Enjoy By Tangerine IPAEnjoy By Tangerine IPA
Notes: After brewing this intense double IPA with more than 10 different hops and consistently delivering it faster than any bottled IPA on the planet, we decided to do something different with this Stone Enjoy By IPA—we took it to another level, again. Puréed tangerines were added to the batch to create a devastatingly fresh IPA with a tang of tangerine. The flavors yielded by this addition to the recipe meld beautifully with the bitterness of the hops. True to this series, Stone Enjoy By Tangerine IPA is brewed specifically NOT to last, and should be enjoyed within 37 days.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Bottled 9/27/16; drank 10/10/16 @ the Yarchives.

See-through orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a big bright white head; strong, frothy lace.

Orange soda, cane sugar & sweet tangerine notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Orange soda & sweet tangerine flavors up front; cane sugar & dry carbonation bite on the finish. No booze heat.

Way too sweet; this is basically soda. Not one I'd ever seek out again.

On tap at 5 Points in Athens, GA. Pint growler fill. 11/3/16
L: Beautiful.
S: Tangerine, and big citrus hop aroma. This is the gold standard IMO!
T: May be the best beer I've ever had! Has a great hoppy pop. Dank. Tangerine is the backdrop but this is phenomenal! Tropical. Rich malty creamy smoothness on the finish.
F: Tangy, citrusy, hoppy, juicy, chewy, resinous, malty, bold.
O: Unforgettable! If you find it buy it. It's quite the experience. Can't wait till October 2017 for the next release.

Well beyond its "Enjoy by" date (10.31.16), it still delivers. From the bottle, it pours a golden amber with a modest head and leaves lacing as you enjoy it! Citrus and pine in the nose. The mouth primarily gets hops, somewhat bitter. Not bad after all these months!

This beer draws you in with its aroma, and the taste delivers. While there's a hint of cloudiness in its light amber color, it doesn't look like what you would expect from an IPA, but it delivers.

Reviewed from notes (from a couple months ago, before the 10/31/16 labeled "Best By" date). Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Cigar City Brewing goblet.

A: Hazy gold, with good carbonation and a half-finger of white head that fades quickly.

S: Dank, melons, tropical fruit and pineapple. Then there's a bright orangey citrus over the whole thing. Mild crisp cracker malts in the background. Very nice on the nose.

T: Dank, with fruity citrus oils and melons. Lesser notes of onion/spicy hops and just hints of the tropical fruits. There's a little minty in the hops as well, which is different from other offerings in the series. The light cracker malt body mostly stays absent. Moderate bitterness in the hang, with some more citrus and minty hops.

M: A light, crisp body for style - clean as always. The alcohol presence is well-hidden, and a good level of carbonation sensation.

O: Decent, but the weird mint (or menthol) thing is getting in the way here. I don't know if it's the interplay between the citrus and the other hop flavors, or if there's a different hop in here that actually carries some minty notes, but I’m not a fan of the development either way. It’s just such a well-conceived beer and wonderfully unbalanced it ends up being enjoyable still. But I certainly wouldn’t pick it over the “base” beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy Amber with a thin white head.

Smell: Mostly citrus with a hint of Pine notes.

Mouthfeel/ Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of sweeter citrus and bitter hops.

Overall: Good IPA. I would have this one again if it was brewed again.

From bottle at home. 13 days late. So good that it obviously doesn't make no never-mind.

Hazy honey color with slight head & speckled lacing. The aroma is more tangerine than hops, which I prefer. The taste has the advertised tangerine, though it's as much the zest as the pulp, along with a nicely fruity hops match.

As a big fan of the New Belgium Citradelic Tangerine IPA, it's nice to see another. This has a bit more body.

12oz bottle.

Pours hazy gold with an average head and retention. Pine-rubbed tangerines in the nose. Citrus oil and spruce sap. Medium bodied and a bit tacky. Pine and orange on the palate with a hint of malt and grapefruit following through. Finishes with some lingering citrus pith, pine, and warming alcohol.

Nice beer. The tangerine accents it well without taking over.

Picked up Enjoy by 10.31.16 on 10.31.16, chilled and shared with my brother.

Poured into a custom pint glass: color is gold, head is off white with fine to small bubbles, head laces well and presents 1/2 inch thick.

Smell is pleasant citrus hops, lighter tangerine notes, solid clean malt fermentation.

Taste is similar to the aroma, big citrus hop, definite tangerine rind flavor, clean malt and light toast.

Mouthfeel is crisp, lightly carbonated, with sharp bitternesS

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Teku glass. Bottled on date 09/27/2016.

Appearance: Amber-orange body with a thin cap of head that dissipated quickly, no lacing in the glass.

Smell: Pine, citrus, grapefruit and of course tangerines, dry cracker malt.

Taste: Pine resin, tangerine and plenty of citrus. Nice dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Nice light mouthfeel with that tasty tangerine taste shining through!

Overall: Another great Enjoy By entry! I enjoyed this one very much. Great taste with those tangerines and a super easy drinkability make this one another winner!

Poured from 12 oz brown bottle into a clear glass tulip.

A: Slightly hazy orange-amber with 1-finger off-white head with short-lived retention and spare lacing.'

S: Fruity tangerine with floral grapefruit and guava along lime and melon.

T: Delicious brew but a little off kilter with a slightly paint thinner-ish finish. Lots of guava, grapefruit, and of course tangerine through the mid-palate with some floral and melon notes fading to that somewhat piney, astringent finish.

M: Light but a bit tacky and that astringency in the finish hurts feel a bit too.

O: I liked this beer but like the original more. Nothing hurt though with this effort.

Stone Brewing Co. - Enjoy By (10.31.16) Tangerine IPA. 9.4% ABV. 12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled on 9/26/16.

Look: Settles in the glass a vibrant light orange color, with a ring of lacing along the glass.

Smell: Lots of tangerine citrus aroma, along with some bready malt and some piney resin.

Feel: Light bodied, close to medium, with some mild carbonation.

Taste: Sweet tangerine citrus and dank, bitter resin balance in the initial flavor. Near the end, the malts and bitterness finish it off.

Overall: My first "Enjoy By". Lots of the tangerine profile, balanced out by hops and malts.

(From notes) Poured from draft into a fluted snifter. A clear golden yellow color, short lived hard with nice lacing. The smell is very fruity with strong citrus. The taste has subtle tangerine and other citrus favors, a it of basil. It is floral with a pleasant spicey bitterness. A very nice beer.

A: small half inch white tiny bubbles head sets a top an amber orange body with great clarity.

S: lots of tangerine citrus fruit sweet but that's about it.

T: lots of tangerine integrated fairly well not overly sweet.

M: medium bodied leaning towards full.

O: it's an okay beer, nothing extraordinary. They added fruit to a beer that was already good. Highly unnecessary.

Unfortunately, the Tangerine Enjoy By gets judged by the others in this series. By itself, this is an amazing IPA, but compared to the others styles in Stone's Enjoy By series, this is not my favorite. The tangerine in the nose and the taste is just a tad too much. Having said that, it is still better than 90% of IPA's out there. The booze and the hops subdue the fruitiness of the tangerine, which is a positive for me. Overall, give it a try if you like the other Enjoy Bys. Stone is not capable of making a bad beer, and this one is worth the try as well.

12 oz. bottle, bottled 09/27/16, with a more than obvious enjoy by date. Stone Enjoy By 10.31.16 Tangerine IPA - the tangerine infused incarnation of this now legendary IPA.

Poured into a Central Waters snifter.

A - A wonderful golden IPA orange body, semi-translucent, with lots of good active carbonation, leading up to a good finger's worth of frothy soapy white head that leaves excellent lacing.

S - A wonderful mouthwatering aroma - hits hard with huuuuuge juicy tangerine zest. Earthy, herbal, juicy, and above all - fresh. Mild hints of floral alcohol.

T - Taste is the same: big, piney, floral, earthy, zesty, & hoppy. Subtle floral alcohol fumes merges with the tangerine zest and the hops, to create a juicy and creamy IPA.

M - Feel is smooth, crisp, creamy, zesty, & juicy. Ridiculously refreshing and easy-drinking for the semi-massive abv.

Overall, an excellent IPA from Stone. Dangerously drinkable at 9.40% abv. Will likely grab a bomber of this the text time it is around.

Poured into a 16 oz Flying Dog tulip glass bottled on 9/26/16 straight from the fridge. Pours a very attractive yellowish orange with a 2 plus finger sticky white head that leaves excellent lace behind.

Smell is tangerine, lemon, guava, pine, and grapefruit.

Taste follows tangerine from start to finish, but not over the top, guava, lemon drops, with a piney grapefruit bitter finish. One dimensional, kinda and I love the taste. Yes, I said it.

Mouthfeel is above medium, perfectly carbonated, maybe a little dry, and drinkability is off the charts at 9.4% ABV.

Overall I love all variations of this beer and this one excels also, the tangerine is always there, but very subtle.

A beautiful amber with healthy white head. Smells very sugary, like syrup or marmalade. The taste is decently citrusy, but a little too sweet, like an overly ripe orange. The mouthfeel is a little cloying. Overall, not the strongest output from Stone.

L: Clear copper with plenty of visible carbonation, a small white head with fairly short retention, and some spotty lacing.

S: Very zesty orange peel, like ripping into an orange, with the bitterness of the orange pith, the characteristic Enjoy By green onion and dank resin, and a backbone of sweet biscuit.

T: Very pronounced malt sweetness, biscuit bordering on caramel. Zesty orange peel, orange pith bitterness as well. On the mid-palate they combine into an orange marmalade. Finishes with green onion and pine, a punch of bitterness, though with less bitterness than a typical Enjoy By, and some orangey sweetness. The aftertaste lingers of orange peel bitterness.

F: Mouthfeel is medium, carbonation level is nice. Slightly oily on the tongue, but finishes crisp and dry.

This is a decent beer, but is my least favorite incarnation of Enjoy By thus far. Give me more of the unfiltered, regular, or black variations, please.

This is an Enjoy by "10.31.16" that I'm enjoying on 23-Oct-2016. From a bottle, pours as hazy amber with an off white head. Aroma of hops and indistinct citrus. Flavors are dominated by a gragefruity astringency. Tastes are of hops, tangerine and booziness.

This beer poured a darker golden orange color into my Teku glass. This bottle was dated 9/26/2016 so less than 30 days old at this point in time. A 1/4" white head formed on the top.
The nose of this beer is pretty much what I have come to expect from Stone. Some sweetness mainly from the alcohol and the malts used in this blend. Not a lot of nose from the tangerine if any IMO.
The taste runs pretty true to the style of beer for me. A fairly heavy malt forward type of IPA. A fair amount of bitterness in the taste from the hops but I find little if anything in the taste from the tangerine. This beer to me is a little overly sweet tasting perhaps from the tangerine but I think more from the alcohol.
The mouthfeel is pleasant with good carbonation and a thin white head lingers for the entire glass.
All in all a solid beer in the style so similar to many of the Stone IPA's in the taste and malt bill. But just not anything that would be a go to style of beer for me.

Bottled 9/26/16, it pours very hazy copper color with a thick 1+ finger light beige colored head that was packed with bubbles and dissipated very slowly, leaving very nice spotty lacing and rings as it went down.

Smells of tangerines, orange peel and clementine up front, followed by grapefruit and lemon zest, biscuit, roasted grains, bread pudding, hay, white pepper, dry floral hops, herbs and graham cracker. The citrus and tangerine aroma that starts this off smells wonderful, but gets suppressed a bit by the grains which add decent balance.

Tastes like it smells with tangerines, orange peel and clementine up front, followed by grapefruit, lemon, biscuit, roasted grains, dry floral hops, herbs, dry grass or hay, white pepper, graham cracker, toasted wheat bread, peppery spices, powdery yeast, earthy notes like twigs or tree bark, and then some dry spices like oregano or old weed. After the citrus hop bitterness fades it seems like this beer turns herbal and dry, so it's like a tale of two DIPA's as it progresses. I like the way it tastes and respect the use of tangerines to craft a different version of this series, but I don't love it.

Stone's Enjoy By series, is IMHO, what all DIPA's aspire to be, and this one is no different. The only difference with this one was the ever-so-slight hint of a tangerine-esqe, citrus aftertaste. Other than that, it's pure Stone goodness.

Lightly weathered copper orange in color with a light haze that slowly clarified as it warmed. Pourd with a thick, billowy, off-white foam with great retention. Medium high, sharp, fresh citrus hop aromas with a definitive freshly pealed tangerine aroma. Medium light malt aroma beneath. Medium bodied with medium light carbonation and creamy smooth feel. Pleasant warmth from the middle to the end. Medium high citrus hop flavors up front with orange and tangerine. Medium spicy hop bitterness through the middle with touch of boozy heat. Mellow citrus hop flavors with spicy notes to the end. Finished with a mellow hop bitterness. Mellow, fresh hop character. Not super bitter. Easy drinking for the high abv.
