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.

Not sure why this particular date gets its own entry. I wonder why that is...

Nice head, great clarity, and an outstanding nose. Citrus and strawberry and dank.

Huge taste. A big, juicy, citrus hop bomb with a malt center and a piney finish and aftertaste. A lot is going on here. This is delicious and is eminently drinkable at nine point four.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look- 4.5-Gold color, slight haze, white head that lasts a little while, lots of lacing.

Smell-4.25- citrus hops, mango, apricot, peach, boozy. Sweet malt mixing with the hops, but hop forward. Clean ferment smell. Retronasal follows up with the dankness.

Taste-4.75- follows the nose, sweet citrus up front with sweet fruit like mango and melon following up with a boozy taste. Lots of complex hop flavor melding with the malt sweetness. Dank hop bitter lingers but not overpowering.

Feel-4.25- medium carb, over medium body without being too heavy for the style. Alcohol warmth builds as pallet warms up. A slight creamy carbonation feel, not spritzy.

Overall-4.5- one hell of an ipa! Will buy again and again. No question.

Possibly the best beer I've ever had. I don't write reviews much, but this one blew me away so much I had to say something. Has the most complex, intense IPA flavor. The usual grapefruit, pine flavor but just more...interesting.

Copper color with white head / thin lacing.
This has the cat-piss element in the smell and in the taste (Citra?). Although not overwhelming, it affects the overall experience. Glad I got a chance to try it. Will not buy again.

enjoy by 4-20-17
bright clear amber with a nice white head
some good lacing and the head breaks down
but stays around.scents of pine are strong and fruit
notes as well. dank hoppy scent noted
pine, orang and grapefruit tastes, not real zingy
on the tongue.just a tad of sweeter fruitiness with later sips
dense , chewy mouthfeel.but a clean finish.nothing lingers
textbook example of the style imo.

-golden and clear with creamy white head.
-strong hoppiness, with slight flavoring of peaches and tropical fruit.
-gentle malt in advance, then it builds quickly to a surge of hops. danky af.
-polished with bitterness and dryness as it wraps it up.

L: This beer looks like what a double IPA should look like. Great carbonation, Half a finger of fluffy head that leaves perfect lacing as you drink it down.
S: Grapefruit, grapefruit pith, malt sweetness, dank earthy pine, pineapple.
T: Powerful bitterness fades quickly to citrus, pineapple, then fades to another earthy dank sweetness. Grapefruit, Bitter citrus flavors linger as a lemony tartness tickles the tongue for just a few seconds.
O: I wish I could buy this all the time. Stone is amazing and will always be ahead of the craft beer game. This IIPA is outstanding. BRAVO!
