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 5/29/17
Bottled 4/22/17
No indication from the bottle that I detected, but this must be from Richmond. Unlikely that California beer made it by surface transport in two weeks.
Enjoyed from a local brewery tulip.

Golden, hazy appearance with 1/2 inch head which quickly dissapates to a persistent ring. Spotty lacing.
Citrus aromas, accompanied by characteristic Stone yeast note.
Grapefruit, mango, tangerine well balanced with the malts. Stone signature yeast melds with everything else in a harmonious unity.
Substantial body with dry finish. Not hot or boozy even as the 9.4 % ABV shines through.

I skipped at least two Enjoy By's prior to this one. Plenty of DIPA's available fresh these days. Really impressed by this vintage.

On tap into a pint glass. Pours clear golden color with a two finger head that sticks around and leaves lacing 1/3 way down the glass. Strong but balanced nose of peppery, dank, and citrus hops. Taste is complex but redeeming with pale malt, citrus, pine, and dank hops with clean finish. Medium body and medium high carbonation with a perfectly subtle bitterness.
Fantastic IPA. Enjoy by 4/20 isn't over-hyped.
