth feel and very enjoyable offering.

O - it is everything it says it is. An extremely fresh double ipa with the quality to back up all the hype. It's something ill always look for from now on. Easily one of the best DIPA's on the planet and one of my new favorites. It has it all the right pieces perfectly in place for a truly special release. I sure hope we get the next batch! A must try

Bright sunshine amber with thin white film.
Leaf, tangerine and floral nose.
Mango on toast, then crazy tangerine and resin hop that segue into some gooey skunk.
Orange rind and nectarine end and powdery linger.
Round, lt-med, slight cling, no heat.

Citrus redux. Bright and fresh, with Lagunitas-like tastiness. Roughs up a bit at the end to let you know it's for real but absolutely no heat, making it one of the most smooth and easy DIPAs around.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Enjoy By 9.13.13 - it was nice knowing you all...

A - Pours a very light golden yellow with a nice 1.5 finger head, near white in color. 20+ minutes later very decent lacing remains on the glass and a thick outer ring is still standing, nearly the entire surface of the beer has a very thin film across the top.

S - Smells of aboslutely terrific grapefruit with some mango and pineapple aromas. Some rindy/resinous qualities as well, almost a hint of spice, although I chalk that up to rinds. The more I smell it the more i get a slightly sugary odd aromas, almost like pasta sauce... wierd, this must be the aroma that kills me.

T - Consuming at about 55-60 degrees, maybe slightly warmer than desired, but i like my ipas roughly around 50. Tastes as it smells, initially bitter hops and spiced rinds of grapefruit and possibly orange, sweeter mango type flavors peak through breifly before being fairly overpowered by the resinous/spicy rind flavors at the aftertaste. Aftertaste is dry hoppy bitterness.

M - Really great mouthfeel, well carbonated, medium bodied (at this temp, a little lighter feeling colder, no doubt). Very drinkable and refreshing.

O - Consuming the second glass at a cooler temperature allows more citrusy flavors to shine through the spice i was initially getting from the first glass. fringe 4.5 overall gets the bump up

Review written based on notes. So I was able to enjoy by 9/13/13, at which point the beer becomes angry and turns to molten lava which burns the esophagus.

Appearance - The beer was a handsome copper color with a white head. Lacing was demonstrated on the sides of the glass

Smell - The aroma was most emblematic of pine. One could detect the citrus, but the pine dominates.

Taste - Initially, the tongue alerts the brain to tastes of orange and spice. For a DIPA, one might suggest this beer to be quite thick. Toward the aftertaste, one notes a massive hop hit on the roof of the mouth. The thickness allows the hop burn to linger.

Mouthfeel - This is thick, particularly for DIPA. I don't mean this in a negative way.

Overall - At a bottle share, this DIPA was consumed in succession with Pipeworks Unicorn's Revenge. While this one is good, Unicorn's Revenge was the consensus winner.

1700th review! 22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 8/9/2013. Pours slightly hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of huge pineapple, mango, passion fruit, lemon zest, tangerine, orange rind, peach, floral, pine, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Incredible aromas with big complexity of tropical and citrus hops with a moderate malt balance; and great strength. Taste of big pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, tangerine, orange rind, passion fruit, pine, floral, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, tangerine, orange rind, passion fruit, pine, floral, and light caramel on the finish for a good bit. Incredible complexity of big citrus/tropical hop flavors with surprisingly light pine presence; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a lightly creamy and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an incredible DIPA as expected. All around awesome complexity of tropical/citrus hops; and dangerously smooth to sip on for the ABV. An extremely delicious offering.

A= Pours a beautiful translucent dehydrated piss yellowish orange color with a nice thick two fingers of head on it that holds great retention and lacing on the side of the glass.

S= The smell is wonderful. Big bright hops. Potent as hell I can smell it from a ways away from the glass. Nice and grapefruity smelling.

T= The taste is no different. It has a big grapefruit taste to it. Like a super bright in season ruby red. This baby is rolling on all cylinders with the hops that's for sure.

M= This is perfectly carbonated.

O= This is a great beer. I grabbed it on the last day and it's still drinking like a champ. I would drink this tomorrow even if Stone doesn't recommend it.

Long time craft beer drinker and enthusiast, but this is my first review on Beer Advocate. This review is for 9.13.13.

A - Pours a nice dark copper like a solid Imperial IPA should. About half a finger of head which dissipated a bit quicker than I expected. Some nice lacing.

S - Piney. Like walking into a nursery during Christmas time when you're looking to purchase that perfect tree. Somewhat grassy, but the aroma is deeper than that. Cannabis like in a way as well.

T - Pine, all pine, in a really, really good way. Hits of rosemary. Definitely not citrusy. Again, it's way deeper than that. Almost woodsy but not earthy. Strong hop flavor but surprisingly not bitter. Great finish.

M - Harsh somewhat at first, but finishes extremely smooth. Not as silky as something like Heady, but very good in its own right. A bit of carbonation, a little more than expected. Amazingly, like others have said, very drinkable. Not sessionable by any means, but definitely a beer you can enjoy a few times in a day or night.

O - Just an excellent Imperial IPA. One of the better I've had in awhile. It kind of gets everything right, but the tad bit of harshness before it mellows out stops it from being exceptional. But, truthfully, that's nit picking as this is a tremendous beer when compared to others in its style.

Just opened a bottle of 09.13.13 and this is one of the best beers I've ever had. It tastes like I got it straight from the brewery. Smooth, hoppy without being over-bearing and a finish as smooth as silk. It's everything that I wish Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA would have been without the mouth-destroying feel.

It poured a nice golden hue with a subdued white head. The aroma of hops jumped out of the bottle with fruity citrus notes, a bit of pine and even the dank hops I know and love. There are obviously a lot of hops which is to be expected from a Stone IPA, but they were handled very well. Loads and loads, but balanced so as not to give you the bitter beer face or palate wrecking experience of some IPAs. There were tropical fruits and citrus on the front end with the pine bitterness coming through on the back leaving a nice bitter coating on your palate. All of these great hop flavors were riding a danky hoppiness that held it all together. The Enjoy By IPA really handled the hops with a more delicate balance. One of my all time favorite IPAs.

Dank, dank IPA. Very good. I have had several of the enjoy by batches, and have loved every one. Best consumed on a warm day straight from a pint glass.

A - Standard color for a top-quality IPA. A dark gold with some small sparkles raising in the glass after the pour. A thick finger and a half of off-white head rounding off the top of the pint glass.

S - Like a douglas fur christmas tree. Rosemary, cannabis, cut grass, and grapefruit. Unmistakably an imperial IPA on first whiff.

T - Grapefruit, basil, fresh pine come to mind. Like I said, dank. Strong, yet unoffensive taste. Easy to enjoy. Hops are strong with this one.

M - This feels ridiculously good upon first sip. I was comparing this to RuinTen, which I love, but this just feels better.

O - If I had a choice between this 17th Anniversary, or RuinTen, I would take this beer without hesitation. I enjoy it more than the 17th anniversary... and even more than the 16th Anniversary. I would put this up with the best-of-the-best double IPAs out there. Double Jack, Pliny the Elder, Cafe Racer 15 - Enjoy By is definitely in the big leagues. One of my favorite IPAs. Easily.

Review is done from notes. I had this brew while on vacation in South Carolina. I seem to have trouble finding Stone special releases at home. Anyways...

This review is specifically from a 9.13.13 bottle

A: Poured out a slightly hazy amber color with one finger of white head. Not much retention or lacing to speak of.

S: Big smell of pine, some floral hope and sweet citrus.

T: All the flavors found in the smell but not as potent as I would have expected. The background flavor is of biscuit and pineapple.

M: Medium, creamy body with a lighter and softer carb.

O:These "Enjoy By" brews are wonderful. Also tried a Enjoy By 4.21.13 on tap in prior experience and was very impressed. 9.3 abv and you can hardly tell. A very smooth DIPA that is great to sip on. I would definitely go out of my way for one of these.

Enjoyed 3 bottles of this fine brew between 2 and 3 weeks after their bottling date. Extremely floral on the nose and in the mouth. Very crisp and fresh. One of my favorite IPA's.

I had the opportunity to consume three bottles of Stone's Enjoy By (9.21.12) which was the first run of this special release the brewery made available to the greater tri-state area, being New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York.
