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.

Seventh Batch - 05.17.13 served in a tulip glass

Light golden orange colored beer. Nice head. Decent retention. Great lacing

Fantastic aroma! Tropical fruit and citrus hops. Pungent and resiny Very strong and pronounced hop aroma. Some sweet malt, too. This is how a double IPA is supposed to smell like!

Great flavor. So much hop character! A nice balance of hop flavor, malt flavor and bitterness. Again, tropical fruit and citrus hops. A little spicy. Really nice flavor.

Medium bodied. Carbonation and bitterness is pretty harsh on the tongue. Everlasting dry, bitter finish.

I've recently realized the importance of drinking hoppy beers when they're fresh. This is a fantastic beer. I like the idea of having an "Enjoy By" date so prominent. For a hoppy beer, anyway. Hopefully I can snag a bottle or two from the next batch.

Enjoy By 5/17/13 (bottled 4/12/13)

Pours a clear gold with two finger thick dense creamy head. Thick rings down the glass. Smell: quick melon note, floral, grapefruit, pine, dried apricot, alcohol. Taste: fleeting biscuit and melon then big hop blast - pine, grapefruit peel, grassy. Oily into drying into sticky. Really good SD style DIPA. Thanks for sending this our way - probably the freshest Stone to hit FL.
