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.

01/26/14 From bottle labeled 01/09/14. Can't get much fresher than that outside the brewpub. That being said I wasn't knocked out.

In fairness I never was much of a hops fan and this follows the Stone model of catering to that taste. Pine was the flavor of note but the lack of depth was striking. I applaud the effort, but no cigar.

Clear pale gold with a white head.

Smell is dank, very resinous, pine, cat pee.

Taste is also big hops, again, resinous, though there's a little citrus as well, some line. Moderate bitterness, this is actually pretty balanced in spite of the intense hops. Delicious.

Mouthfeel is oily, dry, with full, softer carbonation. Light bodied.

This is a killer IPA, stone really nailed it. One can argue that more citrus hops could amp up the complexity, but there is some citrus, and I prefer the resinous hop flavors. Light body, high, clean ABV, what's not to love?
