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.

12.13.13 poured from a bomber into a imperial pint glass

A: Nice deep gold with nice lacing and head retention. Clear and really clean looking. Sticky head that clings to the glass.

S: Wow this is pungent! Hop bomb on the nose! Getting lots of piney and earthy fresh hops. Pine, lemon, lime, earthy hops, floral note, and no real malt to speak of. Smell sticks to the nostrils. Like sticking your nose in a handful of hops.

T: Taste a lot like it smells. Tons of hops come rushing in but not overpowering like a ruination. It's all fresh and quenching. getting pine, lemon/lime, back to pine, orange rind, slight white pepper, white peach, nectarine, and malts do make a brief appearance at the end to balance it out. Really tasty!

M: Super clean for what i would call a DIPA. It is smooth a clean on the tongue but the hops still make their presence felt with a nice resiny mouthfeel on the finish. To sum it up wet and clean. Almost no booze for a 9%.

O: Really well done. Nice and balanced considering the nose and i love how it has that quenching wet sort of feel too it. Makes this one super drinkable and sets it apart not only form stones other IPAs but most others i have had. I would put it up there with Pliny for sure. Stone does it again!

Enjoy By 12-13-13

Appearance: Really nice golden color with good carbonation and lacing, but little head retention.

Smell: Huge notes of freshly cut grapefruit. Like fresh citrus right off the vine.

Taste: Mimics the aroma quite a bit. Very citrusy/grapefruity. I was surprised by the slightly sweet malty finish, considering Stone's other IPAs.

Mouthfeel: Excellent for an IPA. Light and refreshing but not thin. A little highly carbonated for my taste, but that does add to the refreshing quality considering this is a high abv beer.

Overall: Amazing. I was shocked to see this in stock at my little liquor store in IL, and couldn't be happier I grabbed it. I'll be going back shortly to buy them out. A great, fresh IPA that's refreshing, citrusy and not ridiculously bitter. Try it if you have the chance!

Pours golden orange yellow with light sticky lacing that hangs around for a while.

Dank piney and citrusy hops are quite abundant, the hop resin sticks in the nose and slight caramel to note as well.

Pineapple, orange, mango, cantaloupe and an array of other tropical flavors explode over a muted caramel malt backbone.

Mouthfeel is thick and sticky with plenty of hop bite for any hop fiend to enjoy.

Overall, one of Stone's best and a favorite of mine.

Enjoy by 12.13.13 bomber. Lots of resiny smell, fresh thick hops, dry intense grapefruit aromas, colour is a bright clear gold, plenty of carbonation but the smoothest mouthfeel and no hint of alcohol, this is really awesome, smooth balanced profile, tons of hop character. Really well constructed IIPA and just an amazingly fresh tasty beer. Pleasant dry finish and a quenching juicy drinkability.

a - poured a two-fingers thick tan head into a snifter that left great lacing throughout. the body was a crystal clear amber color. i don't think i've ever seen a DIPA so bright.
s - piney hops with some floral aromas fighting through.
t - piney, citrusy, and floral as well with some breadiness and a hint of honey sweetness.
m - medium and finishes incredibly clean.
o - stupendous and delicious.

12.13.13 edition poured into a goblet

Pours a transparent golden sunset color with about a finger of white head that retains well. The smell is that of dank, oily, earthy hops, a bit of onion, lemon, grapefruit, and orange peel. The smell is amazingly fresh, so I would say Stone succeeded in what they set out to do. The taste follows the nose, delivering a resinous, mouth-coating blast of bitterness right up front along with grapefruit and orange notes. There is also a weird onion taste that detracts from the quality of the beer, but it's not overwhelming. The finish is dry and unapologetically bitter, leaving a tingling in the back of my throat.

Amazing IPA. Extremely fresh and full of citrus hops. As fresh as you can get out a bottle. Initial taste is full of fresh grapefruit, pineapple, and a bit of orange hops. Carbonation is absolutely perfect. The beer is so fresh tasting that it gives you quenching like taste.
