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.

Beer number 501

This beer looks great golden with orange and honey and a nice three finger head that lasts for a few minutes before breaking. The smell is mostly pine with some citrus as well and malts. The taste is high pine hops and a nice malt support. Mouth is slick, which I found surprising, and carbonation is medium.

All in all a damn fine beer. Perhaps the best from Stone 8 have had, and one of the best in the style I have enjoyed.

Enjoy by 12-25-15. This is my 5th enjoy by, each slightly different but overall all fantastic. This one, like all the others, poured a golden color that is very clear with a ton of foamy white head. The smell is floral and piney with a bit of citrus. There is a lot of hop flavor up front, very citrusy with a resin finish. This has a medium mouthfeel. I look for each iteration of this beer as it is always enjoyable.

12.26.14 version. Quite a frothy, white head, with lots of lace. Very hoppy with citrus and floral notes, particularly grapefruit. Sweet with a bitter finish. Well-carbonated and refreshing, with a long finish. This is a solid IPA.
