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 - looks great, like an IPA should.

S - smells wonderful, just as a hop head like myself had dreamed of.

T - out of this world!

M - hardy and full of citrusy hops.

O - this is up there with the best of 'em my friends. Stone has knocked another one out of the park, not too many competitors able to touch this one! Simply amazing.

Post Initial Review Note: 09.13.13 was close to a perfect 5! 11.13.13 not as good, recommendation is to try many releases as possible and often! 2.14.14 closer to 9.13.13 release, great stuff Stone! 4.20.14 release was superb, really not digging the 12.26.14 release, maybe next time! 02.14.14 was excellent!

Poured Enjoy By 11.12.13 into a Belgian Tulip.

A - Pours a dark golden with a full two fingers of white puffy creamy head.

S - Tropical goodness comes through with pineapple, grapefruit, some lemon and orange with pine. Smells awesome!

T - Wow, very nice. The flavors are very close to the nose. Getting grapefruit, pineapple, lemon and orange. Hoppy pine needles mid palate. Just a bit of alcohol on the aftertaste.

M - Very smooth, medium mouthfeel, with medium carbonation.

O - Yeah, this is good stuff. Is it better than RuinTen, I doubt it, but good nonetheless.
Enjoy yet another quality IPA from Stone. Cheers!

Enjoy by 10.25.13

A: clear, nice golden orange color. Good head and lacing

S: Amazing! Tropical fruits (maybe nectarine), citrus, pineapple, grapefruit, bit of pine and dankness.

T: Almost as great as the smell! Same flavors as smell, bit of malty sweetness, great bitterness. Not much booze at all.

M: nice and lightly creamy

Overall fantastic hops! The standard year round IPAs from Stone are pretty good, but these Enjoy By beers are world class.

09.13.13

A: This poured a clear light gold with some white head.
S: It smelled like huge amounts of fresh grapefruit and mango and apricot, with some herbal and resin hops and a bit of honey.
T: It tasted like bitter herbal and resin hops, with some grapefruit zest and unripe apricot. It had a clean and lasting very bitter aftertaste.
M: It was fairly thick with moderate carbonation. Nice full body.
D: This was a fantastic punch in the mouth! The scent was phenomenal, and the taste was great. The body was good, and the alcohol was well hidden. The finish was powerful, so it was easier to sip. This one lives up to the hype. Impressive brew, and top tier IPA.
