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.

Enjoy By 04.20.18. I love the concept, perfect for a double. Happy to see it in 12 oz cans.

L: beautiful golden with creamy lacing
S: citrusy hops galore
T: smooth malts lead to hop explosion with peach undertones
F: full bodied, alcohol warms the skin
O: quintessential double IPA

A: Wonderfully clear and golden. Excellent lacing.

S: Sweet pine, peach, and citrus.

T: Clean and crisp. Citrus fruits, juicy peach, and pine.

M: Light and sticky. Once again crisp and clean. Exceptionally easy to drink.

O: I’ve been drinking IPAs for awhile, and a lot of them. This big guy is probably my all time favorite. This beer is the quintessential example of what a double IPA should be. It is old school. It doesn’t chase fads. It focuses on hops. Brewers that have simply labeled unfiltered IPAs as “NE Style“ should take notice of this bad boy and bow down accordingly.

Enjoy by 4/20/18. Canned on 3/14/18.

Pours a clear gold with an orange hue.

Devastatingly dank as the can says, yes, I would agree. This brew is resiny as the dankest dank.

A bit over the top. Straight dankness is not what I look for in a fresh brew, especially as the main component.

Enjoy by 04.20.18, 355ml can poured into a snifter.

Transparent orange amber color with thick creamy off-white head with good retention, the head gradually collapses to a long-lasting foamy crown and leaves some lacing behind clinging on the glass-side.

The aroma is purely a hop burst. Intense tropical, citrus, bitter orange, tangerine, peach, papaya, lime, dank, pine, and heavily resin that are back by sweet malt at the back end.

Fresh and intense hoppiness through the palate sensation, tropical fruit, citrus, bitter orange, tangerine, peach, papaya, lime, dank, pine, and heavily resin just like the aroma plus with solid bitterness lingering at the end. Malt is there too as the sweet support.

Medium body with some bold touch through the palate, the mouthfeel is smooth with rather low carbonation but proper to carry all the things well. Finish is typically dry.

Super fresh and devastatingly hoppy. Drink now as soon as you can.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Bottled 3/14/18. BB 4/20/18.

A: pours a bright, brassy gold with 1 finger bright white head and streams of small bubbles visible. Outstanding sheets of lacing.

S: piney citrus. A familiar resinous sweetness, with a lemony, citra undercurrent. Not terribly tropical, just resin and bright citrus.

T: slightly sweet, hoppy arrival. Fruity, juicy, citrusy, white bread middle. Lingering piney citrus hop bite. There's that vaunted dankness! Alcohol is well hidden, and given the highly drinkable texture, that is a dangerous combo.

M: I love the feel of this. Solidly midweight, but really clean, and with enough carbonation to keep it really lively on the tongue.

O: well, that certainly lives up to the hype. It is not really breaking new ground in its hop profile, but it is what I love - a classic style, perfectly executed. Furthermore, in what is kind of an insult to Stone, I think this is a really balanced beer. Certainly dominated by hops, but the sweetness of the malt stops it from being overbearing. Very nice. I'd say I'll buy it again, but I am getting old and can't hang with 9%-plus beers the way I used to. Really happy I finally got around to this.

For Enjoy by 04.20.18
What I like an IIPA to look like! Clear gold with volumnous white head, great retention and lacing.
Not as dank as I thought it would be given the date, but its there. Lots of mango and tangerine, though.
More dank in the flavor, lots more mango, not as much citrus. Bit of malt sweetness, and a clean, bitter finish.
A little stickier than I like, but not cloying.
There's a reason some breweries are so successful even when they're not chasing trends.
