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.

WOOF! Holy wow this is some strong hoppy hoppiness! The aroma has a bite that is equally matched by the hoppy bite of the flavor. Pine,citrus, strong bitter.

ausomeawestin (151) - Maryland, USA - OCT 22, 2013
enjoy by 11.12.13 aroma of pine, citrus, mango, papaya, flowers, freshly cut wood. incredibly pungent pine tones, wow. pours a clear bronze with large foamy white head. impressive retention but little lacing. tastes of pine, spruce, pine sap, touches of pineapple, mango, some grapefruit in bitterness. the minimal sweetness is of honey and fruit. palate is clear and crisp yet full and well bodied, another perfect palate by stone. alcohol is noticeable on the palate, and accentuates the bitterness of the brew. overall, ’enjoy by’ is another joy by stone. incredible pine character, matched with tropical fruit, making for an impressive aroma and taste.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Enjoy by 11/12/13. High acidity, acrid, and plastic. With this hop profile all I get is an acetate aroma and taste, nasty. A copper color with little to no head. Some hop profiles in DIPA’s give me an acute plastic aroma and taste, this one does that perhaps more than any I can remember and I find it undrinkable.

thetmaxx (772) - West Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Enjoy by 10.25.13. Aroma is fruity and floral, lots of citrusy notes. Flavor is similar, very typical of a fresh hopped beer. Palate is thick and oily, but not as dry as I might expect.

The enjoy by varieties are my favorite beers. The one I have now is close to the expiration date so its a teeny bit cloudy but for the most part it’s generally clear with and slight Auburn hue. It’s crisp with a light hoppy tang and just the right amount of bitterness.

Overall a great ipa that can be enjoyed any season. I would like it it had a little more barly and a little less citrus.

xBEERxNOLA (72) - - OCT 20, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Appearance - gold color. Slightly murky. Smell - nice hoppy smell. Slightly piney. Not as strong of an aroma as others. Slight citrus. Taste - fresh flavor. Grapefruit bitter flavor. Aftertaste dies quick bit after drinking a few sips the flavor starts to linger. Not as complicated as I thought it would be. Mouthfeel - not very carbonated. Nice. Overall - great. Would buy again. Not sure if drinking on 10-20 when it's best but 10-25 makes it more like another stone but it was still good. I think I like more citrus flavor.

50belair (2929) - Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Enjoy by 10/25 on draft at the Brass Tap. Crystal clear burnt orange pour with a white head. Melon hop aromas. Delicious grapefruit and tropical fruit hop highlights. Well balanced with a sturdy caramel malt backbone. Above average body and mouthfeel. This is a really nice IPA....

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - OCT 19, 2013
11/12/13 Version. Ar: Big punch of resin - onion and pine - woody, grapefruit. Ap: Golden, crystal-clear - large white head with excellent retention, a thick, rocky cap of foam. T: Sticky hops - tons of resin, pine, and grapefruit - high bitterness - medium-sweet, with a clean cracker malt flavor - onion and grapefruit mix with a floral punch on the finish - long and lingering, but clean, bitterness. P: Medium body with high carbonation - finish is dry. O: Absolutely delicious - one of the best 2XIPAs I’ve had in quite some time.

The most fresh, devastatingly complex, claws out, brutish and artisan IPA ever to bend against those lips of yours. If you’re wondering, I liked it.
