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.

Purchased at Total Wine for <$9.00 USD for a 22oz bomber; unbelievable! Poured into a British-style imperial pint glass.

A: Crystal clear with a cotton candy foam head. Beautiful!

S: What is one of the best scents in the world for you? Yes, that's what this beer smells like!

T: Remember the first time your hop-head self enjoyed a real I.P.A.? Want to relive that moment? If yes, buy this beer. The bitterness and citrus flavors are spot on; I wouldn't change a thing about this beer. So smooth, yet so flavorful/complex/fresh. Awesome!

M: Perfect

Overall: I am so disappointed I only bought one bottle. I actually looked at real estate in Escondido today in an effort to live closer to this brewery. Thanks Stone; this beer is awesome!

Serving type: bottle

This years offerings so far have taken a serious nose dive! Had the release for Feb and now the March. Bittering is much milder and seems to be off balance now. Flavor is still solid but it is missing the 'grapey' (nelson sauvin?)finish I thought made this beer so unique. Dank hops are much more noticeable in this version. Not sure what has happened to the recipe or if hops used are no longer cost effective but it is not the awesome hop head offering it once was in 2013. Too bad this was definitely one of my favorite readily available IPA's in my area.

Serving type: on-tap
