Post-Huracan Beer: Stone Enjoy By IPA

A devastatingly fresh double IPA after a long ride on the incredible Huracan 300 bikepacking route in central Florida…

I have been waiting to try this beer for a couple weeks now. It’s only available for a short window, bottled on 11.21.14 and purposefully created with an expiration date, 12.26.14. I was fairly confident that it would be good, as are most Stone brews. So I slated it as post-ride refreshment after tackling the challenging Huracan 300 route.

The Huracan 300 Challenge is a self-supported race that’s considered the ULTIMATE OFF-ROAD ENDURANCE EXPERIENCE in the state of Florida. I followed the 2014 route for a couple of days (I’ll have much more on the route soon) and here are a couple of teaser shots:

After a final day of riding that culminated with a painful road ride during hefty rainstorm, the Enjoy By IPA was a much needed refresher for soothing sore muscles. It didn’t fall short of expectations. This is a big and floral double IPA with a fresh taste and notes of grassy citrus and piney hops. Go get one.

    what makes a beer a double vs single ipa?

  • http://www.pedalingnowhere.com/ Logan

    Generally speaking a double is brewed with more hops and more malts, in turn giving it more alchohol… so it’s just a bigger beer overall…

    Hi Logan, is that the original of your frame bag? Just made one to your recipe and it seems like a sturdy piece of kit. (And generally love the site). The beer looks lovely too and Stone publish some of their recipes for home brewers.

    You need to get out here to Australia and then you can play with some real crocodiles, salt water ones that is :) On my tour out of Darwin in the NT I stopped at a river for lunch. After a bit I noticed a guy fishing and wondered why he kept changing fishing stops after a few minutes …. then I clicked!

    I moved my lunch spot real quick :)
