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.

Was a bit past the date so got it cheaply. Solid anyway. I will be visiting this beer again.

Another excellent batch by Stone, this one being the 2.14.15. I'd have to agree with another reviewer, the 12.26.14 and a couple others were better, the first one I tasted being so good I described it in terms that I wont repeat in public. This one looks great, clear gold, white head, beautiful herbal and citrus aroma, strong herbal taste with citrus undertones, and near palate wrecker carbonation and flavor.

3.14.15 Pi edition. Excellent as always. This version seemed a bit more harsh, more piney than the last.

Draft of EB 2/14/15 @ The Office on 1/23/15. Pours straw yellow with 1 finger of white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma is strongly citrus with subtle tropical fruits. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit sticky. Palate is robustly citrus and resinous hops balanced nicely against the malt backbone and alcohol. Nicely balanced DIPA. Probably the best Enjoy By since the 4/20/14.
