Stone Brewing Co. has shipped a new Enjoy By variant, but this version has a little something extra.
The new beer is Enjoy By 02.14.17 Chocolate & Coffee IPA, a 9.4 percent ABV IPA brewed with Amarillo, Cascade, Citra, Delta, Galaxy, Helga, Motueka, nelson saurian, nugget, Simcoe, super galena and Target hops as well as chocolate and coffee. With more than 35 releases so far, the Enjoy By Series started in 2012 and includes IPAs that are specifically brewed with an enjoy by date for optimum freshness.
“For this special edition, we added chocolate and coffee to make this devastatingly fresh IPA even more seductive to the palate,” reads the marketing materials. “We humbly suggest that you use this libation to proclaim your love for someone… and we suggest that someone be you. Loving yourself is exactly what this libation is all about.”
According to the Escondido, Calif.-based brewery, Enjoy By 02.14.17 Chocolate & Coffee IPA will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles as well as six-packs of 12-ounce bottles, and is shipping to retailers in 36 different states as well as the countries of Korea, Japan and Singapore now.
