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.

Pours a clear, soft orange color, with a 2 finger of white head. Left lots of lace.

The aroma is Floral and fruity, citrus and tropical fruits. Some mango and pineapple. Not much in the way of malts, but that's probably intentional.

Lots of tropical fruits, pineapple, orange, lemon zest, slight bready malts, touches of pine too.

The feel is upper medium, slightly crisp with a good, not-overbearing feel to it.

I'd say this is a super successful IPA. I love the premise and assurance that you will be getting awesomeness. Bravo

22 oz bottle, thanks Richard.

Pours a light, clear golden amber with a finger of white head that fades to a thin collar and dots of lace. Aroma smells like Stone beer with Nelson and floral hops, citrus and earthy bitterness, lingering herbal notes. Flavor is more bitter than expected, strong malty body, sugar and chewy with resiny citrus bitterness in the finish. Medium thick and chewy, well carbonated. A solid Stone IPA, so...

Bottle to Bruery tulip.

A - Slightly hazy medium yellow. One finger of bright white head that reduced to a thin layer.

S - Huge pine aroma up front with some grapefruit, peach and spice aroma present as well.

T - Big bitterness up front. Grapefruit, pine, lemon, orange zest and a touch of pineapple. The malt bill is barely present.

M - Light to medium body. full of sticky hop oils. Light carbonation.

On tap at O'Brien's. Pint glass.

A: Pours an orange tinted golden, excellent clarity, a finger or so of white head, very good retention but not much lacing.

S: Smack of toffee with delicate undertone of citrus hops.

T: Lots of sweet, luscious caramel, some bright citrus tries to peek through, piney kick, and mild scrubbing bitterness on the backend.

M: Full bodied, medium carbonation with some bite.

O: Excellent DIPA, but less hoppy and more caramelly than ideal. Maybe the hops are already on the downhill.

04.01.13 on 3/5/13, which is four days after it came into local stores. Pours a nice bright medium honey tone. Looks pretty clear, maybe a touch of haze. Medium white head. Fine bubbles. Some lacing. Aroma is full of bright hoppiness. It's a mix of floral, sweet citrus and tropical fruit notes. Some things that come to mind: sweet grapefruit, tangerine, honeysuckle, peach, pineapple, papaya, kiwi, lavender. Very nice. Little to no malt contribution. Maybe just a bit of simple sweetness. The taste is chock full of hop flavor, and the bitterness is tuned just right for my palate. There's no bland bitterness to this beer. It's always complex and delicate hop flavor. Absolutely wonderful taste. Mouthfeel is light. Gentle carbonation. Long-lasting hop finish. No booziness. This is an excellent DIPA. I tried the first version and was less impressed, but perhaps, I didn't have a big enough pour or something. This beer is tasty. If you like hops, I can't recommend it highly enough. Kudos to Stone.

Pours a bright golden orange clear body with a bone white contrasting head. I swear this thing would glow in the dark.

Smells of juicy tropical fruits, dank grass, and pine. Tons of aroma.

Ahhh the joys of fresh ipa. Mango, floral, piney, and a light onion finish.

Mouthfeel is about right. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Very clean.

I loved every minute of this beer and quite possibly Stone's best beer.

A: Lighter shade of yellow-amber. Slightly hazy. Forms a large, fluffy, off-white head that has good retention and leaves a good amount of lacing on the way down.

S: Aroma is all hops, but not as powerful as expected. Never-the-less, the aroma is all hops: citrus, lemon, pine, and a bit of hoppy spice.

T: Light malts and a bit of biscuit. Then the hops kick in. Lemon, peppery spice, pine, and some citrus. There is a bit of a white grape quality, maybe some Nelson Sauvin in the mix?

M: On the heavier side of medium. Moderate bitterness. Mild dryness. Appropriate carbonation.

O: A very nice beer. Full on West Coast style IIPA.
