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.

This was for the 7th batch, reviewed in early May. Light tan head. creamy, one finger high. Good retention and lacing. Pale golden color and crystal clear. Aroma is wonderfully hoppy. Crisp, pungent, and fresh hops. Mango, citrus rind, tropical fruits, pine, and notes of grass. The taste is much the same with plenty of tropical fruits/mango, big citrus kick, pine, loads of bitterness, grassy notes, with a light malt backing that adds just a nice rounding to the barrage of hops. The mouthfeel is great. Not too full at all. Moderate carbonation works well to keep it lighter feeling, light-medium and filmy consistency, medium body, and a nice and bitter crisp finish.

Overall another REALLY great IPA from Stone. They have not disappointed me yet, and I was even more thrilled with this IPA than I expected to be. Just fantastic. I will certainly be getting another few of this batch and will get any subsequent batches that are released in my distribution network. Fantastic idea with the series and done completely right!

Pours a clean orange-ish to yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, pineapple, and small orange citrus hops. In the taste, big fresh hops, with orange citrus and a mix of pine hops, and a small minty like burn. A nice hop bitterness and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dryer fresh pine hop like aftertaste. Big and fresh hops, the only flaw, it is almost too fresh, but really nice.
