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- we’ve taken it further, a lot further, in this IPA. You see, we specifically brewed it NOT to last. We’ve not only gone to extensive lengths to ensure that you’re getting this beer in your hands within an extraordinarily short window, we made sure that the Enjoy By date isn’t randomly etched in tiny text somewhere on the bottle, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and beer fans. Instead, we’ve sent a clear message with the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.

FlacoAlto (4221) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2013
A vigorous pour into my New Belgium globe glass produces a two-finger thick, pale, just tan head. The beer is a pale copper color that shows a brilliantly clear, rich, concentrated gold hue when held up to the light. As I pour this I get a vibrant aromatic note of mango and lychee. A deeper inspection of the nose yields notes of definite lychee, guava, a slightly metallic hop note, some dank herbal notes that lean toward “hemp”-oils, aromatic grainy smelling brown pepper, this last has a dried herbal, not quite woody, herbal edge to it that is almost savory in character.

Dominantly hoppy up front, the beer has a perceived sweetness from the ample, fruity hop character, but this dries out substantially into the spicy, hop driven and bitter finish. Flavors of bright lychee, kumquat, guava, bright tangelo zest, and a dank, herbaceous, almost woody hop character that gets very pepper in the finish. The beer has a biting bitterness that is not overly sharp, especially for an IPA; this last is of course relative to today’s over-hopped IPAs. Woody, almost cedar like, hop notes add to the dankness and there is just a touch of garlic-chive like character, and a touch of a metallic like note. The body is nice and light, yet has some texture and weight to it; enough to carry the hops, but not so much as to keep this from being quaffable.

Quite a nice IPA, vibrantly fresh, fruity, herbal, tasty and one of the best IPAs from Stone yet. I really like the balance between the expressive fruit character and the peppery, herbaceous character.

B. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Full disclosure, I had the 'enjoy by 10/31/17' on 11/20/17 so it's possible it's not at peak freshness. That being said, it's full of flavor and not too bitter.

Enjoy By 10.31.17. On tap at JL Beers. Clear golden pour with a white head. Tropical fruits and a little grassy with hints of citrus. Really nice IPA, bright and fresh.

Lacho (110) - USA - OCT 29, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 Pours golden with a thin head that lingers. First aromas upfront of peach, tangerine and cherry. The alcohol content is noticeable but is very well balanced at first sip. This is a strong IPA, floral, piney notes give way to cherry and citrus, tart fruit cocktail.

Heidbummer (929) - SCOTLAND - OCT 8, 2017
Taster Stone Liberty Station. Pours copper, no head. Honey, biscuity, dried herbs aroma. Fantastic full mouthfeel. It's dense, dry, subtle but clearly really well made. Great.

Mindwarp (303) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 7, 2017
This is the enjoy by 10-31-17 version. Pours a nice gold with small white head. Slight floral hoppy aroma. Taste is a nice mix of hops with a bit of bitterness. This is my first Enjoy By IPA and I've heard they are different, i dont know, but I really like this type of IPA
