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.

At Butcher and the Boar at a Founders tap takeover but I thought I’d switch it up. I preface with the fact i am not a huge IPA fan but this beer is good. Floral and citrusy aroma with a similar taste and you def get the bitterness and pine on the back end but not too bad. Well balanced!

Poured from 22oz bottle - bottled 4/12/13 - into a snifter a nice light golden color, which was somewhat translucent. Aroma was overpowering citrus- grapefruit especially, with some floral coming through as well. Mouthefeel is a standard body and carbonation for a typical ale. Taste is amazing - hops up front then a bit of sweetness, similar to aroma a big grapefruit element. The finish seems to be clean but then a nice bitter bite closes it out. Overall this is a fantastic DIPA, prob in my top 5. I need to get my hands on another bottle this week if I can.

5-17-13 bottle. clear pale gold with a small head. orange and pineapple hop notes with a hint of cantaloupe in aroma. intensely bitter hop juice flavor. light body with some abv heat in the finish. i like a little more malt presence than this one has, but yes, they accomplished the task of getting an incredibly fresh 2ipa in the hands of a thirsty dude in GA.

Isn’t rating ANY Stone IPA as excellent a little redundant? Of course this thing is awesome: fresh, hoppy, resinous, and citrus-forward. Enjoy your "Enjoy By" today!

5-17-13 version. Citra hops pronant on the nose - love that fresh cat pee. Lots of fruit mango. Nice finish. One of my favorite Stone beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amazing aroma. Pine and citrus. Pours a pale amber orange with a decent cream head. Very hoppy and tons of citrus. Intense and varied palate.

Bright clear gold color with minimal white ring of a head and little to no lacing. Aroma and flavor have sweet smooth hops with a slight clean bitterness. Nice citrus flavors. Balanced well and super drinkable

May enjoy by date. Golden pour, lasting creamy white head, huge lacing. Nose is big sweet sticky tropical fruits, lots of mango. Big on the tropical fruits, not very resiny and piney like many other hoppy stone beers. Taste is huge sticky ripe mango, good malt background though very mineral, hop resin. Very smooth, creaminess from the lasting head and proceeding oily mouthfeel. You’d never guess the abv. Like this much better than (fresh) PtE, Heady, Hopslam, Dreadnaught, etc. I’m sure I’m in the minority but this is the best DIPA I’ve had.
