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.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Look: A light amber color with very little head. Typical for the style.

Smell: Holy dank! This beer smells as piney as a Christmas tree. Picking up a ton of tropical fruit; papayas, mangos, pineapple maybe some stone fruits and a ton of grapefruit. Smells great!

Taste: Amazing. Super piney and fruity! Getting a slightly floral note that isn't as pronounced as the tropical fruits. Delicious!

Feel: Feels pretty typical of a double IPA; slightly chewy and very mouth coating. Drinks really smooth for the relatively high ABV.

Overall: Stone really hit a home run with this beer! With a little more refining, this beer could compete with the likes of Pliny and Heady Topper. An amazing feat for a large brewery. Glad this beer is widely distributed and not entirely expensive.

One of my favorite IPA's. I get this every time it comes around. Excellent balance, very fresh (as expected). A great concept by Stone, and it seems to work every time.

Substantial clarity, looks professional as can be. Even manages almost a full inch of head on it, something amazing given the massive amount of hops/hop oil here.

Got them proprietary tropical fruit hops working to the bone here. Good stuff. Super dry mouthfeel and taste, hops seem to be in the amarillo/citra/simcoe vein. Not a lot of bitterness. Alcohol easily covered up. Damn good stuff, no need to chase small bottle counts when Stone kills it like this, especially in the six pack format.

Aroma of tropical fruits, mango and citrus
Tastes awesome! Perfect amount of bitterness along with citrus and pine. Smooth and Delicious!

Enjoy by 12/25/15 poured into a pint glass.

Clear, orange/golden with a beautiful white creamy/foamy head.

Scents of fruit, tropical, mango, pineapple, citrus, pine.
Amazing smell.

The hops are noticeable in the taste but not overpowering. An amazing IPA. The clarity, the smell, the taste, the mouthfeel.... its all there. Also the alcohol is well hidden. Tastes like a 7% to me.

Loooooove it.

Look: 12.25.15 - enjoyed on 12.7.15. Pours a beautiful, clear orange-amber copper with a huge, frothy white head and great lacing.

Aroma: Full of tropical fruit, dank piney hops, and citrus (guava and slight grapefruit). The sweet malt is apparent in the aroma as well, but comes out more in the taste.

Taste: Phenomenal and full of piney hops, tropical fruit, and citrus with the sweet malt rounding out the profile towards the end.

Feel: Medium carbonation, extremely smooth and drinkable. Excellent west coast IPA.

Enjoy by 25.12.15, had on 7.12.15 at Craft & Draft in Amsterdam.
A great Imperial IPA, heavy on the tropical fruit - mango, pineapple, passion fruit - mixed with a healthy amount of dank piny hops, on top of a sweet, malty body. This beer kind of reminded me of Pliney the Elder, but it was not nearly as balanced (the bitterness and alcohol were a bit rough around the edges) and the texture was not as smooth. Other than that, an excellent beer.

Great IPA tastes like floral honey, piney hops, citrus, and apricots. Very tasty, really impressed with this one. You can really tell it's fresh by the taste it leaves in your mouth.
