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.

Pours a golden with a hint of orange and average white head. Has the aroma of hops, malt and orange peel. A slightly complex yet delicious combination of hops, orange, some grapefruit, with a kind of grassy finish. Very nice.

4-20-14 Enjoy By Appearance- fairly clear (a tad hazy), copper, orange hue. Appealing. Smell- excellent nose. Pine!!!! Some grass, too. Some floral notes to boot. Taste- big full wallop of resin (and that pine), lingers throughout. Bitter soon follows and strengthens at the end. Didnt note much of the citrus thing, unfortunately, compared to some the other reviews. Mouthfeel- big, full, dry. Overall- Im a sucker for Stone (love Ruination!), and easily fall prey to the "enjoy by" campaign, so Im a lock to try each offering. Not sure how long theyve been doing this (started last year, I think), but I really, really liked the one I had in 13. That said, Im glad I bought the 4-20-14. I "enjoyed" it, but wont be picking up another. A quality IPA, indeed, but not worth another round. Look forward to future offerings. Cheers all!

As a general rule there is no perfect beer. However, in my short craft brew career this one is pretty damn close. Let my brother-in-law try it on a whim. He always says "I hate craft brews. Ill take a Bud Light any day." Had him try this one...and I quote "That is the best beer I have ever tasted." If you havent had the pleasure, find a local store who had it and GET IT! You wont regret it.

pushkinwow (2753) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Enjoy by 5-16-14 bomber from CANBIF 2014. Clear amber with a faint off white head that mostly fades. Lots of tropical hops, some lighter citrus notes, semi-sweet with some booze, fairly malty, moderate+ carbonation with a full body, nice combination of sweet and bitter, slightly astringent, boozy, tasty, mmmmm.

Super intense and fresh IPA. It doesn't get much better than this when it comes to IPAs. You don't even notice that it's almost coming in at 10% ABV.

The pour is nice and crisp. The head is nice and light, and quickly fades but leaves a nice ring in the glass. The taste this year on the Enjoy By 4\20 is tops of my hoppy love. I really dont think hopslam too far behind but the finish is great as well. Recommend sooo highly!

Big bold citrus hops with a nice mellow lingering bitterness. Big and beautiful. Well done

I have had this beer several times - both bottle and tap. Always delicious. Pours a light copper with white head. Nose and flavor is tons of citrus and floral. Just wish it wasnt so high in alcohol.

Oh no. I am enjoying this beer after 4/20. I have failed Stone Brewing Company. Pours an orange color with a great citrus atoms. Some great hop and pine flavors mixed with some grapefruit. I like this beer!
