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.

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

Appearance:
Light dirty blonde around the edges and a dark dirty blonde towards the center, light golden hues emanate throughout the body. It is slight hazy overall and topped off with a thick white head that sticks around for a while.
Smell:
Strong citrus zest like orange and grape fruit mixed in with hops and some lemon grass.
Taste:
Just like the aroma, grapefruit zest, hops mild wheat flavors all carried by a slightly sweet taste. The aftertaste is bitter with a hint of alcohol.
Mouthfeel:
medium to full bodied and well rounded.
Overall:
Another great beer from Stone Brewing, great tasting, smooth and refreshing.

I am enjoying this deliciously fresh IPA and will definitely pursue the "Enjoy By" label in the future.
A = golden amber with a slight lemon cast. A foamy head that leaves a bit of lacing.
S = Hoppy flowery, light spice, and pleasant alcohol - not too alcohol forward.
T=Crisp and clean for an IPA. The bitterness tickles the back of the tongue in a good way. A slight malty sweetness.
M = Medium bodied and the 9.4% alcohol ensures crispness.
O = A delicious summer IPA, totally appropriate for the season. It would pair nicely with a barbeque meal, or any full flavored summer foods. Also tasty by itself!
