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.

For freshness sakes, not much out there on the shelves will be as fresh as this exquisite citrus and floral double IPA. Defying the laws of retail beer distribution, the Stone Brewing Company delivers this release with a label displaying an enjoy by date not far from when some lowly clerkboy stocked the beer. Now, I'm not sure why anyone would buy a case of 4 6-packs and not be able to drink all of it in one night but for such plebians it is probably recommended you stick to more layperson varieties such as Coronas which, from personal experience, can be drunk a good five years from purchase date (a single bottle half-drunk was found behind my fridge after cleaning out my condo and still tasted fine). However, if you're into a fresh boozy beer with a flavor of manufacturing plant still in the bottle you have the King right here.

Definitely nice fresh hop character. Unfortunately bit of a sweet booze note to it as well but that is little tough to avoid in a beer this big. Definitely dank and resinous as advertised. Not a favorite but for a beer that is as available as this series, pretty damn good.

On tap at Verona Inn. A truly remarkable IPA. This one stands out. Bursting with flavor and freshness, the taste really hits home and is evident on this one. Strong dank, resinous hop presence throughout. Unique in my opinion. Recommended.
