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.

I saw this on a menu yesterday in Birmingham while at work and immediately stopped by to try it for the first time on my way home. Served in a sniffer. Look is pale amber in color with about 3/4" of head. Pungent odor of hops and hops and hops with slight citrus quaffed around the hops. The imagery of hops soaked in a pool of zesty seltzer water came to mind. Taste seems to be a never ending profile of hops that flows in waves throughout. Complex indeed but so incredibly smooth and refreshing. Truthfully with the ABV and varieties used I anticipated it to be overbearing but in typical stone fashion, it was not. Incredibly smooth and balanced throughout and had a wonderful mouth feel that coated so well. I am extremely impressed by this IPA and encourage anyone to get one while its good.

Bright golden with large billowy head. No lacing.

Flavors are bright citrus with a heady hop bitterness overlaying malt brickwork. Carbonation is evident but not overbearing.

Pretty good.

Pours a golden-orange color, but I was surprised to see it this clear despite being labeled “unfiltered.” Lot of rising bubbles. Thin white head that lingers. Floral and tropical fruit aromas. Taste mirrors this, moderate amount of hops for the style, there are certainly more aggressively hopped IPAs. A delayed malt character presents itself to balance out the finish. Thick, lacy mouthfeel, can feel and taste this beer for about 20 minutes after finishing it.

One of my favorite Enjoy Bys. Diverse hop profiles.

Poured a light golden color in a Spiegelau glass with a 4 finger head.
Excellent head retention. The head lasts few minutes.

Wonderfully floral bouquet. Spice.

Very carbonated, spicy.

Grape, citrus taste. Before warming, the taste is dominated by hoppy spiciness.
Grape and citrus, and a smoother MF come into play with warming. Spicy hoppy finish.

Overall, an excellent excellent+ beer.
