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.

22 oz bottle, the Enjoy By 7.04.14 version

pours crystal clear, bright dark golden in color, bright white head. good head retention, and a bit of lacing. aroma has got to be the most intense hop aroma I've smelled from an IPA before. like opening up a package of vacuum sealed package of hops. citrus, pine, a bit dank. clean simple base malt and all hop flavor. highlights the hops well, but I personally prefer a bit more malt flavor in a DIPA. medium body, higher carbonation.

Enjoyed in a 20 oz Beer Club Member glass at Mellow Mushroom in Southlake, TX. Pours a cloudy amber color with two finger head that slowly dissipates and 20 minutes later remains to create lacing. Lots of floral notes in the nose. The taste is surprisingly balanced - I was expecting my taste buds to get knocked around by the hops, but they survived. The alcohol is well hidden so be careful!

Well done Stone! Well done! Personally I have not been overly impressed by the 'Enjoy by' series since its inception. Coerced by 2 very reliable sources I went ahead and did enjoy this dbl ipa by 7.4.14.

Beautifully crafted with a slight grapefruit-y hop smell, it is a medium bodied double ipa that does not overwhelm nor intrude. Pairs well with a delicious summer salad... or a Jameson neat.

Well done Stone. well done. please brew more.
