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.

What an awesome beer. Had this twice. Last one was the 11/12/13 batch. Crisp, clean, tropical and just outstanding. From memory, appearance was clear as you expect from stone. Aroma and taste all tropical hop goodness, just what I look for in an IPA. As of today this beer tops my list.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured into a shaker pint glass. 11-12-13 edition

The beer is a slightly foggy light honey color. An eggshell colored head recedes to a soapy film. Random light lacing on the glass.

Tasmanian hops? Smells like it. Sour, musty grapefruit, and onions. Lots of onions.

Tastes like Tasmanian hops. Grapefruit sourness, a cardboard kind of musty note. And onions.

The mouthfeel is not as heavy as 9.4% suggests.

Overall, I did not like this at all. There is an overwhelming taste of onions, and I find it offensive on the palate and nose. I will try the next Enjoy By and hope for more pine and no onion.

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

Poured from 22 oz bottle into tulip glass. The 11/12/13 batch.

A: Pours a beautiful light golden color. Crystal clear with 1-2 finger off white head. Some lacing.

S: Massive fruity hops. Grapefruit, pineapple, oranges.

T: Slightly sweet with big fruity hops. Citrus flavors are prominent with a nice bitterness.

M: Nice body. Refreshing with a nice bitter finish.

O: Really nice IPA. Really excited that I got a chance to grab a bottle, and even more so that 12/13/13 is coming to Alabama.
