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.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

appearance - large frothy head, beautiful yellow orange color and great lacing. what an IPA should look like.

smell - lots of floral and bitterness in this one.

taste - like the smell this one is quite bitter from a ton of hops

mouthfeel - those hops are aggressive and don't leave your mouth right away. pleasantly carbonated as well.

this is a very fresh hop bomb. stone sure knows how to make a hoppy beer

Enjoy by 7-4-14 model

Pours a clear light amber with nice finger and a half of loosely bubbled head that is persistent and leaves a great lacing. Nose is grapefruit and most notable, tons of tropical fruit especially mango/papaya, maybe even some peach mixed in. Extremely fruity. Taste, unfortunately for me, follows the nose pretty close. I don't know the type of hops off hand but there's a hit of hoppy, piney bitterness and then another assault of tropical fruit. Mouthfeel is what it should be, nothing to brag or gripe about. Overall, there's waaay too much of the tropical fruit sweetness for me. I just don't "enjoy" it. I'll still buy the next one though because this series from Stone is generally one I enjoy.

Enjoy by 9/20/14 is ridiculously floral. Nose, taste, such a clean and delicious offering from Stone. Solid IPA. Even the wife thought it was really good, and she hates IPAs. Update: The 12/26/14 was just a delicious mango explosion. Update: 3/14/15 Pi was enjoyed with my pal Jens4212, I got the tulip. Beautiful golden amber pour with sticky-icky lacing. Hop explosion: orange, grapefruit, mango, bit of a savory/earthy hop. Not much alcohol noticeable in the mix of citrus, bitterness, and deliciousness. Clean finish. Enjoy by rocks. Update: 7/04/15 had huge pine/grapefruit juice and citrus peel, crisp and clean with a dry finish, just an absolute hop playground.
