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: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance – Pours an orange golden color with a nice head that sticks around and very good lacing.

Smell – A really strong pine scent with an oily hoppiness.

Taste – Bitter pine.

Mouthfeel – Nicely carbonated. Bitter, but no lingering bitter aftertaste.

Drinkability – A bit over hopped for my taste, though I like that it's not in the aftertaste.

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

L-Golden colored...light lace....lightly carbonated look

S-Floral, herbal, piney....fragrant....oily hoppiness

T-Big again on the floral/herbal notes...not outwardly bitter....good oily hop flavor...almost noble hop feel at points....a good dose of evergreen like pineyness.

F-Definitely a DIPA in body but not sticky sweet like some...I like the oily hop feel to this.

O-A solid DIPA and my first foray into the "Enjoy By" offerings. Apparently they change? This is definitely a quality beer but I wouldn't rate it as high as it sits right now on this site (99)

Love the ABV. High IBU as well, but the hops work against the overall taste

Wow. Not one to do reviews and also more of a stout fan but, WOW! What a refreshingly smooth tasting, hoppy beer. I had my enjoy by 12/26/14 on 12/5/14 and just bought another this evening. This one impresses me. Way to go Stone!
