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.

2-14-14 Bottle. Aroma smells kind of like a barnyard. Nice on the palate and good appearance, but taste isn’t great. Taste kind of like stale cereal. Maybe this was to close to the enjoy by date, but it wasn’t great. Here’s to the next batch.

On tap at Triangle Wine Co. Pours clear amber with a small white head. Aroma and taste are pretty similar, huge pine hops and a slight malty backbone. However, about halfway through, I started to notice a taste and aroma in it that was literally like dirt. Maybe it was just that pour, but it was definitely noticeable, whatever it was. Body is average and slick. Average-to-below average carbonation. Overall this is an okay IPA. I think it’s overrated because it has the name Stone on it. The 9/13/13 Enjoy By was much better than this.

13 oz tulip on draft. Great piney aroma off the start, fades as head disperses. Taste is a complex hoppiness, piney, citrus, earthy, musty. Great mouthfeel, with a nicely hidden 9.4%, but creates some dryness.

(Enjoy by 02.14.14) Beautiful woody hop aroma. The resin is off the charts. Pungent cat-piss and pine oil. When you think of the perfect IPA, this is the aroma that your brain imagines. The "dank" is strong with this one. Good color: very clear orange. Beautiful lace, decent head. The taste is spicy, resinous, glorious hops. You can tell that the hop is the cousin of cannabis in this flavor. It’s like liquid Mary Jane (although I never touch that stuff). The feel is smooth on the outside, sandpapery on the inside. It’s a fantastic beer; you can taste its youthful freshness. Love this idea by Stone.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2016 Perfectly hopped IPA, dark golden with small creamy head. Piney hops with a hint of citrus, smooth malt backbone and slick mouthfeel. Mild dry bitterness lasts on the tongue. Excellent! Rated: 2-4-14, 12-26-14, 4-20-15, 7-4-15, 10-31-15, 12-25-15, 4-20-16, 7-4-16

Enjoy By (02/14/2014). Bottled on 01/09/2014 - Reviewed on 01/28/2014 Poured into a pint glass. Amazing clear golden color. AMAZING AROMA, same as previous Enjoy Batches. Tropical fruit explosion. Perfect combination of bitterness and malt balance with dry finish. I don’t know where they are hiding the 9.4%ABV Fantastic mouth feel, lingers perfectly.

GenDV138 (5661) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle (Enjoy By 02.14.14) poured into a tulip. Pours a golden yellow color with about a finger of off-white head. Tropical fruit on the aroma right off the bat along with light pine/resin, floral hops, dankness. On the taste, tropical fruit, citrus, pine/resin, floral hops . Medium body with a juicy sticky mouthfeel and bitter semi-dry finish.

dlovell2 (1672) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Enjoy by 2.14.14. Clear golden color with white head. Amazing aroma. Extremely fragrant hops aroma of Citrus, fruit, grass and pine. Sweet fruity malty base with big citrus and pine hops flavors. Great concept for a beer. The aroma of this beer I think is the most outstanding quality of this brew.

brigg (605) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 26, 2014
(Growler from d’vines on 1/26/14) Clear, constantly bubbling orange body with a small white head. Plenty of fresh hops: grapefruit, orange, pine/grass, some other fruit notes. Strong but smooth bitterness, fruity, bright, medium to strongly sweet. Soft carbonation that builds helps the oily body feel thin-to-medium at first but finishing thick. Very drinkable. Alcohol somewhat noticeable in the aftertaste.

Had this at the same time as the Perrin Anniversary Ale. Some I was with preferred this one. Some, including me preferred the Perrin. This is my favorite Stone that I have had. Most seem to be hops bombs that are not as balanced. I believe I prefer mine a bit milder with more citrus. This is still a good beer, and wish I had notes to comment more on.
