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.

It pours a lively light gold; the head is just off-white and has a few big bubbles bursting. I get a big, juicy aroma from 10-12 inches away. The head settles within a minute or two to a light covering, and after a few sips to a light ring, leaving the beer looking a bit too quiet, or too much like apple juice.

I smell grapefruit, green apple, mango, pineapple; subtle floral, sweet, and spice notes. Definitely mango and tropical fruit.

Mild carbonation, very smooth feel in the mouth, medium body with lingering tingle of bitterness. The hops flavor is not as intensely fruity as it is on the nose; rather more spice and green flavors emerge with the bitterness. The beer has marvelous balance and perfect harmony of flavors. A nice peak of malty sweetness crests just as the hop bitterness begins to settle in, and they both exit smoothly and slowly, allowing each sip to be fully enjoyed for a full, happy moment.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours a clear orange with two fingers of soft fluffy white head. Head dissipates to a film of foam on the surface after a few minutes, leaving a lot of sticky lacing. Some carbonation visible, rising quickly, and allows for two fingers of head to be swirled up easily.

Nose is grapefruit, orange, papaya, dank herbal hops and some bright fresh pine. Really fragrant and fresh smelling. Unlike a lot of Stone IPA's, I don't notice much malt in the nose, which I think is a good thing as the hops really explode out of this one.

Tropical fruits hit the tongue, mango and papaya, citrus in orange and grapefruit, then a lightly bitter hit of dank herbal and pine hop flavors. Just a touch of biscuit and caramel malt sweetness, but not as heavy handed as Stone's other IPA's. Finish is dry with long lingering sweeter tropical and citrus hop flavors and only moderately bitter. Really delicious beer.

Considering this is 9.4% abv, the light to medium body and clean carbonation is really surprising. Alcohol is completely hidden, with your taste buds getting all of the nice hop flavors. Really happy to have a had a chance to grab a bottle of this to get sent up here to Northern California and hoping the next batch will officially get sent here.

Poured into tulip

Appearance: Pour produced at least a two finger fluffy white head that settled down to a small head that never went away. Color is a bright golden to dingy orange.

Smell: Tons of floral and citrus aromas. Grapefruit rind, orange peel, pineapple and mango blend together with resiny, piney hops. Am also picking up on some caramel sweetness, too.

Taste: Up front the citrus notes dominate. I am tasting mango, pineapple, and some orange. This one is very fruit forward to me for a DIPA. There is some floral and grassy notes in the middle but does not dominate and the hoppiness is evident but very well integrated. Bitterness is present but so is some sweetness that evens everything out.

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly creamy to me?! The bitterness is there but not to the point that it makes me pucker. Carbonation is moderate and this beer has that drying affect on the palate.

Overall: One great DIPA! The entire experience was enjoyable because no one aspect dominated and it is bitter and hoppy while being sweet and tropical at the same time. Simply one of the best, IMO.

Poured into a 13oz tulip.

A - Very light colored, clear DIPA. Solid 2 and 1/2' head, excellent lacing throughout, active in the glass and a small head remains throughout. Near perfect.

S - Pine resin, tons of white grapes and lemon citrus.

T - Not as good as the nose suggests but still good. All the same aspects I mentioned in the nose, but this is all about a white grape, almost dry white wine hoppy flavor. Very unique. Never had a DIPA flavor profile like this. Solid.

M - a little prickly finish from the hops, and not as bitter as it is dry. Malt almost non-existent. Really, this beer is like a white grape DIPA finishing as a dry white wine would. Not very sticky and resinous as you'd expect from a West Coast DIPA or a big Stone IPA.

O - Very unique brew. Mind-blowing? Not for me but very good. I can easily see how this unique profile could be mind-blowing for others though. I can appreciate this beer for sure.

Suggested. It's a hope lover's unique experience of what can also be done with hops...

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Lost Abbey chalice.

A- Pours a nice caramel color with a 2" off-white head. Big waves and clumps of lacing remain on the glass.

S- Big pungent pine, grapefruit, caramel, big floral and herbal notes.

T- caramel, citrus, slight mint, bitter grapefruit rind, some spice and nice pine bitterness.

M- Medium body and carbonation. Has some effervescence and creaminess.

O- Good dipa. Lots of floral and herbal notes makes this beer different from most dipa's. Really enjoyed "Enjoyed By", pun intended.
