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.

I have now enjoyed both the 4/20 and the 2/14 versions of the "Enjoy By". I've like every Stone offering that I've tried, so I wasn't surprised to enjoy these. This is an imminently drinkable ale for this amount of alcohol. This had well rounded flavor and seemed to have less of the sweetness than the Lagunitas Undercover. (Which was also amazing) This featured a nice head, pleasant aroma, and smooth mouthfeel.

This one pours a beautiful shade of copper with a two finger fluffy white head that teases you to sip what's beneath. I say sip because this is truely a DIPA weighing in at 9.4%. Heavy speckled lacing dresses up the glass screaming freshness.

Aroma is rich and earthy with pine and grapefruit signaling to the taste buds "this beer has balance". Hops, hops and more hops...

Taste is big and bold and full of flavor. Pine, grapefruit and a spicey blend sums it up. Damn this is tastey.

Mouthfeel is bitter sweet draped over a medium body. Near perfect bitter aftertaste, much smoother than I was expecting. Don't get me wrong, this isn't sessionable by any stretch of the imagination but it isn't difficult to put down either.

Overall, a super addition to Stone's IPA portfolio. I've enjoyed all three "Enjoy By's" and have been pleased with each offering.

pours a nice deep golden orange that is slightly opaque.
Smell is classic stone. Piney, hoppy and crisp.
The head is think but laces beautifully down the glass.
Nice strong hops up front. Pine, citrus, peachy maybe a little pineapple. Very slight malt presence, very effervescent and slight resinous as you swallow. Strongly bitter after taste/ as it goes down.
Overall a terrific expansion on what Stone normally does with their regular IPA and definitely has a slightly more diverse bouquet. I would prefer a little less bitterness and maybe a little more balance, but overall this is quite the terrific DIPA. Stone rarely disappoints and they sure as hell don't with this one.
