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.

lefossoyeur (490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Batch 02-14-14. Clear golden with almost no head, just a very thin veil. Aroms is mostly grape, soapy with a touch herbal. Medium body, low carbonation, big Nelson sauvignon signature with lots of grape, grassiness and finishes on this grapy note. Not their best in this series of Enjoy By... 7-3-7-3-13 Had to re-reate this with the fantastic batch 4-20-14 Super nice berry/tropical fruit profile. Passion fruit all the way. Absolutely awsome 2IPA in this version. 9-4-9-3-17

bursprak (979) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2014
Enjoy by 04.14.14. Extra aqcuired in a trade. Shared 22 oz bomber. Pours clear light bronze with a medium head. Nose is full of tropical fruits, peaches, pineapple and grapefruit. Taste is hoppy/fruity upfront, again grapefruit and some passionfruits as well. After the refreshing start the bitterness really kicks in, like a punch in the face. Finishes really bitter with some sweet notes. Enjoyed it but a bit to bitter and unbalanced to rate it higher.

radio_nowhere (1014) - Maryland, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Enjoy By 02-14-14 bomber into snifter glass, amber’ish golden color with off-white head. Aroma of strong dank citrus (grapefruit, lemon, orange) and piney hops with slight malt sweetness. Taste is certainly a hop bitter hit, adding some earthiness to citrus/pine (resin) notes, some spiciness, slight nuttiness and light caramel malt sweetness. Medium body, low carbonation, dry, crisp, slightly oily with bitter hop finish. This lives up to the hype, great fresh hoppy DIPA.

Maxbier (573) - Maryland, USA - FEB 1, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2014 2.14.14 straw yellow color white head. Amazing floral piney aroma, great aroma with at least twice the intensity of your average IPA. malty sweetness balanced perfectly by Stones signature pine hop punch. The first sip out of the glass is great and with each sip it gets better and better. I like to pair beer with food, and I am sure this beer would pair nicely, but it would be unfair to your taste buds to focus on anything other than this IPA. Cleanse your palate pour and enjoy. they should call this one Ruination because it has ruined me for most other IPAs

islay (1376) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Majority of a 22 oz. bottle, consumed on 1-29-14. Stone Enjoy By 02.14.14 IPA (consumed 2.5 weeks prior to enjoy by date). Very strong, superb, highly appetizing aroma features peach, pine, cat urine (not in a bad way), rhubarb, raspberry, peaches and cream, and apricot scents. A bit vegetal and fruity/floral in the smell. Complex, strong, and wonderful aroma. One of the best smelling beers I’ve ever encountered. Pours a clear, deep gold, the slightest bit orange. A ruby or copper hue. Shiny liquid. Small amount of beige head. Very appealing look. A little more interesting head would have earned the appearance a 5. Dry, hoppy taste features pine, lemon, lemon peel, orange, and apricot flavor elements. A sweet, creamy, sugary undertone. Shortbread cookie. A touch of alcohol in the taste. Spicy and bitingly dry finish. If I have any criticism of the flavor, it is that the beer may be a little too flavorful, if that is possible. Medium to heavy body. Crisp, quite lively, and a bit oily (in a good way) in the palate. Filling yet drinkable. Long, dry aftetaste that could stand to be even stronger. Superb palate effects. Stone Enjoy By 02.14.14 is a GREAT beer, one of the best I have ever had. I can’t ask for much better than this. I am blown away. It really is awesome. I would buy a case if I could somehow preserve the flavor. I had high hopes, and this beer just trounced them. It is a brilliant and beautiful beer. Frankly, I am going hard on it by giving it short of a perfect score.

SpringsLicker (3220) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 30, 2014
02 14 14 Pours clear gold with a tall mostly white head. Pine resin hop aroma. The flavor is bitter citrus hop and pine resin, balanced by a firm, yet behaved malt support. Doesn’t get all sticky and sweet. Nice. Completely hides the alcohol.

Enjoy by 2-14-14 Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Smells of grapefruit, lemon zest, spruce. Taste is bitter and moderately sweet - citrus and piney hops followed by a dash of sweet malt. Robust
