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.

4.83/5  rDev +9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

A: Pours a beautiful clear gold, white head quickly dissipates.

S: Citrus and floral hops, nice and strong.

T: A wonderful mix of citrus and floral characters, with just enough pine to balance out the sweet honey malts.

M: Medium body, medium low carb, matches nicely with taste. This is a pretty big beer, not an easy drinker.

O: I can feel the alcoholic warmth, was confused until I looked it up and saw that it is 9.4%... Hides the alcohol really well, hidden by the bitter pine finish. I was expecting this to be more in the 6-7% range, the value is much better as a high ABV beer. Not as in your face flavor as most IPAs that are this strong... Man this is a good beer. If you see it, grab it. There's a reason Stone is legendary for making IPAs.

7/4/14 bottle

A - Light gold, inch of froth, fizzy

S - Strong, piny, aggressive, very fresh

T - Like being in a forest, lemon/lime/bitter citrus, hops hops and more hops

M - Medium bodied due to carbonation

O - This is a very fresh, very aggressive, hoppy beer. Great beer if low on energy as it will definitely wake up your senses.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - A golden, strawlike hazy pour with a nice cotton top. Sticks to the glass all the way down and creates some nice lacing.

S - Sugar cane plus hops and some faint booze. Really nice sweet nectar.

T - Very piney with a sweet sugary hop-like backbone.

M - Nice and tangy and pleasing.

O - Solid as always from Stone.

Serving type: on-tap

3.71/5  rDev -16.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.25

A: Copper brown tone, clear filtered, a little large bubbled carbonation, a finger of creamy off white head that fades relatively fast.

S: Tropical fruits, mango, passion fruit, light cleaning alcohol, tea leaves, a hint of malt an offal.

T: Fruity in a tropical fruit concoction sort of way, citrus, floral perfume like purple lilac, wild grape, clean linen, light almost tea like bitterness on the end. Really covers the alcohol and is light in its feel.

M: Medium body with lots of light foamy carbonation, leaving a slightly powdery resinous finish.

O: Bought this today at Trader Joe’s near Williamsburg, VA. Drank tonight near Raleigh, NC. Certainly fresh. Not the best double IPA I’ve had, but good in it's mouth feel, very much hiding the alcohol. Good and fresh, and unique carbonation for this style.
