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.

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)

Enjoy by 4/20/16 (yes, I'm late. I had several before 4/20 and it was just as good).

L- Golden color, solid white head with a lot of lacing.

S- Piney, a little dank and fruity.

T- Great Balance of malt and bitterness. Slightly fruity (grapefruit and mango). Don't really notice the alcohol.

F- Medium body, dry finish.

O- I try to grab a sixer of this whenever it's available. Admittedly I've enjoyed (pun intended) some of these more than others, but it's still among the best I've had.

Poured into a tulip. Enjoy by 4.20.2016 vintage.

Pours a deep honey, with a 1/2 inch head. Head is bright white, has great retention, and leaves thick lines of lace spread out around the insides of the glass. Very dank, resin smell. Lots of fresh tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, and grapefruit. Taste and smell go hand in hand. A lot of juicy tropical fruits. This one is an easy drinker, crisp, and refreshing. Amazing offering by Stone, decent price and readily available, this is world class.

4.20.16 had on 4.20.16 bottled on 3.14.16.

Wow, what a beer! I have not had the Enjoy by 4.20. It sells out fast around here. Now I can see why. The hops are perfectly displayed-pineapple, mango, orange, tangerine, grapefruit. I thought the pine and dank were in line with the rest of the hop's flavor components. The grapefruit and subtle resin kick up in the finish, lingering just a bit. The overall bitterness is moderate at best. It starts low and slow, peaking in the finish. But even the finishing bitterness is mellow enough that you don't think twice about going in for another sip. The hoppy bitterness is softened by pleasantly sweet, and light bready malts. There is some caramel in the malt as well. The malt is always present providing the perfect balance needed for a world class beer, which this beer is. I really enjoy the body of this brew too, smooth and slightly coating/creamy. Alcohol is well covered, which makes this a dangerous beer. All of this contributes to a well balanced, harmonious, super drinkable brew. If you have the opportunity, don't pass on it. This is truly a must have if you are an IPA fan.

4/20/16 version. Pours a golden color with an orange hue, clear with a half inch white head that leaves nice lacing. Smell is floral, pine and citrus. Taste is dominated by grapefruit, a slight sweetness, balanced by a hint of pepper, and then a bitter pine finish. Very dry mouthfeel, well carbonated. A very good beer.
