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 amber with a nice looking frothy two finger head that leaves a good amount of lacing.
Grapefruit and floral aroma. Dominant grapefruit on the front, medium caramel malt and bitter finish to round out the mouthfeel. If consumer reports was reviewing this beer it would be a best buy.

L: brilliant amber, 1” head dissipates to film S: big grassy nose T: Starts rich and creamy with some malt and then an overwhelming hop presence rises up, very well developed. Some malt sweetness in the background, A little pepper, very grassy palate, the hops are intense but not harsh, very mellow F: Creamy, medium to medium full body, medium carbonation. O: The hops flavors are a treat. The combination of intensely grassy hops over sweet malts is marvelous.

I was expecting quite a bit from this one going in - considering it was a pain to find in my area at the time - and I think it delivered. Loved the malty profile and the sweet, almost tropical notes to it, great hoppy finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Surprisingly well balanced. I wish I'd picked up more of it!

Stone doesn't make my favorite style of IPA, but they do make a damn good one, and the Enjoy By series is one of their rare moves that goes beyond gimmick (unlike the Enjoy Afters) and guarantees a fresh IPA. So yeah, not much here that you can't get from their regular IPA or even the Arrogant Bastard which are both easy enough to find, and popular enough that, due to high turnover at most beer shops, you shouldn't have trouble finding a fresh one. But it does have nice holiday coincide-ance so you can say, "Hey look I'm drinking the 7/4 bottle on Independence Day!," but at that point we're going back to gimmick-mode, which Stone does quite a lot of.
