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.

Clear pale gold with a white head.

Smell is dank, very resinous, pine, cat pee.

Taste is also big hops, again, resinous, though there's a little citrus as well, some line. Moderate bitterness, this is actually pretty balanced in spite of the intense hops. Delicious.

Mouthfeel is oily, dry, with full, softer carbonation. Light bodied.

This is a killer IPA, stone really nailed it. One can argue that more citrus hops could amp up the complexity, but there is some citrus, and I prefer the resinous hop flavors. Light body, high, clean ABV, what's not to love?

Finally got to cross this one off my want list. Bought a bottle of 07-04-14 last week and popped it open for the USA Ghana World Cup game. Great/lucky win by the way.

I'm getting a lot of booze and onion in the taste. It reminds me of FFF Arctic Panzer Wolf and a better version of the regular Stone IPA. While very good, it just seems overrated and overpriced. I can find local IPA's that are more satisfying.

Opened the bottle served with some nice chicken in a red pepper jelly over vermicelli. The golden color looks great. The aroma as I poured was intensely crisp with an abundance of pine. Once I dug into dinner and swallowed this lightly crisp, but very complex IPA I was blown away. This beer was promised as a fresh, but date driven determinator and it more than delivered an enjoyable experience. It's complexity isn't like the usual offerings in the IPA category. It offers something refreshingly different and makes me want to go get some more before July 4th.
