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.

One of the best beers I have had. Tastes better than all other IPAs.

Pours a pellucid, reddish orange with an off-white froth. Wait, you mean it's not hazy!

Redolent with orange, citrus and pine.

Heavy on the hops up front of course, but plenty of fruit juice, caramel and spice to balance. And if that weren't enough, there's an encore wave of honey-like bitterness to finish.

Goes down medium and smooth, but you will not forget it's weight.

A complex and timeless DIPA for old school hop heads.

After having this beer on tap (today!), I believe this is easily the best IPA I've had so far.
It looks awesome in the glass, with a nice, dark golden orange color and a creamy head.
The smell is very tropical with citrus and pineapple right off the bat; the most wonderful hop aroma I've smelled so far.
The taste is exactly what you get in the nose, and the hop bitterness hits you in the front of the tongue but doesnt follow through to the back(which is nice), and the flavors invite you to sip some more (which I did!)
The feel is very smooth, not really heavy but not too light at the same time, very easy drinking for the 9.4%, which I couldn't even tell was there.
Overall, I'm glad that this was the first Stone beer I've tried, because we do indeed have Stone beers in Texas stores, yet I was afraid to try them. This is what a go-to double IPA should strive to be like. I'll definitely drink this again!

Clear amber with head that dies down. YUUUUGE aroma. Pine, grapefruit, sweet mango and peach in the aroma. I don't know what dank is in a beer, but the taste has powerful resiny spiciness, booze on the finish, assertive bitterness, and subdued bready malts. Incredibly intense and unique taste. A great DIPA. Heads and shoulders above Enjoy by Unfiltered.

Not sure why this particular date gets its own entry. I wonder why that is...

Nice head, great clarity, and an outstanding nose. Citrus and strawberry and dank.

Huge taste. A big, juicy, citrus hop bomb with a malt center and a piney finish and aftertaste. A lot is going on here. This is delicious and is eminently drinkable at nine point four.

Look- 4.5-Gold color, slight haze, white head that lasts a little while, lots of lacing.

Smell-4.25- citrus hops, mango, apricot, peach, boozy. Sweet malt mixing with the hops, but hop forward. Clean ferment smell. Retronasal follows up with the dankness.

Taste-4.75- follows the nose, sweet citrus up front with sweet fruit like mango and melon following up with a boozy taste. Lots of complex hop flavor melding with the malt sweetness. Dank hop bitter lingers but not overpowering.

Feel-4.25- medium carb, over medium body without being too heavy for the style. Alcohol warmth builds as pallet warms up. A slight creamy carbonation feel, not spritzy.

Overall-4.5- one hell of an ipa! Will buy again and again. No question.

Possibly the best beer I've ever had. I don't write reviews much, but this one blew me away so much I had to say something. Has the most complex, intense IPA flavor. The usual grapefruit, pine flavor but just more...interesting.

Copper color with white head / thin lacing.
This has the cat-piss element in the smell and in the taste (Citra?). Although not overwhelming, it affects the overall experience. Glad I got a chance to try it. Will not buy again.

enjoy by 4-20-17
bright clear amber with a nice white head
some good lacing and the head breaks down
but stays around.scents of pine are strong and fruit
notes as well. dank hoppy scent noted
pine, orang and grapefruit tastes, not real zingy
on the tongue.just a tad of sweeter fruitiness with later sips
dense , chewy mouthfeel.but a clean finish.nothing lingers
textbook example of the style imo.

-golden and clear with creamy white head.
-strong hoppiness, with slight flavoring of peaches and tropical fruit.
-gentle malt in advance, then it builds quickly to a surge of hops. danky af.
-polished with bitterness and dryness as it wraps it up.
