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.

This beer is just fantastic. Props to stone for upping their game, yet again. On tap at rustico, best by 5-17. You MUST have this beer on tap, it excels over the bottle noticeably in that format.

Pours a pretty gold and slightly orange color, clear with a ring of head, very pretty.

The smell is just awesome, pungent dank hops soaked in a mix of pepper, honey and earth, very clear that this beer is all about highlighting the hops no question, very little malt. Outstanding. The taste follows suit and features a very plant based hop base which is just delicious. Maybe a touch of sweet to give a malt backbone but the stars are hop flavors: citrus, weed, pepper, earth, pungent hop nugget.

The feel is nice, great carbonation and a medium feel, a lasting aftertaste of bitter sweet dripping hops.

Overall, wow. An excellent beer, on par or better than their IPA specialty neighbors Alpine which is high praise. Well done Stone.

I'll start but saying that this brew is a deal on wheels. Very affordable big batch brew that has most of the bells and whistles of a special release ipa

Pours out a hazy war of orange and yellow - nice and clear enough to see right thru

Aroma is hops at first followed by vegetal notes. A lil bit of old lemon and awesome onion

Taste is much the same - hop sweetness at first very refreshing if your thirsty - bitterness comes from over hopping- malts are there just adding to the sweetness of this brew

Not really a full bodied beer this goes down quick - I'm not sharing this bomber! Carbonation is pleasing as you quaff down big sips of this brew

Overall I'm really into this brew - the hop bill is overkill but that's ok by me - this DIPA could hang with some of the big boys - but very rough around the edges and not really refined -

Last note. A lot of these have tasted the same to me - with the exception of enjoy by they made after releasing they're session IPA - that one seemed very weak. So weak I was almost done looking for this beer. I'm glad I gave it another go around

Poured from a 22.oz bottle into Portsmouth tulip glass.

The color is a deep darker orange with a finger of white head with some nice lacing left on the glass. There a cloudy look to this beer that blocks the light out a bit does have a slight yellowish hue in the margins.

The smell is very piney hops flavored bringing a spruce aroma. There is a saturated clementine aroma that brings a bright citrus aroma that is hard brings visions of pulp to mind.

The taste of this beer is citrus at first but as it goes toward the back of the younger it pastes a layer of pine flavor hops that have slight sting as the go down. A slight scrape of the tongue by the bitterness of the hops is felt but feels like a battle scar since there is also tinge of pleasure there as well. At the corners of the mouth there is a nice slight tangerine flavor that resides there for a short time.

The feel of this beer a has a nice fullness that feels like it surrounds the pallet but does not engulf the entire mouth. This feels like a big IPA but does not hit hard either but slips into a push into hops here, there, and everywhere.
