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.

Enjoy by 420. Poured a golden straw yellow with a hint of orange. Smells of floral and pine. Taste of grassy, floral and pine resin. A bit of citrus but it is really a afterthought in this one. Very earthy IPA. Very enjoyable. Excellent mouthfeel and finishes smooth and dry.

Pours a solid amber in color with a milky white head that lingers through the session. Heavy amounts of lacing present.

Aromas consists of tangerine and grapefruit, and slightly piney.

A solid hit of grapefruit on the tongue initially, supported by a thin layer of biscuit and caramel sweetness. Finishes with a strong dose of piney hop bitterness.

Dry with a medium to heavy body. Medium carbonation and just a hint of heat from the alcohol.

This is another solid and enjoyable brew from Stone.

Enjoy By 4.20.16, bottled 3.4.16, poured 4.9.16
Creamy orange golden body, half inch head
Smell is a forest of hops, apricot, mango, pine, breadiness, lemon zest
A bitter floral hop at the front of the mouth, some fresh cut grass behind it
Slightly abrasive/harsh feel
A very rich hop experience that I wish had more fruit or malt notes to smooth it out, but as too-hoppy beers go this is really good

The beer poured a lovely shade of golden, with one a crystal clear body. The head was a little small, barely measuring at one finger thick. The aroma was very dank, smelling of grapefruit and pine resin. The taste was superlative. I was blown away by the assault of the dank piney and citric hops strong enough to strip teeth enamel. The hops were backed by simple pale malts that provided just a touch of sweetness. This was a sticky hop bomb, and coated my tongue, and throat going down, providing a long lingering hop aftertaste. The alcohol was well hidden, making this very drinkable despite the near double digit ABV. This is an essential beer if you are a hophead. I thought I had already reviewed it before now, but I was wrong about that. You can bet this is going to be a go to purchase for me from now on.

Up there with the best, one of the most wine-like beers I have ever tasted.

4.20.16 edition, bottled on 3.15.16, enjoyed on 4.08.16.

A- Pours a clear, deep golden, with initial, cascading carbonation streaming up the glass. A white, billowy, two finger head caps and leaves butterflies of lace.

S - The nose is and floral hops with notes of juicy orange, tangerine, and lemon rind. Almost Belgian white pepper - yeast vibe too.

T - Resinous and bitter hops dominate, with rounds of flavors (per the aroma - citrus colors) that resolve in a peppery and malty finale. Complex and wine-like. Drink slowly out of wide tulip and savor.

F - Finishes with alcoholic bite, with a dry, warmth from its 9.4% ABV. Glowing and brandy like.

One of my favorite beers.

Quite similar to last year's, in fact I can't pinpoint much change at all, happy this comes out around my Birthday (04/14).
Enjoy!

I suppose it's the glass we poured into, or the temp, because the last pack I got of these would have ranked much higher, haha higher. But unlike the last this one has an astringent tinge with semi present alcohol taste. Low carbonation and pleasant bitterness that hits the sides of the tounge and roof of the mouth. I feel a slight bit more carbonation could go a long way in hiding the alcohol. Wish I could say that I'll be buying it again someday.
