    The next round of STONE ENJOY BY 10.31.16 TANGERINE IPA released today.

    Oh please shock everyone and go the Hazy, New-England Style route on this one......

    In all seriousness, Stone could definitely pull this off on a grand scale. Hey, nobody thought Lagunitas Principal Owner Tony Magee would change his mind on canned beer.

    Pretty sure they released this earlier this year or late last year.

    @Shmuffalo, yes I was just hoping this next round of Tangerine would get a little hazier :slight_smile:

    I personally liked both the May & July editions of the Stone Enjoy By Tangerine.

    I wish I had them to compare side to side to see if they altered the recipe at all. That being said, I don't really care, this is an amazingly delicious brew!

    It's good, not great, think Sculpin, Orange Sculpin but stronger
    I would buy again but not at $15.00 $10.00 yes,
    I just have a problem with $15 sixers although at 9.4% it packs a whallop

    Great beer, just don't think the Tangerine is necessarily a worthwhile edition to the Enjoy by Lineup. I'll take my "regular" Enjoy by or Unfiltered over this any day.

    Thank you for continuing to shift to 6-packs Stone. This is one of the best deals in the beer world! Next year, Since
    Stone IRS in 6-packs???

    You can get the orange citrus hit using Centennial hops. I'd suppose what you would get might be the cousin of Two Hearted Ale, or Founders Centennial.

    Glad you're able to track down the 6-packs on this one! No current plans for 6-pack release of Stone Imperial Russian Stout, but we'll be sure to let you know if and when we do.

    Just grabbed a six pack today. I prefer the six pack format so much more than bombers.

    Honestly wouldn't be able pick out that it was a tangerine IPA but at almost 10% this is one of the most drinkable double IPAs I've had.. woulda guess it was closer to 7% if I was trying it blind. Really been digging the last few enjoy by releases.

    I had a few of these over the weekend. An enjoyable beer, but nothing that stands out (which is just plain hard to do nowadays with so many options out there). I won't go grabbing another 6 pack, but it's something I'd be fine drinking if it's on a menu somewhere.

    I am enjoying this tangerine variant more than the one that came out last spring.

    This beer is criminally easy to drink. It goes down faster and easier than most 7% IPAs. I like it, but not as much as regular or unfiltered Enjoy By's. It doesn't quite have the bitter edge that I love.

    I'm really loving these Enjoy By releases, and this one is no exception. I really appreciate the fact that the tangerine doesn't bowl you over and is more of a suggestion than simply a flavored-version of the base beer.

    The only con I can think of is their price point - about $17 - $18 a sixer in SE Michigan.

    Woof... I've seen it around 15-16 most places in Austin, but plenty of places have it at $12.99

    $7.39 here for a bomber. I wouldn't call it overpriced, even though I prefer some of the other Enjoy By beers more than this offering.

    Drinking the 3rd bottle currently and I like it a good bit better than the first two. Up there with the rest of the Enjoy By beers.

    So Dark Lord is over rated and over priced? Please share your feelings, I'm curious to hear your insight on Dark Lord.

    I drank one bottle of the six pack and returned the other five to the store. Only the second time I've done that in the last 14 years. At $16 plus tax for a six pack, I'm not drinking the other five bottles if I didn't like the first. Needless to say, I was greatly disappointed by this beer. it just wasn't for me.

    It's pretty obvious that you just want to argue with people. Maybe you should do something producive.

    Just finished the last of my 10-31-16 and really enjoyed it, thought it was a good batch for sure. Time for some new ones.
    Cheers Stone!

    Is it just me or did this batch get a wider distro than the previous ones? I can still find it at several stores.

    There seems to be more around. But my local source was down to 4 singles this past weekend. I really like the unique Enjoy By concept. Great big numbers up front regarding freshness, they rotate the varieties, and offer bombers and singles. Oh, and it's outstanding beer, as well. This is the third Tangerine this year, and instead of a sixer, I bought two singles. Some bought for the novelty, and won't repeat. Some will load up. I bet Stone is really trying hard to dial in the demand. November is the Regular and December repeats the Unfiltered, which disappeared post haste the first time. Hopefully, Stone makes more and we won't have to hustle to grab some. I got one single from batch #1. As long as they keep up the Regular Enjoy By, I believe I'll keep buying. And when the vary off Regular, I'm game, for at least once. It's a buyers market. We will set the demand, and they will adjust the supply. As it should be.

    Picked up a bottle in SW Iowa on November 1 for $5. Was put in the clearance section cause of the date. But it was bottled on 9/27 and to be drank in 37 days. Worked out well for me. Delicious.
