All hop heads instantly fell in love with this Double IPA first brewed by Stone back in 2012 packed full of piney and dank aromas and flavors, this beer was an instant success. Stone has played with their fantastic hop bill (Ahtanum, Super Galena, Simcoe, Amarillo, Delta, Target, Calypso, Cascade, Citra, Galaxy, Nelson Sauvin, Motueka and Helga) time and time again in order to give us wonderful variations of the same. However, this past year Stone starting bringing us even more variations: Enjoy By Black, Enjoy By Unfiltered, and, finally, Enjoy By Tangerine. The hop bill is changed up in this brew (Nugget, Super Galaena, Simcoe, Delta, Target, Amarillo, Cascade, Galaxy, Citra, Nelson Sauvin, Motueka, and Helga—12 different hops!).
This Double IPA is a fruit bomb, which is smooth and juicy making 9.4% (ABV) unrecognizable. From the bottle, Enjoy By pours a brilliant canary yellow-orange, which is clear and full of bubbles. The bright, white head lingers from the brilliant carbonation.
The 12 varieties of hops blend amazingly with the tangerine purée. A wonderful aroma, mimicking a bouquet of citrus fruits: tangerines, mandarins, blood oranges and ruby grapefruit. With a juicy, yet carbonated body, Enjoy By 5.30.16 with Tangerine will make you swear that you are drinking a mimosa concocted by the gods. The hoppy, citrusy, and tangy flavor is the perfect balance between hops and tangerine. Find it while you can and drink it while it is fresh!
