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.

Poured into a wide tulip glass. Big lacy white head, very much like a Belgian blonde. Big nose of grassy, earthy, and floral hops. The taste has much of the fruit and straight bitterness of their mix of hops. There is a slight green taste in the glass. Certainly a slick feel and syrupy amount of malt. The body is a little on the thinner side and carbonation medium at best. Neither detract anything from the beer; they allow the hops and all of their glory show through. This was the latest incarnation, 4-20-16. Each release seems to be close to the same recipe, IMO.

4-20 IPA. Draught. I found this boring, flavor profile was typical west coast IPA, just stronger.

Stone- Enjoy By: 4/20/16 - Draught - 9.4% abv 90IBU American DIPA poured into Snifter. written and consumed 4/6/16 posted on BA 4/28/16

Look- Light cloudy orange, poured 1" head, retained none.

Aroma- TANGERINE! citrus, juicy (smells juicy), lost of fruit ester going on, Piney, Spicy, catty ammonia, and lots of hops

Taste- Started mild due to the temperature of the pour, smooth and easy bitters. as it warmed it became very earthy, dry, piney, dominated by tangerine and fruity juicy palate, nectar

Aftertaste- SO DRY, i liked that. Crisp, malty smooth, almost had a faint sweetness, assertive alcohol presence as it warmed

Mouthfeel- Clean, medium body, medium carbonation, clean, but unfiltered lingering flavors

Overall- Holy DIPA! Intense ale not for the faint of heart or beginner craft beer consumer. Alcohol and fruit flavors overwhelm the palate especially as it warms.

04.20.17

This iteration of Stone's Enjoy By IPA is a crystal-clear, finely effervescent golden beer topped by a giant, off-white pebbly head; retention is good and lacing is excellent, consisting of thick, fine-grained bands and ladders. The nose is medium in intensity; it leads with biscuity malt, which is quickly overridden by a nice blend of grapefruit and cannabis with hints of perfume and tamarind. Alcohol overtones are deceptively slight. Up front, the palate is medium-bitter pineapple and nutty, caramelly malt; mid-palate, the biscuity malt foundation presaged by the nose shows itself prominently, and the hops expand to include grapefruit notes and a bit of grassiness. Perceived bitterness rolls back to moderate in the face of the malt onslaught, and alcohol undertones are considerable. The finish is a good hit of boozy, nutty caramel, and is modestly astringent; the linger is a surprisingly modest resinous pine bitterness that lasts for awhile. Mouthfeel is on point for the medium body, and is moderately astringent; the texture is slightly creamy and medium-peppery from the well-expressed carbonation. (12 oz bottle, 20 days after pkg, 17 days before best-by)
