 http://www.stonebrewing.com/enjoyby/ 

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.

This is the benchmark for all IPAs in my opinion. It has everything going for it: dank hops, sweet malt, great mouth feel, and 9.4% ABV. What more could you possibly want from an IPA?

A wonderful hop/resin taste. The taste is a piney malty taste; when really it is a heavy IPA. Well done.

Great hop flavors of citrus, pine and a touch of resin. Just a hint of sweetness but not enough to interfere with the hops. A touch of stone fruit. Lingering bitterness, appropriate for the style.

Seriously good.. Sweet, piney, fresh. Alcohol is so well hidden. It's a damn good IPA. Great work Stone!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass.

LOOK: Clear gold with a finger of eggshell white head, that leaves rings of lacing.

SMELL: Holy hops! Super dank, juicy, and tropical. Grapefruit, apricot, peach, pineapple, earth, grass, onion, pine, and resin.

Taste: Super complex and tasty. Follows the nose for the most part. Tastes of a mix of citrus and tropical fruits--grapefruit, orange, apricot, peach, pineapple, papaya, passionfruit, guava, and mango. Takes a sharp turn for acidic, oniony bitterness on the finish, but then smooths out nicely leaving a citrus-pine aftertaste in your mouth. Alcohol is present but barely noticeable for 9.4% abv.

FEEL: Medium-feel, crisp carbonation, with a long resinous finish.

OVERALL: Ridiculously good double IPA. Buy it fresh whenever you're able!

Enjoy By 7.4.15 - This poured a slightly translucent copper colour with a finger thick white head that dissipated into small islands fairly quickly. The nose obviously screams hops with a earthy pine taking the lead, followed by floral and citrus notes. There is some caramel malt around the edges trying to fight it's way though with minimal success. Now on the taste those malts do come forward but are still surrounded by pine resin and citrus fruits and finished with a even bitterness. The mouthfeel is nice and makes the beer quite refreshing. Looking forward to having this again.

Bomber of 7/4/15

Poured into a pint glass

Smell is citrus and floral hops with pine and Carmel malts.

Taste follows exactly. Very bitter and hop forward. The 7/4/15 is a great rendition of enjoy by! Smooth and crisp with no boozyness!

The enjoy by by Stone is solid. However.... my biggest complaint with this highly- distributed beer is that it taste totally different on tap than in a bomber. When the experience is that different between a bottle and bar... I'll take my $$$ somewhere else. If you see it on tap... go for it...! On the shelf... knock it off the list... but I could put that $8-$10 to so much better use...!

Enjoy By 07/04/15. This is a complex IPA. Large gulps taste of caramel and oranges with a floral hint. Smaller, contemplative, sips reveal a resinous bitterness.

To be clear this is for 7.04.15.

I thought it was great, really piney and hoppy, didn't taste the high abv much. Really good.

Citrusy and floral hops. Sweet beer and surprisingly light for a 9.4% beer. This can be enjoyed all year. Dear God this beer is so damn good. Wish I could get a case of it.

Very, very good beer. Not a huge IPA guy & I'm totally into this. Extremely smooth & slightly fruity. My favorite IPA so far.

A bit too sweet and syrupy for my taste. Booze is very very well hidden per usual with the enjoy by series.

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

A: Clear burnt orange, pretty. Still- no carbonation. White head, moderate lacing.

S: Juicy, ripe fruit, background of bitterness, some pine.

T: Wonderful smorgasbord of fruits. Orange, lemon, passionfruit, a lot of other stuff. Sweet malt, just an undertone, almost like honey or caramel. Mint/pine on the finish. Nice and juicy.

M: Light-medium body. Light prickle of carbonation.

O: My kind of IPA- lots of fruit, bitter but not cloying, highly drinkable but with high ABV. This is not just palatable, but enjoyable- is Stone relenting on the hardass destructive IPA styling? Or am I a hardass now??
