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.

Pours hazy, golden amber. Medium, white head that lasts a while.

Smells of Piney, dank, malt

Tastes strong piney bitter with light bready malt hints of citrus. Finishes dry with a resiny linger. Fuller medium body with creamy medium carbonation

Big time fan of the Enjoy by series and this latest batch didn't let me down. Nice and Dank and just as good as previous editions. This one is full of bodied, floral and nice and smooth. Had that creamy feel to it that I've come to expect.
Stone has me hooked and I will be there for the next batch . Keep it flowing boys I can't get enough.

Great IPA always fresh but never the same twice which is why it can be amazing or not really your style. Over all the good ones overtake the bad and for this I give it a 4.25 overall rating. Also trust the bottle and enjoy by the date on the front of the bottle. Not much later than that date can alter the overall feel and integrity of the beer.

By far my favorite beer I have ever had. I mean...come on people. It's amazing. Takes a lot to get 5 star ration across the board. Look is a fantastic light golden haze with bubbles and awesomeness. Smell is like I'm peeling a grapefruit or maybe an orange or maybe a star fruit/grapefruit/orange/tangerine/mango-hybrid. Just incredible. Taste is basically the same as the smell. Just outstanding. Seriously world class stuff here. As far as west coast American IPA's are concerned this is the cream of the crop. Mouthfeel is just outrageous. Crisp, clean, smooth, thick enough to really set the flavors into your tastebuds, light enough to wash away after a moment or two after swallowing. Overall this is probably my favorite beer of all time, and each iteration is just a new and exciting version to sample, every time a new enjoy by comes out it's a nice diversion to a different aspect of the original profile without changing so much as to be unrecognizable as an enjoy by. I look forward to each one, especially the unfiltered editions. Thank you stone!!

One of the best beers I have ever had. It is rare that I give a beer at 5 star rating, but I simply cannot find anything wrong with it whenever they make a new batch.
