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.

Pours a clear golden-orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, tropical fruit, earth, and slight herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet citrus juice, citrus zest, tropical fruit, berry, and slight herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with fantastic fruit forward hop characteristics that make this one a treat to drink. Great job, Stone!

Really enjoyable fresh beer that sings of hop aroma, citrusy and floral. Berry notes on taste (slight) and orange as well. Sessionable and tasty.

Pours amber with a nice looking frothy two finger head that leaves a good amount of lacing.
Grapefruit and floral aroma. Dominant grapefruit on the front, medium caramel malt and bitter finish to round out the mouthfeel. If consumer reports was reviewing this beer it would be a best buy.

L: brilliant amber, 1” head dissipates to film S: big grassy nose T: Starts rich and creamy with some malt and then an overwhelming hop presence rises up, very well developed. Some malt sweetness in the background, A little pepper, very grassy palate, the hops are intense but not harsh, very mellow F: Creamy, medium to medium full body, medium carbonation. O: The hops flavors are a treat. The combination of intensely grassy hops over sweet malts is marvelous.

I was expecting quite a bit from this one going in - considering it was a pain to find in my area at the time - and I think it delivered. Loved the malty profile and the sweet, almost tropical notes to it, great hoppy finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Surprisingly well balanced. I wish I'd picked up more of it!
