It’s Friday, so grab your favorite six-pack on the way home from work or enjoy a new beer. Bombers are 22 fl oz bottles of beer that often contain a brewery’s elite or unique concoction. Like a good bottle of wine, they are great for sharing and sipping 🙂 Stay tuned for periodic blasts of bomber Fridays.
Stone Brewing Company started making Enjoy By IPAs back in September which are bombers that- obvious by name- are suppose to be drunk by a specified date. The Enjoy By IPAs are made with a huge fresh hop character and are brewed to not last. Stone Brewing has taken large measures to ensure the beer is bottled, transported, on the shelves, and in the hands of consumers in a short amount of time.
This beer is a double IPA that has 9.4% ABV. Upon bottle cap release, there is a strong hop aroma- it is as if you are smelling a hop flower itself. Due to the fresh hops it has a very large floral taste. This Stone beer is an Enjoy By 08.02.13 IPA. It was bottled on 06.28.13 which gives it only 5 weeks to be available and drinkable. Part of the message Stone is trying to get across is “that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.”
