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 oz pour, small tulip, Best By 10/31/17.

Clear golden rod with a small off white head.

Full and juicy nose with tangerine, kiwi, yuzu.

Orange and tangerine, juicy, resinous, and closes out with medium bitterness. It's on the dry side and the alcohol is well hidden.

Drying with soft carbonation.

It isn't as intensely hoppy as promised. It's a good double IPA that avoids being sweet or boozy.

First impression: Wow! Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear gold with white head. Huge aroma of citrus floral and pine. Excellent nose. Taste is similar to the nose with robust citrus and floral bitterness mixed with a mild caramel sweetness. It's all about the bitterness here though. Medium bodied with some nice stickiness to the palate. One of the best IPAs I've had. Well done guys!

Nice head with constant bubbles rising. The smell is citrusy with definite pine and noticeable alcohol...but the overall impression is freshness. The taste is more grapefruit than the nose and the bitter hoppines just screams fresh. Feel is lighter than expected considering all the aromas and taste. Another winner from Stone.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

L: Cloudy, orangish, frothy white head, much carbonation
S: Hops, hops, hops, a mix of citrus and tropical smells.
T: Follows the nose, an explosion of bitter citrus hops perfectly balanced with sweet tropical hop flavors.
HOP VARIETIES NUGGET, SUPER GALENA, SIMCOE, DELTA, TARGET, AMARILLO, CASCADE, GALAXY, CITRA, NELSON
SAUVIN, MOTUEKA & HELGA. Sound like overkill? It works. The taste is so fresh, amazingly creamy and
smooth, 90 IBUs, 9.4% ABV, and you would never know it, no alcohol taste. While I do not support limiting supply
to drive up demand, and I wish this was more widely available, the time limited smaller batch approach probably does
make a difference.
O: Awesome, it doesn't get much better than this.
