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.

Bomber of 4-20-14. Clear amber pour, head is not too sticky. Aroma is subdued, but citrus-y. Flavor is very malt forward, and bitterness is not to overwhelming. Nice alcohol burn.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a clear golden amber colored body with a one finger white foamy head that disappears at a moderate pace, speckled lacing clings a bit. The smell had a sweet yet bitter through pine, floral, hoppy, grapefruit tones. The taste had a bittersweet through previously mentioned flavors, grapefruit aftertaste, dry finish. On the palate, it sat at about a light to medium, semi-sessionable as the ABV seems to be well hidden, carbonated spot on. Overall, I’m glad I finally tried one of these Enjoy By IPA’s by Stone, as I won’t be shy to have one again, very good for the style and very good to me.

Alcohol too strong! Bitter, grapefruit taste and aroma. However all taste suppressed by booze.

SHIG (3454) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 2, 2014
Bottle Enjoy By 04-20-14: Poured a copper color with a finger off white fluffy head. Aroma is fresh juicy citrus/grape fruit hops. Taste is huge bold fresh hops of citrus and floral blast, followed by some mellowing.

jrodooo5 (807) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 2, 2014
2-14-14 batch - unfortunately a month & 1/2 past the date. Nevertheless, good cloudy orange pour w/ a big white head that leaves a lot of lacing. The aroma is a good hop concoction of citrus & pine. The mouthfeel is smooth for an ipa! The fruity flavors make this very drinkable w/out leaving much bitterness at all lingering. Pretty tasty & nearly sessionable at 9.4%. Just makes me wonder how much better this beer was "fresh."

The massive grapefruit and fruit rind nose is a powerful precursor of things to come. This is a powerhouse DIPA in the spirit of Stone’s epic Ruin Ten DIPA. Biting and slightly astringent hoppiness featuring Grapefruit, orange and orange rind, and some pepper, gradually blend into the soft sweet malts that underpin the big taste. A work of art!

BennyBinion (18) - Canyon, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2014
A beautiful hoppy aroma. Pours a light golden amber with a bright yellow-white head. Starts smoothly with a delicious piney flavor. A truly fantastic double IPA that lives up to its label, "devastatingly dank".

Enjoy by 4/20/14. Clear light amber, golden, pour with a very nice head and long retention lacing. Nose of sweet citrus (mango, orange) over a light grapefruit and earthy dankness background. Light medium bodied with a slick texture. Normally carbonated with no effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is a blend of hop flavors over a slight biscuit sweetness with a low level of bitterness. It begins with the sweet citrus flavors which are soon overpowered by the dank earthy hop components. While complex, the flavor is heavily "dankcentric" - lol. On the smooth finish, you get a bit of biscuit sweetness flowing into the dankcentric vortex coupled with a nice residual alcohol tingle at the back of the throat. An exceptional beer that those which wonder what dank means should try.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 I’ve received some cool birthday presents in my life, but I can’t recall receiving a gift that I’ve loved as much as the green bottle that said Enjoy By 4.20.14 IPA. This is a beer that I’ve wanted to have for a long-ass time. When the opportunity finally came along in the form of a belated present, I feared that it couldn’t possibly live up to my expectations. Man, was I wrong. The first whiff of piney and citrusy hops was enough to make me fall in love. But I was just getting started. My tasting of Enjoy By IPA revealed woodsiness, grapefruit tartness, and a HUGE peppery spice. True to the West Coast fashion, Stone makes some aggressively-hopped ales. Enjoy By IPA has every bit of that manic power, yet, it’s smooth and reserved in a way that I couldn’t have imagined. Dank and potent - yes. However, this beer isn’t the least bit punishing. It’s an amazing experience to have a beer that’s been brewed to be enjoyed fresh. Thanks to the 4.20,14 release of this beer, I’ll have another date to remember: 3.31.14. At this point in time, Enjoy By IPA is my favorite beer.

From the tap poured an amber color with asmall amount of head. Strong hoppy flavor with a quick finish.
