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.

This is my review for the Enjoy By 12 21 12, on draught.

This beer is my favorite of the moment. Tremendously tasty.

This pours a warm glowing-amber golden in color with thin foam & lacing that lingers around for the long haul. Great aroma, full of orange citrus and marmalade, some tangerine, a bit of pine. It’s pleasing & hoppy, big & vibrant, fresh smelling and full of gobs of hops.

Tastes amazing—the flavor is layers of hop heaven with a bitter bite at the end of each sip. There’s pine and citrus and tangerine and orange and grass and an underlying dankness which I just love.

There’s enough of a malt profile to hold up to the hoppy assault with a light toasted biscuit note that emerges as it warms. Holds up as a sipper but its also an easy drinker and hides the ABV well.

22 oz bottle was poured into a snifter. Best by 7/4/14.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Super notes of tropical, citrus, grassy, resiny pine, and herbal hops. All followed by caramel and some toasted malts.

Taste: Same as above with mild tingly bitterness and slight hint of alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, balanced, very mild bitterness,

Overall: Wow. Top Notch Superb beer. Nuf ced.

A: Lighter shade of yellow-amber. Slightly hazy. Forms a large, fluffy, off-white head that has good retention and leaves a good amount of lacing on the way down.

S: Aroma is all hops, but not as powerful as expected. Never-the-less, the aroma is all hops: citrus, lemon, pine, and a bit of hoppy spice.

T: Light malts and a bit of biscuit. Then the hops kick in. Lemon, peppery spice, pine, and some citrus. There is a bit of a white grape quality, maybe some Nelson Sauvin in the mix?

M: On the heavier side of medium. Moderate bitterness. Mild dryness. Appropriate carbonation.

O: A very nice beer. Full on West Coast style IIPA.

Enjoy by (4.1.13) IPA pours a clear light amber color with a moderate creamy head on top. The foam fades slowly leaving behind a fair amount of netted lacing on the glass.

The aroma has lots of orange and grapefruit citrus, plus pine and caramel malt.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is creamy with light to moderate carbonation. The flavor begins with hops, mainly orange citrus and pine. The middle has sweet malty notes of caramel and bread. It finishes moderately bitter with an earthy grassy flavor. Once gone the caramel and orange citrus lingers on the palate.

I like the idea of this beer suggesting a 'fresh by' date. I just made it with the bottle I had.

This is a really great DIPA. Just finished the "Enjoy by 05/17/13. Everything I would look for in a DIPA.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color. A hard pour gives a medium sized whit frothy head with good retention and some lacing.

Great aroma of piney hops.

Taste is great as well, mostly piney hops with some floral hops. Bitterness is just right. This one ranks up there with Pliny the Elder, Blind Pig and other great DIPAs.

Mouthfeel is rich and crisp with just the right bitterness and even a soft pillowy feel.

This one is top shelf; Great offering from Stone.

Seventh Batch - 05.17.13

22oz bottle served in a snifter.

L - chill hazed bright brass color with a white head that thins out leaving a few spots of thin lacing.

S - sinus clearing tropical and citrus fruit blast to the brain.

T - sweetness and bitterness all wrapped up together in each delightful sip.

F - medium bodied, it drinks pretty easy for the ABV, slow down!

O - very good beer that I will seek out in future <FRESH> releases.

On tap at Verona Inn. A truly remarkable IPA. This one stands out. Bursting with flavor and freshness, the taste really hits home and is evident on this one. Strong dank, resinous hop presence throughout. Unique in my opinion. Recommended.
