Stone Brewing Company Enjoy By IPA

Available at select locations, Stone Brewing's Enjoy By IPA series drives home the point that hoppy beers are best enjoyed while they are fresh, as the potency of the hops decreases over time. This double IPA is shipped the same day it's bottled and arrives on the shelves within one week. Those clamoring for it can vote to have it sent to their city on Stone's website (, which also displays a countdown until the beer is discontinued. As for the flavor, it's packed with fresh hop character and a dry, bitter aftertaste. Brewmaster Mitch Steele used eleven different hop varieties and implemented a technique called "hop bursting" — adding copious amounts of hops at the end of the boil and in the whirlpool to maximize their intense flavors and aromas. Don't wait to get one of these fresh masterpieces, as this beer was specifically brewed not to last, and likely won't be found on shelves after the Enjoy By date, which is prominently etched on the bottle.

Price: $7.49 (22 oz.)
