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.

I frequently say that I'm not a fan of hop bombs, yet very time I have one like this I have to reconsider that position. Excellent smooth hippy deliciousness.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Murky apricot color. Fizzy head that settled to a skim. Viscous looking surface tension. Intense smell of pine, sweet pineapple, citrus, and grass. Equally intense taste with a prominent hop bitterness. Malty backbone. Decent body. A little slick.

Stone is without a doubt one of the best breweries in the world. Their IPA is delicious and this variety is very close to Arrogant Bastard and is extremely enjoyable.

Stone Enjoy By is an extremely fresh double IPA with an especially big, citrusy, floral front end. Love how Stone sends a clear message that this beer needs to be consumed ASAP with the clear label.
