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.

P- Thanks to my buddy Matt for this one...however I am drinking a few days past the enjoy by date.

A- crystal clear amber color that has a nice fluffy 2 finger head. Spiderweb lacing and mountainous peaks.

S- a nice dank piney leaf smell with hints of citrus smell. The combination is aromatic and pleasing to the nose. like a citrus pine needle.

F- strong citrus and pine with a slight malt base. The hops are juicy and sticky.

M-hoppy and light bodied. Dry in the mouth but crisp and refreshing.

O- great beer and a def spot in my top 10 beers. I am thinking it could be a lil better if I would have got it before the enjoy by date.

Stone's Enjoy By IPA is like an experience one would have with a virgin and her first exploration into coitus. It is one to savor, and not too pound.

This is my favorite DIPA, and one to savor.

Complex, but inviting tropical aromas pervade the nostrils.

Taste is bitter with the notes following through.

This is one of the best DIPA's out there.
