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.

Lightly hazed golden amber, moderate cap of sticky white froth. Scent brings strong notes of grapefruit, tropical notes, pine needles and alcohol. Taste is obviously big on the hops - grapefruit and pine up front, ctirus, floral and grassy in the rear - malt backbone lightly crackery but covered up by the dry bitterness and alcohol notes. Fuller side of medium bodied - heavy on the palate but no too sticky or chewey. Solid all around fresh IPA, not quite in the league of the top dIPAs.

Enjoy by 2.15.13.

Shared one of these yesterday at a tasting, sitting down with a bottle for a review tonight.

Pours a bright and clear gold color with a pretty nice white head. Nice looking beer.

Aromas are great, pineapple, pine and floral notes. A just a general fresh green resin smell.

Taste is slightly sweet up front, sugar, cream, and hard candies. Finish is bitter, with some resin, green floral fresh hops, pineapple, white wine, and earthiness. Tastes good, but I like the smell a bit better.

Mouthfeel is smooth, full, with nice crisp carbonation.

Overall, a very nice fresh IPA. One of the better Stone beers I've had in awhile.

Very excited to try my first bottle of this.

Enjoy by 2.15.13

The beer is crystal clear and appears a radiant golden hue. The head measures in at approximately a half inch, leaving sparse lacing on the pint glass. The aroma brings tangy citrus and tropical fruit. Smells awesome. The flavor is also exquisite. A hop bomb with notes of pine and a bouquet of tropical fruit. Pleasant lingering bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied and bit sticky on the palate. Highly drinkable with alcohol presence dangerously well hidden. Not only the best IPA I have had from Stone, but the best beer I have had from them overall. A world class IPA. Delicious.

22oz bomber, enjoy by 2/15/13

Served up in an elysian goblet - bright clear-orange body, fresh white foam. An extraordinarily clean hop profile with low residual bitterness - bright and fresh with an abundance of mango, tangerine, blood orange and lemon zest. Awesome stuff.
