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.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - AUG 30, 2013
This was enjoy by 9/13/13

Pours a clear yellow, amber. Brilliant and has a fast falling head of white foam that leaves loose bubbles and a ring and cap . Film on top and great lace.

Nose is pineapple and sweet from the ripe fruit. Dry pine needles and some grapefruit to be tart and to tease you a little. Omy. Theres not a lot of malt on the nose but what there is smells earthy and breaddy. Not too sweet just a breath of honey. Like if I leaned in close and then whispered the word "sweet." The real sweetness on this nose is from fruits and that excites. The hops are succulent even on the nose and floral.

The taste is out of this world. Malt is lightly breaddy and flows like silk under the sweetness of the fruit. It doesnt offer too much and stays just behind the pine needles and the pineapple. Theres a little orange that comes forward as it warms. This beer is perfectly balanced and theres a nice dry bitter. Not loud, not tremendous, just right. The hops are plump and floral on the palate and juicy in and of themselves. If thats even possible. This has a fluffy malt character that is light as a feather and then theres resin and oil and pungent spice but not too awful much. Just enough.

This beer is the reason you drink an IPA. Its bountiful in its hop character. Its decadent in its fruit sweetness. Its malt is superb and flows underneath it all to lead you to a spectacular bitter. Its pronounced but its not egregious. Its not heavy, its light. the mouthfeel is something you dont even think about until you are lost in the aftertaste. So glad I tired this. One of the best beers I have had this year.

dinkle50 (1447) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Orange pour with a single finger head. Aroma is intoxicating. Probably one of the best aromas out there. Tropical fruit, mango, pineapple. Big full mouth. Creamy. Taste is very bitter but wow is it tasty. Clean overall. Full of tropical fruit and hints of citrus. Wow is this a tasty DIPA. Big thumbs up.

gururyan (721) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Poured from a 9-13-13 batch bomber into snifter. Smells incredibly fresh as expected, very pale for an IPA, quickly dissipating head with lingering lacing. Palette is......screw this cork sniffery. This shit is chuggable as hell and packs a wallop. The lingering bitter is nice but a touch oily. While this is an exceptional beer, its not my favorite Stone. Im super glad I got to try an Enjoy By though and I am thoroughly enjoying it. Will I buy it again?...probably not if there is some Ruination around. I hope I can get my hands on the 17th anni Gtterdmmerung IPA brew, sounds very interesting. and unique.

9/13/13 bottle on 08/29/2013. Pours clear, bright orange, white head dies to slick of foam on the surface, nice residual lacing. Aroma is juicy orange essence, bright grapefruit and citrus peel, dark earthy pine and toasted malts. Taste is smooth, bitter grapefruit with sharp piney edge,some sweet roasted caramel cuts in to temper, lingering bitter finish. Heavy body, not very resinous at all and quite balanced, so drinks easy. Quite nice.

Hopswagger (199) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 29, 2013
09.13.13 P: A vivacious clear pale copper orange body with a crown of jiggly off white froth. S: Smells like your hands after peeling an orange. Crisp citrus hop explosion. Orange, melon, ruby red grapefruit, lemon zest, and toasted malts. T/M: Orange peel, lemon candy, mint, grapefruit juice, and mango. A sting of alcohol graces the tongue and leaves it tingly. Buttered toast, bubblegum and toasted caramel. Medium-full bodied with a great tingle of carbonation. O: Crisp bold hops that engulfs your palate and sweeten it with a toasted malt base. I have been waiting to get this as fresh as I could. This is a huge statement for freshness. I love this beer and I cant wait till the next one.

Bill Becker (947) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - AUG 29, 2013
I bought this bottle online from Bringonthebeer. A- it pours a crystal clear gold with a close to a 1 finger head of foam that seems to be shrinking slowly, leaving some lacing behind. S- the aromas oozed out of the bottle when I popped the cap. Hoppy as all get out. Big grapefruit, decidedly bitter to the nth degree. Reminds me of a certain "triple" IPA, which shall remain nameless, that went above and beyond my comfort zone. This smells very oily with the hop presence.. T- laws yes..err...no. Its not at all like the other brew I didnt mention by name. Well, they are both VERY hoppy and bitter but this has an oily/fresh hop flavour that kills it. Light on the malt but not that light. Mid palate is where I notice it the most...a kind of earthy malt presence. The rest is all the best of what hops can bring to the table and I "should" know. I have had some of the best thanks to online orders, TRADES, and what I can find off the shelf locally. M- tongue stickingly great. Perfect carbo and body. The latter..woo, woo, woo! O- I guess I kind of get what the hoopla is all about with Enjoy By. Yes.I.do!

zsb19 (168) - Cincinnati, Kentucky, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Enjoy by 9.13.13. Pours beautiful clear golden with medium fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet juicy citrus with tangerine and oranges and some nice floral hops. Taste is resinous spruce and citrus hops upfront that fades into some nice sweet malty notes on the follow through. Aftertaste is lingering bitter pine and citrus notes. Palate is medium and sticky. Overall an excellent Double IPA. Nice balance of bitter juicy hops and sweet malty notes.

beernbourbon (1585) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Bottle 9/13/13. Pour is clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is loaded with floral and lightly piney hops. Also a notable sweet malt component. Very clean aroma. Flavor is loaded with hops: floral and citrus notes dominate with orange being most notable. Malt is present but well-balanced. 9.4% is no where to be found. Its a big, sticky beer, but it drinks quite smoothly.

patrick767 (4038) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 27, 2013
tap at 800 Degrees on 3/22/13, version 4-01-13 - Pours hazy yellow-orange with a lingering white head and a big grapefruit hop aroma. As expected it tastes of huge hops bitterness. The hops is crisp and the citrus notes are bold. A tasty malt backbone and bubbly, full bodied mouthfeel makes this a dangerously drinkable beer for 9.4% abv. The strong, bitter finish lingers on the palate for a long time. Excellent IIPA.
