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.

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.

Nice job Stone. This is a fun beer! Keg was tapped on 4/18/13 at Stub n’ Herbs. Big resin nose. Slight white head, clear golden amber pour. Huge hops, bitter, underlying sweetness. Very nice beer.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - APR 18, 2013
Draft (and 22oz. bottle). Fresh, floral, piney and citric hop aroma, pungent, with notes of lemon, leafy herb, some very faint pale malt and sweetness in the background but pretty well dominated by hops. Hazy light-medium golden amber color, head is fine and dispersing. Flavor profile is extremely hop-focused also, with more fresh pine, lemongrass, grapefruit, spice/pepper, herbal tones, even a touch of garlic, which is there, but mostly overridden by the blend of other flavors so it wasn’t too offensive. Some very faint honeyish malt flavor late. Dry, resinous, finely effervescent mouthfeel, body is medium-full. Pretty tasty.

BeerKurve (520) - - APR 18, 2013
Batch label "Enjoy By 05-17-13"; Bottled on 04-12-13 Pours a clear orange color and leaves behind some good lacing. Strong Citrus Hops with some apple/cider notes and slight malt sweetness. Taste has very strong citrus & piney hops, along with honey and malts. Body is heavy and the carbonation is on the stronger side, so you have to take your time with this. Overall, a solid offering by Stone; Let’s hope they keep bringing this to Minnesota

portableparty (2281) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2013
22 oz. bottle (5-17-13). Pours clear bright orange amber with a large foamy sudsy white head that settles to a sudsy film and nice lacing. Aroma is nice bitter pine grapefruit mango pineapple and apricot. Taste is resinous with more bitter hops with flavors of pine grapefruit mango pineapple and tropical fruits with a subtle malt balance. Palate is crisp clean and finishes dry. Solid beer that I could drink regularly if price was right and readily available.

bookman10 (947) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2013 This is the 5/17/13 batch. Pours a clear, golden-copper with smallish head. Strong, strong hop aroma. Flavor is fresh citrus/pine hops, very bitter, with little other than hops, hops, and more hops to distinguish it. Luckily, that’s just what I’m looking for in a double IPA.

5/17/13 batch from bottle. Clear orange- golden color, thin white head. Big aroma of lime, grapefruit, orange, slight pine. Medium light body, crisp light carbonation. Taste is grapefruit and pine bomb, big round bitterness, mellows to light bitterness with almost tangy lime finish. Great fresh DIPA.
