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.

Enjoy by 02.14.14 by Stone

Tasted on 2/14/14, a perfect Valentine!

Color- cloudy honey gold. Medium but thick head.

Aroma- hops, hops, and more hops; hints of evergreen bushes and fresh cut grass.

Taste- A hoppy and complicated brew. Starts with a raw hoppiness that isn't citrus or evergreen, it's more like a raw, bitter weed from the field. Then transitions to a mild buttery mid body. Finishes with a long, lingering pungent hoppiness. Very different from other offerings by Stone. The high ABV is fairly well masked. An excellent imperial IPA.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass),

Serving type: bottle
