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.

KevinReddirt (1507) - Midland, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2022
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2022 I have a 12 oz can of the 10/31/22 version purchased at Mr. T's on the other side of town. Stone has gone full tilt on IPAs, let us see how this beer, packaged on 9/20/22 fares. Pouring into an appreciated Ft. Worth brewery's snifter, there is a totally impervious yellow-orange liquid that is finished by a small but steady top of almost white foam. The nose is pretty fine, do I detect a substantial amount of hops in a hazy IPA? But it is the drink that is most important. Well, I will say it is pretty fine also. And I am not a real hazy IPA fan. Tangerine, pine, white bread, malt, some oj, pineapple, a bit of varnish and field. More sweet than bitter but both are present. I call this a nice convergence of flavors and effects.

jhsnitz1 (1427) - Pendleton, South Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2022
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2022 Amber color with strong tropical and pine aroma. Taste is sweet tart tropical fruit with a nice bitter hop balance. Alcohol and hop bitter aftertaste.

MaltOne (649) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 16, 2021
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2021 10/31/21 batch - Big beer. Big grapefruit aroma. Pours yellow-gold, slightly hazy. Almost chewy in texture - malts adding great body and balancing the spicy hops. Excellent DIPA.

camay1997 (297) - patton, California, USA - AUG 25, 2021
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2021 Thick Whitehead atop a cloudy golden body. It's not the most aromatic of ipas it smells faintly a sea salt. There's not much to taste here besides alcohol and hops given the price of this beer I would not purchase it again

4.8
ronaldtheriot (2636) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUL 10, 2021
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2021 Enjoy By 7/04/21 has a very thick, off-white head, a hazy, orange appearance, filled with tan sediment, and moderate lacing. The aroma is of meaty hops and light malt. The flavor is of bitter, white bread crust, and fruit. Enjoy By 7/04/21 has a high-medium body and a somewhat viscous mouthfeel. The drinker will find a dry finish. RJT

pdog555 (1630) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 8, 2021
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2021 Pours pale golden with a thick white head. Aroma of grapefruit, citra. Taste has Amarillo, some peppery hop oils. Palate has lingering fruit notes, papaya with hop oils. Good.

badpuppy69 (826) - Orange, California, USA - NOV 24, 2020
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2020 From a bottle to a glass. Pours a clear amber color with a big frothy creamy silky head. Aroma is sweet bready malts and earthy spice hops and a touch of tobacco. Taste follows the aroma with a medium mouthfeel. Not as good as it used to be and was fairly over prices at $16 for a six pack otd! I'm over Enjoy By series!
Earlier Rating: 11/23/2012 Total Score: 4.9
Pours a gold color pillowy tight white head with great lacing on the glass. Aroma massive citrucy hops piney floral grapefruit and some slight caramel notes. Taste is massive hops with a slight barnyard hops funk to it. Slight caramel malt that balances the hops well enough to handle the dank hop character of this beer. Medium mouth feel that leaves a danky hop resin on your palate. This is in my top 5 favorites.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2020 Earlier Rating: 11/9/2018 Total Score: 4.3
I Love IIPA's and this is a good one. Found a 22oz bottle at Costco and had it last night, I know it says 10-31-18 to enjoy by, but double IPA's age well. Nice malt flavor and wonderful hop taste, not to strong, but lingers a little. Does not taste like 9.4 ABV beer, maybe more like a 7 ABV.

3.6
benpickens (732) - Madison, Alabama, USA - OCT 16, 2020
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2020 Pours golden bronze with frothy white head that doesn't hold well but leaves ample lacing; big juicy citrus on the nose; bitter, oily palate with a prolonged bitter finish.

JorgeLee (3058) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2020
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2020 Old review, the Stone Berlin version. Nice IPA as on expects from these guys, rich bitterness, fresh fruity hops, dry finish.
