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.

TheHopster (1032) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2014
(Enjoy by 07.04.14) Consumed within two weeks of the "bottled on" date. Impressive for a NJ suburb considering the distance. The aroma was not a strong as anticipated. Like a mild pine breeze. The golden appearance is extremely clear (anticipated less filtering) but contains a thick persistent white head. The flavor is actually a very smooth. There is no missing the piney hops, but there is some sweetness for balance. Slight note of alcohol. Finishes slightly bitter. Very well crafted and great concept.

haukur (1624) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 13, 2014
Enjoy By 0704, bottled 05/28. Aroma is MASSIVE, pine, starfruit, grapes. Just awesome resiny and with a huge bite. This is a monster!

acearl (469) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2014
7.4.14 clear golden pour with creamy white head, good lacing, smell tropical hops, passionfruit, somewhat sweet, medium body, very light carbonation, smooth, alcohol is pretty well hidden, tropical juice\punch but not over done and not too sweet, mild bitter lingering aftertaste that is a slight hinderance to this being great could be described as peppery which contradicts the the Hawaiian Punch, but overall very nice, definitely worth...

IndianaRed (3485) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Enjoy By 07-04-14 Slightly hazy deep golden with a full lasting sandy head. Big piney aroma, lots of resinous and a bit peppery hop bitterness. More on the bitter than the fresh hop flavor. Balanced well and a good, big, IPA

Bebum (688) - - JUN 13, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2016 Gold, crystal clear, lacy. Full body, rich and smooth, almost oily mouthfeel, intense flavor and heat, spritzy, long palate. Bitter but very well balanced by the malt. Very hoppy in a herby style, malty. Delicious. Enjoy By 4/20/15; 10/31/15, 4/20/16. Deep gold, clear, some lace. Very full body, intense flavors, rich and hot mouthfeel, medium carbonation, lingering and fruity aftertaste. Heavily bittersweet, balanced. Exuberant hops, herbal, grapefruity. More than imperial, celestial IPA.

Enjoy By 07.04.14 Enjoyed on 6.11.14 6.12.14 and to be enjoyed again This is the best IPA I’ve ever had. May even be the best beer I’ve had to this point. Huge nose of tropical fruits and subtle pine that cascade out of the glass. Flavor profile is tropical fruits and a really nice grapefruity bitterness that lingers for a while. I wouldn’t know this was 9.4% if the bottle didn’t tell me...the alcohol is hidden by the explosiveness of the beer’s tropical fruit flavors. This is a powerhouse adult beverage and should not be missed.

Tselloufc88 (317) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle from Petaluma Market. Enjoy by 07-04-14 edition. Pungent grapefruit aroma fills the room from this. Some alcoholic smell in there too. Massive grapefruit and peachy flavour with tonnes of bitterness they lives for a while. A touch of alcoholic burn in the finish which reminds you of the high strength. Tasty and incredibly fresh. Pleased I got to try this whilst in California.

I had a few glasses of the enjoy by 07-04-14 and was absolutely blown away by this beer. This is the perfect IPA. Stone knows how to make this style perfect. Flawless in fact. This is no exception. So much tropical fruit, piney resinous aroma fills the air. The taste is just nuts. So much going on here. Just incredible stuff. I don’t really get too excited about many beers, it takes a really good one to do that and this was a surprise. I had no idea what to expect going into this one and I was pleasantly surprised. Get this on tap and drink like 5.

Fantastic beer. Mine was from the 7-4-14 batch. Strong, hoppy flavor, that lingers. Not terribly bitter, but just enough so you don’t forget it was there. Very planty, but not unpleasant. Nice aftertaste of rich hops. Very fresh.
