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.

Never had this series until now. 4/20/2016 IPA series.

OHH MMYY
Gold color
You can smell the Hops before you pop the top. OK not really.......
At first taste "crisp" would be the word. Hoppy?? Oh yes !!
Easy to drink ..which is dangerous at 9.7 % but HEY ! I'm not driving right now, so be it !!

Stone ..... In my subjective opinion, the beer made it to NJ still crisp fresh hoppy and drinkable.
AND for 9.7 and be drink-able?? I'll bet at the staff meeting the beer masters went:
"We're gonna get a few people toasted on this" HEHEHEHEHEHheheheh"

And ... And ...
4-20-2016 ??

COME ON man !!! Really........ 4/20 ?!!?!!!
Some dudes just bought it because it just says 4/20 (LOL!)

ANYWAY
Asking for the "feel " of the beer like in my other reviews is still personal !! IMHO


Continued Good brewing from these gentlemen...
And that's my review

12oz. 04.20.16 bottled on 03/15/16

Pours a clear gold with a creamy white foam head. Smells like big passionfruit, guava, mango, peach, bitter citrus, caramely bread malt, with dank pine and grass. Tastes like tropical guava, passionfruit, mild mango and peach, fresh citrus, boozy caramely bread malt, with bitter pine and dank earthy grass. Feels medium bodied, creamy with moderate carbonation. Overall a great DIPA.

A fantastic IPA from Stone, with a wonderful hops profile. I'm guessing the West Coast-style cascade strain is in here. Good citrus that don't overdo it on grapefruit flavors like some others.

Two week old Enjoy By 4.20.16 poured from bottle into snifter. Pours a gorgeous, clear gold with a thin white head that becomes a collar rather quickly. The lacing is spotty and webbed. Aroma is one area where Enjoy Bys typically shine and this is no exception. A lively bouquet of grapefruit, honey, malt, and citrus. The flavor is hop forward but does so mildly, with a round finish consisting of more grapefruit, melon, earth, and rich malt. The finish is wet and clean with a long bitter touch. The hops are not overdone and mix well with the rest of the palate. A great IPA.

Poured from a bottle not even 2 weeks old all the way over here in Beaumont, TX. 4/20/16 version woo hoo! Pours a slightly hazy medium gold ale color with the tiniest bit of carbonation. Smell is piney resin drops of dank if that makes any sense, and the taste follows suit with a bold refreshing flavor that quickly opens up your pallet but hides the 9+% deviously well. For some reason it wasn't kept refrigerated by HEB. Great job Stone, concept is a very welcome one in this craft beer market where many a retailer overstocks, ruining beers in the process.

I have had this man times before...but revisiting on Easter Sunday. Damn. This is really good. I can't think of a better DIPA regularly distributed in a bomber. Even better that it has come down in price in NorCal...bombers are now $5.99. Can't beat the QPR. Tasty for days!

4.20.16 good date choice guys. its a little sweeter, not quite as dank or funky this time, but really nice. did the abv go up a hair maybe? either way this is always excellent and deserves all the praise it gets. big ups to stone's marketing team or whoever came up with the title and concept. what a good idea.
