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.

Enjoy By 04.01.13 batch, bottled February 22nd. Served at around 40-45F.

Pours clear amber with a two finger white head that leaves some spotty lacing and settles to a small cap.

Aroma is hoppy with a little bit of everything, pineapple, lemon citrus, floral hops, pine, dank, onion, apricot, alcohol, some bready and caramel malt. Good to very good strength.

Flavor is at first a big blast of oniony hops and lemon, then some pineapple, citrus rind, resinous hops, pine, decent caramel malt backbone, minimal sweetness, great bitterness and a fairly aggressive solvent alcohol punch at the end.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily, with sharp carbonation.

Pretty good Double IPA. Pretty dank. Very hoppy, although a fair bit of malt and booze as well. A nice treat to try, glad it finally made its way into the Georgia market.

Enjoy by 04.01.13 poured into DFH IPA glass

A- A clear golden color with a two finger white head.

S- Grapefruit, floral, pine, some wet grass.

T- Pine, grapefruit, resin, floral notes, bitterness lingers in a good way, well balance, just enough malt backbone.

M- Smooth, crisp, medium body, good carbonation.

O- A well done DIPA that showcase why you should drink IPAs as fresh as possible. I would probably pick this up again.

22 oz bottle being enjoyed nine days out from bottling. It was poured into my Brooklyn Brewery tulip.

Stone's Enjoy By IPA pours a translucent tangerine, with some goldenrod highlights. Two plus fingers of frothy white foam cap the beer and show some decent staying power. Lacing reveals the head to be fairly sticky, but it doesn't absolutely coat the glass like the best do. The nose is absolutely fantastic. Waves of mango, pineapple, and gooseberry come through, with just a little bit of grapefruit thrown in for good measure. If the aroma was just a bit more pungent, it would be perfect. Each sip greets my palate with just a little bit of malt, some light caramel and bready notes. The hops are a little more unbalanced here, with lots of mango and white wine grape here, and just a little bit of the more citrusy flavors. The Nelson Sauvin hops actually get just a little overbearing at times. Still though, the flavor here is one instance where I wish scoring was in quarter point increments so I could give this beer its full due. The mouthfeel is superb, highlighted by an unbelievably light and lean body. I've had 6-7%ABV IPAs with heavier/chewier bodies than the one I find here. The carbonation, while lively, could stand to pop a little more. I love the idea behind Stone's Enjoy By IIPA, and this super fresh hop bomb lives up to its promise and then some. I'm just glad NJ was one of the markets to receive it.
