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.

It's a monster! "Hop-o-liciously fantabulous" is what American hop-heads would call it. "An over-hopped abomination" is what a few European / British friends of mine might call it. I'm more in the former camp myself, as I find it hard for stone to do any wrong, regardless of how much hops they manage to fit into any given beer. But don't be fooled, this is a hoppy one! If you're one to think this week's English ESB is a bit over the top, this one's a bit out of this world.

Orange tinted tan and clear, 2 finger head drops off after a couple mintues, lace is sparse.

Taste and aroma - well if you didn't guess "hoppy" by now, there's ot much hope for you, and we should just head on down to the corner store and grab you a fourty.

Body is medium with a slightly slick finish and a resinously hoppy linger.

Overall - it's Stone. The name alone says it all.

I can't say anything negative about this beer, so I had to give it a perfect rating. It's clean and crisp on the nose and the palate. Perfect IPA taste and smell. A beautiful golden, slightly orange color to it. I poured it into an IPA glass very slowly so there wasn't much head but it bubbled around the edges nicely and stayed the whole time I drank it. For a 9.4%, there's no alcohol taste so it really creeps up on you. Fantastic beer. Hoping to get another pint before 7/14/14
