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.

drowland (6754) - Georgia, USA - DEC 11, 2013
12/11/13. 22oz bottle from Grassroots. Turd from shelf aroma. Barely made the date cutoff on this one. Almost waited a few days because fuck Stone. You heard me. Also, ScottPurchase is obviously an alias and plagiarizes texts in his rates. Okay, down to business, I guess. Super clear orange pour, slightly darker than orange, I guess, under a nice off-white head that sticks and laces well. Looks good, I suppose. Rich hop aroma, sweet and floral, very floral, with touches of dankness, resin, pine, and grapefruit zest. Surprisingly sweet flavor, malt definitely coming through, some sweet caramel and doughiness, mild balancing hop bitterness definitely shows up, but could use more in my book to help cut the sweet. The hop character accentuates the sweetness in many ways. Some juicy fruit aspects (literally, not the chewing gum), with orange and grapefruit popping out as well as earthy, green hops, pine, more floral and sweet aspects. The bitterness lingers on the tongue slightly and grapefruit pith sits on my tongue. Not bad.

Enjoy by 12-13-13. Bomber to tulip, pours a copper with nice head. Smell is amazing with dank and pine, lots of citrus as well. This is my favorite beer! Different than the other Enjoy Bys. I wish this one was year round. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12.13.13 bomber $5.49 bought on sale at Binnys (3rd one ;-) ) As of 12.7.13 they still had a few cases left. Stone definitely ramped up production on this one for it was readily available. Couldn’t believe it, as every other edition before was so hard to find/get. Pours a cloudy golden color with a 1 finger head that settles quickly leaving a thin white ring and little sticky, bubbly islands floating about. Big pine notes followed by some malt & biscuit aromas on the nose. Great balance of malt, then a nice bite of hop bitterness. Awesome brew.

jimhilt (2465) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 7, 2013
09.13.13 version. Pours a two finger off-white head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Light hazy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Grapefruit hop nose and flavor is nearly sweet grapefruit and some pineapple, lingering grapefruit aftertaste. Higher ABV is hidden. $6.99 for a 22oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Marlboro, MA.

This review is for the 12-13-13 because I was just recently talked in to rating beer. I’ve had all of them and this is the best one to me. Draft. Yellow color with a white head. Floral and citrus hop light in the nose. Bright bitter pine hop flavor. These are getting better.

on tap at Sheraton 4 points LAX 12.13 enjoy by Clear Orange color, short white head. Some visible carbonation. Bold nose. Lots of pine and grapefruit. Very forwards and aggressive. Full of resin and bitterness. Touches of aspirin and a bit chalky though. Nice but needs more balance

Oregon_butcher (60) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Golden yellow color, good IPA carbonation, smells pungent of simcoe or summit, sweet dank like garlic. Taste is overwhelming dank hops to an excess. I love a hoppy beer but this is alittle odd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Batch 8-2-13...on tap at Lowry Beer Garden. Pours golden with small head. Aroma of pine hops. Moderate carbonation and big mouthfeel. Flavors of piney hops, sweet malt. Flavors of candy cane, grapefruit, citrus. Overall very tasty, bright, like an Altoids mint with a touch of alcohol and pine sap.
