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.

12.21.12 batch, so this review explicitly violates the whole idea of Enjoy By. That said...clear copper color, medium head, ok lacing, nothing to write home about. Aroma has a floral hop character with a touch of dankness but i imagine the aroma is somewhat faded. Still, it is pleasant in its current state. Flavor is resiny and grapefruit bitterness, with a hint of the malt backbone. Mostly sweet malt after taste. Some of the power is gone I suspect but overall this is sill an enjoyable brew even a month after the enjoy by date.

jcos (1520) - Maryland, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle on January 23rd, 2013 of Enjoy by 2-15-13.

Appearance: Pours a clear orange.
Aroma: Aroma of piney hops, faint floral
Taste: Over medium bitterness, some floral hop, pine, faint orange citrus.
Palate:Medium light body, lingering piney aftertaste(yum), covers alcohol really well.

Summary: This is exactly what I want in a DIPA, only issue is I feel I could chug this thing. It really is a great beer, and hope the VA/DC/MD area gets more Enjoy By in the future.

Beerman6686 (4170) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Best new offering i;ve had from stone in a very long while. This pour a hazy light orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of tangerines, pine, and resinous dank buds. Flavor was similar, a little more subdued than I was hoping, for and on the sweeter side, but fairly dry still and load with fruits and pine. Nice DIPA.

kindacold (210) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2013
2.15.13 version. Pours clear golden with medium head. Smells of pine, citrus, and flowers. Very piney and floral flavor, bitter, with a good balance of sweetness. Very floral, extremely well balanced, sticky. Sticky linger on finish.

sloth (2443) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Medium sized, sturdy off white head that lasts.Thick coating lace. Bright, light copper color, just one inviting looking brew. Grand, spicy hop nose with notes of citrus and pine and a skoche floral too boot. Body is med/full with an oily slickness, maybe a bit too much so? Seems to me a little more carbonation would of made this fine brew even more enjoyable.Lotsa juicy, citrusy hop flavors with a tinge of lightly sweet caramel and biscuity malts. A bit resiny and piney, lil inkyness too. Finish is fairly dry, lil dank with a more tame than expected hop bite. Very quaffable for a 9%er though. Nice fuckin DIPA! Props to my buddy Robert for the bomber! E.B. 2/15/13

Draft at Monks - 2-15-13 version. Pours clear orange-gold with 1 finger of fluffy white head and solid lacing. Nose is onion, caramel, burnt cheese, sweet caramel, some floral and piney hops. Really fresh with solid hop bitterness. Really solid IPA. One of Stones finest for sure.

baraciisch (1673) - USA - JAN 21, 2013
Freshness is evident on the aroma, huge piney and floral hops aroma... Crystal clear golden color... Flavor is crisp, tons of herbal notes throughout... Palate is not terribly bitter, reminds me of a Pliny, maybe not quite as good, but delicious nonetheless... Stone brews another winner

mcberko (5931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 21, 2013
22 oz. bottle, hauled up here by julian (thanks a lot, man), pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of super pungent piney hops, a bit of grassy and herbal hops as well, with some crisp crackery malt in the back. Flavour of mouthwatering piney hops that totally dominate, a touch of herbal hops, and some crisp crackery malts that hold things together. Nicely light on the palate, but still hugely flavourful. Extremely well crafted IIPA - just how I love ’em.

Giddy as a school girl to try this offering from Stone. 02/15/13 edition’s journey to Philadelphia perfectly. Draft poured hazy golden with strong head, fresh citrus aroma, gree hops flavor and just a slight sweetness peeking through. Another well done 2XIPA by Stone, a brewery who is not afraid to experiment and push the envelope in the craft beer world.

smaynard6000 (602) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2013
22oz bottle, 2-15-13. Pours a sparkling copper color with generous white head. Very aromatic- tons of citrus and floral notes in the nose of this. Smooth hoppy flavor with plenty of citrus with mellow bitter finish. This is fresh and it shows.
