Stone is at it again with their 10.31.14 version of Enjoy By IPA.  I’m never dissapointed with the aroma, flavor, and quality of this series.  Bottled on 9/23/14 and released shortly thereafter. This one pours a light golden-amber with an off-white head.  Very intense initial aromas of pine resin followed by mango, grapefruit, and orange. The flavor is very smooth with only moderate bitterness, sweet, nice fresh hop flavors, and some tropical notes. Solid with 9.4% ABV and 88 IBU. This one was only distributed to 11 states – I’m lucky enough to be in the same state as Stone, but Enjoy By is not always released in California. I’m sure you can always get every release at the brewery, however.  Get this one if you can and drink it NOW…
