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, orange color with a little over a finger of white head. The smell is fantastically strong from the moment the bottle is opened. Strong smells of tropical fruits, especially citrus like tangerines and oranges, some smell of peaches. Dank. Smells delicious. Taste is solid, hoppy bitterness from the start, not overpowering but it's there. Sweet and citrus, some pine notes, alternates a lot with the malts. Nice, medium body beer. Has a lingering bitterness to it. Overall its solid and nice, glad I grabbed a six pack, might get another one.

Top 5 IPA of all time. Perfectly brewed. Reminds me of the Northeast IPA's that get all the accolades even though most of the country can't taste them.

Thank you Stone for bringing us this gift of awesomeness!

A clear amber orange with loads of carb rising, and a finger of white foamy head that sticks. In the aroma, I get lots of citrus (grapefruit, orange, lemon), a decent amount of the dank, but, not quite oniony vibe, and a nice touch of caramel malt. In the flavor, nice waves of hops and malts that alternate back and forth from sweet to bitter, ending with a pleasant bitter note. Dank is mostly what I'm picking up in the flavor, which is great, but, I think the nose gives off a little more in the way of the citrus. Still, a very tasty brew. The feel is, above average carbonation, full feel, a little oily up front, and, quite dry on the finish. I can see why it's in demand. Nice stuff.

Enjoyed the 4.20.17 release of this. Lots of tangerine, clementine, and other lower-citrus citrus. Smooth, juicy, almost sweet mouthfeel with little lingering aftertaste or bitterness. Remarkably light feeling for over 9% ABV. Absolutely the best offering I've had from Stone.

90/100

L: hazy golden orange with lots of hoppy carbonated bubbles, misty white lacing that stains glass, looks delicious.

A: piney, hoppy, peaches, and other tropical fruit

F: slightly dank but bitter and tongue numbing as expected

T: piney, resin, hop oil, melon, grass, hints of peach but not strong enough, bitter

O: It was delicious and smooth but I was hoping for a more tongue numbing bitterness hop mash which I feel I get more hop mash from Ruin.

4-20-17 ventage. Pale gold appearance with minimal white head. Strong very clean citrus fruit aroma with hops. Taste is strong citrus fruit and hops but very smooth and without any hint of alcohol.

Probably my favorite non vintage stone beer along with Xocoveza. An accessible cream of the crop west coast double IPA. I didn't try the chocolate version, but I know others who have. I'm glad it's back to it's base beer roots - for now. Enjoy by 4-20-2017
