Enjoy By 10.31.16 Tangerine IPA
"ENJOY NOW! Drink it by HALLOWEEN or we will Haunt You." Those are some of the tag lines on the bottle of Stone's Enjoy By 10.31.16 Tangerine IPA. Stone brewed this beer to be enjoyed within 37 days. Luckily I drank mine in the 25 day range.
The story on the back of this bottle tells the history of the "Enjoy By" series of beers. This particular version is a DIPA brewed with mandarin orange. I eat so many cuties, this is right up my alley anyway! 9.4% alcohol. Bottled 09/27/16.
Holy fucking awesome tangerine aroma! Mandarina Heaven! And despite that nose, the flavors were even more fabulous than I was dreaming about! Tons of tangerine, super juicy and awesomely fresh. Tangy, bitter, super hoppy, a little spicy. That tangerine flavor really makes your taste buds dance! Like out of control awesomeness!
Absolutely delicious, so much so that I would risk the Stone haunting to even drink this beyond Halloween! #FrighteninglyFresh
