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.

22 oz. bomber poured into a tall Riedel Pilsner glass.

Pours crystal clear with a nice bright white head. Lots of lacing. Smell is unremarkable. Moderately sweet up front, followed by a sharply bitter back. Bitterness is akin to grapefruit peel. Has a great texture and weight -- crisp due to great carbonation with a medium body.

This is a great beer, but lacks aroma. Tastes very good, but that 'something special' is missing to make it a great beer.

Amber copper with a medium, fluffy beige head, leaving soft peaks of lace.

Smell is peach, grapefruit, and light caramel malt, with taste following almost identically, which is a commendable feat. Taste adds a touch of resin.

This is usually a well balanced IPA for Stone, who sometimes likes to go overboard with bitterness. Some alcohol does make itself known.

Most recent: a 7/4/16 fresh on draft in the first week of June. Can't add or subtract anything significant for 4/20/17. Maybe a little breadier, and also, somehow seems like a wet hopped/hop harvest brew, with lighter, more floral notes.

Copper, plenty of carbonation rising, light to medium body
Piney malty smell, deeper tropical sniff, smells potent with high alcohol content
Taste is mildly fruity and bitten off promptly by bitterness that smooths away with the maltiness, good balance on the hop side
Finished heavy in booziness, not the kind of style you want to drink quickly but that'd be better
