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.

A true jewel of a Double IPA I found at a local market. Very fresh, clear and hoppy flavor. A slightly bitter finish - tastes very good. This is the kind of beer that makes California a great place to be a hophead. - Snowboards and IPA

Brilliant reddish golden color, great fresh floral and piney hop notes. Excellent. Had the 12-13-13 batch at the stone restaurant in Escondito. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12.13.13 on draft at Addison's in Columbia, Missouri. A very piney and citrusy aroma. Such a smooth and citrusy IPA. Honestly one of my favorites of the Enjoy By Series. Stone has done it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours golden with a rapidly folding head. Immediate aroma of pine and citrus. Taste builds to pine hoppy middle. Actually mellows at the end of the glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

From bottle to glass! 12-13-13 aroma is sweet like apricots and hops. Taste is sweet with a nice hop and malt flavo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brentv (401) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Enjoy by 12-12-13 (possibly 12-13-13?). A pint from the tap at a growler fill. Poured amber with a white head. Big citrus and floral aroma. Lots of malt, with a big in your face citrus floral hoppiness that is just so nice. This beer was wonderful. I bought a 32 oz grenade to share with friends, but it just might not make it until the party, and I’m not even an IPA guy.

Bottle--enjoy by 12.13.13. Piney aroma, and clear golden orange color. A tangy, hoppy bitterness, followed by pine and citrus sweet finish. The strong alcohol level does linger in the back of the mouth and throat, but just to let you know it's there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gmellison (426) - Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Had one over the summer but forgot to rate. 12.13.13 batch on tap at the mayor. Aroma is piney and skunky, with some grapefruit. Flavor is grapefruit, hops, with a sneaky bitter finish. Dope

Tap at Alehouse in SAMO. 12.13.13 batch. Not typically a huge IPA fan, but the citrus, apricot, and pine complement each other well. Hoppy, but not obnoxiously so. In all, the best IPA I've had in some time. Will revisit.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2014 Enjoy by 12.13.13. Bottle from Whole Foods Miami, South Beach. This is an ultimate IPA. Aroma is just amazing. Pine + fresh citruses. Taste similar. Lots of pine. Hops are very intensive. long bitterness, Although it has 9,4% alcohol, I don’t feel it at all. This is a sign of an amazing beer. Very drinkable for DIPA! I’m gonna say that. This is one of the best beers I’ve had so far!
