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.

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 (4943) - 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

My buddy turned me onto this beer. I'm glad he did. This enjoy by 4/1/13 was a great batch. This ipa tasted like a lite ipa even though it was over 9% abv. Great on the palate. Next time it's released I'd go get a case. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4/1/13 version on draft. Pours clear golden orange with a white head. Dank and stinky, with citrus, pine, and... uh... weed, I guess. Medium sweetness, and not as much bitterness as I expected. Fresh and flavorful.

04-01-13 in bomber, consumed on 03-08-13. Pours a glowing orange with a minimal white head, with a slightly syrupy appearance. Nose is primarily grapefruit with a bit of pine and some floral characteristics. Flavor is pretty much the same. This strikes me as a unique IIPA by virtue of the degree to which grapefruit flavors are apparent. I like it a lot.

JLLSU (238) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2013
UPDATED: APR 23, 2013 Bomber--> New Belgium globe. Pours a light orange with a moderate head and some spidery lace. Smells of all the things you want from a quality IPA- citrus rind and some bubblegum. Taste is very bitter tropicals with some pepper. Very nice palate with moderate body and good carb. Tastes like a more bitter version of their normal IPA (which I really like). 5-17-13 version: Same glass. Pretty thick two finger head with sticky lace. Aroma is kind of sweet and grassy with resiny pine. Tastes kind of malty sweet with nice bittering balance. Not very noticeable tropical or citrus notes. Nice bubbly carbonation with a medium palate. I think I like this version better than last month’s.

On tap at pizza plant. Pours a golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is sweet with citrus and fruit. Tastes sweet up front with the orange and malt dominating that section. Hops quickly take over and add pine and a balancing bitterness. Really good.
