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.

Appears to be an orange gold, clean beer, with a white pooofy top. Lace is gluey. Aroma is clean, orange soaked pulpy juicy layers, sweet deep spice, tea and nutmeg. Taste has a massive pile of orange, spice, and pine. Bursting with juiciness and flavor. Mouthfeel is chewy, dank, bitter. Body is big. Deceptively very delicately carbonated. Overall this beer is essentially a hop flavorfest and to no surprise another treat from Stone.

Huge thanks to Rutager for this

Enjoy By 4/20/13. Consumed 4/19/13

Lightly hazed golden orange colour, one finger of white head, good amount of lace on the glass. Huge citrus upfront, grapefruit, pineapple, orange, mango and a faint lemon, a bit of sweet honey dew like malt but certainly not shortage of hops in this. Taste is citrusy, grapefruit and pineapple, a bit of dank piney flavours, solid bitterness throughout , starts off dry and hoppy with a touch of sweet malts toward the end. Light dry carbonation, medium bodied and fairly oily as well. Just incredible stuff, cartainly something I would love to have again and again.

Stone Enjoy By (batch 5/17/13) pours out a hazy golden color with a smaller head that retains very well. The nose is crazy hoppy. Tons of tropical and grapefruit hop flavors with an undertone of piney bitterness. The taste presents a literal ton of tropical fruit and grapefruit hops, with a strong hop resin aftertaste. One-note, but tasty as hell. The mouthfeel is on the light side and fairly carbonated, and the drinkability is exceptional. Overall, Stone Enjoy By is an extremely tasty and enjoyable IPA. A little more depth to the hop blend would make it absolutely best in class, but as it is it's one of the best IPAs on the shelf for sure.

Saw this in the store today and had to pick it up, given all the talk about this beer on BA. I must agree that it is most definitely an enjoyable IPA. However, I think it may be lacking some of the malt character that would balance this out a bit more. I would definitely drink this beer again, but I'm not going to replace all my DFH 90-min with this one.
