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.

By 5/17 tap at proof. Hazy straw golden with white head. Sweet malt candy lemon and grapefruit. Some pine straw. Taste is sweeter than expected and not as bitter. Very floral and citrus grapefruit. Good but too sweet to have more than a pint.

05-17-13 on tap at Stone. Clear with big sticky head that laces with every drink. Huge aroma of fruity hops - lots of pine with lots of fruity tropical fruits. Taste is very sweet and very fruity. This is a fantastic IIPA, I can’t stop thinking about how much money they must spend on screenprinting these bottles for each batch. I guess that has nothing to do with it. Great beer!

This was a 22 oz. bottle and was the 05/17/13 version. Poured a clear golden color with an off-white head. Big nose of citrus and pine hops. .Mediium plus body. Flavor is a good balance of caramel malts and the flavoring and bittering hops. A really easy drinking DIPA, and fresh tasting it is indeed

tom10101 (4243) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
Bottle (22 oz). Enjoy by 05.17.13 Golden with a medium persistent fluffy white head and good lacing. Aroma is piney with citrus, tropical fruits and perfumy hops... it’s also somewhat a little boozy. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with tropical fruits, pine, citrus, malt and alcohol. Medium body. Very good hop bomb with a little too much residual sugar for my liking.

Awktoberfest (347) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - APR 28, 2013
For a double it's quite good... Awesome hop aroma... The great thing about this double is its lack of perceived sweetness and isolated hop flavors... Not your standard double ipa with sweetness throughout and nothing more than a less than appealing muted flavor and aroma... This has alot of what many doubles are missing... Good double ipa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lamas (1494) - Washington DC, USA - APR 28, 2013
22 oz. bottle. 05/17/13 edition. Bottled on: 04/12/13. A clear golden amber pour with a thick beige head. An extremely pungent & rich aroma of pine trees, grapefruits, oranges, zesty citrus rinds, melon, some caramel maltiness, and a fair amount of spice. Medium to full-bodied. Plenty of rich caramel maltiness upfront taste-wise to keep things from being too one-sided. Biscuity/crackery. Slightly grainy. Loads of grapefruits and zesty citrus rinds at the end. A drying finish that lingers a bit. Some warming alcohol and spiciness throughout. This is great stuff, but still a bit of a gimmick. I’ve had better local beers fresher out of the tanks than this (DC Brau OTWOA).

HonusWagner (1872) - Florida, USA - APR 28, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2013 Um, what’s the hype all about? This is a pretty generic grapefruity IPA with the caramel malt background that I’d expect from an EC brewery attempting a WC IPA, not the hype beast from Stone I’d heard all about. Not pungent enough, not fruity or flavorful enough, to be anywhere near amazing. Not bad, mind you, but far from great. re-rate: Way better than initially thought on first taste. Nice mango note, light sweetness, not as bitter as my first try at the beer.

Bottle - Enjoy by 5-17-13. Pours amber with a small, white head. Aromas of citrus and pine hops with light caramel and a hint of spiciness. Great pine and citrus hop flavor with a caramel and somewhat bready backbone. Nice bitter citrus and pine finish with some added floral and spicy hop notes. Smooth, tasty and not even a hint of the alcohol. A great IPA.

Pours golden with yellow-white head. Aromas of citrus rind, big hops, with a sweet note-caramel maybe. Herbal hops on the palate along with citrus, and a salty caramel finish. Was excellent right out of the fridge but turns green as it warms ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
