COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 bottle, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and beer fans. 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.

Draft at Black Sheep Lodge. Absolutely gorgeous rich golden hue, thin head that dissipates fairly quickly, super hoppy classic IPA, wonderful mouthfeel. Could use one more spice or flavor element to add dimension and be utterly transcendent, but a fantastic double IPA in any case. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 ounce bottle, Enjoy By 04.01.13. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a clear golden/orange color with about a half inch off-white head. Head retention is good, and there’s also a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells mostly like citrusy (grapefruit, mango, tropical fruit) and pine hops, along with a bit of bready malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also the addition of some lemon peel, floral hops and a bit of onion. There’s an enjoyable bitter hoppy finish, too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s slick and sticky with moderate carbonation. It’s also easy enough to drink. I think it’s a good brew overall, I hope Stone keeps making it (and Ohio keeps getting some). $6.99 a bottle.

22 oz bomber of the 4/1/13 pours a orange color with a nice white head. Aromas of pine, citrus, grapefruit, just a huge hop nose. Full bodied, surprisingl balanced, big hop flavors, very good.

Fresh hop ale is the best and this one holds true. Every sip felt like I was chewing on a hop cone. Oh so refreshing and satisfying. Plus it looks pretty. I love this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2013 Clear amber gold withvwhite head. Hoppy citrus aroma and taste. Interesting. I like it, but not a top 10%.

BelgianBeerGal (3241) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Belmont bottle, 04.01.13 batch. Fairly typical IPA pour; clear with a foamy white head and nice lacing. Pretty big aroma of fruity hops that I can smell across the table while typing. Fairly light palate. Nice but not overpowering. A little lingering bitterness. Pleasant.

2.15.13 - Smokin’ Joe’s in Pittsburgh, on tap. Pours clear golden with lacing, white head. Stinky, grassy dominated nose with under tones of citrus, mostly lemon and orange. Taste is crazy interesting. Tastes like bong water should taste. Dank, funky, grass and herbs, lawnmower clippings. Honestly just brilliant marketing, and disturbingly fresh, funky IPA

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Enjoy by 04 01 13. Pours clear orange with a small white head and sticky lace. Nose is super herbal, light onion/scallion/vegetal, buttery oak. Flavor is similar. I had really hoped to like this but all I can smell and taste is a potent vegetal garlic/scallion and butter character. Very grassy and herbal. Light pine. No citrus, no florals. Not sweet but just a clash of hops that does not work for me. Damn. Did I get a bad bottle? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.1.13 edition. Definitely fresh flavors, but a little one dimensional. Very green, resinous. This is backwards for a DIPA, I actually want more body to balance the bitterness.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2013 Draft enjoy by 4/01/13. Pour has a golden color and a coat of white head. Aroma smacks down the citrus rind, grapefruit, tropical fruit, resins, and dry hops. So juicy and west coast. Mouth feel is medium and there’s average carbonation. Flavor is another hop assault, dry citrus rind, creeping bitterness, ruby grapefruit, and a clean lingering finish. Wow this is a bomb and truly is a double ipa.
