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.

Poured into a stemmed wineglass from the 22 oz. bottle.

a: Orange/ light copper,2 finger head without much lacing.

s: Floral, citrus one of the best smelling beers I've had.

t: Citrusy but also a little piney and balanced. Nice bitterness, magnum bittering hops? Outstanding.

m: Moderate body, a little creamy nice carbonation.

o: Excellent beer, Nice balance between the piney bitterness of an old school southern CA ipa and modern citrus hops.

I've had several of these "best by" beers and they have all been delicious. I have had slightly maltier incarnations, but this one, 11/12/13, is one of the brighter and sweeter specimens. it has the maltiness that an imperial should while still getting that sharp and bright hop character that Stone IPAs are famous for.

very pretty pour. lots of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass that keep rising as it sits. some fingers of foam decorating the glass, bright amber color. very uniform. grows more bitter as it warms.

it smells like heaven. very bright, very warm, very sweet. a little bit of grapefruit and bread, which is better than it sounds.

does not drink like a 9% beer. very easy to quaff. way too easy to quaff! I look forward to more beers in this series.

This is the 11/12/13 model. Light, lively and fresh. A very deceptive 9.4% on the palate, it hits the head not long after passing the gums. Mild peach and nectarine notes in the flavor, along with the same sort of tartness and bitterness those fruits can provide. A lingering top note of sweetness is there that persists beyond the IPA bitterness.
I've had a few of these Enjoy By beers and they've all been lovely. I hope Stone keeps up the trend.

Very appealing, pours nice with amber color. It smells floral with piney notes in the end, some citrus hints... Refreshing taste, the fruity notes hids the alcohol very well. Smooth! Overall...me like it so much...I will definitely buy a couple of more bottles.

Pours a clear golden orange with a medium off-white head. Aromas of grapefruit rind and vanilla. Taste begins with some massive apricot, followed by some candied dates, then some resinous, pine Forrest finish. Mouthfeel is super rich. Overall an excellent DIPA. The expiration date being clearly marked is a HUGE plus, I wish all hoppy beers were labeled this way.
