Listing for all Stone Enjoy By xx.xx.xx IPA beers.

 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.

3.94/5  rDev -11.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served chilled into a fluted tulip.

Pours a hazy bronze color with an inch of airy white head that quickly recedes leaving moderate surface layer and lacing.

Aromas of pine and citrus.

Flavors of both bitter citrus zest and sweet candied citrus peel. There is also a strong pine presence.

Medium bodied and crisp with moderate carbonation and a lingering, bitter aftertaste.

Overall a very nice display of hops. Would definitely try again.

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

Poured from a 22oz bottle 11-09-12 into a tulip.

A: Pours a clear golden orange with a 1finger off white head. Minimal retention with fair amounts lacing.

S: Smells of huge amounts of earthy spicy resinous pine.

T: Close to the nose. Huge spicy, earthy, resinous pine up front. Evolves into sweet bubblegum and malt. Fair amounts of bitterness throughout.

M: Medium body and carbonation.

O: Overall this is an amazing DIPA. Threw me for a loop, at the smell I was expecting that spicy resin hop, mid taste it evolves into this amazing bubblegum sweetness. I applaud Stone for this delicious brew and idea on drinking super fresh beer.

4.43/5  rDev 0%

Enjoy by 12-21-12. Bottled 11-16-12. Consumed 11-21-12

A - Pours a light golden blond with one finger snow white colored foam head. Lacing clings to sides of glass.

S - Mango, orange, tangerine, pine, pineapple and just tons of tropical citrus notes.

T - Waves of tropical citrus and stinging pine needles immediately appear on initial sip. Touch of alcohol heat and then a dryness finishes things off.

M - Medium bodied with a lingering dryness.

O - Hats off to Stone on this one. This a like a tropical party in your mouth with all the flavors of a world class IIPA. More of a dry finish than other IPA's but it just keeps you going back for the next sip. Worth seeking out.

4.51/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Enjoy by 4.1.13. 22 oz. bottle poured into a DFH IPA glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear pale gold with a very substantial white head - about 2 inches with an aggressive pour. Good head retention. Leaves a very nice lacing.

Smell: Huge blast of pine and grapefruit. A little bit of tropical fruit sneaks in there with mango and papaya. There are floral and grassy notes as well, along with a honey sweetness. Slight alcohol presence. Very strong hop profile on this one.

Taste: Not quite as potent as the aroma, but still pretty damn impressive. Again, big citrus, floral, and pine flavors. Bittering hops hit right away and stay around through the finish. The honey flavor present in the aroma is here as well. Alcohol is definitely present in the finish - the only noticeable flaw. The flavor profile is quite similar to Hopslam, but with more bittering hops (and a bit more tropical fruit presence), and a bitmore noticeable alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Stays fairly crisp despite the big body. The bittering hops on the finish dry the palate nicely.

Overall: Phenomenal. The best way to describe it is Hopslam with more bittering hops.

Enjoy by 10.25.13

a: slightly hazy golden orange, with some burnt amber. 3 finger solid white head

s: real dank. tons of pineapple, mango, passionfruit, grapefruit, orange zest. hint of clean malts in there as well

t: again, dank hops. mostly grapefruit, pineapple, and passionfruit. there is a slight malt character in here as well towards the end of the flavor. not too bitter (for Stone). the bitterness comes in towards the end and comes from a tea-leaf like flavor. has that distinct Stone flavor to it

m: medium, with mild carbonation.

o: its ok. i had an earlier vintage at Stone a few months ago and like it better. i enjoy that it is not overly bitter, but with the tropical fruits were a bit more juicy.

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

Poured from a bomber into a snifter

A- pours a clear golden copper, a fluffy one finger white head appears an slowly dissipates to a thin covering, nice ring of lace left on the glass

S- hop hops hops, strong grapefruit aroma,a slightly sweet caramel note as well, slight bready malt notes as well, hops pretty much dominate the nose

T- wow, the hops kick you hard in the mouth, strong grapefruit notes, bitter citrus peel, sweet caramel, a touch of vanilla, very powerful DIPA

M- medium body, smooth and creamy, slightly high carbonation that I wish would have been a little lower, hops put a beating on the palate

O- if you're a hop head and generally like Stone beers this is for you, a very solid DIPA with a really awesome concept, end of the world with an extremely short shelf life, I'll probably try to grab one more bottle if I get the opportunity

4-1-2013

A - Poured from a bottle. Poured with a decent one finger, bright white head. Head faded rather quickly leaving no visible lacing. Pretty light orange, not as dark as I was expecting for such a strong IPA. Crystal clear with nice bubbles floating to the top of the brew.

S - Very astringent hop smell. Reminds me of the Green Flash West Coast. Lots of pine and a little lemon rind. Smells very bitter.

T - Sooo smooth for the ABV. This is very, very impressive. Strong initial bitter bite that quickly recedes to pine and a zesty floral taste. Very nice flavor and tastes really fresh.

M - Very crisp and dry. Leaves you wanting another drink. Very nice carbonation.

O - Another excellent showing of hops from Stone. Very fresh taste. I really hope stone continues these drink by beers and can't wait to see what's in store.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Review of the 4-20-14 Batch:
From the bomber into a standard pint glass results in a very bright,clear golden body capped by a one inch head that slowly falls into a very determined cap of foam with sticky lace all over.
Aroma is pungent pine resin, marijuana,fresh cut grass, not overpowering but substantial.
Taste is upfront hop bitter with a pronounced malt sweetness for balance, but here is where I get off this train, there is a very strong medicinal alcohol flavor that for me is distracting.
On the juicy side. More of a sipper than a refreshing drink
One and done for me, I prefer my DIPAs to hide the alcohol better, Pliny the Elder, Lagunitas Sucks and Boneyard Hop Venom do it better. All that said It's a very good beer and if the other ones are not available I'd never turn this down

22 oz. bomber, bottled on 3/15. 4 days old!

A: Clear, straw colored body. Typical of most Stone IPAs. Nice head and retention.

S: Citrus fruit cocktail, hops and a hint of alcohol. Just a huge nose.

T: Huge hop flavor on the front of the tongue, tropical fruit. Mild bitterness. Very light malt backbone with a dry finish.

M: Good carbonation. Really a pleasure to drink for a 9.4% beer.

O: Great beer. I'll pick up a bottle again if I see it.

12.21.12

Smell is nice tropical fruits - citrus, pineapple, bit of grass, earthiness, some pine. Very hoppy, but not overwhelming. Slightly skunky.

Taste follows the smell. Pretty similar. Very grassy. Pretty hoppy, but actually not very bitter surprisingly. Quite tasty.

Mouthfeel is fine. Pretty light and dry, but slightly undercarbonated.

4.78/5  rDev +7.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

Poured from 22oz bottle - bottled 4/12/13 - into a snifter a nice light golden color, which was somewhat translucent.

Aroma was an overpowering citrus- grapefruit especially, with some floral coming through as well.

Mouthefeel is a standard body and carbonation for a typical ale.

Taste is amazing - hops up front then a bit of sweetness, and similar to the aroma a big grapefruit element. The finish seems to be clean but then a nice bitter bite closes it out.

Overall this is a fantastic DIPA, prob in my top 5. I need to get my hands on another bottle this week if I can--absolutely a great fresh brew.

4.04/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

22 oz 02.14.14 bottle shared between three people in three wine glasses. Happy to see this in Michigan on the (relative) cheap, $7.99/bomber. I'm much more willing to buy this at a reasonable price in MI than I am at $10 in NY.

A - almost transparent, extremely translucent, beautiful oranges and yellows, one of the clearest IPAs I've ever poured. Very little foam on the forced pour. No carbonation bubbles, despite the lacing that gets left up the side on every swirl.

S - huge citrus on the nose, lots of orange, some fruits that balance between acidity and sugar, pineapple coupled by grapefruit, kiwi/mango coupled with some earthier greens, arugula, swiss chard, and butter lettuce. There's something a little fishy here too, an empty, lager-like sweetness; isopropyl alcohol. It doesn't last. The lasting impression is rubbery.

T - sweeter than expected, cloying honey and sugary tones, with only a hint of the fruity hops that back them. The sweet ephemeral fruit notes of pineapples, kiwi, and orange give way to some emptiness that isn't especially pleasant. Big and boozy.

M - there isn't a ton of balance. There's a lot of booze and a lot of sugar that fight each other the entire time. The alcohol is relatively hidden, but not entirely absent. Enjoy By coats the tongue.

O - I love the gimmick, I think it's got a good message. Some of the fruitier tones are somewhat diminished by the rubbery tones. I like the strong booze presence, but it doesn't benefit the taste in any significant way. Enjoy By is good, definitely worth <$8 /bomber, but not any more than that.

The Beers of California

#95

Bottled Date: 9/20/13

A: Yellow to orange golden with a towering pillow of off white foam that slowly fades to lace on the glass.

S: Mango and pineapple on first pour. Strong citrus, pine and flowers come through as the brew settles. There are also hints of bubble gum and mint founded on a base of bread and honey.

T: This brew brings together the sweetness of mango, pineapple juice, and grapefruit along with honey and cane sugar and juxtaposes that sweetness with earth, pine, flowers, and freshly baked bread. There are also moments of mint and green tea which brings complexity to the palate. Some pepper spice joind the warm finish.

M: The linger is forever and the feel is medium with good supporting carbonation.

O: So fresh and so flavorful. I attribute this mostly to the freshness which really brings the hop flavors out. A must grab and enjoy it now .

A – Transparent light copper color. Head is of course thin, but has nice lacing.

S – Hoppy goodness, lots of citrus here, fresh lemon and lime, grapefruit, and a bit of melon.

T – Nicely bitter, good fruit notes, not overly sweet, which is certainly enjoyable.

M – Nicely carbonated, very smooth and refreshing. ABV is undetected.

O – Great IIPA, seriously, freshness matters and drinking this just five days after bottling is awesome. This one has no cloying malt sweetness, it has a nice, juicy, clean hop profile, and is highly drinkable.

Enjoy By 02.14.14 poured from a 22oz bottle into a Lost Abbey embossed Rastal Teku 2.0 stemmed glass.
->Bottled 1-10-14...received in VT (at retailer) 1-21-14...consumed 1-24-14

A- Crystal clear, blood orange beer accompanied by a modest, 3/4 finger's worth of a white, frothy head...moderate retention. 5.0

S- An absolute assault of sweet, tropical fruit (and sweet citrus) aromas that I can only define as Hawaiian or Tropicana Fruit Punch: Pineapple, Passionfruit, Guava, Mango, Apricot, Honeydew melon, Orange/Tangerine, Ruby Red Grapefruit and any others that come to mind. As the beer warms and my palate adjusts, I am picking up some herbal notes...onion and garlic. This makes Lagunitas Sucks (which ranks perfect on my palate) seem quite pedestrian. 5.0

T- As fruity on the palate as in the aromatics. The finish is a ruby red grapefruit rind up front followed by a significant piney bordering-on-astringent bitterness. At 9.4% ABV, there is no discernible alcohol whatsoever. 5.0

M- Adequate carbonation gives this monster a mouthfeel that belies its strength. A significant malt backbone helps buttress the hops yet never gets cloying...this is a clean and refreshing offering. In a phrase, this is 'dangerously drinkable.' 4.75

O- I have had the fortune of having the following in the series of Enjoy By IPA: 02.15.13, 09.13.13, 10.25.13 & 11.12.13...and now 02.14.14. Although I am of the impression that this is the same recipe and just released into select areas, I am now beginning to rethink that theory, as this last batch is absolutely (and hands down) the best of what I have sampled. Thankfully for me (and many of you in the areas that this batch was distributed), has access to one (if not the best) batches of Enjoy By IPA since its inception. 5.0

PS- For those of you who think this beer is "skunked" after the Enjoy By IPA date, you are mistaken...like all other IPA's in the marketplace these days, this beer will be delicious for AT LEAST 90 days from the bottling date.

Ipa cant get any better than this! at least not to my knowledge. this is THE BEST ipa i've ever had, stone does it again, idk what the i.b.u.s are on this one but it has to be close to 130 or more i'd guess. the aroma is heavenly, i wish i could get a car air freshener that smelled exactly like this.
the carbonation is perfect, the taste is indescribable and the after taste just leaves me craving my next gulp! the most pleasant thing about this beer is that despite the alchohol % and i.b.u. this beer is sooo BALANCED.... its unbelievable. perfectly balanced. i had the 7th batch (enjoy by 5-17-13) keep more comming to MN stone!

Bottled on 1/11/13. Tried on 1/16/13. Best by 2/15/13.

Pours a bright yellow with little head (fizzy yellow bear, anyone?), BIG hoppy aromas. Dank, resinous and light citrus. All of the aromas come through as flavor. Sticky sweetly bitter. Expected bitter aftertaste, but not overly so. This could go up against any of the top DIPA's out there, and defeat many of them.

Served from a bottle into a snifter at cellar temperature. This bottle reads "Enjoy By 07.04.13," and it was bottled on the 31st of May.

A one finger white head sits atop an illuminescent, clear golden amber body. Looks like any other great DIPA.

It smells like sweet, freshly peeled grapefruit and oranges! A really intoxicating and irresistable citric scent. There be hops here as well.

The orange comes through big-time in the taste, This is followed by juicy, delicious hops, and finished up with a truly splendid, resiny pine bitterness. No alcohol at ALL. Incredible!

The mouthfeel is like a dream... so unintrusive, and perfectly carbonated for full enjoyment of all the flavors.

This is an OUTSTANDING DIPA. And I'd bet that it would stay this outstanding for at least a good month after the printed "Enjoy By" date. After all, I'm drinkin' this one only about a week or so before that date, and it's still FANTASTICALLY POTENT, both in the nose and on the tongue.

Taste is really, really nice. A lot of tropical fruit, pineapple, very little bitterness.
My favorite Stone beer by far.

A: Pours a golden color that is easily seen through. No head to speak of. Very slight lacing.

S: Lemon citrus and pine, very similar to Pliny smell. Very strong pine.

T: Very clean and crisp IPA. Nothing special IMO, I prefer a east coast IPA style and this is very clearly West Coast style.

M: Medium body, sweet, no carbonation.

O: Very clean crisp IPA, but I wont be buying it again. Very lemon/pine strong taste. If I was a big fan of the West Coast clean crisp style I would enjoy this beer more.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

2-15-13 version, poured into a pint glass with 10days to spare.

A - one of the few beers I feel like deserves a high appearance rating. Translucent honey color. Cotton white foam, initially a 2 inch head, reduces to a quarter inch crown that retains the entire time.

S - kind of disappointingly muted. Lemon peel, some tropical notes, but not big at all. Smells nice, but I wanted some more "in your face."

T - bitter lemon peel, citrus, mango, ends in a piney note, quick and bitter finish. Overall, very good. There are some onion/shallot type notes that are kind of hanging around, never noticed or identified this in an IPA before, not bad, just interesting. Some juicier mango tropical notes come out it warms up. A really outstanding tasting IPA.

M - pretty much perfect. Creamy, medium carb, just thick enough.

O - a really excellent IPA. A/A+. If there were out year round, I'd be hard pressed to drink any other IPA.

This is a review of the 09.13.13 IPA. Drank it on 09.04.13.

Got a growler of it from Oliver's Brew Crew in Albany, NY, poured fresh from a keg. Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. light copper/golden in color and crystal clear (flitered?) with a thick white head that fades to lacing on the glass. This one is an amazing double IPA. Smells of passion fruit, grapefruit and some mango in the background. Little to no malt in the aroma. The taste starts off slightly sweet and explodes with citrus flavor up front: grapefruit and passion fruit with just enough sweetness to balance it out, but nothing to stand in the way of the hops. Middle gets a bit more fruitiness form the hops: mango. Finishes with a touch of piney resinousness and a light lingering bitterness. A touch of alcohol heat, but it in no way tastes to be the 9.4% it claims.

Overall, just what a DIPA should be. It's a high octane beer that drinks easy. This one is focused intensely on hop flavor and aroma with just enough bitterness and malt to balance the beer out and hide the alcohol content. One of the best DIPAs I've had.

Enjoy By 4.20.13 opened a few days ago.

A: Holy shit. The first thing I noticed was the clarity of this beer! It looks like a macro lager! A deep golden color with a solid white head. This beer could be used in billboards. This is what perfect IPAs look like in my head.
S: A blend of tropical fruits and pine resin. Fresh mango, peach, pineapple. Lots of citrus (orange, grapefruit, lemon). *Smelled very boozy towards the end. That was my fault though, I got distracted for a bit and let it warm up more than I wanted. Still great though.
T: Huge hop bite! Citrus and pine flavors blend together perfectly. Some nice toasted malts to hold up those hops. Ends with a resinous bitterness that doesn't linger too long, just right. Alcohol is very well hidden.
M: Light/medium bodied. Nice, medium carbonation. Great for the style.
O: A relatively easy to find, widely distributed IIPA that happens to be one of the best I've tried? Yes that sounds like a winner to me.
