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.

4.20.16, opened the first bottle a couple weeks ago, this is holding up fine with a couple weeks before the EB date.

Look is clear copper body with decent, off-white head. Dissipates rather quickly leaving some spotty lacing and a thin ring.

Smell is very piney. Dank and resinish, this is dominated by the hops early, with no sign of malts on the nose,

Taste is similar to the nose, except you get a biscuity, bready flavor rather early in the taste. It works really well with the sharp bitter notes. Citrus notes are somewhat hidden, but easily detected when you pay attention.

Feel is excellent, not too heave - which is how I think an IPA should be - but plenty of malt to balance out the hops. Very sticky, long finish. Great!

Overall, you can't go wrong with this one. Its in your face, but well rounded. Alcohol is not prominent, but this is still going to be a huge beer for anyone that doesn't have big beers regularly.

4-20-16. As I've come to expect from this series..., a great looking, smelling and tasting IPA from Stone. Crystal clear, an inch of head, wonderful lacing. Tropical and citrus hops, a sturdy enough malt backbone and just enough bitterness in the finish. Love it.

Crystal clear gold pour with a white head that leaves a moderate amount of lacing on the glass. The smell is grapefruit, pine and malt sweetness. The taste is grapefruit, peppery mango and massive piney hops. There is a nice sweetness and this lingers with the finishing bitterness. This is a quite tasty beer.

Pours a clear gold straw color with thick white head and bubbly residual lacing. Nose is mostly hoppy.Taste follows with some bitterness and some alcohol creep. Goes down smooth with moderate carbonation. A beautifully unbalanced, high octane IPA -undeniably Stone.
