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.

So I'm having this a day late (2/15, not 2/15). The day doesn't seem to have ruined it. It pours a slightly cloudy orangey gold with a nice white head that leaves some small sticky lacing. It has lovely rich tropical fruit, citrus and floral hops aroma. The taste is restrained for a Stone IPA, but it is still a delicious and well-made beer. The hops flavors are not overwhelming, but blend together well and are supported by a sturdy and subtle malt backbone. Not too heavy on the palate and with just a little bitter bite on the finish.

This is the 02.14.15. Clear with a nice layer of head. Smell of juicy citrus with a taste to match. Unlike other citrusy/juicy ipas, this has a nice bite of hops towards the end. Great beer all around...always excited to try the enjoy by variety's.

A - 1-inch head. Color is a clear amber. The carbonation is super lively.

S - Like a pine tree forest, with some orange peel and strawberries. The hops are very powerful.

T - Sweet and hoppy, without extreme amounts of bitterness. Notes of passion fruit and orange peel, with some malt coming through.

M - Medium body, without much burn.

O - A nice pleasant taste. Not extremely bitter and very refreshing.

I really enjoyed the Enjoy By 02.14.15 Double IPA by Stone Brewing Co. It has a great smell and taste. I hope to get my hands on the next Enjoy By IPA.

This one kills it every time. And I ALWAYS make the deadline...If only I were so committed in my personal/academic/professional life.

Ratings for the 2/14/15 batch.

I've heard that it's always the same formula, but I have no knowledge of my own on this. Good beer, though I wasn't as crazy about it as some people were.
