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 4/20/2016' sampled on 4/5/2016, poured from a bomber into a tulip.

L: Pours a clear medium golden color. Thick creamy off-white head that falls quickly. Great sticky lacing.

S: Dank tropical fruits and hibiscus... mango and citrus.

T/F: Rich malt backbone giving way to an awesome hop profile... citrus and tropical fruit notes dominate... grapefruit and lemongrass... warming with the high ABV. Medium body.... clean finish.

O: Another (after many other) amazing IPA's from Stone. Love the concept and how they put their money where there mouth is in regards to freshness. A great beer and one I'll have again (hopefully many many times).

Modestly superb. Mine was 'Enjoy By' 9/20/2014. Golden orange/amber and very aromatic. Nicely hoppy in the mouth, but not overly so.

It was somewhat sweet, but not '9.4 ABV sweet', and the sweetness didn't last long in the mouth, fortunately.

If I had to go all night, I would likely not quaff these one after another. But if I had to limit my intake to a single bomber, and I often do, this one is at or near the top.
