COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 bottle, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and beer fans. 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.

Outstanding. Definitely in my top ten. Hoppy, for sure, sweet, to a degree. Delicious: Hell yeah! Fruity, funky and hoppy. More piney than flowery, but easy drinking as it completely hides the alcohol (9.4%). If you haven’t tried it, do. It’s worth it.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a light white head. Aroma of earthy resinous hops. taste is sweet offset by spicy peppery resinous hops. very pronounced.

hay, resin, grass, spruce, alcohol, earthy, leather, leaves, golden, clear, minimal head, white foam, very bitter, full body, average carbonation, long finish, Enjoy by 4-20-14 does not disappoint. Very long finish, especially along the sides & tip of my tongue. Aromatic piney resin aroma immediately on cracking open the bomber; for some reason it took me back to fall of 1969 in Austin Texas (a lifetime ago) and walking into a basement apartment somewhere near 38 & 1/2 St, meeting this giant gnome sitting atop dozens of bricks of pot. "Wanna smoke some dope?" said the caterpillar man. Made a definite impression. As I said a lifetime ago; also reminds me of an evening around the spring of 1968 passing through a frat party (?) where the 13th Floor Elevators were playing. Strange associations come brewed in this bottle. Picked this up at Whole Foods at the Domain. I did not know when I purchased this there would be time travel involved.

This was Stone enjoy by 4-20 at Triangle Wine tap event in Southern Pines. It has a powerful aroma of grapefruit and other citrus flavors. It has a strong hops taste dominated by the grapefruit with a powerful citrus after taste. A wonderful Stone selection to try.

enjoy by 04.20.2014. lovely hops abound - citrus, pine, weed, lots of character. little to suggest the 9.4% hugeness considering that there is not much sweetness to the aroma, or in the initial impression on the mouth. a little malt appears but it drowns in hops bitterness with a nice acidic bite throughout. very nice beer, and i appreciate the effort to deliver supremely fresh stuff!

On draft at the ale house in Columbia. A medium amber beer with a small white head. Aroma is so good tons of pine and a sweetness that softens the pine almost perfect. A flavor bomb that is full of piney hops and vanilla sugar. A cold beer that makes your mouth feel warm and happy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

- points for the blatant dank/4:20 reference. A little on the nose for my taste.

Enjoyed from a growler at Perfect Pour in Maryland. Wow, the aroma is so prevalent you can taste it before it is on your palate. Clear amber orange with a thin tan head. Very clean satisfying taste. Mouth feel is smooth, broad across the tongue and pairs well with a fresh spicy steak salad. This is so satisfying. Well done!!

Enjoy by 04.20.14 bottle. Poured a crystal clear amber-copper color with a large off-white head. Great hoppy aroma with spruce, pine, and herbs. Taste has a surprising malty backbone with plenty of good hops. Loads of herb flavors with lots of spruce. Very crisp and refreshing, the alcohol is well hidden. Instantly one of my favorite IPAs.
