Aroma- Super fresh, full blown pine, citrus and grass.
Appearance- Clear Deep Golden Color with full white head.
Taste- Very bitter in all the right ways. earthy, piney, and maybe a little caramel.
Palate- Medium bodied, oily texture, and a decent bitter finish.
Overall- Very impressive, as long as you can get it fresh, this thing is a beast that can stand toe to toe with many world class IPAs. fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - OCT 23, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2014 Enjoy By 11-12-13. Incredible citrus aroma - probably the best nose of any beer I’ve ever had. The flavor is similar - very fresh, citrusy, and not too bitter. There’s a hint of malty sweetness for balance, but that isn’t what you’ll remember. I love the concept behind this beer, and it was executed brilliantly.
Enjoy By 12-26-14: This one has more spruce and pine, with less citrus and not as much floral aroma. I liked the previous one more, but still an outstanding beer. jjgmd (2248) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Enjoy By 10-25-13. Pours a semi-clear yellowish golden orange with a nice head. Nose is deep citrus with a predominance of grapefruit with some peach as well. Taste is bittersweet with deep and bold citrus flavors. Finish is bittersweet as well with the same bold citrus notes and some pine. Moderately long finish.

Enjoy by 10.25.13. Pours a golden orange with a white head and aroma of grapefruit and hops. Taste is bitter sweet, bitter hops, citrus, grapefruit, caramel and resin with a dry, heavy bitter finish. Nice DIPA chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Bottle. Opened 2 days before "drink by" date. Clear dark yellow with a fluffy white head. Initially upon opening, there is a nice hop aroma, but it attenuates slight soon thereafter. Big malt profile that overpowers the hops. No doubt that this is a double. Some apricot in the nose, but mostly hops and malt. The flavor is good, but the bitterness is a little harsh. Palate is perfect for a double. Medium carbonation that rapidly dissipates. It’s a big beer. Well done, but a little heavy-handed. I like what Stone is trying to do here. I just prefer an IPA with a bit more balance.

Draft at Brass Tap Trinity. Pours a clear copper orange color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is awesome with ton of hops in there. Flavor is quite nice as well as long as you’re a hop head. Great beer, great brewery. redbarenej (10) - - OCT 22, 2013
Overwhelmingly delicious hop aroma. Really nice, sweet, smooth hoppy flavor throughout. Not too bitter and alcohol is well hidden. Really really good. Godofthecellar (678) - NYC, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Poured dark amber with nice head and retention. Lacing spiraling around glass. Smell and taste was a hop bomb, light citrus, sticky hops wisdomsolo (472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2013
WOOF! Holy wow this is some strong hoppy hoppiness! The aroma has a bite that is equally matched by the hoppy bite of the flavor. Pine,citrus, strong bitter. ausomeawestin (152) - Maryland, USA - OCT 22, 2013

aroma of pine, citrus, mango, papaya, flowers, freshly cut wood. incredibly pungent pine tones, wow. pours a clear bronze with large foamy white head. impressive retention but little lacing. tastes of pine, spruce, pine sap, touches of pineapple, mango, some grapefruit in bitterness. the minimal sweetness is of honey and fruit. palate is clear and crisp yet full and well bodied, another perfect palate by stone. alcohol is noticeable on the palate, and accentuates the bitterness of the brew. overall, ’enjoy by’ is another joy by stone. incredible pine character, matched with tropical fruit, making for an impressive aroma and taste.
