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.

13 oz tulip on draft. Great piney aroma off the start, fades as head disperses. Taste is a complex hoppiness, piney, citrus, earthy, musty. Great mouthfeel, with a nicely hidden 9.4%, but creates some dryness.

(Enjoy by 02.14.14) Beautiful woody hop aroma. The resin is off the charts. Pungent cat-piss and pine oil. When you think of the perfect IPA, this is the aroma that your brain imagines. The "dank" is strong with this one. Good color: very clear orange. Beautiful lace, decent head. The taste is spicy, resinous, glorious hops. You can tell that the hop is the cousin of cannabis in this flavor. It’s like liquid Mary Jane (although I never touch that stuff). The feel is smooth on the outside, sandpapery on the inside. It’s a fantastic beer; you can taste its youthful freshness. Love this idea by Stone.

stevoj (2553) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Perfectly hopped IPA, dark golden with small creamy head. Piney hops with a hint of citrus, smooth malt backbone and slick mouthfeel. Mild dry bitterness lasts on the tongue. Excellent!

Enjoy By (02/14/2014). Bottled on 01/09/2014 - Reviewed on 01/28/2014 Poured into a pint glass. Amazing clear golden color. AMAZING AROMA, same as previous Enjoy Batches. Tropical fruit explosion. Perfect combination of bitterness and malt balance with dry finish. I don’t know where they are hiding the 9.4%ABV Fantastic mouth feel, lingers perfectly.

GenDV138 (2666) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle (Enjoy By 02.14.14) poured into a tulip. Pours a golden yellow color with about a finger of off-white head. Tropical fruit on the aroma right off the bat along with light pine/resin, floral hops, dankness. On the taste, tropical fruit, citrus, pine/resin, floral hops . Medium body with a juicy sticky mouthfeel and bitter semi-dry finish.

dlovell2 (1010) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Enjoy by 2.14.14. Clear golden color with white head. Amazing aroma. Extremely fragrant hops aroma of Citrus, fruit, grass and pine. Sweet fruity malty base with big citrus and pine hops flavors. Great concept for a beer. The aroma of this beer I think is the most outstanding quality of this brew.

brigg (529) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 26, 2014
(Growler from d’vines on 1/26/14) Clear, constantly bubbling orange body with a small white head. Plenty of fresh hops: grapefruit, orange, pine/grass, some other fruit notes. Strong but smooth bitterness, fruity, bright, medium to strongly sweet. Soft carbonation that builds helps the oily body feel thin-to-medium at first but finishing thick. Very drinkable. Alcohol somewhat noticeable in the aftertaste.

Had this at the same time as the Perrin Anniversary Ale. Some I was with preferred this one. Some, including me preferred the Perrin. This is my favorite Stone that I have had. Most seem to be hops bombs that are not as balanced. I believe I prefer mine a bit milder with more citrus. This is still a good beer, and wish I had notes to comment more on.

A solid hop beer with a mastermind marketing campaign in the label! I have yet to really be able to tell a difference between the various batches, but I do love a fresh brew and this one is exactly that.

gripweed57 (855) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2014
22 ounce bottle. 02-14-2014 batch. Slightly hazy amber gold color with a small creamy white head. Fresh citrus/pine aroma. Notes of scallions and spearmint as well. Huge pine hop flavor right out of the gate. Sweet malt flavor pales in comparison to the overwhelming in your face big pine hops character. More green onion and spearmint in the taste. Some notes of parsley and black pepper. This is truly for devotees of Lord Lupelin.
