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.

Rating an Enjoy by 12.25.15... bottled on 11/18/15
*First 'Enjoy by' for this fella. Pretty stoked.

Eyes: A light golden color. Poured with a 3 finger head. About a 4 minute retention.

Nose: Pine, mango, tangerines, hibiscus, white grape. Very sweet and herbaceous.

Taste: Very sweet. Honey syrupy goodness. Grains of paradise is prominent (even if it wasn't used). Coriander and lemon zest on the back end.

Body/Feels: Thinner than I thought. Sticky and boozy. Although the 9.4% is masked very well. I would have pinned it closer to 8%.

Overall: I was hoping it would be a little more on the piney/bitter end of the IPA spectrum. But for being on the other side, its very good. You can't go wrong with a stone IPA, and the Enjoy by Series seems to be top-shelf, and decently priced. If you're an experienced beer (IIPA) consumer, this won't knock your hops off. But its tasty, refreshing, and damn good.

Peace

Stone Enjoy By 12.25.15 IPA
22 oz brown bottle
Bottled 11/18/15
Served in a 20 oz Samuel Smith's glass

Pours yellow into the glass with a bronze tint. A thin white head forms on top and quickly begins to leave trails of sticky lacings. The lacings become webbed as they cling to the side of the glass.

The nose is magnificent with whiffs of citrus fruits and a bouquet of fresh flowers.

My first sip unveils a sweet and syrupy biscuit backbone and then comes a full blown hop assault on my palate. Flavors of clementine orange, key lime, lemon and Ruby Red grapefruit. There is also black pepper bite and hop resin presence in there too.

The mouthfeel is awesome, this is a hop bomb masterpiece.

First time trying an Enjoy By...have to say I'm impressed

Emptied the bomber into a chilled glass and was pleasantly surprised at how well the head held up (considering it being an IPA). Color is on point with what you'd expect from the style: Orange/amber.
Smells pleasant, reminds me of a christmas tree. Great flavor with Pine, Citrus, and a slight Floral after bite.

Overall a fantasitc IPA - - - Has that fresh hoppy flavor you'd expect, yet isn't overly bitter, which gives each one of the flavors a chance to be noticed.
