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.

Smooth, full-bodied, with fresh intense hops leaning toward the citrus end. Fresh, well-balanced, and full of flavor.

Not a big fan. It was good, but not great. Put this in line with so many other double ipas. Big hop presence with bitterness. The High abv is not present.

Enjoy By 7.4.16
12oz bttl into Tulip
L- pours a perfectly clear dark gold with thin foamy head which disappears pretty quickly
S- tropical juiciness along with some Bubble gum that jumps out of the glass and makes me want to dive in....
T- sweet malt, followed by some chewing-on-pine bitterness that goes down in a tropical blast
F- medium bodied well carbonated extremely drinkable for a beer with 9.4% Abv
O- the ranges of this beer are amazing from piney bitterness to tropical goodness, extremely well balanced with sweet malt, the aftertaste just kills it begging for another sip and so drinkable for 9.4% Wow!!! count me as a fan

I have never been one for following suggestion. @stonebrewingco said I should enjoy this by 7.4.16. I said no. I will enjoy this right now. And just that I did. Forget all the stuff I could go into. The appearance? Beer. After that, everything else is just hops, on hops, on glorious and magnificent hops! The nose hits you in the face like there is a little mysterious being inside this beverage showering you with a firehose of lupulins. It completely covers your palate in delicious hop flavors like glitter off a strippers tits. At that point you're done. You know how it finishes? Hops. It's fresh. It's smooth. It's all things Stone. I suggest they change the name to "Enjoy by tomorrow" because that's about how long this should last in your fridge. #reviewsofbrews #stone #stonebrewery #stonebrewing #stonebrewingco #stonebrewingcompany #beer #hops #humuluslupulus #ipa #stoneenjoyby #stoneenjoybyipa #stone20

Stone is back in WI and I get to have my first ever Enjoy By! 7.4.16 bottled about a week ago. Poured 12oz bottle into snifter. A clear dark gold with streams of bubbles ascending to the 3 finger white pillowy head. Retention is amazing and leaves a cap with very thick lacing on my glass. Aroma is very fruity with some nice citrus and dank hops. Sweet tropical notes. Flavor is more tropical and juicy with faint notes of bubblegum and a bitter finish. Feel is medium with an oily feel, but slightly dry on the finish. I had no idea this was close to 10% ABV! What a treat, glad to finally try one.

Great beer but the price is a little out of order. Picked up a sixer of Luponic distortion at the dame time for about half the $. Stone has some great beers and many just good beers. If you can find it and justify the price check it out.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle dated as bottled 5/28/16.
Smell of orange rind and tropical notes.
Pretty amazing combination of several hop strains and the malt comes in but not overpowering.
solid mouthfeel but nothing overly special.
would buy again 16.99 for a sixer but worth it in my opinion.

Enjoy by 4/20/16 Bomber drank on 4/20/16. A great Enjoy by when wonderful tastes through out the whole experience. This has a dank piney citrus taste that is enjoyed in so many ways. It's a superb IPA and I'm glad Stone does this by keeping those fresh IPA's on the shelves.
