Enjoy By Unfiltered IPAEnjoy By Unfiltered IPA

Brewed by:
Stone Brewing
California, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.40%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
In most cases skipping a step is a bad thing. Not this time. This version of Stone Enjoy By IPA omits the part where we filter out the extra yeast, hop sediment, and proteins that build up in beer as a natural result of the brewing process. Though it may sound it, this missed step was no misstep. By letting this IPA go unfiltered, its peach and tropical fruit hop flavors are amplified while its golden-hued color takes on a hazy appearance. Like its filtered counterpart, this IPA is brewed specifically NOT to last, and is shipped immediately to ensure hopheads get their hands on it as soon as possible.

I always wanted to try an unfiltered IPA because of all the praise they have been getting the past few years. Whoa! I sure hope the new england style hazy IPA'S don't taste like this crap. Someone mentioned on this page that this beer has tasty tropical fruits notes. Are we drinking the same freaking type of beer here. Hey bud, you need to go get your mouth fixed or something. With this IPA you're not getting that big bitter grapefruit tasting hop hitting you in your mouth like a cigar city jai alai or a ballast point sculpin so that is not the problem for me so now I bet you're wondering what is wrong with this IPA then? I will tell you what the problem is folks. It's way too danky tasting. This freaking beer tastes like i'm drinking a beverage laced with some garlic and onions added to it. I do not recommend this. This is not undrinkable but sure is not pleasurable either. I will give this beer the benefit of the doubt. It's not an absolute failure nor is it an A. Cheers! C- (70-74) score range

Amazing tropical fruit in the nose, even better in the mouth. A tremendously fruit-forward IPA.

Enjoy by Xmas and it's 3 days to go. Didnt realize the 9.4% ABV prior to pickin up the sixer. Whoa boy. Huge, frothy head when poured into the pint glass. Light, amber transparent color - almost honey-like. Big, citrusy pungency with grapefruit being the most poignant. Taste is all hops but balanced pretty well. Too hoppy for Mom but that's ok. Mouthfeel is large and very full. More than one of these will knock me on my arse! But a tasty DIPA nonetheless

1/7/18: Enjoy by 12/25/17 (two weeks late unfortunately) on draft at The Garage ($7.50), double unfiltered IPA. Cloudy and murky orange pour, puffy one finger cloudy white head. Citrus hops predominant aroma. Taste of very strong hops and bitterness, which I completely enjoyed. Nicely balances with citrus, apple and ginger in that order. Thin mouth feel, carbonation holds, nice texture. Overall very good offering by Stone!

This is one of my favorite beers of all time, just had the batch enjoy by 12/25/17 and it was absolutely outstanding.

Look: the look is a dark orange color with about a Finger and half of head and just looks great

Smell: The Smell is Dank, with hints of honey sweetness, orange rind, grafruit rind, pineapple, Tangerine, grafefruit, just so juicy smell. Tropocal for sure.

Taste: it first hit my palate and I was like oh my god what an ipa. When I had it it was bottled on 11/18/17 and I had it on 12/3/17 boy was it fresh and so delicious. All the flavors come out. It’s quite expensive at 1699 a six pack, but I’d pay that all day long for this perfect IPA from Stone.

Feel, light carbonation, very easy drinking, it drinks to me like a 6%abv but it’s just so well balanced.

Overall: if you never tried this beer wait till they come out with the next batch probaly in April and Definetely pick up some. It’s a must try at least once. Complete awesomeness.

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

Appearance: hazy orange in color with a 2" head that lasts a long time. Nice lace paints the glass. 12.25.17 version.

Smell: mild tropical fruit tones with some sharp citrus.

Taste: caramel, bread, some grass, oranges, pineapple, mango, and an earthy bitterness. Alcohol is lightly noticeable.

Mouthfeel; medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp and mildly dry late. Long lasting aftertaste here.

Overall: I have always picked up anything in the Enjoy By series when I can find it. Never disappoints.

Poured out of a can 5 days after I was supposed to, according to the title "Enjoy By 12 25 17" either way i'm not going to fret...
A - Blonde and Copper with chunks of unfiltered goodness floating about and a friendly white finger of head.
S - Strong hop aromas come off the top, tangy, eccentric, and citric.
T - Delicious mix of yeasty bread and semi sweet fruits and hop bitterness all hit at once and fade like shot with each sip.
M - Mouthfeel lends a chewy medium body that sticks around for a minute on the palate.
O - Overall a good IPA that I would love to try at the brewery, I couldn't see this holding much shelf life though.

Being quite familiar with the various iterations of Enjoy By IPA, im reviewing the unfiltered version with high expectations. Being that it is 12/23 and the date is Enjoy by Christmas, looks like I made it in the nick of time. Phew!!!
Compared to the regular Enjoy By, this one is predictably hazy. The color is golden orange with a big fluffy and moussy head with a frothy, lathery cap. Lots of lacing too.
Fruity aroma reminds me of freshly squeezed orange juice, peaches and lemon peel. A subtle hint of grass and pine can be detected amidst the fruity bouquet. Overall, the hops dominate the aroma.
As with the aroma, the hops are the leading character in the flavor. Similar to the regular Enjoy By, the big citrusy and juicy hops flavor combines nicely with the grassy and piny bitterness of the finish. Flavors of orange peel, grapefruit pith and peach pit.
Besides the look, the mouthfeel is what really sets this apart from the filtered version. Judging from memory (for lack of having the filtered version on hand) , I find the carbonation more gentle and the mouthfeel more smooth. Something about this seems to mellow out the hoppy intensity of Enjoy By filtered. Also, the alcohol strength seems a bit more hidden, as does the sweetness.
Overall, a slightly less intense and perhaps drinkable version of Enjoy By. Hard to say which I like more. Both are excellent.
