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: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A - Pours a golden amber with a one-finger white head. Nice amount of lacing.

S - Lots of sweet citrus - mango, orange, & pineapple.

T - Follows the smell with sweet citrus. After the sweetness there is a big punch of earthy piney hops. Finish has a lingering bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very crisp with a sticky and dry mouthfeel.

O - Very nice DIPA. Very smooth and drinkable.

4.56/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Serving type: Bottle. 4/20/14. Poured into a tulip glass.

Great golden yellow coloration. Pure white 1/4" head. Slightly cloudy.

Nose immediately picks up citrus and fruity aromas ; definitely lives up to the "devastatingly dank" hype labeled on the neck of the bottle.

Extremely flavorful and emulates the aroma of the beer. Bold citrus flavors are elevated above the bitterness often associated with IPAs. A little "sting" is pervasive throughout each sip from the relatively high alcohol content, but it only adds to the dept of this beer's flavor profile.

Not necessarily full, but not light by any stretch of the imagination. Carbonation provides that iconic tingly sensation on the lips with each swig. Only issue here is that it took away from the initial flavor of the beer; all you could feel was tingling and couldn't even register the front-end of the flavor.

Absolutely fantastic Double IPA that, even bottled, is the personification of what this style of beer should be. It was a fresh beer that stands apart from the rest of Stone's line-up, which is generally overrated and readily available at many bars and liquor stores in my general area. I would recommend this specific brew to anyone that enjoys hoppy beers.
