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.

Had this on 4/27, so as would be expected, the hop flavor was starting to head for the background. This brought forward a sweetness that was indeed "devastatingly dank". I'm not sure if it was the fact that I enjoyed "after" or just the beer itself, but this was a more than commendable addition to the Enjoy By series.

-light color with a very creamy looking head with good cup lacing
-very bright hop scent light citrus/ tropical
- amazingly crisp hoppy beer, slight bitter bite at end
-perfect slight dryness leaves the mouth watering for more
- one of the best beers i have had in the ipa style

I can respect this beer AND see why folks like it, but I consider it average.
Stone makes better DIPAS. This one Unbalanced, thick, bitter in the wrong way, RICH instead of REFRESHING, and a lingering aftertaste I can only describe as...unforgiving. I liked previous years better (this was 4/20 {2015}). I get what they were going for...they just didn't quite get there.

4-20-15-- drank twice in two weeks, just before "Enjoy By" Date. Also had this on draft (different date) some time ago. One of the best IPAs I've ever had.
