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.

Tap at Top Hops.. Enjoy by 4-1-13. Are all Stones IPAs the goddamn same.. I feel like its the Ruination round 5. Nice floral, citrus aroma. Taste is too malted and leaves a weird coating in mouth. Decent but nothing new here.

dambor (610) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 21, 2017
Enjoy by 20.04.17. Pours clear orange with small head. Aroma: very nice aroma of tropical fruit, coupled with nice dryness and a touch of pine. Very intense. Taste: nice dry but burstling with tropical flavors. Finish is dry with medium bitterness. Excellent, but given the fact that I had it on the due date I can imagine it already lost some aromas.

Palme (4484) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 21, 2017
0.65l bottle @ Hotel Room. Sooo thirsty! This is a mild blurry darkish golden colored one, a nice medium sized just off-white head on the top leaving small lacings. Smells really inviting. Piney and kinda sticky. Lots of sweet red berries, spruces and mild birch. Its really strong and hoppy in the taste. Just above average on the carbonation and its nice sticky oily in the mouth. Lots and lots of flavor in this. Birchey pine, strong malty yet somehow balanced. Bitter marmalade hints and peel. Really really tasty, and this bottle went away scary quick. 11.06.2015

jonno (2682) - JAPAN - APR 14, 2017
4.20 edition. Huge stone fruit and tropical fruit but very well balanced. This is what stone should be doing all the time - making well balanced, big hoptastic beers, rather than the candy hops type beers they have been doing recently.

dnstone (3016) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 10, 2017
Enjoy By 4.20.17 Clear golden-copper with a white head. Malty-earthy-fruity aroma and taste. Light to medium bodied. Lingering hop bitterness. Notes on tap at PJ Whelihans, Apr 17.

Rumbero (75) - Miami, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2017
Enjoy By 4/20/2017 - poured into IPA glass Aroma: soft layers of citrus (lemon, lime, grapefruit), passion fruit and even guava. spicy, piney hop notes. these overwhelm any contribution from malt. but its fine. Appearance: pours deep golden by definition with an inch thick perfectly white frothy head. This beer is crystal clear and displays excellent lacing. close to perfect. Taste: following from the aroma, tropical fruits are all over, sweet slightly caramely malt flavors combined with full-on alpha acid attack bitterness which actually diminishes just slightly as beer warms. there is a faint alcohol warmth present which I dont remember detecting with previous versions. Palate: medium/full body. oily, resiny texture, high/crisp carbonation and pronounced astringency. Finishes sweet-ish and long... almost intense levels of bitterness lingering... Overall: not the most drinkable or best of the Enjoy Bys that Ive had. Pretty intense on the bittering but still a top notch DIPA. when you get compared to perfection... its a tough act to follow.

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 (123) - 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.
