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.

biznizness (1070) - Mooresville, North Carolina, USA - APR 5, 2014
Can't do much better than this. 4-20-14 version. Has a little more sweetness in the finish than I expected, but tons of hops. A+ ipa.

Tstamba (212) - Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2014
On draft at Victoria Gastropub. Hazy golden hue with minimal head or lacing. Big hop presence full of citrus (pink grapefruit) and pine resin... Flavor follows well balanced with some booze on the back end. I really like this one!

sodakotakid (230) - Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA - APR 3, 2014
pours a nice orange/copper with a big fluffy white head. This is what an IPA should be to me. There is a lot of hops, pine and citrus, mostly grapefruit.

mp_lane (13) - Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2014
Bomber of 4-20-14. Clear amber pour, head is not too sticky. Aroma is subdued, but citrus-y. Flavor is very malt forward, and bitterness is not to overwhelming. Nice alcohol burn.

hockeybeerguy (909) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - APR 3, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a clear golden amber colored body with a one finger white foamy head that disappears at a moderate pace, speckled lacing clings a bit. The smell had a sweet yet bitter through pine, floral, hoppy, grapefruit tones. The taste had a bittersweet through previously mentioned flavors, grapefruit aftertaste, dry finish. On the palate, it sat at about a light to medium, semi-sessionable as the ABV seems to be well hidden, carbonated spot on. Overall, I’m glad I finally tried one of these Enjoy By IPA’s by Stone, as I won’t be shy to have one again, very good for the style and very good to me.

Alcohol too strong! Bitter, grapefruit taste and aroma. However all taste suppressed by booze.

SHIG (3447) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 2, 2014
Bottle Enjoy By 04-20-14: Poured a copper color with a finger off white fluffy head. Aroma is fresh juicy citrus/grape fruit hops. Taste is huge bold fresh hops of citrus and floral blast, followed by some mellowing.
