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 4.01.13 - 22oz bottle poured into a stemless wine glass.

The beer pours a nice copper color, clear texture with a few bubbles rising to the top of the glass. A nice soapy white head rises above the beer, almost a finger high, that has decent retention and a decent amount of sticky lacing. The aroma is very tropical, lots of mango, pineapple, wildflower, grapefruit, tangerine with a bit burst of earthy pine and hop resin that finishes with sweet alcohol. The flavors are very nice, lots of tropical fruit, big mango layer, tangerine, grapefruit with lots of backing caramel malt and alcohol sweetness, lots of bitter, resinous pine sneaks out at the finish, balances the flavors nicely. The body is nice and thick, very juicy with a nice dry finish.

Verdict: A great DIPA from Stone, arguably of their best hoppy beers to date. It's a very boozy, but has a great hop profile. So happy to see this beer as a regular brew, if only they would bring back Ruination 10th Anniversary. A hop heads dream beer.
