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.

A: Pours a golden orange with an almost gray ring of head.\r\n\r\nS: Nose is utterly dominated by tangerine, fresh orange and other similar fruits, with just a touch of simcoey garlic.\r\n\r\nT: Fresh orange juice, citrus peel, onion, tangerine, tropical fruit, papaya. Delicious.\r\n\r\nM: Full bodied and smoother than your average IPA.\r\n\r\nO: By far my favorite beer from Stone. Uncharacteristic of them, hop-profile-wise, and that is a massive plus for me.\r\n\r\nNote: My version was best by 2.15.13, and I had it a couple days after this particular batch\'s release (It wasn\'t even on the shelf yet).

Enjoying a fresh 2.14.14. Glad to get this again in georgia. The last we got of this was 4.20 and i did not stock up enough. Once you crack this bottle you know you got something special. The aroma is funky is all the best ways. Great appearance and nice fluffy bit of head. Flavors are citrus, pine and ripe tropical fruit. Bitterness dominates the party in the best way. Mouth is just the slightest bit thin for a double ipa, but it wont detract from the overall experience. Alcohol is there for sure but not at all in the way. One of the best beers i have had since the last Enjoy By. Cant believe my local package store only got one case (!). Great representation of a west coast ipa and i will be buying each and every botle i see of this stuff.

A DIPA does not get much better than this. The top tier beers of the style come to mind when you taste and smell this beer. Citrus, pine, are all present in both taste and smell. You cannot taste the ABV at all. The appearance is unbelievable. If you can get this beer, buy it.

Bomber poured into a matching Stone pint glass. The brew appears a perfectly clear golden copper color. A white finger appears atop and fades back leaving patchy lace on the glass. A swirl revives a finger effortlessly.

The aroma is quite juicy with hops. Very tropical smelling with herbs and pine to give depth. A little catty, dank and floral character is also thrown in there. Really a lovely bouquet of hop aromatics that doesnt really leave any room for other attributes like malt or even alcohol.

The taste is all hops. The flavor runs the entire hop gauntlet from tropical fruits and grapefruit to pine resin, dank herbs and even catty quality before getting rindy and pithy. This is so hoppy that is has a dusty hop flavoring that is slightly vegetative towards the finish but in a good way.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Despite displaying a ridiculous amount of hop flavor, it is not overly bitter. For being more than 9% abv, the alcohol is hidden really, really well. I would most certainly drink this again.
