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.

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

22 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass and consumed on August 31st, 2013.

A- Poured a mostly transparent, copper color with a fluffy off-white head with good retention, and small lively carbonation. Nice lacing, but how much does that really matter?

S- Very hop forward with all sorts of fruity and citrus hop aromas. Tropical fruits, pineapple, leafy herbal hops. A bit of toasty grains and boozy aromas too as it warms. Definitely, some pine in there too.

T- Like sucking on a fresh, wet hop. Bitter on the tips of the tongue all the way through to the bitter finish, but there is enough fruity, hoppy flavor to go along with the bitterness to make for an “enjoyable” experience. The alcohol adds a pleasant flavor and warming finish, but doesn't get in the way of the hoppiness. There seems to be just enough of a malt backbone to keep this beer honest and complement the juicy hops.

M- Full bodied mouthfeel, slick and resinous, but not sticky which could be partly due to the carbonation doing its job. A bitterness hits the back of the palate and throat on the finish; and, along with the retro-olfaction, leaves an herbal, hoppy sensation that lingers.

O- Everything about this double IPA is intense, distinct, and full flavored. The amount of concentrated hop aromas, flavors, and acids that are packed into this beer is quite impressive. Yet it isn't so domineering, because I wish I had another bottle to drink right now. However, I think this beer is making me realize that I'm not a huge fan of double IPA's at this point in my drinking career, which is reflected in my overall score of only 4. With that being said, I can certainly still appreciate the skilled craftsmanship involved in the creation of this fine brew. (1,742 characters)

These bottles all explode horrifically at midnight on their expiry date, Silver Shamrock style.

Not being a fan of having my face devoured by lasers and then eaten by worms, I took the smart route and decided to crack this fucker open right away.

Smells like a fresh, strong IPA with big nodes of flowers and pines. Tastes equally fresh and hoppily strong, but the flavor is tame and a near total lack of burn belays its elevated ABV. Lots of double IPAs attempt to back up intense hops with thick, syrupy malt. Other, better doubles balance out the hops with sweeter malts and interesting yeast complexities. Here, the hops don't get too out of hand, but they're still lush and variegated enough to balance themselves, making it so all the malt needs to do is provide a decent bready backend. and that's what this one does, gorgeously. (838 characters)

22 oz bottle pours a stunningly clear gold color with a fluffy, dense white head. Retention is great and lacing exceptional. This is an absolute stunner as far as appearance is concerned, wow.

Nose is plenty hoppy, citric and tropical with some alcohol and biscuit malt bordering on toffee. Smells good...

Taste is hops, both leafy and fresh and bittering aftertaste. Juicy without being overly resinous and tastes like wet hops to me. The malt is light and pretty much gets the fuck out of the way and the alcohol is very well integrated. This is an outstanding beer...not going to compete with the best of DIPAs...but right there at the top of the second tier. (668 characters)

Best by 04/01/2013 (obviously). 22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a clear and bright golden orange with a small, fluffy white head. The head disappears very quickly and leaves a small soap-like ring of foam on the glass. The lacing is just ok but it matches the head as light rings of foam are left on the glass.

The hop profile in the nose is massive. Huge citrus and tropical fruits (grapefruit, mango and maybe some pineapple) give way to even bigger notes of resin and pine. There is a touch of malt sweetness but the hops dominate and it doesn't come through enough to pinpoint exactly what type it is.

The taste follows the nose but it's both bolder and more balanced. The fruity notes from the hops lead the way again and they are juicy, citrusy and tropical. The malt shows itself a bit more as well. It's still sweet as it was in the nose but it brings a nice breadiness with it as well. The citrus hops and sweet malt balance nicely in each sip before giving way to the piny, resiny finish. Despite the huge resin notes in the nose and the big pine notes in the finish the bitterness is remarkably restrained.

This beer drinks much lighter than a 9.4% ABV double IPA. The mouthfeel is very crisp and extremely clean. The carbonation is lively but soft. A lot of time lively carbonation brings a prickly sensation with it and it can be somewhat harsh with this much going on in the hop department. That's not the case here as the carbonation is spot on.

This is an excellent beer overall and a top tier DIPA. It's extremely hop forward with enough malt to make it relatively balanced. Definitely a beer I'd like to see much more often, if not regularly. (1,682 characters)

22oz bottle. freshness is apparant with this one.

look is a light golden yellow-orange, clear, with a wonderful pillowey head. smell is piney, musty, "green" smelling, with a kick of citrus at the end. malt and grain taste musty, with a honey-like sweetness. hops are a little flat - crushingly bitter musty pine, with a lemon pledge kick. (340 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

pours a nice deep golden orange that is slightly opaque.
Smell is classic stone. Piney, hoppy and crisp.
The head is think but laces beautifully down the glass.
Nice strong hops up front. Pine, citrus, peachy maybe a little pineapple. Very slight malt presence, very effervescent and slight resinous as you swallow. Strongly bitter after taste/ as it goes down.
Overall a terrific expansion on what Stone normally does with their regular IPA and definitely has a slightly more diverse bouquet. I would prefer a little less bitterness and maybe a little more balance, but overall this is quite the terrific DIPA. Stone rarely disappoints and they sure as hell don't with this one. (681 characters)

11.12.13
Bright orange/gold colour with a sticky, dense, eggshell cap. Good head retention and lasting lacing. Crazy hop aroma. Tons of grapefruit and orange, juicy, slightly tropical, bright and fresh. Nicely balanced flavour too. Lots of bitterness, sweetness, citrus, and alcohol. Lingering bitterness, earthy and citrus, with mild alcohol spiciness and some higher alcohol character. Mild warmth, medium plus body with smooth carbonation, excellent texture. This was really good -- balanced, bold and fresh. (511 characters)

(Enjoy by 2/14/15) 22oz bottle poured into Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours a clear golden color (lighter than I would have expected), two finger head, noticeable carbonation bubbles. Resilient lacing. Inviting classic citrus IPA scent. Crisp, medium-bodied feel with a little bite from the carbonation. Wonderful hoppy taste but not overly bitter, has some malt backbone that gives some balance. But still very hop-centric. Overall, fantastic. (9.5) (445 characters)

Bottle purchased from Fleming Place in Topeka, KS. Bottle on 08/?/13. Enjoy by 9/13/13. Enjoyed out of a Tallgrass cervoise glass. Poured straight from the fridge.

Appearance: 2 fingers of tight, off white head from a gentle pour. Nice honey colored body and lacing.

Smell: A wonderful waterfall of hop cones. Green pine needles, floral citrus, pineapple and orange peel (like smelling a lemon or an orange before you eat it). Also a bit of green grass in the end. It's like smelling a handful of hop cones. A bit of sweet booze pops up.

Taste: Bright citrus fruits. Lemon zest and orange peel. A bitter pinyness and some grass. A sweet, sturdy malt backbone. Some biscuity malt. Finishes with a bitter herbalness. You can feel the ABV but it's not offensive.

Mouthfeel: Lower carbonation with a medium to full mouthfeel. A substantial beer though one I feel like taking gulps of. Very warming and sweet.

Overall: I just love the nose on this! Worth it just for that. The ABV is never too much and just comes off as sweet and mingles with the malt. Worth the $8 or so dollars. Stone just keeps bringing out the fun beers and I am so glad they're now in KS. One worthy of the hype!
Sipped on and contemplated while enjoying some aged Cheddar and Cryptopsy's None So Vile. (1,280 characters)

04.01.13

A: Clear copper with off-white head. Good retention.

S: Big on the pine, resin and flower hops. Mango, pineapple and a bit of grapefruit. A bit of caramel hidden behind all the hops. Boozy.

T: Much like the nose: Big on the pine and flowery hops. Pineapple, mango, and tangerines. Aftertaste is citrus peels (tangerines and grapefruit). Big, aggressive, and assertive.

M: Medium-full bodied, fine carbonation, and a bit dry. Coats the whole mouth with a bitter hoppiness.

O: Big hop bomb, exactly what I was expecting from stone. A bit unbalanced and a bit boozy but is played off well. If you're a fan of DIPAs, give this a shot. (646 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours with one finger of white foam on top of a clear, golden body. The head fades slowly and leaves nice lace.

S - Pungent, fruity, fresh hops. Yeah.

T - Sweet malt and lots of hop character up front. Tropical fruit and pine hop character in the middle and through the finish with modately strong bitterness,

M - Medium body, modately carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - Very nice, lots and lots of hop character in the aroma, the flavor is nice as well, but doesn't quite live up to the aroma. If there is any room for improvement it is that it is a touch too dry. (574 characters)

I've had a few versions of this brew, but tonight I had the 9-13-13 version twice on tap at the Global Brew Tap Room in O'Fallon, IL. Served in a Boulevard tulip both times. Clear body, dark yellow with slight orange tint. About a one-finger head and decent lacing along the glass.

Nice aroma that starts with a strong note of citrus hops that trend toward a light pine cone aroma. A light, sweet, caramel malt to finish.

The flavor is similar to the aroma, but the hop blend is superb. Citrus, pine, light tropical notes, and just enough bitterness to have a decent bite. The hop/malt blend is nearly perfect for a DIPA - just enough sweet malt balance to the hops.

Medium thickness in the mouthfeel, with very little notice of the alcohol. This might be the best Stone beer I've ever had. RuinTen is close, but both are exceptional DIPAs. (844 characters)

Originally reviewed on 6/15/13. Despite the modest review, I kept coming back to this beer. Now that it's back in my neck of the woods, I'm ready to try it again.

A: Light brassy orange. Transparent. One finger khaki head. Retention is decent for the high abv's. Lacing is stellar.

S: Boom. Drinking a three day old IPA does something for the nose, that's for sure. Huge burst of tropical sweetness coming from the nose. Pineapple, mango. Bit of that weird onion/garlic scent. (New to me, but since it was pointed out I've been noticing it more). Level of dankness. Grapefruit pith. Sweet breadiness off the malt. Touch prickly in the sinus cavity. Fairly complex, but insanely powerful aromatics.

T: Bready sweetness up front. Transitions into the same tropical fruitiness mid palate. Combine this with a large rush of Ruby Red grapefruit and orange. Back is prickly pepper notes, with shots of pear skin and apple. Aftertaste is fairly resinous bitterness, with notes of spearmint and spruce needle. Alcohol warmth comes through in the finish, kicking up the spicy/peppery notes for one last hoorah in the aftertaste.

M: A tad slick from the alcohol. Medium bodied, with a subdued carbonation that allows the incredibly powerful flavors to really coat the tongue.

O: It's greater than the sum of its parts, really. Glad I picked it up again and I will continue to pick it up when it's available. Superb beer. (1,420 characters)

The look: clear, crisp, golden-hued, active carbonation, enormous head, pillowy white, lace-leaving and lovely. Very nice looking brew.

The aroma: oily hop resins, prickly pine, lemon zest, orange peel, plenty of bitterness, but not too much so.

The taste of it: Intense bitterness grips the palate, buzzes the tongue, leaves little bombs of sweetness at variable intervals. With each new sip and swallow, a repeat of the pass, gripping bitterness, attacking the tongue, swabbed by sweet, ending dryly, reading for the next round. Medium bodied, long hoppiness…and the high alcohol doesn't get you until you're, wait, where are we now? About 3/4 into the bottle. Yep, it's creeping up…

This lands somewhere between the regular Stone IPA, which I love, and Ruination. Not quite as ruining. I would appreciate it more dialed down a notch or two, though. Maybe 7.5% would make it more enjoyable by.

Here's some gobbledygook from the label: "You have in your hands a devastatingly fresh double IPA. Freshness is a key component in many beers, especially big, hoppy IPAs--but we've taken it further, a lot further, with this one. We brewed this IPA specifically not to last. We've gone to extensive lengths to to ensure you get your hands on this beer within an extraordinarily short window, and we've sent a very clear message in the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than NOW to enjoy this IPA."

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

Pours a clear, soft orange color, with a 2 finger of white head. Left lots of lace.

The aroma is Floral and fruity, citrus and tropical fruits. Some mango and pineapple. Not much in the way of malts, but that's probably intentional.

Lots of tropical fruits, pineapple, orange, lemon zest, slight bready malts, touches of pine too.

The feel is upper medium, slightly crisp with a good, not-overbearing feel to it.

I'd say this is a super successful IPA. I love the premise and assurance that you will be getting awesomeness. Bravo (536 characters)

Lolz. Wow... get off dis. I mean, really - get off dis! Raul drove all around OC to finally secure this? Oh my. It's not like Raul expected God, but he at least expected a kiss of heaven. What a let down. I mean, like when this hoochie was all over me last night, yet when the main man was ready to go home, she was too "tired" to come over. Yeah, that kind of let down.

Raul doez not approve!

Raul wasn't exactly feeling his first Enjoy By, but he is feeling it now. On all levels, like Megan Fox on an elliptical, Raul is feeling this. (542 characters)

07.04.15 12oz bottle into a solo cup. 3rd Enjoy By release to pass my lips.

A: Nothing too special. Vibrant clear gold with 1/2" of off-white head that recedes pretty quickly.

S: Amazing, breathtaking. Huge grapefruit & citrus with a nice oily hop character underneath. A bit of biscuit & malty sweetness provide counterpoint, but the fruit is the star of the show.

T: Grapefruit, lemon & lime peel, cinnamon, brown sugar, pine, black pepper, grass, hop resin, exceptionally well-defined bitterness that seems to focus on woodiness & a hint of onion. Holy moly.

M: Moderate carb & a big malt body do the job perfectly.

O: My only complaint is that this brew is just too drinkable. (695 characters)

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had an amber color and a clear consistency. There was an inch of foamy, long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A big, enticing aroma of hops, pine, and a lot of citrus.

T: Tasted of hops, a good amount of alcohol, citrus (grapefruit especially), malt, and a bit of pine as well. As it is with all good DIPAs, this one has a very complex flavor. Extremely powerful and tasty.

M: A highly carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Another tasty brew from Stone. Well made, focused, and definitely drinkable. (561 characters)

Had this on 4/27, so as would be expected, the hop flavor was starting to head for the background. This brought forward a sweetness that was indeed "devastatingly dank". I'm not sure if it was the fact that I enjoyed "after" or just the beer itself, but this was a more than commendable addition to the Enjoy By series. (322 characters)

Pours pale clear orange with scant head. Stays as a ring. No lace. April 2013 version

Big grapefruit aroma, even with your nose away from the glass. Nice toasted malt notes as well.

Toasted malt, alcohol, big citric hop notes. A very bright beer. As the flavors clear on the palate, you get a bit of an alcoholic burn on the tongue. Nice balance of hop and malt on the finish. Some pucker and astringency.

Medium to fuller bodied. Funny, a little hot. As much as you want this one fresh, I wonder if another month or 2 would calm this down.

Overall, really nice beer. Brilliant marketing, even if it puts pressure on your favorite liquor store to push this beer before it obviously past prime. (697 characters)

Had this again on 2014-01-18 in Columbia, PA. The rating numbers are a blended average of all my tastings but it is to be noted this Enjoy by 02.14.14 is the best one yet.

A - Very clear golden orange with a 1.0-finger white head that fades to a 1/2-finger and leaves a good amount of lacing.

S - Mildly dank, pineapple, pine, hop floral. Pleasant. About the same aroma strength as the 10.25.13 release,

T - Hop forward, dank, ripe pineapple and stone fruit, some orange, white pepper, onion/garlic (more that I care for), moderating fruit-malt sweetness. Alcohol is present in the background and nicely complimentary. Finish includes spicy and bitter hop flavors with moderating malt and alcohol sweetness. .

M - Medium body and light-medium combination. Luscious, firm, viscous, resinous, prickly, clings.

O - Best one yet. Glad this particular one made it to Pennsylvania.

2013-10-21 in Columbia, PA. This is the 10.25.13 release.

A - Mostly clear golden orange with a 1.5-finger white head that fades quickly to a 1/2-finger and leaves a mild amount of lacing.

S - Pretty dank, pineapple, peach, hop floral. Less aroma strength than the 7.04.13 release but still very pleasant.

T - Rich pineapple and stone fruit, some orange, nice dank and spicy/peppery hop presence, onion/garlic (about like Deviant Dale's), moderating pale malt sweetness. Less pine than the 7.04.13 release but still evident. Alcohol is present in the background and nicely complimentary. Finish is a fine balance of tangy/spicy hop flavors and bitterness with moderating sweetness. Good balance.

M - Medium body and light-medium combination. Luscious, firm, viscous, resinous, prickly, clings.

O - I really enjoy this series and observing the similarities and differences from one to the next. This is a good one, for sure!

Had this on 2013-07-01 in Columbia, PA. This is the 07.04.13 release. Special thanks to Matador677.

A - Mostly clear golden orange with a 1-finger white head that fades quickly to a skim and leaves a small amount of lacing. Not surprising for the high ABV.

S - Moderately dank, naval orange, peach, hop floral, honeysuckle. Very inviting.

T - Smooth. Ripe stone fruit, plenty of luscious orange flesh, grapefruit zest, then a mild flavor of lightly toasted bread, pepper, and alcohol sweetness. Finish is a great balance of complex fruit sweetness, pine and a commanding but not overpowering bitterness. Very little bready-malt in view.

M - Medium body and light-medium combination. Luscious, firm, viscous, resinous, prickly, clings.

O - A really top-notch DIPA. So inviting sip-after-sip. Please sir, may I have another? (2,677 characters)

Enjoy By: 2-14-14

A- Crystal clear light amber color. Only about a 1/2 finger of head that didn't hang around very long. Pretty good lacing.

S- Big tropical fruit, orange and sweet grapefruit up front. Subtle pine when you really dig in. Incredibly inviting.

T- Quick burst of tropical fruit and grapefruit up front that is almost immediately overtaken by big pine and hop bitterness. Nice malt backbone. Despite the big bitterness, the aftertaste barely lingers at all.

M- Medium body with nice crisp carbonation. Slightly oily.

O- As usual, an extremely well crafted beer by Stone. The aroma was an incredible blast of sweet citrus that didn't hint, in the least, the hop bitterness that was about to punch you in the face. Very nice. (745 characters)

Picked up a bomber at Tacoma Boys in Puyallup, WA. Enjoyed on 18 Jan 13.

A: Clear dark gold color with a two finger head and lots of carbonation bubbles.

S: Very dank hops, herbal, grassy, floral. Wonderful aroma and fresh scent.

T: Very much a hopbomb through and through with the piney and floral flavors coming out the most. Light pale malt backbone and then aggressive pine hop finish.

M: Smooth and drinkable, bitter hop bite finish.

O: A very cool idea and lived up to the freshness guarantee. Still better IPAs and DIPAs that I can get on a more regular basis. (577 characters)

Batch 4. 2/15/12 Enjoy By. Had this on tap initially in 12oz glass than had it in bottle poured in a snifter. Taste really good on tap, really smooth, a bit hoppy but had a good balance. For 9.4% it was really tasty. In bottle, same result, its pretty damn good and worth the hype in my opinion. Really fresh beer and so far my favorite stone beer.
Try this blitch.
