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.

A- Pours a very nice bright golden straw/amber color. Created a quick 2 finger width off-white head that faded quickly leaving some lingering lacing.

S - Wow, smells amazing. A great hop hit, with great grapefruit and mango accents. A little pine and malt there for good measure. It reminds me of Sucks a little.

T - More of the same. An great hop blast, with wonderful citrus throughout.

M - Crisp, light bodied and leaves a dry palate. It is smooth despite it's higher ABV.

O - The last batch (and first) I had of this was back in December and it really surprised me. This batch did exactly the same. This beer is amazing. Fresh, easy to drink and well balanced. Well done Stone.

Review is from notes kids...

APPEARANCE: Pours a two finger, medium looking, fluffy white head with good retention. Perfectly clear gamboge orange, though more amber when held to the light, with lower levels of carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a wisp and sticks to the sides of the glass. A splotchy wisp remains and leavs some dots of lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Lots of citrus, grapefruit, lemon and orange peel on the nose. Floral elements with some melon and a touch of caramel. Really bold and heavy on the citrus and grapefruit quality. Nice stuff.

TASTE: Lots of pine, grapefruit, lemon and citrus flavors for sure. Floral and piney bitterness at the swallow with a big but dry finish of bitter citrus and floral hops, pine and a touch of caramel sweetness. The hops are great and it's very flavorful, though I'd appreciate a slightly bigger malt profile as balance. Still very enjoyable.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy smooth on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes dry. Good feel.

OVERALL: Another good IPA from Stone. This is a fun series and I ask myself whether any of the collectors are putting together verticals of this bad boy. I would like to see a little more malt presence here so as to add another dimension to the beer, but the hop profile is quite lovely as the centerpiece anyways. High quality and would gladly drink again. Cheers vissai.
