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.

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.

MattH (767) - California, USA - JUN 11, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2015 Bottle. Enjoy by 7/4/14. Light amber pour with a long lasting half inch white head. Strong hoppy aroma. Taste is a little sweet at first but becomes more bitter as you continue to drink. Carbonation is light and body is medium to heavy. Bottle. Enjoy by 10/31/15. Not much to this one. Aroma is light tropical fruits and resin. Taste is slightly bitter, with a little sweetness. Bitterness lingers on the tongue after drinking for a while. Body was lighter than I remember last time. Easy to drink. Overall, not too impressive. I will have to try this on tap sometime.

beerbaaron (1938) - Arizona, USA - JUN 10, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 Enjoy by 7/4/14 Really enjoyed this draft over the bottle I had the other week. Clear medium orange amber with a big frothy lasting white head. Big hoppy aroma. Big hop flavor. Lighter full body. Big fresh pine. Dank. Grapefruit. Floral. Some tropical. Caramel. Fair sweetness to balance the firm bitterness. Oily and soft. Palate adjusts after a few sips, but finish maintains its strong bitter hoppy character. Surprisingly smooth for its size, no booze. Really excellent.

Hops with dirt on ’em. Sour apricot, bitter grapefruit. A bit of woodsy smoky malt. Long, bitter finish. Jammy, fruity, dry, complicated fruit and hops. I can taste the rhizomes, it’s so fresh.
