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.

Enjoy by 4.1.13. A bit old but its the only one I am going to find in the area. Pours a slightly hazy golden straw color with a soapy off-white head that settles into a light cap.

The aroma is hoppy, shocker. Big grapefruit scent with some pepper and a touch of tropical fruit, mainly pineapple.

The taste is fairly grassy but still has some notes of grapefruit. Some tropical fruit notes but not too sweet, which is good. A bit peppery and earthy. The malt base is a touch bready but mainly sits in the background. A nice hoppy beer but it probably faded a bit.

Moderate feel with fizzy carbonation. Bitter on the palate but not in a crushing way. Its a big beer but its not sticky or thick.

Enjoy By was enjoyable, wish I could of had it fresher. Good hop profile with a nice light malt base.

Enjoy By 4/20/13 poured from 22oz into a pint glass

A golden hazy hello color with a few carbonation bubbles rising to the top , a pretty white 2 finger head with lacing sticking to the sides of the glass and hanging on through the whole glass

The first thing I smell is the hops , then some sweet malt then a little bit of booze on the end. The hop smell has a faint citrus smell to me but not over powering

This beer goes down smooth and is very refreshing. Not too much carbonation and not to heavy on the tounge , every thing is just right

The taste is really complex , not too bitter , starts off with a hoppy flavor with the malty sweetness hitting in the middle with the booze finishing off at the end , not too sweet , not too hoppy and the booze isn't too over powering. This is a really great beer and I will be buying more of it

A- Pours a very nice bright golden straw/amber color. Created a quick 2 finger width off-white head that faded quickly leaving some lingering lacing.

S - Wow, smells amazing. A great hop hit, with great grapefruit and mango accents. A little pine and malt there for good measure. It reminds me of Sucks a little.

T - More of the same. An great hop blast, with wonderful citrus throughout.

M - Crisp, light bodied and leaves a dry palate. It is smooth despite it's higher ABV.

O - The last batch (and first) I had of this was back in December and it really surprised me. This batch did exactly the same. This beer is amazing. Fresh, easy to drink and well balanced. Well done Stone.
