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.

4:20:15 bomber into pint glass.

Yum I don't know what else to say.
Real bitter, dank and great, if you enjoy big in your face IPA's you will probably love it. Arguably the best beer I've ever had.

4.125/5. Really torn between the obvious dankness and the obvious skunkiness of 4-20. There is just enough "Heineken green bottle" going on to keep this out of the upper echelon. Great gobs of bitter and onion on nose but some sulfuric fartage on the end, which IMHO they did on purpose...but I digress...
There is great hop bombadiering on the taste. By far , flavor is the best characteristics of this beer. A lot of pellety flavor though. My take is enjoy by 420 would have been even better fresh. ENJOY since sister beer would be what I'd want to try.

4:20 version. I can tolerate the dank, onion, garlic, sweaty feet aroma. I just felt it was overly bitter and the hop profile was unable to effectively balance this monster imho.

This is an exceptional beer. When it comes to Stone's best, this is on par with Ruination, perhaps better. Without going too in-depth, I love the mix of tropical fruits and oniony, peppery, spicy characteristics. It did wonders to the palate, and it had me hoping for a limited edition bottle that includes a tongue scraper. Dank, delectable, and overall delicious. Like Daniel LaRusso and Ally with an "I", Stone and hops are a winning combination. Enjoy.

"Devastatingly fresh"? Really?

Cmon the only thing that's going to be devastated is your dad when you tell him you're gay for IPA

4/20 edition...Man, so good. They've all been good...to me, they take a couple weeks to hit peak flavor, but this one is great out of the gate. 6 packs?!?! One happy dude.

Aroma is amazing. Very Hoppy, fresh, and straight up dank. Mouth follows with even fresher tasting hops and crisp delicious bomb. One of my favorite beers ever.
