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.

4.71/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

07.04.13-I've had other entries in Stone's 'Enjoy by' series, and while all were excellent, I think this one stands out as the finest, though that may be just because it happens to play to most of my prefferences . I'm really in the midst of a New Zealand hops phase, and this tastes strongly of Nelson or similiar hops.

A: 4.50 clear attractive light amber color (I hate this catagory. If it smelled and tasted great, Id' drink it if it looked like split pea soup)

S: 4.75 I LOVE that grapefruit/pineapple acidic aroma that screams 'NEW ZEALAND"

T: 4.75 Again, this groves perfectly with my current passion for an over-the-top citrus flavor thats amazingly thirst quenching.

M: 4.50 very nice. smooth and bready in it's maltiness, which is cut so well by the acid taste from all the hops

Overall-Excellent example of the type. For me, this would be a constant in my fridge if it was always available. Great alone, but stands up very well to strong food flavors. Seems to hold it's carbonation better than most others of the style. I had a pint sit for a couple of hours and still taste great, where others seem to go flat very quickly. Now I need to find out if Stone has it on Nitro at their tasting room...
