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.

Received the bottle of "02.15.13" in a trade from Jeremy6566. Poured from a bomber bottle into my Deschutes tulip.

A - Pours a crystal clear golden yellow color with a finger of off-white head that has some real staying power.

S - Big earthy hops in the initial smell. Sharp pine and pineapple lead the assult.

T/M - Big earthy hops come thru in the taste just as the smell suggests. The malt profile is pretty carmel-ey, and a little smokey...? I love the hoppy resinous aftertatse that stays with me. Medium slick mouthfeel, good carbonation.

O - Stone does IPAs like Ferarri does sportscars! This one, like many others from Stone, doesn't dissapoint at all. A hoppy DIPA that hits all the right notes. Alcohol isn't noticable at all. Great hop profile that's not shy to stick around for a while.

Thanks again to Jeremy6566 for sending this one my way! Cheers!

Pour is a transparent golden yellow with a relatively small white head, dissipates fast, and doesn't leave a lot of lacing.

Aroma is the first sign that this beer is going to be great. The Hops stand out. Fresh hoppy citrus smell...what fruit or citrus is a mystery to me.

Taste is very hop forward...hops...hops...mysterious fruit flavor , hops. As strange as it sounds that this is a good taste, I also feel as if I could clean my oven or scrub my shower with this stuff. A fresh , clean taste that lingers on the palate... amazing.

Medium bodied mouthfeel that leaves a resinous feeling ...and again, the fresh hops linger!

I am very impressed with this offering from Stone. Not many beers live up to the hype, but Enjoy By is Legit. If you see it on the shelves, scoop it up because it won't be there long.

Enjoy by 2-15-13. Drank at NWI super bowl tasting

A - Light orange yellow with a small white head

S - Mango, tangerine, light grapefruit, and bitter pine

T - Bitter grapefruit with light pine up front. Light mango and honey syrup that provides a nice sweetness to it that keeps it from being too bitter up front.

MF - Light body with slight syruipiness to it. Light body with nice resin remaining in the tongue

O - Solid DIPA that has a nice balance between the bitter hops up front and the sweeter, more tropical fruit flavors.
