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.

One of my all time favorite Double IPAs! The first batch I bought was 04.20.14 and I absolutely loved it. Currently, I am drinking the 07.04.14 for this review. It pours wonderfully with a light bronze color and thick foamy head. My first inhale hit me with a dank citrus, pine scent with undertones of an earthy, fruity base. The beer itself is smooth and round with a crisp bite of citrus. Its fresh, bold and I love it!

What can I say, Enjoy by .... lives up to the hype/rating.

I've had a few 4.20.14's and a few 7.04.14's.

These are indeed world-class ales! You can tell just by the lacing that this is something special.

9.4% ABV. <--- That can't be right! I want to drink this all day- dammit!

I would have given it 5/5 for every category, but I'm not sure that my palate is refined enough to qualify me to do so.

So refreshing!
So tasty!
Devastatingly dank!!!

This is one of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production.

(On the 7/4/14 batch, there is more citrus and less of that onion/garlic action. Definitely one of the finer batches of this beer. Extremely clean and easy drinking.)

Review of 2/14/14. The beer comes in an extremely crystal clear dark golden amber with a fluffy white head.

The aroma tons of fresh tropical and citrus. Sweet pineapple, mango, peach, orange peel. The second layer hits of pine, resin, and a raw garlic/onion.

The taste is so juicy of hops. Again with the sweet pineapple, peach, mango, grapefruit peel. There's a medium bready malt that hits in the front and gives a big caramel sweetness and then disappears for the finish. Alcohol slightly comes through on the end.

The finish attacks of pine, resin, and raw onion. It almost twists your tongue from the fruity flavors, but your palate acclimates. It's very dry, slightly bitter.

In the end, a fantastic DIPA, but those "tongue turning" flavors are a bit of a detractor. Still a fresh hoppy well crafted brew.

Another winner from Stone. I poured this one (22 oz bottle) into a wine glass and let it warm to bring out the flavors. While I enjoy other IIPAs a bit more (e.g., Hopslam and Hoptimum) you simply cannot go wrong with this one as this one is rock solid. I will certainly be picking up another one in the next couple of days.
