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.

4.19/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Bottled 3/14/18. BB 4/20/18.

A: pours a bright, brassy gold with 1 finger bright white head and streams of small bubbles visible. Outstanding sheets of lacing.

S: piney citrus. A familiar resinous sweetness, with a lemony, citra undercurrent. Not terribly tropical, just resin and bright citrus.

T: slightly sweet, hoppy arrival. Fruity, juicy, citrusy, white bread middle. Lingering piney citrus hop bite. There's that vaunted dankness! Alcohol is well hidden, and given the highly drinkable texture, that is a dangerous combo.

M: I love the feel of this. Solidly midweight, but really clean, and with enough carbonation to keep it really lively on the tongue.

O: well, that certainly lives up to the hype. It is not really breaking new ground in its hop profile, but it is what I love - a classic style, perfectly executed. Furthermore, in what is kind of an insult to Stone, I think this is a really balanced beer. Certainly dominated by hops, but the sweetness of the malt stops it from being overbearing. Very nice. I'd say I'll buy it again, but I am getting old and can't hang with 9%-plus beers the way I used to. Really happy I finally got around to this.

What I like an IIPA to look like! Clear gold with volumnous white head, great retention and lacing.
Not as dank as I thought it would be given the date, but its there. Lots of mango and tangerine, though.
More dank in the flavor, lots more mango, not as much citrus. Bit of malt sweetness, and a clean, bitter finish.
A little stickier than I like, but not cloying.
There's a reason some breweries are so successful even when they're not chasing trends.

Nice golden colored hue. Creamy white puffy head which remains. Smells like grapefruit, pine,orange marmalade, fresh dough cooking.Tastes like a super hoppy,fresh,tangy,not too astringent. Feels amazingly smooth ,crisp,well balanced .Overall this is a kick ass IPA !! I would guess it at a 7% A.B.V. it is actually 9.4. Really good stuff.

4-20-18 batch. Poured into snifter. Orange gold a little bit of haze. Strong citrus grapefruit aroma. Flavor follows the aroma with a very smooth follow through with an excellent hoppy finish. An absolutely fantastic beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Canned 3/14/18, consumed 3/25/18

Poured crystal clear honey amber with a decent head that left good lacing.

Aroma is a heavy but balanced whiff of danky and piney hops with citrus fruit. West Coast style amplified.

Taste follows aroma, but the malts come in here. Slightly less fruity than the aroma.

Mouthfeel is heavy, solid bitterness, but everything feels smooth with a clean, dry finish. Nothing lingering.

Overall, a very solid and strong West Coast DIPA offering from Stone. I find their regular IPA to be a bit too bitter; this one here, although much stronger, is far smoother and more balanced. Great price for a tasty, strong DIPA, also a plus.
