Notes / Commercial Description:
Listing for all Stone Enjoy By xx.xx.xx IPA beers.


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 5.17.13, bottled on 4.12.13
This beer was bottled 1 week ago from today, and has made it from the brewery in SoCal to a shelf in my local beer shop in Atl, GA in 1 week. Not sure that has ever happened before!

A - Yellow golden hue with a tiny bit of clarity. Whats impressive here is the 3-4 fingers of head and lace left all over the glass!

S - Ok, this aroma is off the charts. Pine cone galore! Fresh hops. Almost burns your nose hairs off its so pungent. Beautiful

T - Like the smell, off the charts piny hops. Sweet, smooth, well balanced. Delicious!

M - Oily and slick. Well carbonated.

O - A fresh hop lovers dream. Glad to have the last 2 series, after finding the 4.1.13 in NYC last month. 2 in a row have made it to ATL, hoping that trend continues!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Enjoyed out of the classic brown bottle with an enjoy by date that also doubles as the enormous silkscreened label. This is from the 12.13.13 batch. Poured into a Belgian tulip glass because that's all I have clean.

Appearance - Body is a crystal clear orange with tones of honey and and brass colors as well. Atop the body sits a moderate head the color of off-white, about two fingers thick. Dissipates over several minutes, leaving a film across the body with a rim of thicker bubbles around the edges of the glass. As I drink it down, there are noticeable rings of lace at each place where the liquid remained while I paused between drinks.

Smell - Pine, some faint grapefruit, and herbal notes, including green onions--the tips, aka chives--and grass. Mostly herbal/vegetal rather than fruity/floral. I also get some esters from the high level of booze, but they aren't overpowering.

Taste - Very much expected based on the smell. Here, the grapefruit is a bit more present up front, along with some lemon zest, which slowly evolves into a more complex flavor with the essence of green onion and fresh-cut grass. The esters are a little more aggressive here, but honestly blend into the overall flavor quite well. Surprisingly drinkable for a 9.4% beer.

Mouthfeel - Moderate carbonation and medium-to-light body, with some element of viscosity lending a slight chewiness to the beer. Dry finish.

Overall, a stellar beer. I've had several different batches (7.4.13, 9.13.13, 10.25.13 and now 12.13.13) and I must admit it's hard to resist the temptation to buy a new bottle from each release. A quality double IPA that certainly stands up to the marketing efforts that surround it. One of my favorites from Stone.

Finally...Enjoy By 4.01.13

A: Crystal clear, golden-yellow with a huge, bubbly, bright white head that leaves behind decent lace and retention. Nothing crazy.

S: Massive hop profile. Like, nostril assault. Heavy resin and pine. Some citrus. But mainly the sappy, thick, pungent, fresh hop vine aroma. Astringent and strong like freshly cut citrus. Makes my eyes tear a bit...from the nose and from the beauty of the hope profile.

T: Super dry and heavy on the resiny, piney side of hops. No fruit or floral character if you're looking for that. Straight West Coast hops that slap you in the face with dry, resiny hops. Heavily hopped and reminiscent of Lagunitas' brews but without enough malt in the finish to balance it out.

M: Craaaazy hops. A bit cloying in the finish. Very dry and properly carbonated. Skunky, earthy, sizzly, hoppy of course, and ultimately palate-changing.

O: Pretty f'n awesome. Worth the hype? Yes. Top notch? For hop heads. Up there with the best? Nahhhh. It's great but it lacks balance and true character. Really a one-trick pony.

Update: 9/13/13 on draft...awesome! Massively bitter, huge hop aroma and flavor, dry, not much of an alcohol presence...everything a hop bomb should be.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- Pours up a copious amount of head which has pretty good retention. The head is pure cotton white while the body is a pale amber which glows a little bit lighter when held up to the light. Some lacing left behind.

Nose- Very warm and inviting. The most dominant note that I get is peach and more peach. There is some orange and citrus as well. Some melon and tropical fruit.

Taste- The flavor profile begins with citrus which is followed by lots of peach, melon, and tropical fruit. Obviously very reflective of the head. Ends with a nice finish of pine and resin and the kind of spiciness you tend to get from really fresh hops. Solid, very good imperial. There is a dollop of honey and caramel on the finish. This seems a little odd to me as most IIPAs that I've had show their malt notes in the middle. There are nectar and floral notes as well. I don't detect any heat at all. The beer has incredible balance and integration. It has a good amount of juiciness which has become standard for IIPAs these days.

Mouthfeel- Light to medium bodied with a little bit of syrup. Good amount of carbonation.

Drinkability- Very well rounded for an IIPA. Very easy drinking. And the price point of 7 bucks a bomber is pretty much unbeatable for a quality beer of this style. No heat at all.

Overall- Very good beer, solid IIPA. Very fresh and definitely worth a try.

22 oz bottle served in a Southern Tier tulip glass. Enjoy by 12-21-12, batch 3.

A: Pours a perfectly clear amber color with a one finger of height pure white head forming on the pour. It dissipates to a frothy collar that leaves some sticky lace behind.

S: Some grapefruit, orange and lemon peel citrus. Sweet malts and just a touch of green onion in the periphery.

T: More green onion up front, but it doesn't hinder the overall flavor profile. Sweet malts, some citrus zest and sticky grapefruit. As the beer warms it definitely takes on more of a sauteed vidalia onion taste to it.

M: Clean and crisp with a light medium to light body. Medium carbonation level.

O: It was better when it was colder, but as it warmed the onion-like qualities became more pronounced. The alcohol was really hidden though and I would have guessed it was 7% or so.

Picked up a mini growler at Hop City. Enjoy by 4.01.13.
Poured into a chalice. Clear deep copper/orange, heavily carbonated with a small frothy white head.
Nose is exceptional. Piney hops, grapefruit and citrus rind, white pepper. Perfect IPA nose.
Taste is very good. Heavy pine hops, balanced with a solid malt character. Some warming on finish.
Excellent IPA. Gotta go get some more.

22oz poured into Nonic pint 12-26 iteration

A: nice soapy head unbelievable clarity see the carbonation light amber color good lacing on the glass

S: very herbal on the nose a little bready

T: very herbal almost some citrus but gone with a very nice sweetness and an herbal almost spicy but not quite taste

M: has a little bit thicker mouthfeel than most IPAs it's actually quite pleasant

O: My best advice I can give on this beer is fuck the reviews and just buy it. I've had roughly 6-7 different batches of this, the first time I had it the beer was a citrus explosion juicy and delicious, the next 5 times it had an over powering onion taste that really turned me off. I had about given up on it but then I decided why not. Now it's herbally which is much more pleasant than the onion but I can't seem to get any consistency out of this beer which in my opinion makes for an average beer. However as you can see just buy the damn thing and form your own opinion on this one.

9/13/13 version. Pours a translucent, golden orange color with a finger length head that dissipates somewhat quickly and leaves a sticky lacing. Aroma is amazing. Tons of of overly ripe pineapple, some grapefruit, orange, papaya, mango, peach, more tropical fruit notes, pine, tiny bit of breadiness and sweetness from the malts. Taste starts with some bitterness, but more tropical and citrus fruits like pineapple, papaya, grapefruit, mangos, some floral qualities as well. Was already smooth on the front end, but then gets even smoother and creamier in the middle from the malts that somewhat balance it. Then finishes dry with more tropical and citrus fruits, as well as some pine qualities. Very smooth and crisp finish that cleans the palate and makes you want to take another sip. Has a slight sweetness throughout, which complements the hop characters and gives the hop flavors almost a gummy bear-like taste. High medium, oily body. No alcohol detected at all. From what I read, this beer is made with mostly flavoring hops and not many bittering hops. I agree with this, as there are just massive amounts of juicy fruits in this. Better than Ruination in my opinion. Well done!

$6.00 for 10oz snifter
Kegged on 1.11.13, sampled 5 days later.

[A] One finger of bright white foamy head, moderate retention. The body is brightly clear and polished brassy orange in color. A minimal amount of lace slathers the glass. Very attractive.

[S] Starts off with juicy tropical fruits of orange, tangerine, and light papaya or mango. Then, summit-like qualities provide a faint but distinct aroma similar to onion grass and chives. Not digging it so much now personally, but my threshold for these aromas in IPAs is low. Begins at a '4.5' and drops a full point.

[T] Again, there is an initial burst of tropical hop character. A light melon flavor comes through on the back end. After the first few sips, the tropical blend all but disappears when the beer fully opens up. The beer is still pretty good, just not as impressive as it was just minutes ago.

[M] Medium full body, smooth, semi thick body, the carbonation kicks in at the perfect moment. The strength is well concealed for a gravity of this height. [Sidenote: 2.15.13 was listed at 9.2% instead of the 9.4% listed on BA.]

[O] Started out with a bang, but transformed and dropped off quickly. I had pours from two separate keg and my experience was the same each time.

Enjoy by 05.17.13 On-tap at the Cask Republic, New Haven, CT:

Served in a tulip glass and enjoyed on 5/15/13. The appeared a nice deep amber color with a thick, rocky white head that was really well retained. The beer gave off an intense pine hop aroma with maybe a slight hint of citrus. The taste was very good...the hops, while very very upfront were not so overpowering that I was turned off by them, as happens occasionally with some DIPAs. This might be one of the best DIPAs that I have enjoyed. The beer felt good and the beer was smooth, but drinkability does suffer given the ABV. Overall, an excellent brew.

I have tried several different dates and they are all top notch. One of my favorite IPAs out there. Nice floral scent with a smooth taste not as bitter as other Stone beers. I will buy this everytime I have the chance.

Served on tap at three rivers six pack in delmont

Appearance clear orange, with bright white half-finger head. Some lacing.

Smells great...piney and sweet but not overwhelming.

Taste is similar. Really piney/syrupy, sorta dank but not dried at all,very wet. Juicy.

Feels smooth, if not a bit thick for an IPA.

Overall fantastic. It's got a lot-a-bit of everything and for some May be too much. I enjoy it very much.

Enjoy By 12.21.12, enjoyed on 12.14.12. 22oz bomber poured into a pint glass.

A: Clear gold. A quarter inch of head dissipates quickly but leaves a ring around the glass the entire time. The lacing left on the glass is stunning! It hangs down almost exactly like the legs in a great glass of wine.

S: HOPS! Plentiful hops, bountiful hops. The floral tones remind me of DFH 120 Minute. I know its only the psychological effect, but it smells fresh, yet still with an unbelievable blend of spicy and sweet. The piney hops overpower the nose but leave room for a trace or two of orange, but only just. Spectacular aroma!

T: When cold, the initial taste is hidden, only to explode into the same hop zest that dominates the smell. As its warms, the taste is simply awesome from the initial touch to the tongue to well after the last drop disappears. With the swallow, the orange sneaks in again but quickly is overpowered by the hops. The hoppy pine taste just clings to the tongue as if it wants you just as bad as you want that next sip. The alcohol is very well hidden.

M: I always find myself able to use just one word for each mouthfeel. Here it is "light." Don't get me wrong though, it is a weightless light, the kind that washes away the hops, only to leave an additional heap right where the last sip left. It builds on itself as it cycles through the washing. If you let it sit to confirm its lightness, the acidic hops dig into the tongue to remind you the best is yet to come.

O: I was blown away by this beer. Arrogant Bastard finished my conversion to craft beer, Ruination led me down the path to hophead-hood, 10 Anniversary Ruination showed to me a hidden paradise, which was Enjoy By. If you at all have to opportunity to try this beer, do not hesitate. My last sip was a good 15 minutes ago and I can still taste those hops. I can leave you only with one word: Enjoy!

Got this one at a local beer store. Interesting concept so I'm glad to get the chance to try it. Enjoy by 12/21/12...

A: Wow! Holy base malt! This one is super light. Sort of the color of a blonde ale of another light brew. This has a super thick 2+ inch white head that fades slowly. This beer is beyond filtered. This beer is perfectly clear like the waters of Bora Bora! Good.

S: Smells of fresh sweet grapefruit with some blended iced tea notes with a floral backbone. This is definitely an IPA. Good.

T: Starts off with a dry watery malt which ramps up to overcome your tongue with a citrus floral hop bite that lingers and slowly fades on the back into a dry watery light malt. Good.

M: Medium-light body with a carbonation mouthful. A dry bitter finish. Very good.

O: All in all, this is a good beer, but I have had plenty better DIPA's. Definitely try if you like Stone and find the concept interesting, but I find I will not be looking to hunt this one down again anytime soon.

This is an impressive brew. Golden orange liquid topped by a clean white head that is large and slow to leave. When it does it leaves quite a bit of evidence of its presence. Nose has an abundance of tropical fruits and light sweet malty goodness. The two pair to create an olfactory delight . Taste builds from there. Hops hops everywhere and just enough malt to ride. While big and pervasive they are not a grapefruit bomb. Multilayered and multifaceted they display an attention to the smallest detail. The tropical side is dominant when colder with the lovely citrus showing its yellow skinned dry and puckering edge as it warms. In all cases the abv is a "Say What?". You can pound this brew and not know it until you wake up on the floor. Feel is medium heavy with a full creamy carbonation the enhances the overall quenching quality. It just drinks like a session ale. A superb beer in all aspects. I love the attention to the hop construct that drives a brewers vision to create something like this.

Nice clear orange, yellow color. Head is two-fingered and composed of white foam. Lacing is quite thin and sparse. Thin.

Scent has a mild sewer gas smell...yum... Lots of enjoyable simcoe hops, nothing more then heavy, piney, citrus. near typical Stone.

Thin, watery, citrus flavors. No sticky resinous hops that the hype/label would lead you to believe. Booze is well hidden with bitter-sweetness. Carbonation is near perfect at a medium-low level.

A good brew, but was not worthy of the hype it received.. Seemed to fall apart, perhaps it should have been called "enjoy by 10.09.12". That way I would have had three days to have drank it. Ha. Not sure if it's worth the $8/22oz

Appearance - clear, golden, bubbly; looks like apple juice. Thick, foamy white head. Lacing is decent.
Smell - mouth watering citrus hops; lots of grapefruit juice, with just a hint of herb!
Taste - mild, bitter hops up front; tangy fruit juice and grapefruit to finish it off!
Feel - a very aggressive, but tasty and easy to drink hop bomb!
Overall - worth the hype, a great DIPA.

Enjoy by 4.1.13 edition poured from a bottle into a (new) Dogfish IPA glass. The pour is beautiful. Clear gold in color with just a touch of hop haze with a perfect 3 finger layer of pure white foam. There's a big oily juicy hop aroma on the nose with notes of grapefruit, oranges, and nectarines.

Medium body with a wonderfully creamy feel and an in-your-face hop flavor. The bitterness of the hops is well-tempered by a big, sweet malt backbone. The combination of chewy malt and oily hops is delightful in this beer. There is a faint vegetative scallion-like taste that I find a bit unpleasant, but the citrus notes of the hops are so intense, I'm willing to forgive it. The mouthfeel is divine. It's the creamiest IIPA I've had since FFF Dreadnaught.

A very good beer and devastatingly fresh. Very tasty, but falls far short of the hype it gets. Fresh Ruination is better than this (and the Ruination 10th Anniversary Ale Stone released completely blows this stuff away).

A: The body is insanely clear. Almost yellow in color, the beer looks very inviting. The two-finger head is white in color and laces the side of the glass nicely. 4.5

S: The aroma is all fruit. Citrus and grapefruit mostly. I'm surprised there isn't more bitterness, but I'm not complaining at all. 4

T: The taste begins with all citrus, but is followed by grassy, bitter hops. I swear there's a dank character in there as well. Slightly weed-like, not going to lie. A very slight amount of booze is there, but it certainly isn't unpleasant. 4.5

MF: Light body with a nice amount of carbonation. The finish is crisp and clean with a really nice bitter finish. It's very drinkable for the high ABV. 4.5

O: Great beer, love the freshness and the hoppiness. I will search and destroy all of the future releases of this. 4.5

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip.

Enjoy By IPA pours a soft golden amber color. It is quite transparent, with visible carbonation rising up from the bottom of my glass into a robust off-white cap. This exhibits great head retention and leaves a few spiderwebs of lace down the sides of the glass.

The aroma is the strongest aspect of this beer. Sweet and juicy mango and tropical fruit hop notes waft out of the glass first, with some candied grapefruit, dank, and pine notes coming through as well.

Even without seeing the label, it would be easy to tell that this is a Stone beer. Brazenly hopped, there is still a great transition from sweet to hoppy, which is a progression that separates the best IPA’s from the rest. A bit of honey and caramel lead nicely into the caramelized grapefruit hop notes, with tons of mango, peach, apricot, pine, and herbal hop flavors as well. The finish is bitter, but the flavors help to grow the bitterness over the course of the sip.

Stone also brews its beers with an understanding of keeping the ABV, flavor, and body all in line, and this is no exception. A high ABV by IPA standards, the flavor really masks any suggestion of booziness, and the smooth body and creamy carbonation work to keep each sip fresh.

With a robust addition of hops across a wide range of flavors, this is a great addition to the Stone family. I also appreciate their effort to encourage hoppy beers to be labeled fresh for immediate consumption.

Opened the bottle served with some nice chicken in a red pepper jelly over vermicelli. The golden color looks great. The aroma as I poured was intensely crisp with an abundance of pine. Once I dug into dinner and swallowed this lightly crisp, but very complex IPA I was blown away. This beer was promised as a fresh, but date driven determinator and it more than delivered an enjoyable experience. It's complexity isn't like the usual offerings in the IPA category. It offers something refreshingly different and makes me want to go get some more before July 4th.

Had on tap at Tj's in Paoli

A: Dark golden hue with a 1 inch head that lightly dissipates as you drink. Very clear almost opaque in color.

S: The grassy notes of the beer are prevalent at the front of the nose followed by a lot of citrus notes following. Grapefruit and Pineapple are the most noticeable fruity notes that come through in the nose

T: Like the smell, the grassy notes are up front. This beer is very fresh and crisp and gives a very clear and delicious taste. The citrus/ fruity notes come through next with pineapple and grapefruit being the ones that come through most. The hop bitterness lingers on the back end and stays with you long after the sip in a perfect, flavorful way.

M: The beer is very crisp and carbonated but not heavily so. It doesn't hinder the flavors of the beer and offers a very clean finish. It tingles the tongue and stays with you after the sip.

O: A great IPA. Very fresh and all the different flavors mix together really well and come through very prominently.

Enjoy by 4.20.15

Aroma: Fresh cut grass, lemon, and grapefruit quickly fill the nose.

Appearance: Cloudy amber pour with a low sticky white head. Head retention is good. Appears still in the glass.

Flavor: Big punchy bitterness up front. Flavors include big lemon, grapefruit, and melon all hit hard. No malty sweetness at all. There is some sweetness to it but more like you'd get from grapefruit or orange juice. Balance is firmly bitter. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is a powdery lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with high carbonation. No heat, astringency, or oiliness.

Overall impression: Big, bad, and bitter. Stone delivers and is worthy of the hype. Glad I tried it. Worth the special treat.

A 22 oz bottle of a special(one time?) brew.

Pours a very clear bright yellow with nice white head and lacing.

Nose is really nice with pine and tropical fruit.

Taste is great. Leans more to the tropical side than most I have ever had. Good and resiny. Some grapefruit to finish it out. I am not up on my tropical fruits. I would guess guava or papaya.

Mouth feel is on the creamy side. Nice and slick finish.

Overall, this is unique special beer. A nice price as well. $6.29 for a 22 is not bad these days.
