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.

Stone's "Enjoy By 12.21.12 Double IPA". A brew to drink before the world ends! 22oz bomber. 9.4%ABV. Bottling date of 11/16/2012

Appearance: Pours a light golden honey color. This beer is ultra-clear and not hazy in the slightest. 1/2 inch white head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring.

Aroma: Very fruity. Smells of pineapple, mango, grapefruit, light hint of pine and leather, big citrus notes, finally a slight bready/biscuity aroma.

Taste: Oily hop resin, piney, big citrus, almost an earthy/woody taste. It's spicy, herbal, and quite dank.

Mouthfeel: A medium-body. Light and dry with a slightly peppery finish with loads of delicious bitterness that coats my mouth for a few seconds before disappearing.

Overall: This beer masks its 9.4% ABV very well. Dangerously drinkable for a double IPA. And for a 10 day old bottled beer? That's a great win for fresh beer as time is usually not the friend of IPA's. This beer is quite delicious and I had the foresight to purchase 2 more bottles. The aroma of this Stone beer is just phenomenal.

Poured from 22 oz. bottle to tulip glass. Enjoy by 4/20/2013.

A: Clear, golden, light and foamy white head. Fairly active carbonation.

S: Beautifully strong bouquet of piney hops, grapefruit, green grass, and a hint of lemon zest. The freshness really comes through in the nose of this one.

T: Malt backbone with bright citrus hops, grapefruit, cut grass, juniper, and white pepper.

M: A bit oily, medium-bodied. Fresh hops but doesn't rip your tongue off with bitterness like some of Stone's double IPAs.

O: Cool concept, reasonably priced for the freshness and demand for unique beers in my area, and a pretty good Double IPA to boot.
