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.

Pour: On draft at Smoke and Barrel in D.C. Poured into a tulip glass. Appearance: Deep amber. Clear. Good looking white head with lacing present. Aroma: Slight hop and juicy citrus...very subtle. Taste: Pepper up front. Anise-like licorice. Juicy hop and citrus on the back. Warming alcohol. Aftertaste: Huge anise kick lingers then recedes into a warming and juicy AIIPA. Overall: Very good - 4 out of 5.

Enjoy By 10-31-15

Appearance: Briliantly clear, golden color with one finger of bubbly head that fades slowly with nice lacing.

Aroma: Pine and grapefruit rind over sweet, buscuity malt

Taste: Big malt presense up front, a little chewey, with building earthy and pine bitterness. Theres a big hit of tropical fruit before the finish, which is quite lingering with pithy bitterness.

The Rest: At 9.4%, this is definately in IIPA territory with a body to back it up. Great aroma, but lacking a bit of balance.

Super clean. I think it is a smart move by Stone brewing to impose a rule that this beer be enjoyed as fresh as possible to taste what the brewmasters intended: a bright, explosive ipa that leaves you waiting for the next release.
