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 12. 26.14. Been sought after for a few months now after trying most of stones regular releases and reading more and more about this one. Finally found one available in my home town (without an expired date! Chill bumps upon nothing in the cooler!) although if I find another tomorrow( as today on Christmas the store is closed) , I will buy another and drink right before i CANT enjoy by!! have very high hopes and I can say..... This beer is magnificent! Beer is an understatement. From the smell to the Taste this fills all the gaps that other iPas lack, and I didn't even know they were lacking until I endured this HOP /FLAVOR explosion.I wouldn't even say it is bitter like most iPas as the bitterness is full flavor until it completely fades from your taste buds. It has completely ruined my palate as I have read from others.. This beer sets the bar for all iPas for me at this point. And with an abv in the 9's I'm blown away more like 6's by taste. If u drink iPas regularly do not pass this up you will not regret it!! Can't wait to find another!! Cheers, Kevin.

Bottle poured into a Stone IPA glass

A: Pours deep amber with a frothy off white head that settles and laces very well.

S: Sweet caramel malt, some tropical fruit, pine and herbal notes, and maybe a little light citrus.

T: Juicy citrus and tropical fruit up front, pineapple, mango, tangerine, and a little grapefruit, some pine and herbal notes, all backed with a nice caramel malt sweetness. No trace of it's 9.4%

M: Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, quite smooth, almost creamy.

O: Just snuck this one before it's enjoy by date, but still a very potent and tasty brew.

The 12-26-14 seems more piney and less bready than the 4-20-14, which was the last Enjoy By I had. Was not crazy about the 4-20, but this one--the 12/26--is a flat-out solid DIPA.

Golden color, looks mostly filtered. Head is a bit foamier than typical for an IPA, good persistence.

Deep, rich, bitter flavor. Very nice. Slightest hint of sweetness on the attack is slapped around by the grassy bitterness on the midpalate, never to be sensed again.

Nice mouthfeel, a bit on the richer side, consistent with the huge flavor.

Long, long, subtle bitter finish. Very nice indeed.
