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 had the pleasure to have this in bottle and on tap. For a beer with a abv of around 9 it sure doesn't taste like it. It was a nice aroma and an excellent hoppy taste. The only bad thing about this beer is its avalibility. Unless you live on the left coast its gonna be hard to get some here in mass, but if you are fortunite to get your hands on it enjoy every ounce of this wonderfull beer.

enjoy by 9.13.13 poured into a Stone Ruination pint glass

A- bright golden orange hue with a frothy head that quickly thinned out but lingered in the glass

S- strong passionfruit with hints of tangerine, grapefruit, bit of bready malt, very inviting

T- the big passionfruit note is still there though a bit overwhelmed by some of the bitter citrus components of the hop profile, rush of grapefruit, tangerine, mango, very bright. no sign of the abv

M- Dry, crisp, few notches above thin, solid

O- this is just a notch below the top tier IPAs for me, great IPA and a must buy for me whenever it comes around

This pours golden with a delicious looking creamy head. Where are the bubbles?! Very few are surfacing. I see through this and the body appears lighter than I would have guessed based on the abv.
Juicy citrus apricot hop greatness. Inviting pine and resin. This smells fresh and fantastic.
Tastes dank and and delicious. More oily pine than fruit in the taste, unlike the initial aroma of this brew. And with a spicy bitterness leading up to the finish, in a lemon-like way. Finishes more abruptly dry.
Smooth and prickly.
Highly enjoyed. Highly recommended.

I've been told that "Enjoy By IPA" varies from batch to batch. In that case, I've had a taste from an amazing batch, because this was as exceptional as an IPA gets. The nose was fruity, floral, not too herbal or piney; I won't bore anyone with talk of lacing or head retention, lets cut right to the flavor. Oh my god. The marriage of fruity and citrusy hops is mind blowingly delicious and so different from the herbal, piney IPAs that Stone is known for. If you are a fan of IPAs, you must try this and see for yourself. I dream about this beer at night and think about it when I'm thirsty. I'm hooked!

this is the best beer i've ever had and I drink alot of beer. Amazing how they've dry-hopped the SHI@#$ out of this beer to give this the nose of a handful of fresh picked hops! But, this beer stays away from most of the bitter hop aromas and is overall extremely floral, hoppy but easy and drinkable.

a - golden color in the glass

s - the MOST aromatic beer you will ever smell, which is whole point of this beer. Total floral (citra) hop aroma on the nose. Like you walked into a field of blooming, springtime hops. FUCK@#$ unreal.

t - good medium body and easily drinkable. clean finish with a nice crisp floral hops on the tongue, surprisingly void of any bittering hopes.

m - med body, easy.

o - 10/10. buy as many as you can while you can get it.

Serving type: on-tap
