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.

Enjoy by 4-20-17 Draft at Winking Lizard, Pennisula Ohio. Lace on glass. Thin white head. Golden in color. Smell the hops Really smooth, not overly hopped. No after bite which I like. Alcohol well hidden. Pretty nice Indian Pale Ale.

meccahh69lol (153) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - MAR 31, 2017
Enjoy By 4.20.17 - from a 12 oz bottle ($16 a sixer). Id had this before, but always in a bomber and not for a couple years, but I always try to pick it up when I see it. Anyway, it is just as good as I remembered. The dank stank it exudes is pungent and hoppy. It pours a luscious golden hue. The whole thing is a wonderful gnarl of resiny piney lemony grapefruity hoppy deliciousness that goes down pretty smooth and easy for 9.4% abv. Definitely one of the better beers Ive had from Stone, which is saying something. Good for waiting for weird Japanese RPGs to finish downloading and rocking out to some moderate volume jams from Fleetwood Mac all while you miss your special someone.

balloonbuffoon (200) - - MAR 29, 2017
Batch: Enjoy By 04.20.2017 (bottled on 03.14.2017). Paid $8 for a 22floz bottle. Appears before me a deep golden hue with even foam development. Big, juicy-hop aroma of cannabis buds doused in tangerine and grapefruit. It sure is an American (double) IPA. As expected the palate consists of a medium-full feel with grapefruit and some pine. Finishes bitter and alcohol makes its presence known. Lets see how this holds up for a day with a wine preserver stopper, since this is a heavy brew. Ill throw this in with all the other good to very-good IPAs available, and taking space away from other styles on market shelves.

oobawa (1187) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 28, 2017
Enjoy By 4.20.17. Massively pungent nose, grapefruit and pine and ganja wafting up from the pint, promising one hell of a green IPA. Looks nice as well, deep, glowing gold topped off by a healthy dollop of foam and ample lace. First sip: hops, hops, hops, juicy and piney and citric, orange-grapefruit and bitter lemon. After: grows unexpectedly sweet for a big Stone IPA, a giant caramel malt base playing off the varying hop flavors. Toasty on the back end, with a lingering pinecone bitterness, yet not palate-destroying in its longevity. Feels divine, not a trace of the 9.4% ABV, Dear lord, this beast is way, way too easy to drink. Trouble in a bottle. Delicious. I think Ill go enjoy some more.

Brandon1989 (635) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2017
Enjoy by 4-20-2017. On tap, pours a clear golden Amber color with a medium off white head. The aroma is citrusy, grapefruit, some pine but not over powering. The aroma is quite magnificent and very enticing. The flavor matches the aroma. There is a bunch of malt flavoring hitting with the citrusy grapfefruits, hop resin, pine cones, and white bread. The mouthfeel is medium and drinkability is quite high for a double IPA. No alcohol presence is detected for a 9.4% abv.

JTParis (23) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2017
@Village Idiot, Lexington, Kentucky. On tap. Its a hop pummelling from the start that gets less frenetic with each sip. Not completely convinced.

strong citrus aromas or orange, tangerine, and grapefruit. gold and clear in color with nice head. taste is hop forward with notes of citrus and pine. underlying light crystal malt flavors come through before finish.

derA (90) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 22, 2017
tap @ tap & bottle as enjoy by 4.20.17: well done DIPA from the west coast, nose is a good mix of citrus, tropical fruit and some pine, no individual flavor really stands out on its own but comes together quite nicely. Body is pretty full making for a chewy mouthfeel which is cut with enough bitterness to create a good balance. Finish is dank, for a lack of better descriptors but also quite a bit of tropical fruit. All in all this is a very well balanced, West Coast DIPA. Although its not my favorite style, this is a style-definition.

mezr (124) - California, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a tulip glass, its a crystal-clear golden color with a small white head that initially laces, but then disappears. Aroma is strong citrus, pine and resin. Medium bitter. I anticipated more bitter, but its good. Medium body, carbonation is on the softer side, and lightly sticky on the lips. Long finish, dry on the palate. Surprisingly timid for an Imperial IPA with its ABV (9.4%).
