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.

Enjoy by 2.14.14 served in a Citizen Cider snifter.

A: Clear orange. There's something that rubs me the wrong way about filtered IPAs. Call me crazy, but hey.

S: Citrusy fruit, mostly mango for me.

T: Same as smell, very mango forward for me.

M: Adequate and supple.

O: I must say, this being my first Enjoy By experience, I was a bit disappointed. I had only heard good things from friends and BAs, but it's not quite as marvelous as I had expected. Perhaps it's because I'm inevitably comparing it to Abner or Heady, but it strikes me as a slightly better, more alcoholic version of Long Trail Limbo that cost me $7 a bomber rather than $10 a sixes. Anyway, I'm glad I tried it, I enjoyed it, and I will probably get another one at some point. Try it for yourself, because fresh IPA is hard to come by.

Having a 7/4/16 on the last day on 7/4/16 to review. Nice orange semi-cloudy color and 1 finger frothy head. Smell is nice citrus combined with some resiny Stone patented familiarity. A really nice hearty brew with solid amount of citrus and resin. Lots of warmth and bigness and chewiness to this beer, nothing watery going on. A full bodied DIPA if I've had one. A nice standard DIPA, but a tad pricy. Will still periodically buy as its always better than most other store options to bring home.

First reviewed in January, 2014; revisited as available. This review is Enjoy By 04.20.15.

Pours a deep gold color with a thick white head. A really good-looking beer. Good retention and lacing. Really citrusy, moderately bitter but not in-your-face about it. Medium body, nice level of carbonation. Alcohol is well-hidden.

I first had Enjoy By at Poe's Tavern on Sullivan Island SC, and it was an almost religious experience. Enjoy By is good from the bottle, but I think draft is superior.

Enjoy by 12.25.15 update: On tap at the Holy Hound in York, PA. Tulip glass. Nice clear orange-gold with a modest white head. Initial impression is a lot of citrus, tropical fruit, and pine. Very fresh and very good.
I think Stone must vary the Enjoy By recipe - each release is a little different. This was one of the better ones.

Enjoy by 02.14.14 IPA is a prisitine clear orange liquid topped with foamy light brown head that leave behind a nice foaming coating on the glass. The excellent appearance gives way to a strong sweet apricot hoppy nose that is simply delicious. On the tongue is it presents a strong hoppy bite. Behind that lies a fruity citrus that gives way to a wonderfully balanced lingering hop. In the mouth this beer is smooth, refreshing, clean and crisp. Quite simply this is a fantastic IPA. Certainly worth a night for the IPA lover. I don't advise is for a new drinker or non IPA person.
