Put the pumpkin spice on hold, and dive into an ocean of citrus this Halloween. The Stone Enjoy By 10.31.16 Tangerine IPA is a Frankenstein of 10 different hops that will electrify your palate with juicy tangerine, sweet orange, and zesty lemon. The hop selection may be familiar to those that have had the Enjoy By Double IPA in the past, but this year’s brew is augmented by the tangy addition of pureed tangerines.
The instruction to drink by Halloween may seem like short notice, but the IPA sensei at Stone have your best interest at heart. The mandate to enjoy within 37 days of bottling is crucial to enjoying the full value of the obscene level of hop additions.
Brewing a beer that isn’t meant to last can only be achieved through expert level craftsmanship fused with insane logistical efficiency. As a bonus, this ultimate freshness masks the heavyweight IPA like the perfect Halloween costume. Complaining about the seasonal creep of pumpkin beers may be in style right now, but Stone should be “upsetting” everyone after jumping all the way to Christmas by dropping this gift in October.
