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.

As a general rule there is no perfect beer. However, in my short craft brew career this one is pretty damn close. Let my brother-in-law try it on a whim. He always says "I hate craft brews. I’ll take a Bud Light any day." Had him try this one...and I quote "That is the best beer I have ever tasted." If you haven’t had the pleasure, find a local store who had it and GET IT! You won’t regret it.

Enjoy by 5-16-14 bomber from CANBIF 2014. Clear amber with a faint off white head that mostly fades. Lots of tropical hops, some lighter citrus notes, semi-sweet with some booze, fairly malty, moderate+ carbonation with a full body, nice combination of sweet and bitter, slightly astringent, boozy, tasty, mmmmm.

Super intense and fresh IPA. It doesn't get much better than this when it comes to IPAs. You don't even notice that it's almost coming in at 10% ABV.

The pour is nice and crisp. The head is nice and light, and quickly fades but leaves a nice ring in the glass. The taste this year on the Enjoy By 4\20 is tops of my hoppy love. I really don’t think hopslam too far behind but the finish is great as well. Recommend sooo highly!

Big bold citrus hops with a nice mellow lingering bitterness. Big and beautiful. Well done

I have had this beer several times - both bottle and tap. Always delicious. Pours a light copper with white head. Nose and flavor is tons of citrus and floral. Just wish it wasn’t so high in alcohol.

Oh no. I am enjoying this beer after 4/20. I have failed Stone Brewing Company. Pours an orange color with a great citrus atoms. Some great hop and pine flavors mixed with some grapefruit. I like this beer!

VoodooBear (49) - San Juan, PUERTO RICO - APR 26, 2014
Presentation: 22 oz. brown bottle with the 05/16/14 "Enjoy By" date right on the label. Served in a Sam Adams pint glass. Appearance: Perfect clear, bright, gold color. It develops a robust head that quickly goes away and leaves just a thin ring. The lacing is incredible, covering the whole glass and slowly sliding away. Smell: Big citrus, hop aromas of pine, grapefruit and spices attack the nose. The smell is very good and very important to the overall experience. Taste: The citrusy grapefruit taste is right at the front along with some pine and spicy pepper notes. There’s also an alcohol sting at the end thanks to a 9.4% ABV that gets stronger and more noticeable as the beer warms. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. It’s smooth and very refreshing when cold. It only gets smoother as it warms up. Overall: It was a big deal for Puerto Rico’s craft beer scene getting this. Believe the hype, it’s simply incredible in every aspect. Hophead or not, you need to give this beer a try. It should be noted that in order for this beer to be enjoyed fully it should be had slowly. The taste and texture both change the warmer it gets.

Delicious. The only thing I’d mention is watch out because of the abv. It’s delicious and is worth getting just to smell it. I might have smelled more than sipped.
