You have in your hands a devastatingly fresh double IPA. While freshness is a key component of many beers - especially big, citrusy, floral IPAs - we've taken it further, a lot further, in this IPA. You see, we specifically brewed it NOT to last. We've not only gone to extensive lengths to ensure that you're getting this beer in your hands within an extraordinarily short window, we made sure that the Enjoy By date isn't randomly etched in tiny text somewhere on the label, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and consumers. Instead, we've sent a clear message with the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

2.15.13 version. Poured into an Arrogant Bastard Ale pint glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a half finger white head that slowly dissipated to a thin film with a thick ring around the glass and light lacing. Aroma dominated by herbal, earthy and almost dank hops, a bit of sweet malt in the background. Taste follows aroma with very complex herbal and piney hops with a hint of citrus hops. Supported by solid sweet malt, orange and citrus rind, finishing with a moderate hop bitterness and residual herbal flavors from the fresh tasting hops. Does not overwhelm with hop bitterness, but delivers intense hop resins and esters. Medium bodied. Definitely delivers on what it promises: as fresh and intense a hop experience as possible without excessive bitterness. A hop lovers dream. I have to say the presentation of this really went over the hype boundary, even for Stone, but it does deliver. I was so intimidated by the instructions to drink quickly that I drank this the evening after it arrived in town. I do not regret that.
