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- weve taken it further, a lot further, in this IPA. You see, we specifically brewed it NOT to last. Weve not only gone to extensive lengths to ensure that youre getting this beer in your hands within an extraordinarily short window, we made sure that the Enjoy By date isnt randomly etched in tiny text somewhere on the bottle, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and beer fans. Instead, weve sent a clear message with the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.

jnanakul (26) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Poured from a 22oz bottle in to a Sam Adams tulip glass. Golden orange, crystal clear with a finger + of off white head, decent retention. Aromas of grapefruit, mango and piney hops. Flavor follows aroma, grapefruit, piney hops, some tropical fruit, bready, strong malt backbone and finishes hoppy and bitter. Super well balanced; you dont usually get this much fruit, malt and hop bitterness in the same beer. Medium bodied, mouth slightly dried out. Overall, probably my favorite IIPA. This is the third batch Ive had and so far it has been very consistent. Ive had some of the worlds best, Pliney, Hopslam, Dreadnought and this is definitely up there. The best part is the price and how easy it is to find (at least in my experience).

Fatehunter (2411) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Two fingers of foamy head on a clear, medium straw colored body. Looks great. The aroma of fresh hops: strong on the pine. Wonderful. The taste is big and bold bitterness: pine bitter, lemon bitter and a big malt bill to hold it all together. The texture is smooth and crisper with moderate carbonation. Its a top of the line beer.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2013 So happy to finally have gotten my hands on one of these! Enjoy By 7/04/13 bottle. Immense pine and herb aroma hits the nose. Light copper with a quick dissipating foam. Very mellow herb and spice overtones. Hops are definitely present with some faint metallic notes and a cinnamon/herb finish. Overall, from the smell of it, I was expecting a huge hop bomb with intense bitterness, but its actually pretty tame. High drinkability though. Id give this an A- rating. 10/25/13 Aroma - Intense leafy hops, sugary burnt caramel, pear and other fruits. Taste- Leafy autumn fall hops. Toasty molasses, salty peanuts and strong bitter hops. Overall, interesting take on this time around. Salt and peanut notes were a unique twist.

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2014 First beer rated. Have had 12.21.12, 4.20.13, and 7.4.13. This is in regards to 7.4.13. From El Cerrito Liquor in Corona, CA. Thanks Jazz! Pours a very clear light golden color with a small white head. Aroma is an outstanding citrus hoppy character with hints of grapefruit and peaches. Taste matches the aroma, with intense grapefruit and peach notes and a lasting bitter finish. One of my favorites. Stone never fails to impress.

dyetube (1374) - Hurst, Texas, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Purchased and drank on 6-1-13. Bottle from to lo beverages in allen, tx. Pours a light copper with a thin white head. The aromas are grass, citrus. The mouthfeel is dry, bitter and has a medium to light body with good carbonation. Great beer even though I drank it late... Cheers!

bu11zeye (12893) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2013
(Draught, Batch: 12-21-12) Pours a clear golden body with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of pineapple, mango, orange pulp, grapefruit, green plum skin, apples, kiwi, caramel, bread, grain, and resiny. Flavor of pine, grass, grain, citrus, and stone fruit with a dry, bitter finish.

BillKismet (3919) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Enjoy by 4-20-13. Bronzed decent, albeit thin, head. Whiff of cat urine aroma, however the body is pretty intense of cat urine and kitty litter. Close to a drain-pour. The most disappointing offering I have had from Stone.

ChiGuy68 (570) - Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2013 Tasted on tap at Quenchers. Huge citrusy floral aroma. Cloudy golden in color with a thin bubbly head. The hops kick you in the taste buds right after they assault your nose. I Love this beer. Thanks to Pablo for the introduction and hook up! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Originally rated 4.7 on tap but after tasting the "Enjoy By 9-13-13" from a bomber I up my rating. Damn I love this beer!

Enjoy By 05-17-13; Multiple pints. Pours gold with a white head. An explosion of citrus on the nose. Juicy melon, lots of bitter citrus flavor wise. Great beer.
