Got this one at a local beer store. Interesting concept so I'm glad to get the chance to try it. Enjoy by 12/21/12...
A: Wow! Holy base malt! This one is super light. Sort of the color of a blonde ale of another light brew. This has a super thick 2+ inch white head that fades slowly. This beer is beyond filtered. This beer is perfectly clear like the waters of Bora Bora! Good.
S: Smells of fresh sweet grapefruit with some blended iced tea notes with a floral backbone. This is definitely an IPA. Good.
T: Starts off with a dry watery malt which ramps up to overcome your tongue with a citrus floral hop bite that lingers and slowly fades on the back into a dry watery light malt. Good.
M: Medium-light body with a carbonation mouthful. A dry bitter finish. Very good.
O: All in all, this is a good beer, but I have had plenty better DIPA's. Definitely try if you like Stone and find the concept interesting, but I find I will not be looking to hunt this one down again anytime soon.

4.2/5 rDev -5.2%
This review came from notes (3rd batch):
A: Amberish/golden hue with a stead head and good lacing
S: Grapefruit, weed, pineapple--so fresh with somewhat of a bready backbone; but mostly lots of hop resin aromas dominating
T: So bitter and resiny: oily, piney, dank, grapefruity--it is so bitter and I wish there was a little more sweetness underneath
F: So sticky and oily and awesome
O: This is a bitter, in your face beer--I like it--but I wish it had a bit more of a malty sweetness underneath; but like I said, it is still a darn good beer

Stone Enjoy by 11.12.13
Pours a clear, light amber. Tight white head retains nicely. Average retention. (3.5)
Aroma is floral-hoppy, slight ester. Pear, fresh-cut grass, tropical fruit, orange. Pretty nice, though not quite as bright as I expected. Slightest bit of paper (oxidation). (3.5)
Flavor is not terribly bitter up front, but the bitterness does linger on the palate. Clean, no autolyzed yeast flavor. Sweet malt and light caramel. Heavy/dank hop flavors come through more in the flavor, as does the citrus. Simcoe funk and Amarillo grapefruit. Alcohol is apparent, but not boozy. Very drinkable for a DIPA, and quite warming. (4)
I waited until the last day this beer was "fresh" and it still tastes great, though I'm sure it would have been even better two weeks ago. I'd absolutely love it if it were a tad less sweet on the front and had more of a biscuit-not-caramel malt character. (4)

4.5/5 rDev +1.6%
A - Poured a clear golden amber with a white frothy head that sticks around the entire time. A gorgeous looking beer.
S - Citrus hits you right away, a nice fresh hop aroma.
T - A touch of bitterness, I get some pine from the hops here.
M - A medium bodied beer with lots if carbonation.
O - An excellent DIPA, I can't believe I've waited this long to have one. It is well balanced, you have no idea it is 9+ abv.
