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.

One of the best beers I have ever had. It is rare that I give a beer at 5 star rating, but I simply cannot find anything wrong with it whenever they make a new batch.

Enjoyed 44 days after brewing, so this isn’t quite as fresh as Stone had intended.

Appearance: Pours amber-golden in pint glass, with heavy white suds but with a small head and little lace.

Aroma: Brilliant tropical hops, with citrus, pineapple, mango…absolute hoppy bliss!

Taste: Strong on the bitter note, with tropical hops yumminess emanating through. Definitely a potent imperial IPA, with bitterness lingering in the finish. A stunning IPA and wholly delicious.

I've had many iterations of this long running IPA series. Six in total, ranging from 10.31.14 to 10.31.16. My favorite was 04.20.15 which was had the best overall aroma and flavor. My rating of 4 is the combined score from all six I logged on untappd. In my opinion, this serious has run over due. It was a great idea, and they've proved their point. Its time to move on to bigger and better things.

Enjoy by July 25. Wonderful Double IPA. enjoyed on the porch in July on a beautiful summer day, certainly that helps. Great color and aroma from the pint glass we drank from. Nice citrusy taste and great mouth feel. Was unable to get the 12/25/16 version though tried. Keep 'em coming.

pours amber/orange, fairly clear

smell - piney and fruity

taste - nice balance of bitter with peachy fruit at the top, piney notes and sweet malt

feel - slightly on the thinner side of medium i would say

overall - highly enjoyable, i'd buy it again. very fresh taste, smell and feel - the hop flavors come alive, all nicely balanced
