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.

05.17.13 batch. Hot dang this is fresh (10 days old).

Picked up a few bottles, opened the first with a friend. Poured into a tulip. Pours an absolute crystal clear pale orange with a large rocky white head on top. Retained well and left bits of lace stuck to the glass. Huge amounts of citrus in the nose - pineapple, grapefruit, mango, honeysuckle. The aroma is so sweet and fresh. Wow. I'd love to scent my home with this.

Crisp, clean mouthfeel. Great carbonation really drives the flavor in this one. A wallop of fresh citrus washes over the palate. Grapefruit, passionfruit, orange - with a really sweet finish. Bitterness is there, but this is so fresh and flavorful, that the bitterness is tamed down in a way. This is dangerously drinkable. One of the best DIPAs I've had the pleasure of having. Keep sending these to NC!!

5.17.13 batch.

pour is a tangerine tinted gold. Nice a clear. Finger of white head fading quickly, but lots of lovely lacing.

Nose is everything I could ever want in a DIPA. Sticky, citrus sweetness with that lovely hint of pine. Really quite perfect.

Taste is just as incredible. Citrus forward, with grapefruit, mango, and honey with a lovely floral component. Follows by perfect hoppy bitterness, with lovely pine resin stank.

Mouth feel is pretty spot on, but just a tad thinner than I would want to go along with the flavors.

Awesome beer. So fresh and clean. If Stone keeps doing this, it's worth buying every time.


9.13.13 batch

So glad it's back in ct! Beautiful pour. Nose is soo insanely juicy. Mango. Tangerine. Cantaloupe. Flavor is super citrusy up front but bigger hop on the end. Seems a little more dry and less sticky than my last batch. Regardless, heavenly.
