Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Beautiful yellow-orange oy, excellent clarity, scattered carbonation streams, topped by four fingers of white various sized micro-bubbles. Gorgeous drippy lacing.

Aroma of oranges, apricots, hints of grapefruit and lemon. Clean, fresh, inviting.

A small sturdy caramel foundation is quickly engulfed by an explosion of fresh juicy citrus. Nice bitter snap at the swallow. Big bitter tingles in the afterglow. Very fresh taste overall.

Smooth steady medium mouthfeel.

Another terrific Stone IPA, and the freshness angle comes shining through. Grab a few of these if it comes to your area.

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

Very clean, golden color with a great head on top at first. sticky and gummy lacing on down the glass. Big and fat hop aroma right in your face. Grassy as all get out. Massive flavor assault in both malt and hops. Freshly mown grass, papaya, citrus with a touch of sugary sweetness. Really could not get any fresher. Excellent mouthfeel-just a huge body that is very well balanced against the enormous flavor. WOW! what a great beer all in. Reminds me of Moylan's Hopsickle just picked off the bine. Just killer all in. Had no idea about this beer until the guy in my local turned me on to it. Well worth finding, having and enjoying over and over and over....

a: Clear golden; served with a thick creamy head.

s: Resinous, pithy citrus, raw alcohol, a hint of juicy tropical fruit. All booze and hops.

t: Here again, booze and hop bomb. Extreme bitterness, relatively mild hop flavor. Pithy citrus; oily and resinous. Pretty hot finish. Abrasive in a good way.

m: Oily and smooth.

o: Really good for sure, but I've had quite a few DIPAs I like more in the last 6months or so.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

Poured from a bomber into a Victory tulip. Batch 4, enjoy by 2/15/13

A- pours a crystal clear shade of orange with a two finger white head. Perfect. Exactly what I'm looking for in an IPA

S- tropical hops absolutely punch you in the face. So much citrus going on. Insane

T- not overly bitter. There's a little bit of sweetness, and tons of tropical fruit flavors as well. Very juicy, dank hops. Wonderful

M- medium bodied, not syrupy at all. Awesome

O- man, this is definitely a winner from Stone. If there was a way to guarantee this would be year-round and this fresh in all markets, it would be a staple in my fridge

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

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.

Wow! I haven't been blown away by an IPA or DIPA in quite awhile. That is until Enjoy By 11-9-12. This is far and away the best Stone product I've ever had. The nose if full of incredibly ripe citrus. Grapefruit, orange, and even some pineapple and mango.

Bitter as all hell with huge hop flavors similar to the nose. Dry, light malt profile makes a perfect platform for the hops. No alcohol presence for 9.4% abv. So incredibly fresh and powerful. Solid mouthfeel and caebonation. Just a wonderful beer tat I wish was available all the time. A heavy hitter, wow!
