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.

Bottle. Pours a dark golden color. Aroma of hops and wooden notes. Tastes extremely floral, yet has a nice complexity.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2014 From bomber, 2-14-14 batch: Crisp clear pour, orange in color. Orange flavor, orange on the nose. Slight foam. Finishes clean. More to come when I finish my last bomber. UPDATE FOR 4-20-14: Smells like grapefruit soda when cold. Wonderful. Two fingers of foam. As it warms, the grapefruit slides out of the way for orange, pine and Dank.

Enjoy By 02-14-14. On tap. Medium amber hue with decent white head. Aroma has huge notes of citrus, pine, catnip and caramel. Full bodied and oily with soft carbonation. Heavy bitterness on the finish. Overall a lovely skunky kindbud IIPA. Loved it.

HAd the 2-14-14. Hands down the best IPA I’ve ever had. Strong hop aroma, out of this world flavor. With a 9.5 alc%...it’s the beer that just keeps giving. Lovedit, can’t wait for the next batch

Silphium (3158) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Draft (2.14.14) at Taps 25, Lansing. Hazy medium orange body with a medium dense off-white head. Spicy, musky nose, catty with skunky cannabis or wild sweet cicely. Super-catty, medicinal, spicy, leafy body with anise/licorice and orange peel. Weird and potent.

22 oz bottle. Enjoy by 02.14.14. This one poured a glowing golden color and crowned by a small head of frothy foam that quickly washes away to streaks of lace. The aroma is very typical west coast IPA with notes of tropical fruits, mango, grapefruit, and orange to go with some pine resin. The hops are balanced by nicely by a toasted caramel malt base. The flavor follows suit with tropical fruits, grapefruit, and orange hops dominating, but balanced nicely by the biscuit and toasted caramel malts. The hops are still the star though. Medium bodied and incredibly smooth and easy to drink with just the right amount of carbonation and without the heavy feeling a double IPA can bring. The finish is nice and dry with a lingering hop bitterness that just begs another sip. This is just very light and easy to drink for the high abv which is dangerous for sure. Another winner for Stone and a stellar west coast style IPA to boot.

blankboy (5798) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
[Bottle (660ml)] Pours a slightly hazy copper-gold with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Lovely hoppy aroma, fruity, citrusy, piney, a bit hempy and resiny -- a bit sweet as well. Flavour of those same aforementioned hop notes, also a bit sweet and alcohol is pretty well hidden. Moderate to big bitter finish. So easy to drink for such a high abv. Medium bodied. A great DIPA.
