How is this beer ranked BELOW their regular IPA? These rankings are insane. Anyone with a palate for good beer would agree that the Enjoy By totally blows away the regular Stone IPA.
Hell yes to this beer, lightning strikes six times! Have been back for more on 2 other occasions to my local beer store. Really did not think this would still be around, but it is. Taking advantage of the general public in my area not knowing about this. Enjoy your case of Bud Light.. See review of the first one:
I spotted an open case of these at my beer grocer. They were so new that they couldn't even find the price on them. Bottled a little more than 1 week ago from enjoying!!!
I pounced on the opportunity.
A grapefruit BOMB pervades the nostrils in a pleasant way.
Grapefruit and bitter finish, and clean.
One caveat is this: As I have enjoyed the 6 bottles over the past 2.5 weeks, yes, there is a marked difference between drinking this a week ago and now. It will never be as good as when you can drink less then a week after it was bottled.
This and the Ballast Point Sculpin IPA are the two best IPA's I have ever had. I guess the conundrum with this is once you have had these Enjoy By's, it ruins your palate for other IPA's, which is unfair. Once you have had this, it is hard to accept anything less.
Such a treat, and on a select few of perfect IPA's.

22 oz bottle of Enjoy by 7/4/14
A- Nice straw colored IPA. Standard bubbles and white head. Picture purfect IPA
S - Smell of a nice blended hop bill. Grass, pine, resin.
T- Not over the top hops, but I'm getting a pretty standard hop bill. Well balanced, but with all the IPAs on the market, this one doesn't differentiate itself.
M- Standard IPA, not too think, not too thick. Tiny bubbles to disperse the flavor without annoying the palet.
O- A solid IPA. Well balanced and a decent hop bill. Will probably buy a bottle of each release as long as it is under $10

4.39/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
On-tap, into growler, into snifter.
A- Clear amber with yellow hue. Finger of white head. Medium amount of lacing. Carbonation noticeable.
S- Best part of this ale, although it tastes great too. Lots of citrus and tropical fruits coming off. Tangerine, guava, orange, and lemon are very apparent. Lots of flora. Just of touch of grass and pine. Not much of a malt presence, but just enough.
T- Very juicy, hop-forward DIPA. Not quite as many citrus flavors as the smell, but definitely still fruity and flowery. Bit of pine as the smell indicated and a little bread. Alcohol noticeable, but not by much.
M- Crisp and light bodied for the most part. Carbonation present. Just the right bight.
O- Another favorite DIPA of mine that can party with the top guys. Very drinkable and refreshing. The flavor of this really reminds me of Pliny, but with a stronger bite and bitterness. Wish this was a little more available, as this is the first time I've noticed in the area and there were purchasing restrictions. Highly recommended and kudos to Stone.

4.83/5 rDev +9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
A: Pours a beautiful clear gold, white head quickly dissipates.
S: Citrus and floral hops, nice and strong.
T: A wonderful mix of citrus and floral characters, with just enough pine to balance out the sweet honey malts.
M: Medium body, medium low carb, matches nicely with taste. This is a pretty big beer, not an easy drinker.
O: I can feel the alcoholic warmth, was confused until I looked it up and saw that it is 9.4%... Hides the alcohol really well, hidden by the bitter pine finish. I was expecting this to be more in the 6-7% range, the value is much better as a high ABV beer. Not as in your face flavor as most IPAs that are this strong... Man this is a good beer. If you see it, grab it. There's a reason Stone is legendary for making IPAs.
