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.

Great citrus hop aroma. Pours clear golden orange with small white head that fades quickly. Definite grapefruit/citrus flavor, but also a touch of earthiness to it. Nice bittering - sligjtly high but great for an imperial. Alcohol is nicely balanced and well hidden. Awesome brew!

04-01-13 edition. Pour is a very yellow, similiar to a lager. The aroma is overpowering hops, consuming. The taste is big all the way through. Hits you up front big, and follows. Big bitter taste in the finish. A decent iipa, but not as good as some of the others I have had.

These comments are specifically towards the 4/01/13 batch. If you like hops on steroids, don’t bother. However, if you are hop geek, this maybe your ultimate beer. The hops are used so well for their flavor rather than just kicking you in the face. I consider this required drinking for any IPA drinker to really understand the value of hops.

Rando7 (736) - Iowa, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle pours clear light orange with small white head. Beautiful aroma of pine and citrus. Taste malty sweetness replaced rapidly by the hops. Finish resolves very quickly considering the hop content. Mouthfeel full with a chill from the hops. Alcohol well hidden. I’m not a big IPA guy but this is well done.

Westmeister (1749) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear orange with white head. Smell runs the gamete of hops. Citrus, pine, dank, fruity, and more dank. Sweet malts swirl. Taste is pow in your face hops with resin and dank coming to the forefront with the citrus tagging along. Booze is hidden. Moderate caramel maltiness. Very nice.

22oz bomber into a NOHO brewery vast stemmed dipa glass. enjoy by 4-1-13 on 3/9/13. Aroma is clean freshness, hops are fresh and strong, pine notes dominate, grapefruit lends in a hand, citrus takes a minimal stance with the pine freshness still overwhelming. such a clean drinker for a dipa, abv is pretty much not dectectable, and man this is a genuine brew as it feels it was just made. Color is meduim orange, bronzed peach and slight amber. Head doesnt retain that well, but the overarching cleanliness of this libation is exceeds all other ramifications. Easy mouthfeel with pine still ringing strong. It feels like a really good ipa, still had to fathom its a double. Glad I picked this one up and definately enjoyed it.

I drank the Enjoy By 04-01-13 IPA. Excellent IPA up there with Pliny! Up therewith Dreadnaught! Nice, dank aroma smells of pine and pot. All tongue consuming bitterness, met with a chalky nice aftertaste. Stone’s best!

FROTHINGSLOSH (4919) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2014 From the March 2013 3R6P tasting. +++ The 4/1/13 version. Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright golden color with a small soapy white head head that faded and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was very strong grapefruit with light orange and lemon and a touch of floral hops. The flavor was strong grapefruit and lemon with a strong bitter presence and a bit of bread underneath. Long bitter grapefruit and lemon finish. Medium body. Interesting.

Second batch Enjoy By 11.09.12. Bright orange color, super head and lace. Super juicy citrus and hops in the aroma, definite west coast. More citrus, pine, bitterness, typical west coast and typical stone. This is a good DIPA and I would expect nothing less from Stone. I sure hope we get another batch of this in Colorado at some point. Winner. Serving type: bottle 12-11-2012 02:19:24
