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.

enjoy by 7.4.14 650ml poured into snifter. enjoyed 6/17/14 so half way to "expiry"

nice citrus and floral nose. has some slight bitterness on the nose. really hop forward taste, loads of citrus, floral notes, and a slightly bitter and astringent finish. also notice an odd flavor I cant pinpoint in there but it doesnt detract from the fact that this "devastatingly fresh" ipa is ridiculously good. thanks to @64vdub for the hookup!

Enjoy by 10.31.14 opened 10.20.14 at Craft Beer Market with Jodi from the Stone sales team. Much like the previous with a nice malt profile, gteat citrus taste and not a harsh bitterness

A- Golden yellow and crystal clear. White head that fades leaving some thin lacing.

S- Wow. Dank as hell. Citrus, mango, pine. This is what a West Coast IPA should smell like.

T- A hop bomb in the best possible way. Grapefruit, tropical fruits, pine. Slightly bitter. Very slight alcohol taste but the 9.4% is well masked.

M- Medium body with a bitter/dry finish. Decent carbonation.

O- Outstanding. Ranks among the best DIPA's I've tasted.

This is one of my favorite beers. I have had several iterations both in bottles and on tap. I don't notice a big difference between them, although some have said they thought the 4-20 was more dank. To that I would say: maybe. You would never know this is a 9.4% beer when drinking it, so be careful

Color- light gold / yellow - much lighter than you would expect for a beer with this ABV

Smell - An explosion of pine, then more pine - a little bit of other aromas, citrus floral

Taste - it is a christmas tree in a glass. Again a ton of pine resin broken with a citrus finish

mouthfeel - crisp and a little sticky on the finish

01/26/14 From bottle labeled 01/09/14. Can't get much fresher than that outside the brewpub. That being said I wasn't knocked out.

In fairness I never was much of a hops fan and this follows the Stone model of catering to that taste. Pine was the flavor of note but the lack of depth was striking. I applaud the effort, but no cigar.
