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.

Bomber poured into my DFH pint glass. Small head that recedes over a the period of a minute.

Nice coloration, tinny amber tone. Good carbonation.

Smells like extremely dank hoppy citrusy goodness. I like very much. Let's do this.

Tastes like it smells. Extremely dank hops dominate, with a few citrus notes in the beginning. I can taste that citra and nelson sauvin goodness that seems to dominate the other hop varieties. Lemon zest and orange dominates midway through the taste, and the hops seem to linger in the background, but are very well kept under wraps until the swallow finishes, and then you can taste that dankiness after. As you drink it, the complexity heightens, and that lemony citrusy goodness comes through until you finish it, never really losing any momentum. Awesome.

Mouthfeel is pretty much perfect. Nuff said.

Overall, I thought this would be more of a hop bomb like they advertised, but I certainly wasn't disappointed. Amazing beer by an amazing brewery. The novelty of the whole thing adds a great sexiness to the whole experience. I'm glad I could get more than one bottle of this, and look forward to sharing this with others. Good job, Stone. Keep this stuff coming!

One of my new favorite series, a big, bold and fresh IPA. Citrus plays second fiddle to strong earthy Flavors. A well hidden 9.4% ABV makes this a must seek and buy~

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Seventh Batch.

A- Pours a dark golden color with a 3/4 inch off-white head that retains a long time before slowly shrinking to an 1/8 inch head. Semi-resilient lacing leaves cloud-patterned wisps behind on the glass.

S- So pungent of a hop aroma it bypasses the usual citrus notes and moves on to a dank, almost chemical-like green aroma. Hard to describe but just think of all the piney, fresh, resinous hop flavors you know and love concentrated into a strong bouquet that's just lovely.

T- Intense bitterness lays on the palate smoothly with lots of citrus and pine notes that also linger in the aftertaste. Alcohol is concealed very well allowing the brightness of the hops to shine and play on the tongue.

M- Slightly sharp and oily with a lightish body and medium carbonation.

O- Hard to imagine IPAs can get much better than this, though it's possible and I've witnessed it. Not the best of its kind, but it ranks up there with the other heavy hitters. Certainly the best DIPA Stone has ever made though, IMO.

A- Golden brown with white head.

S- Pine needles. super hoppy smell.

T- Fresh! Couldn't take a sip. Just kept drinking. It's a little thin, which makes it super smooth going down.

M- leaves a great taste. It would go great with spicy food. Can't taste the alcohol. Feels like a 6 or 5% beer.

O- Great beer can't stop drinking it. Glad I got another bottle for another day. I love IPAs and this will be one of my favorites for a long time. Great beer. This, Ruin Ten, Double Bastard, and Arrogant are my go-to beers now.

22 oz. bottle, Enjoy By 09.13.13. Poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours an orange/copper color. About one finger of a light khaki head that hangs around fairly well and sticks to the glass as it recedes. Carbonation bubbles steadily and slowly rise to the top. Hazy, opaque appearance. Very good looking IIPA.

Smell: Massive, fresh hop aromas just bursting out of the glass. Lots of citrus characteristics (grapefruit and orange rind, lemon/lime), very dank hop aromas, some subtle pine notes, a little bit of an earthy onion/garlic quality. A bit of sweet breadiness as well. Picking up some sweeter and tropical fruits also (pineapple, peach, strawberry). Just an excellent, fresh smelling beer.

Taste: Strong bitterness at the front of the tongue which takes on a strong citrus, grapefruit flavor. This morphs into some of the sweeter fruit (pineapple, peach, apricot, a bit of strawberry) tastes and malty breadiness. Finishes with some more bitterness as the flavors become more earthy, more of the pine, onion/garlic tastes come out on the back of the tongue.

Mouthfeel: Great feel to this one. Medium, resinous body to this one, almost an oily consistency rolls smoothly through the mouth and over the tongue. Leaves a tingly sensation over the tongue as it finishes dry, making you want to wring the hop flavors out of your tongue.

Overall: The Enjoy By concept is a very appealing idea as super fresh IPAs aren't always easy to find, but this does make them available for a known, limited time (depending on the markets to which its distributed). However when it does make its way around, it's quite easy to find and priced about reasonably at around $6.99 per bottle (in this area at least). This beer is really quite a treat and highly recommended to try.

Enjoy by 12.21.12 enjoyed on 12.03.12
Poured into a snifter.

Nice gold with 1-2 fingers of fluffy white head that dissipates quickly. Excellent clarity and very low carbonation.

This smells ridiculously good! Pineapple juice, papaya, mango, tangerine, lemon juice and candy sugar.

Luckily all that tropical fruit is still accounted for. Pineapple juice, papaya and mango along with lemon juice and navel orange. A touch of booze quickly follows. Candy sugars and a thin layer of drizzle caramel. A light breadiness. It gets a little more resinous towards the finish with pine sap and florals as well as some grapefruit zest and tangerine.

Medium-full bodied, juicy, warming, crisp, dry and surprisingly clean.

This is easily one of the best Stone beers that I've had. Definitely better than the Ruination 10th Anniversary. Leaps and bounds beyond Lukcy 13asardt. Very tropical and balanced. This does not shred your taste buds like all that other garbage that they put out. Some booze is apparent but it's worth it. Seek this one out.

batch 5- Enjoy by 4/1/13. What a delightful beer- I really love the whole idea of the lengths they've gone to encourage freshness in an IPA. Nothing like a fresh IPA! Wonderful delicate floral aroma with some citrus blossom and a touch of floral honey. The taste is beautifully balanced with citrus, floral, herbal, and a touch of pine in the finish. Vibrant and fresh tasting with just enough sweetness to keep things zippy. A touch soft, but just a great beer all around.

A: Very rich golden orange with a full and thick creamy head. It screams freshness.

S: Smells very refreshing. There is still a strong pine smell pairing with citrus.

T: Very fresh. I taste more pine than citrus. Leaves a nice bitter hop taste that lingers long after, reminding you it's time for another sip. Ever so slight taste of alcohol.

M: It has bite. Again, that slight alcohol taste is there and I can definitely feel it hitting the back of my palate.

O: The beer guru at the Woodbridge, VA Wegmans recommended this and I'm not disappointed. Very fresh, very tasty. I drank the 4.20.14 on 3.22.14. They were near out. Pick it up if you can.

Enjoy By 7/4/15

There is so much discussion regarding inconsistency from batch to batch and the mysterious onion taste. I have had every batch in Delaware distro for past three years. IMO - the past 12 months have been incredibly consistent. A juicy citrus has complemented the (devastating) dank more recently in both bouquet and taste. Mouthfeel and appearance has always been off the charts. Drinkability is amazing. 3 years ago I assumed a great marketing approach led to over-inflated scores. But this is without doubt one of the best IIPA’s out there.

A- Pours a bright crystal clear golden amber color with a nice white head. Head has ok retention and leaves a bit of spotty lacing.

S- Smell is resine, tons of tropical fruits and a bit of hemp smell.

T- Taste is great. Quite a bit of tropical fruits, pine, grass, and spice. A tiny caramel malt backbone that is hardly noticeable.

M- Medium in both body and carbonation.

O- I really enjoyed this brew for sure. I hope it keeps coming. Outstanding job and very easy to drink.

Batch: 5.17.13

Picked up a 22oz bomber and paired it with a piece of blue cheese jalapeno cheesecake from the new Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens at Liberty Station in Point Loma.

Pours a slight amber/straw-like hue with a fluffy white head that lingers, giving way to a good amount of lacing. Distinct yeast smell right off the bat, followed up with the expected hop bomb aroma - dried grass, grapefruit rind, earthy and herbal. Taste is similar to the nose but even greater amounts of white grapefruit and black peppercorn that seamlessly lead into a sweet grainy, lightly boozy (not in a bad way) finish. On the lighter side of medium bodied (how one does this with a Double IPA clocking in at 9.4% ABV is beyond me ???). Carbonation is light, the finish is clean and smooth. Insanely well done IIPA - once again proving that Stone is the king of hoppy beers!

Enjoy by 02.14.14 IPA is a prisitine clear orange liquid topped with foamy light brown head that leave behind a nice foaming coating on the glass. The excellent appearance gives way to a strong sweet apricot hoppy nose that is simply delicious. On the tongue is it presents a strong hoppy bite. Behind that lies a fruity citrus that gives way to a wonderfully balanced lingering hop. In the mouth this beer is smooth, refreshing, clean and crisp. Quite simply this is a fantastic IPA. Certainly worth a night for the IPA lover. I don't advise is for a new drinker or non IPA person.

T - fruity unique taste, probably not used to fresh beer...
F - kinda gritty at the end (in a good way)
O - I think being fresh helps, a lot of the little tastes disappear quickly. Date was 10-31-15. Got better as it warmed. Can't stress enough to drink at the right temp.

Enjoy By 04.20.14; bottled on 3/16/14, poured into a Stone IPA pint glass.
Appearance - clear, golden, bubbly; looks like apple juice. Thick, foamy white head. Lacing is decent.
Smell - mouth watering citrus hops; lots of grapefruit juice, with just a hint of herb!
Taste - mild, bitter hops up front; tangy fruit juice and grapefruit to finish it off!
Feel - a very aggressive, but tasty and easy to drink hop bomb!
Overall - worth the hype, a great DIPA.

Growler from the brewey for $15...Nelson on steroids! If you appreciate both Alpines Nelson and Stones Ruination then you will love this crazy beer. Never thought Stone would brew this but they continue to amaze me. Tastes like a small batch brew, but from a big ol' brewey. Keepin' it real....Amazing beer, buy it if you can get it before 9/21/12!

Amazing IPA. Extremely fresh and full of citrus hops. As fresh as you can get out a bottle. Initial taste is full of fresh grapefruit, pineapple, and a bit of orange hops. Carbonation is absolutely perfect. The beer is so fresh tasting that it gives you quenching like taste.

Enjoy By 02.14.14

A: Super clear light golden-amber appearance. Poured into a frozen glass with 3/4 finger of off-white head, small sized bubbles. Bubbles dissipated down to a thin film around the edge of the glass pretty quickly, which could be due to the temperature of the glass. Bubbles left just a trace of lacing on the cold glass.

S: I'm a bit stuffed up today, but I can detect hints of floral and some danky hops. This is about the best I can do with one functional nostril.

T: Lots of good stuff here. Less sweetness on the start compared to other Enjoy Bys. Subtle pine flavors, less hoppy than others. Tastes similar to the other Enjoy Bys, but more mellow (which is probably because I'm a little late to drink this one.) I found the other Enjoy Bys to be a little bit of a caricature of IPAs, so I appreciate the mellowness. 9.4% ABV, but it does have a mild alcohol dryness.

M: Medium+ body and tongue stickiness. A little bit oily, but not fatiguing. Carbonation is great, as always with Stone.

O: I'm a little late to drink this one, and consequently its a little bit mellower than the other Enjoy Bys. I think this is a good thing, but lovers of the other Enjoy Bys exaggerated style may find it a bit lacking.

Enjoy By 11.12.13

A: Very clear dark-straw/golden color that pours with a good finger/finger and a half of very small off-white head. Color and clarity is great here; I wish my homebrews looked anything like this. Good head retention in a chilled glass that left nice lacing.

S: Smells like an IPA. Sweet/floral start with nice hints of bready malts. No significant hops here.

T: Pretty close to its smell, but with a few more subtleties. Semi-sweet start (maybe dragon or stone fruit; can't really put my finger on it.) Less malty mid-taste than it smells, though the smell wasn't the strongest to begin with. It finishes with enough mild hop-bitterness to be a west coast IPA, but doesn't feel like a boxing match with your tongue. It's a bit softer than the usual Stone "over-the-top" style, but it makes for a great IPA. No taste of booze at 9.4% abv, which could be a little bit dangerous; the less exaggerated tastes means I could seeing drinking more than one of these.

M: Medium/medium- body, with a slightly quicker flow down the throat. Carbonation is great, as with all stone brews. Very appropriate for a single IPA.

O: A great all-around IPA brew; easy drinking and great tasting, just be a bit conscientious of the abv. Guaranteed to take you from sober to "life is fun" in no time flat :) (Funny to read my previous review; this is definitely not the same beer. No hints of pine at all in this, and a less exaggerated taste.)

Enjoy By 07.04.13

A: Pours extremely clear mid-to-dark amber color, with 2-2.5 fingers of fluffy eggshell white head of very small bubbles. The head retains decently before turning into a solid film of micro bubbles. Lacing is medium+.

S: VERY fresh piney hop smell. Maybe some minor notes of semi-sweet fruits (grapefruit, stone fruit) but it's dominated by its piney, resiny hops.

T: More balanced than it smells. It's a bit lighter taste all the way through. It starts with a sweet/sour grapefruit-like beginning, before moving on to a light, biscuity malt flavor. Piney hops are present through both the start and the malty flavors. It finishes with the mild/mild+ hop bitterness you'd expect from a DIPA. She packs a punch at 9.4% abv, though it does finish a bit dry and boozy.

M: Medium- to medium body for an DIPA. A good bit quicker and slicker than most DIPAs; it feels closer to an IPA. Carbonation is great; no complaints.

O: Tastes like Stone's interpretation of a by-the-book IPA (which means they said "let's make it a double.") Imagine that Stone had a Pliny the Elder recipe in their hands and said "let's do this, but let's do it our way." It is a very well balanced brew that doesn't rely on extreme hops to define itself. It's a little different for Stone, and I'm glad I had it.

A: Tangerine.

S: Pine, marijuana, apricot, and jasmine.

T: A wave of aggressive bitterness that we've all come to expect from Stone. After that comes a heavy dose of sweetness, tropical fruit, and flowers. It tastes thick and pungent, like nectar. Mangoes and jasmine. It's almost overwhelming. Then the bitterness and astringency returns to leave you yearning for another sip.

M: From nectar to a drying finish.

O: Solid. I had prepared myself to be disappointed given the hype but this is definitely worthy of the praise.

Served from bottle into pint glass.

I tasted this at work today, so I should have reviewed this first while it is still somewhat fresh in my mind.

A- An inviting golden tone to it, nice head cap and very decent lacing.

S- I always enjoy the smell of Stones! Something about that Escondido water! This was a very gripping piney/grassy scent with a nice citrus backbone... Grapefruit peels scream out to ya when you are nose deep in this and that citrus hop kick just makes you want to bury yourself in this outstanding DIPA.

T- Again the grapefruit peel, a lick of mandarin and very grassy/piny taste to it. A semi-dark malty flavor grabs ya in the beginning and drops you in the end, the taste is magnificent and hangs around leaving you wanting more, more and more. The bitterness is perfect. I can't describe it any other way since I am lacking the proper vocabulary to how content this beer left me.

MF- Nice medium body, great carbonation and wet to the lips then dry to the finish feel. You can really dig into this one. Scrumptious!

O- Stone never disappoints me. We have been selling out at work and have been very limited on this beer. I am very lucky and consider myself fortunate to try this fine crafted ale. GET YOUR HANDS ON IT IMMEDIATELY if you can. Price shouldn't be an issue here, just try it, you will not be disappointed.

Served up in an elysian goblet - bright clear-orange body, fresh white foam. An extraordinarily clean hop profile with low residual bitterness - bright and fresh with an abundance of mango, tangerine, blood orange and lemon zest. Awesome stuff.

This is an impressive brew. Golden orange liquid topped by a clean white head that is large and slow to leave. When it does it leaves quite a bit of evidence of its presence. Nose has an abundance of tropical fruits and light sweet malty goodness. The two pair to create an olfactory delight . Taste builds from there. Hops hops everywhere and just enough malt to ride. While big and pervasive they are not a grapefruit bomb. Multilayered and multifaceted they display an attention to the smallest detail. The tropical side is dominant when colder with the lovely citrus showing its yellow skinned dry and puckering edge as it warms. In all cases the abv is a "Say What?". You can pound this brew and not know it until you wake up on the floor. Feel is medium heavy with a full creamy carbonation the enhances the overall quenching quality. It just drinks like a session ale. A superb beer in all aspects. I love the attention to the hop construct that drives a brewers vision to create something like this.

A: Great light yellow orange color with good clarity. Really nice white head with amazing lacing and good long retention that sticks to the glass
S:Great smell with a lot of citrus followed by some piney hops with a slight malt
T: One of the best. A hop bomb of nice citrus,piney flavors but with a slight malt background to balance the bitter. My favorite part of this beer is the delicious aftertaste that you can taste for quite some time. This beer is really easy to drink and impressive with its high abv.
M: This beers only downside with slighty to much carbonation and a sticky feel.

Edit: just had the 7/4/14 edition and was like a completely different beer not very good and a much more harsh taste

ReReview of the 12/26/14 edition. One of my favorite ipas ive ever had delicious hoppy, citrusy, fresh taste with some amazing aftertaste and very easy to drink. Hard to describe the dank taste you get.

Serving type: 22 0z bottle.

First off I want to say that I haven't been a big fan of IPA's and have just recently started tasting them due to my experience and taste maturing. I had a few from the LIberty Tap Rooms in Columbia and Myrtle Beach, SC as well as from the Sunoco gas station in Georgetown, Sc (who has a few micro brews (Rogue, RJ Rockers, and those frog themed guys out of Georgia as well as Chimay in stock all the time) and my go to store Pawley's Island Wine & Spirits. I give big kudo's to PIW&S for turning me on to this one.

Appearance: a clear slightly orange straw color with a big white rocky head that fairly quickly dissipated leaving beautiful lacing down my Duvel glass.

Smell: Strong Pine and Moderate Grapefruit

Taste: Similar to the smell, slightly hoppy with strong pine, more grapefruit and a little grassy fruity taste. Damn it was smooth. My favorite to date. Drink it not to long after it poors as for me it mellowed too much with time.

Mouthfeel: Extremely smooth for an IPA. Slightly oily, not to bitter as most IPA's are for me and it finished rather quickly but left a very slight bitterness but mostly pine/grapefruit aftertaste. It made me want to take another taste fairly quickly.

Overall: The ABV in this hidden well and it will bite you in the ass if you aren't careful. To date this is the best IPA I have ever had the pleasure of drinking, providing you don't let it warm too much. I will go back to Stone for this line again if they continue it.
