Stone Brewing Company Enjoy By IPA

Sent to 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 hop flavors 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 to be sent to their city have the option to cast their vote on the Stone website (, which also has a display counting down how much time is left to enjoy this beer. As for the flavor, it's packed with fresh hop character along with an aftertaste balanced with dryness and bitterness. 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 the intense flavors and aromas of the hops. Don't delay in obtaining one of these fresh masterpieces, as this beer was specifically brewed not to last and likely won't be found on shelves after its Enjoy By date, which is prominently etched on the bottle.

Price: $7.49 (22 oz.)
