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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Clear pale gold with a white head.

Smell is dank, very resinous, pine, cat pee.

Taste is also big hops, again, resinous, though there's a little citrus as well, some line. Moderate bitterness, this is actually pretty balanced in spite of the intense hops. Delicious.

Mouthfeel is oily, dry, with full, softer carbonation. Light bodied.

This is a killer IPA, stone really nailed it. One can argue that more citrus hops could amp up the complexity, but there is some citrus, and I prefer the resinous hop flavors. Light body, high, clean ABV, what's not to love?

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Southampton Publick House pint. 12.13.13 version. Bottled 11/8/13, so a week old!! Bought at Whole Foods Newport Beach CA for $ 7.99.

A - Dark golden (on the edge of orange). Eggshell head leaves OK lacing.

S - Very hoppy. Catpiss first, then underlying peaches, apricots, and mangos.

T - Again very bright tropical notes upfront. Definite catpiss component, plus the peaches, apricots, mango flavors. Bitterness creeps in on the finish, but not harsh. Their is a slight sweet malt backbone that makes it smooth. There is a slight alcohol note, but not off-putting. It accentuates the hop flavors.

M - Crisp and light for the ABV. Carbonation is medium high and lively. Makes it seem like a lighter beer than it is.

O - Great beer nose-wise. The smell really pops and makes the whole experience more enjoyable. I also really like the hop combinations. Had the last version on tap at the brewery and thought it was more malty and boozy.

05.17.13 Batch

Clear, light amber color with two fingers of head that settles to a thin cap. Moderate amount of lacing is left down the glass.

To me this smells a little catty. Also pine tar, citrus, and dankness.

Dry, hoppy, and bitter. The hops are strong and taste fresh. Citrus, pine, and dank green flavor. Absolutely dry malt profile with little flavor of its own. Definitely putting the hops on display with this one. Alcohol is not detectable.

Medium body with really nice carbonation. Just about perfect for a beer like this.

This beer delivers the hop goods. Not sure if it is worth it or not. Worth a try at least once.

Enjoy by 12.21.12. Reviewed from notes taken while consuming a few weeks ago.

A: Pours a clear light amber with a couple fingers of rocky off-white head. Great film retention, patchy lace.
S: Huge citrus, grapefruit pith, and sticky hop resin nose with notes of pine sap and a touch of mint, orange rind, and alcohol vapor.
T: Juicy fruity hops, exotic fruit nectar, grapefruit pith, orange peel finish, mint aftertaste and a hint of oily resin and alcohol.
M: Fully body, a bit boozy and oily mouthfeel but it drinks well though. Smooth.
O: Typical Stone in your face ipa. Hoppy but a bit greasy and boozy. Would buy again though, love the concept of the freshness date. Cheers.

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.

Batch 5 (04.01.13)

Beer is golden in colour with a fair-sized white head. Pretty good retention, very good lace.

Lots of citrus and tropical fruit scents in the nose. Grapefruit, passionfruit, papaya, a hint of pineapple. Sticky.

Beer tastes like an amped-up Stone IPA. Hop focused with a strong citrus flavour. Grapefruit, orange and some tropical fruit flavours: passionfruit sticks out, but there is plenty happening. Finish is a bit spicy and piney, some white pepper. Malt is very low- beer seems to be all hops, with a minimal malt presence. Very nice.

Medium to full bodied, oily, strongly carbonated. A fair bit of alcohol heat.

Overall, really good. Glad I got to try this one.
