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.

Pours a golden yellow, which is quite lovely. Head is foamy and white and retains well. Lacing is tight and everywhere. Tangerine, citrus, and dank hops form a juicy, hoppy aroma. Nice juicy dank and piney hop flavors with a bit of citrus and tangerine to back it up. Good balance, which leans on the bitter hoppy side. Mouth feel is a bit harsh on the carbonation side, but otherwise manageable. Not as full as other IPAs either. Overall, a good solid IPA. Didn't deliver as well as I thought it would (my first Enjoy By), but it's still quality.

Served in a 12oz snifter. Bottled March 14th. Drank March 26th. Enjoy By 4/20/16 version.

Enjoy By 04.20.16 bottled 03.15.16

Easily the best DIPA that i've had since I got turned onto the style, comes in an absolutely beautiful bottle that you really can't wait to open upon first sighting it in the store. I had the pleasure of spotting one in the singles cooler at my local bottle shop, have waited until i've had a few to give it a review. Pours with a thick white head which settles into a gorgeous thin layer of foam on top of this golden beauty. The smell of tropical fruit is strong and helps mask the massive 9.4% alcohol that you're about to consume. Lifting the glass to your lips, it starts with intense hops and bitterness, finishing dry and boozy as it goes down. Adjusting to the bitterness, you really start to get the citrus notes coming through and it turns into a truly amazing DIPA from a truly amazing brewery.

Poured a nice golden color into my snifter glass. The nose is perhaps a little muted but there is some soft citrus aromas coming through. The taste is better than the nose showed with strong citrus and tropical flavors going on here. The mouthfeel is smooth but there is a little bit of alcohol burn in the back of this. And since this was really fresh it is a better than average beer.

4.20 Honestly when I cracked it I hated it. Syrupy sweet finish. It killed it for me. Fortunately as this warmed up it came around in a big way.The warm citrus hops came through beautifully. Big IPA and delicious, among the best.

4.20.16, opened the first bottle a couple weeks ago, this is holding up fine with a couple weeks before the EB date.

Look is clear copper body with decent, off-white head. Dissipates rather quickly leaving some spotty lacing and a thin ring.

Smell is very piney. Dank and resinish, this is dominated by the hops early, with no sign of malts on the nose,

Taste is similar to the nose, except you get a biscuity, bready flavor rather early in the taste. It works really well with the sharp bitter notes. Citrus notes are somewhat hidden, but easily detected when you pay attention.

Feel is excellent, not too heave - which is how I think an IPA should be - but plenty of malt to balance out the hops. Very sticky, long finish. Great!

Overall, you can't go wrong with this one. Its in your face, but well rounded. Alcohol is not prominent, but this is still going to be a huge beer for anyone that doesn't have big beers regularly.

4-20-16. As I've come to expect from this series..., a great looking, smelling and tasting IPA from Stone. Crystal clear, an inch of head, wonderful lacing. Tropical and citrus hops, a sturdy enough malt backbone and just enough bitterness in the finish. Love it.
