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.

4.12/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look: Brilliant and crisp golden orange color. Not a huge head like expected. 1-2 finger head with a fairly rough pour. Head dissipates rather quickly, but has a nice 1/4 inch of bubbles continuously being replenished.

Smell: Not overly aromatic, but has some funk, pine, juniper, and citrus. Quite a Catty aroma.

Taste: A decent hop bite upfront. There is a battle between sweet malt and bitter hops. The hops burst first with peach, pineapple, and pine. There is definitely more cattiness in flavor than in the aroma. The bitterness backs off and then more malt flavors come through.

Feel: Light-Medium bodied. Felt a bit thinner than most IPAs.

Overall: Great IPA. Not the best, but very good. Not the biggest fan of Catty hop IPAs, but this one is well balanced with other flavors.

Big fan of this beer - my absolute favorite beer.

This version is the best so far. So glad they open a brewery on the east coast.

The stone enjoy by's are always a bit different but I love them. For one that is easy to find this one should stand the test of time. The hops are great and probably one of my favorite west coast IPA's very nice and very smooth.

very good IPA nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to ipas of higher calibers such as focal Banger and heady topper than I'm used to. Tastes good smells good. nothing to write home about very well brewed beer and very fresh
