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.

Damn if that isn’t one of the freshest IPAs I’ve had in a long time. I thought the “enjoy by” thing on the front of the can might have been a gimmick, and surely this beer couldn’t be as good as the reviews say? But it was everything I could have hoped for, and more. Nice bright light copper-amber color with some foamy head and just a trace of spotty lingering lacing. Smells great, nice big bold citrus zest aromas with a little pine in the background. Tastes amazing. Loads of fresh citrus fruit - passionfruit, orange, tangerine, mango, grapefruit, lemon - as well as piney hops, floral hops, vanilla, bread and a great well-balanced malt backbone. So smooth, easy to drink and great mild mouthfeel. Just the right amount of carbonation. It’s additionally an imperial IPA but you’d never guess it since the higher ABV is well-hidden and the bitterness is just right, not too bracing, not too subtle. An outstanding beer and I will venture back to a local pub to sample this one on tap.

[Original rating 2015-12-30] Draft at Horseshoe Pub, Hudson, MA. Aroma of citrus, a little pine. Taste is fresh citrusy hops, perfectly balanced with malt. Excellent IIPA.

Not a NE style (thank God!). Just a beautiful Westcoaster bought at Sam’s in Durham, NC in a canned sixer for a fair price. Should have bought more because I only get there a couple times a year. Clear (no gassy yeast!), hoppy, a tad of sweet malt; this is one of their best. Don’t be scared of the monster on the can, just trust the masters at Stone and your Holloween will be perfect!

Enjoy by 10.31.18 -

22 oz. bottle:

Pours amber to copper with a creamy lasting white head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is robust - pine and grapefruit - some alcohol.

The taste is of pine/resin with grapefruit. A sweet touch with spicy alcohol comes through. Rounded bitterness in the finish. Alcohol shows but doesn't overwhelm.

It has a rich, full body with a silky smoothness despite alcohol bite.

Another winner from Stone! A big DIPA - big on hops and malt that interplay with each other well. Nice!

I really enjoyed "Enjoy by 10.31.18" from Stone, ABV 9.40%, IBU 90. I liked it better than the unfiltered Enjoy By, which had a garlic undertone (this one doesn't).

Look: Amber color, bubbly, with an inch thick white head

Aroma: grapefruit, mango, pine resin

Flavor: It's grapefruit, mango, floral hops notably significant pine resin, and despite the ABV 9.4% there's no alcohol taste.

Feel: Light-medium, fresh and juicy and refreshing

This beer's color absolutely radiates gold with a big foamy head, an absolutely gorgeous pour. Aroma is upbeat and citrusy, but nothing truly of note. Taste is smooth, dank but sweet with the expected hops bite. The big ABV and malt keep it mostly sweet at the back end of a swallow. Mouthfeel, again, is incredibly smooth. Delicious, but maybe a little too rich for more than one or two a sitting.

This is one of the top IPAs I've had (and I'm not an IPA guy). Really had solid hops and offered great color and mouthfeel. Super value compared to Treehouse, Heady Topper and other rarities.
