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.

Beer on draft at Churchkey, kegged 5 days ago. Served in a becher of sorts. I've been very excited to try this beer and I'm really glad I got the opportunity to do so on draft. A phenomenal IPA for sure. I would definitely have this again. At the time of this review, this is #29 on the "Top Beers - American Double / Imperial IPA" list on beeradvocate, a well deserved spot.

Beer is amber to yellow / orange and clear with moderate to low carbonation and a white head, some lacing, moderate retention. Looks good.

Aroma is earthy, dank, sulfury, hoppy...that is all.

Beer is medium in body, thins out on the finish leaving just hops, just bitterness, earthy strong, chewy hop presence in the midpalate, a strong beer throughout, an in your face Stone hop experience. I love it.

Resiny, dank hops were evident in the aroma before I got close enough to pour.

Aggressive pour yields a clear golden copper color with a 2 inch cream head that lingers, eventually leaving sheets of lacing as it dissipates.

Lime, onion, and resin form the initial aroma. Mango, pineapple, grapefruit, cannabis, and pine add complexity. Tangerines and fresh cut grass round things out. Hints of bready malt are subtle.

Bready, fairly sweet caramel malt forms the flavor backbone. Resin, grapefruit pith, tangerines, lime, and onion finish fairly piney and bitter. There's a minty character that surfaces in the aftertaste.

Body is on the full side, with moderate carbonation and significant alcohol warmth.

Huge hop complexity, with flavorful malt profile that is just a bit too sweet.

I had the Enjoy by December 21st bottle that I picked up in Oakland. This beer was pretty awesome, I expected nothing less from Stone but this beer delivered above and beyond. One thing that really stood out was the smell, which was amazing.

The taste overall was just as good as it always is with Stone, lots of flavor and hops. I would say try it out but since you can't take this review as a good reason to pick up Stone's next special release.
