Sip of the Week

Stone Enjoy By 09.13.13 IPA, Stone Brewing, Escondido, Calif.

About $7.99 for a 22-ounce bottle.

India pale ales should be consumed at their freshest, before the wonderful fruity, floral and bitter hop notes fade. So Stone Brewing doesn’t make its Enjoy By IPA to last. The brewery has released many batches this year, each encouraging drinkers to “enjoy by” the date on the bottle. The latest – Enjoy By 09.13.13 – will hit local bottle shops any day now. Several hop varieties are used, resulting in a juicy interplay of resinous pine, orange zest and grapefruit. Just make sure you drink it soon. Daniel Hartis
