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.

4.01.13. Finally man-handling a bottle solo so I can provide a proper review. 22 oz bomber into a thin tulip glass. Reviewed on 3/07/2013.

A - Crazy clear beer. Like "the bottle looks like its filled with water" clear. Beautiful golden amber body with some rising carbonation. Two to three fingers worth of fluffy off white foam which settles down quickly leaving behind some serious lacing with retention that will outlast the beer. Even swirling this beer is sexy as tons of rapid carbonation floods the surface of the beer right below the head. I'm a sucker for unfiltered IPA's, but this is hands down the best looking filtered IPA I have ever seen.

S - The hop bill is pretty insane and its very apparent. This is just a cluster fuck of hops varieties. Grapefruit, orange juice, pine, danky dank, peaches and a slight hint of savory onions. There really is a lot happening here, but the beauty of the beer is how damn fresh it is and each hop is in its glory here.

T - Despite an unbelievably complex and busy nose, the taste is actually rather straight forward. Bitter and juicy grapefruit, peaches, and a dash of pine. Very bitter finish with a light onion savoriness on the very tippy end. The bitterness does seem to wipe everything away and mute flavors out.

M - Thick and creamy with perfect carbonation.

O - A pretty impressive and damn near perfect IPA with a wide array of hops on display. I love the idea behind the beer, I love how deadly serious Stone is about it, and I love that nose and flavor. I'll be salivating for each batch and I hope CT gets it again. I will say that I was a bit less impressed when having it on tap though.
