Listing for all Stone Enjoy By xx.xx.xx IPA beers.


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.

batch 7 thanks to the Coppermine Pub

super nice and clean white head, sticky as hell bubbles cling like an ex, dark straw and crystal clear, just a trace of bubbles floating up, the head fades out pretty quickly, nothing much to look at...

hop cone. (period)
jeezus, pine sol bomb
flash bang of alpha almost to the point of acrid-ity, the malts exist but man are they fighting for air, you can also pick up a touch of the alcohol, really nice hop nose but sort of one note-ish

taste etc...
incredibly full mouthfeel, coats the tongue, all the mishaps in the nose are not problems here, this drinks really smooth but yet does remind you at the end that the ABV is right there, the bitterness is nice but not killing my taste buds, subtle carbonation with the weight really just makes this too damn silky, I really am reminded of when I first tried Ruination but this is much smoother but just as deadly, this really has a backbone to support the ABV and ridiculous use of hops, this keeps drawing you back in.

sometimes beers are reputations only, this shows some really nice maturity in craft, there is some ways to go to a perfect brew... but man alive just the drinking phase of this one is damn skippy.. meaning? don't pass this one up, stone could by all means just sit on their ass, but they don't, and I respect that. They keep coming up to bat.

Amazingly fresh, Stone Enjoy By 4-20-13 pours a beautiful honey-golden color with a touch of amber in there as well. An inch or so of white head caps the brew, and it slowly dissipates while leaving a ton of sticky lacing. Hops aromas burst from the glass. Citrus, pine resin, and freshly mowed grass provide a dominate hop presence in the nose, with just a touch of burnt toast providing any malty hints. Fruity citrus flavors, as well as caramel malt sweetness open up on the palate as floral hop flavors, and a bit of pine resin pull through the finish. The sweet malt flavors provide excellent balance. This amazingly fresh and tasty brew is medium in both body and carbonation. The next batch out is 5-17-13, get your hands on this amazing Imperial IPA!!

Amazingly this showed up in my little rural burg. Thanks to Stone for throwing a bone to the little guys.
Batch #7
Really pleasant fresh hop aroma with no sense of any harshness at all. Reasonable complex hop character-sweet fresh fruit is most forward and quite nice.
Brilliantly clear and not very dark for style. Solid gold. Dense rather white head not quite making an inch on a full bottle pour.
A bit of excess shows in the flavor. Fortunately it mingles with other more pleasing flavors. Bitterness especially in the long finish. The complexity of the hop flavors a little harder to identify in the taste (little more of a mash of hop flavors , and while this is clearly a hop forward drink the pale malt foundation will be recognized.
Slightly lighter body than most in this style, but it's not an issue. Helps with drinkability. A nice smooth drink with carbonation that enhances the experience. Some warmth in the gut, but this drinks lighter than the alcohol would indicate.
This one, for me, is better than the sum of the parts. Not a "well blow me down" experience, but a very enjoyable beer. I really like the decreased intensity and it crosses into a complex big beer that drinks nicely.

Enjoy By 09-13-13: My second tasting of this fantastic DIPA . Great hoppy, pine aroma, balance and you can truly taste the freshness. The alcohol is a bit high, but to me, the bottle is just the right amount for personal consumption. But, the price went up at our local wine store... I hope it's not going to get more expensive so I can hord a bunch of these without breaking my bank.

Enjoy By 05-17-13: What a nice IPA, crisp, perfect for a Spring day evening. Not technical, but just a note to say I enjoyed the beer. I'm surprised to find it in the local wine store, but they had a couple of cases that came in yesterday (unannounced, of course), so I grabbed a case and will finish it by the date. High ABV, so my score may be skewed.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This is for the 05/17/13 edition.

Nose: Pine resin front and center is joined by a burnt resin streak, with everything else taking a distant backseat. The rest of the balance goes to hints of brown sugar, orange peel, and honey. Palate: No surprise that pine resin dominates the attack but is also joined by bitter citrus and a hint of malty sweetness. Malt and bread notes form the mid-palate. Pine resin and bitter grapefruit linger on the finish.

Some 30 minutes after the initial pour, the added warmth has given the nose some sticky sweetness. At the outset, this DIPA was quite jagged and the pine resin quite pronounced. With some warmth, sweetness is more evident and things are more balanced overall. This really is quite good.

A: Perfectly clear gold/amber with a foamy white head.

S: Cleanses-the-senses fresh - crisp, clean pine and sweet grapefruit. With a good swirl a pungent, musty pink grapefruit astringency arrises. There are some spicy floral notes

T: Incredibly drinkable . Crisp bitterness up front, in the middle of the mouth a tropical fruit burst, finishes dry. There is notable orange juice and mango that carries through as well as fresh pine.

P: Fits the other aspects of the beer perfectly. Outrageously drinkable

O: Another great batch - a fantastic beer

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice glass. 05.17.13 batch bottled on 04/12/13.

Appearance: Pours a bright and clear copper golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About two fingers of white head that slowly fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A big and bold hoppy aroma with lots of citrus fruit and earthy pine. Strong ripe tropical citrus fruit presence upfront with big hints of grapefruit, orange, mango, pineapple, tangerine, papaya, melon, and lemon. Also some hints of spicy pine resin and earthy grassy hops. Some sweet malt in the background with hints of biscuit, caramel, and yeast. Also some hints of candy like sugar and honey. Very hop forward and juicy.

Taste: Like the smell hints, a big bitter taste of fresh hops with lots of citrus and pine. Big ripe citrus fruit taste with notes of grapefruit, orange, mango, tangerine, pineapple, melon, papaya, and lemon. Strong dank taste of pine resin. Earthy notes of grass. Some sweet malt in the background with notes of bready biscuit, grain, caramel, and yeast. There is some sweetness coming from a little candy sugar and honey like notes. Huge hop driven taste. Very good.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very juicy and oily. Very drying finish. Alcohol heat is hidden by the heavy bitter hops.

Overall: A great West Coast imperial IPA. Very good taste of citrus and pine spice that is very fresh.

5 17 13 22oz bottled on 4/12/13 (7 days old) from Quality Liquors in Salem, MA. Poured into a 14oz water goblet.

A - Crystal clear yellow with a minimal head, hardly any foam. Does leave a nice cascading lace around the glass. Not much carbonation.

S - Ganja skunky (in a good way) hop smell. Dank sharp heady hop smell. Really get a sense of the freshness of the beer once it is exhaled.

T - Stanky clementine flavored draw. Vanilla and scotch malt notes make for a sweet, complex experience. Heady hop taste with a fresh bitterness.

M - A little thinner than some of Enjoy By's Past batches. Very little carbonation. Very little kickback from the 9+% alcohol.

O - Yet another exceptional Enjoy By shipped fresh by Stone. One of the best experiences you will have with a pure West Coast IPA. Still, both April Enjoy By batches were a bit better.

Enjoy by 5.17.13

This brew pours with a nice little foamy head and a caramel colored body. The aroma is sweet succulent hops; both very grassy and tropical, this brew can be smelled from across the room. The flavor just bursts with tropical hoppiness, the gamut is run from mangos and pears all the way to pineapple and all sorts of citrus. You get some of the cattiness that is found in Simcoe beers, so I wouldn't be surprised if that hop or a close relative was used. The mouthfeel is lighter than expected, especially for the ABV. I could drink way too much of this.

One of the better DIPAS I've run across. Enjoy by IPA is an excellent example of the style, however, I find that this beer is difficult to come across. Nevertheless, if I see this beer again [with a different date of course, I'm sure this batch will be gone in 3 days], I will buy it.

Enjoy by 5.17.13, bottled on 4.12.13
This beer was bottled 1 week ago from today, and has made it from the brewery in SoCal to a shelf in my local beer shop in Atl, GA in 1 week. Not sure that has ever happened before!

A - Yellow golden hue with a tiny bit of clarity. Whats impressive here is the 3-4 fingers of head and lace left all over the glass!

S - Ok, this aroma is off the charts. Pine cone galore! Fresh hops. Almost burns your nose hairs off its so pungent. Beautiful

T - Like the smell, off the charts piny hops. Sweet, smooth, well balanced. Delicious!

M - Oily and slick. Well carbonated.

O - A fresh hop lovers dream. Glad to have the last 2 series, after finding the 4.1.13 in NYC last month. 2 in a row have made it to ATL, hoping that trend continues!

Poured from a one week old bottle.

Pours an attractive golden straw color. Dense white head.
A very nice looking beer.

Smells of tropical fruits, pine, berries.

Tastes of bitter hops. Bitter grapefruit, spicy, earthy hops. Some alcohol on the backend.

Mouthfeel is full without being too syrupy. Moderate to low carbonation.

A great beer no doubt.

appearance: Clear golden. Full off white head and lacing.
smell: Pine and grapefruit leap from this nose. Hops are sizzlin you might say.
taste: More of the same. Mouth ripping hops. Finish is not as bitter as expected (but plenty bitter). Pretty dry. Impressive array of tastes.
overall: Another fine Stone IPA. I guess I'm not as impressed as the overall BA community but a fine DIPA.

Had #: 1337 on BA. Elite.

Enjoy by 5.17.13 has finally landed in MN. This was bottled on 4.12.13 and consumed one week later - Extremely fresh. It pours a clear light gold body with a sizable head that lasts for a bit.

The nose brings on tons of fresh tropical fruit. It smells much like a Surly Abrasive Ale. Lots of pineapple, citrus, grapefruit, mango, sweet peaches, and a little bit of pine. The taste follows very nicely with potent tropical hops and lots of bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied and light carbonation. Unique in its own way. Fresh Stone FTW!

05.17.13 Batch

Clear, light amber color with two fingers of head that settles to a thin cap. Moderate amount of lacing is left down the glass.

To me this smells a little catty. Also pine tar, citrus, and dankness.

Dry, hoppy, and bitter. The hops are strong and taste fresh. Citrus, pine, and dank green flavor. Absolutely dry malt profile with little flavor of its own. Definitely putting the hops on display with this one. Alcohol is not detectable.

Medium body with really nice carbonation. Just about perfect for a beer like this.

This beer delivers the hop goods. Not sure if it is worth it or not. Worth a try at least once.

The Enjoy by 04.01.13 batch. Didn't mean to take it so literally, but I've had a lot of fresh IPAs to get through. Thanks to BeerThirty for yet another California IPA. Tasted 30 March 2013.

Pours a deep yellowish orange. Mostly clear, but looking through it, I can just make out my hand on the other side of the glass. One finger of almsot-white head, good retention, nice lacing. A thin stream of bubbles drifting up. Solid.

Smell is fantastic. Huge melon, grapefruit, and sweet orange. Impressively fruity, juicy and sweet. And it's smooth and full all the way through, with no holes, gaps, or sharp edges. Among the very best I've encountered. The only ones that might surpass it, in my experience, are Heady Topper, Abrasive, and Lagunitas Sucks. That is truly impressive company.

Taste is solid, but just kinda straight. A little sweet, drifting into half-chalky bitter. Not bad, but not all that flavorful. Balanced, with a little sweet and a little bit more bitter. But not a ton of positive flavors.

Mouthfeel is good. Medium-bodied, smooth and mouth-filling. A bit of stickiness. The carbonation is really nice, in a way that adds a lot to the beer. It starts out smooth and placid, then rises up in a rush of small bubbles, fuzzy, before drifting back down like a receding wave. Lasting, slowly fading away. Delightful.

A really good IPA, though it's mostly carried by the amazing smell. But I'm a sucker for aromatic IPAs, so I really dig it. If I could, I'd buy this regularly.

Enjoy By 05.17.13, bottled on 04.12.13.

Rich golden body, excellent clarity, bone white head settles into a quarter inch of persistent foam leaves sheets of lace. Citrus rinds, pineapple, mango, lightly sweet and spicy nose. Taste is a blast of spicy, resin and citrus pith flavors heaped on all at once. Bitterness is pervasive with upwelling of sweet malts, further layers of mango, papaya and poneapples adding delicious flavor, balance and heft. The balance is just spectacular exactly right IMO for an IPA. Body is medium with a velvety creamy yet crisply carbonated mouthfeel. A moderate, spicy bitterness lingers and fades into the finish. Excellent, excellent. Very Delicious, and from Escondido to my glass in Minneapolis within 6 days.

9/13/13 Enjoy By: Excellent. Really enjoyable.

Pours clear amber with a one finger bright white head, with good retention and lacing. The aroma is very tropical with grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and pine.

The taste is just like the aroma. Both bitter and sweet with grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and pine. There is a small malt backbone, which is not very noticeable, but it is there.

Medium bodied, above average carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink. Finishes somewhat dry, and the 9.40 % abv is hidden very well. This is an excellent Imperial IPA, well worth waiting for.

The 5.17.13 version that was bottled on 4.12.13 and enjoyed on 4.17.13

Appearance: Slight copper color, very clean looking body. Above average carbonation which was very active throughout. Just below a finger of head on the pour which was light and fluffy. Sticky lacing left on the glass while drinking. Enjoyed out of a tulip shaped glass.

Smell: Extremely bright and fresh hops hit right away. There is a very strong malt backbone which became much more of a player as this beer warmed up a bit. Very rich syrupy tones provided great complexity for this aroma.

Taste: A touch of lemon, prairie grass, spices, and some sugary hops. The hops are light and exotic, much different then other DIPAs. The body takes a heavy turn and the malt backbone felt in the aroma comes in hard on the finish of this brew. The transition from light fresh bones to saturated malt is outstanding. Feels like two different beers. Some spices are also felt on the aftertaste along with waves of hops still hitting the palette.

Mouthfeel: Bubbly carbonation is light on the palette. A good mixture of dryness and sweetness.

Overall: Little doubt at this point that these Best By IPAs by Stone are the real deal, no gimmicks here. Having this beer reminded me of my first experience with IPAs when I was getting into craft beer (the Stone IPA), felt like firecrackers going on in my mouth. So many things going here, just oustanding. Credit to Stone for continuing to be innovators in the field and just another example of their masterful craftsmanship.

On tap, at the Stone brewery. Was a little disappointed, hit them up on a Wednesday, they had none. Hit 'em up again on Friday, bam, there it was. Batch 7.

First thing I notice is the amazing clarity going on here. Seriously, it looks like a mass produced lager, which is a pretty amazing feat once you realize how much hopping it took to make this beer. Even has around 3/4" of head, white, on it, which again, is pretty amazing given all the hops/hop oil up in this.

Smell wasn't massively hoppy, it was good, but it didn't permeate my nose with tons of hops. Not a letdown, but didn't live up to the rest of the characteristics about the beer that blew me away.

Taste, hops are plenty noticeable, there's hardly a malt bill to it, but somehow, there is no alcohol heat, the bitterness is kept down, even though it seems to have plenty of Simcoe hops to it. I think there might be some Galaxy and Nelson/Mosaic around here too. Summit? Only if in small quantities, its far from a prime time player in this hop meld. Green apple hops, tropical mango. Its actually one of the most gentle double ipas I've ever had, and I mean that in a good way. Some pine and mint undercurrents to the hop flavors. Mouthfeel continues to impress, how does this taste so light and abv around only 5-6ish? Plenty dry as well. Must have used some sugar to dry this out and keep a light body, which it works quite well. Slightly grassy as it warms. Stayed away from heavy caramel. This one is biscuit light in terms of malt flavor and additions.

This is one of the best double ipas bottled. I had mine on draft, but it caused me to go buy a bottle from the gift shop.

Must try if you call yourself a hophead.

Enjoy By 4.20.13 opened a few days ago.

A: Holy shit. The first thing I noticed was the clarity of this beer! It looks like a macro lager! A deep golden color with a solid white head. This beer could be used in billboards. This is what perfect IPAs look like in my head.
S: A blend of tropical fruits and pine resin. Fresh mango, peach, pineapple. Lots of citrus (orange, grapefruit, lemon). *Smelled very boozy towards the end. That was my fault though, I got distracted for a bit and let it warm up more than I wanted. Still great though.
T: Huge hop bite! Citrus and pine flavors blend together perfectly. Some nice toasted malts to hold up those hops. Ends with a resinous bitterness that doesn't linger too long, just right. Alcohol is very well hidden.
M: Light/medium bodied. Nice, medium carbonation. Great for the style.
O: A relatively easy to find, widely distributed IIPA that happens to be one of the best I've tried? Yes that sounds like a winner to me.

This is the Enjoy by 4/20/13 version and was sampled on 4/14/13

A - Pours a beautiful crystal clear light honey color with a perfect 3 finger white head with great retention. Great lacing in this beer as well.

S - Amazing smelling beer. I got a huge aroma of orange right of the bat followed by other citrus like grapefuit and lemon. There is also a slightly floral smell to the beer. Not much in the way of malts or grains aromas.

T - Wow, big citris punch. Orange and grapefruit right up front followed with a piney betterness. THe hops are perfect in this beer. Interestingly enough, at first I could not detect any malts, but as the beer warmed I was able to pick up more and more of the caramel malts.

M -Medium bodied beer that feels both spicy and zesty. Still, its a very smooth easy drinking beer for 9.4 ABV

O - Great job Stone Brewing. I'll be seeking this beer out with each release date. Its a very easy sipping double IPA. Doesnt get much better!

Stone's "Enjoy By 12.21.12 Double IPA". A brew to drink before the world ends! 22oz bomber. 9.4%ABV. Bottling date of 11/16/2012

Appearance: Pours a light golden honey color. This beer is ultra-clear and not hazy in the slightest. 1/2 inch white head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring.

Aroma: Very fruity. Smells of pineapple, mango, grapefruit, light hint of pine and leather, big citrus notes, finally a slight bready/biscuity aroma.

Taste: Oily hop resin, piney, big citrus, almost an earthy/woody taste. It's spicy, herbal, and quite dank.

Mouthfeel: A medium-body. Light and dry with a slightly peppery finish with loads of delicious bitterness that coats my mouth for a few seconds before disappearing.

Overall: This beer masks its 9.4% ABV very well. Dangerously drinkable for a double IPA. And for a 10 day old bottled beer? That's a great win for fresh beer as time is usually not the friend of IPA's. This beer is quite delicious and I had the foresight to purchase 2 more bottles. The aroma of this Stone beer is just phenomenal.

Poured from 22 oz. bottle to tulip glass. Enjoy by 4/20/2013.

A: Clear, golden, light and foamy white head. Fairly active carbonation.

S: Beautifully strong bouquet of piney hops, grapefruit, green grass, and a hint of lemon zest. The freshness really comes through in the nose of this one.

T: Malt backbone with bright citrus hops, grapefruit, cut grass, juniper, and white pepper.

M: A bit oily, medium-bodied. Fresh hops but doesn't rip your tongue off with bitterness like some of Stone's double IPAs.

O: Cool concept, reasonably priced for the freshness and demand for unique beers in my area, and a pretty good Double IPA to boot.
