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.

On tap at 2 Bros in Salem Ct. Enjoy by 4-01-13. Pours a murky burnt orange color with a half inch of head. Tons of lacing. Aroma is hoppy with some sweet citrus and tropical fruits. The taste is more of the same sweet citrus and tropical fruits but some pine as well. Good amount of bitterness. Some malt flavor but this one if hop forward for sure. Creamy ,heavy mouthfeel. A bit reminiscent of Ruination. Overall, this is a damn fine Imperial with that typical Stone taste. Glad I got a chance to try it.

Pours a bright golden orange clear body with a bone white contrasting head. I swear this thing would glow in the dark.

Smells of juicy tropical fruits, dank grass, and pine. Tons of aroma.

Ahhh the joys of fresh ipa. Mango, floral, piney, and a light onion finish.

Mouthfeel is about right. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Very clean.

I loved every minute of this beer and quite possibly Stone's best beer.
