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.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2012
22 oz bottle served in a Southern Tier tulip glass. Enjoy by 12-21-12, batch 3. A: Pours a perfectly clear amber color with a one finger of height pure white head forming on the pour. It dissipates to a frothy collar that leaves some sticky lace behind. S: Some grapefruit, orange and lemon peel citrus. Sweet malts and just a touch of green onion in the periphery. T: More green onion up front, but it doesn’t hinder the overall flavor profile. Sweet malts, some citrus zest and sticky grapefruit. As the beer warms it definitely takes on more of a sauteed vidalia onion taste to it. M: Clean and crisp with a light medium to light body. Medium carbonation level. O: It was better when it was colder, but as it warmed the onion-like qualities became more pronounced. The alcohol was really hidden though and I would have guessed it was 7% or so. Serving type: bottle

Bomber of 12.21.12. This is some good stuff! Pours cloudy yellow orange. Aroma is full of citrus hops. Very smooth, nice caramel stickiness and finishes with a citrus orange juice bite.

rougeau13 (2016) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Pale, clear amber with a small frothy off-white head and spotty lacing. Aroma of flowers, citrus, bread, earth, and a little dank. Taste is really well balanced, tons of fresh hop flavors against a mildly sweet malt backdrop. Medium bodied; smooth. Excellent.

Pours a clear golden color with a thick white head. Aroma is full of big time hops, pot, pine, grapefruit, bread, bark, and some earthiness. Flavor is the same. Very hoppy and very complex. Medium to full bodied brew. Leaves a hoppy and pine finish. Wow.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2013 7/4/13: Bomber. Pours light gold and clear with a small head. Bright and glowing. Nose is aromatic, pine cones, sweet. Taste is sweet, tons of piney hops with quite a bit of malt balance. Sticky and viscous. Interesting and tasteful. NIce.

Pours a golden yellow orange with small white head. Aroma is incredible dry hop, citrus, mango, pineapple. Taste is sweet malt, honey, citrus dry hop again followed by bittering hops coming in at the finish but not cloyingly bitter like most west coast ipa’s. Great beer

12.21.12 Thanks for the hookup Brian. Pours a crystal clear medium amber color with a decent sized white head that slowly dissipates to a cap. Citrus and pine fill the air as soon as I pop the cap on this one. Upon closer inspection my nostrils are delighted by hints of bread and caramel that have been devastated by an onslaught of hoppy goodness. Pepper and green onions mixed with grapefruit pine and resin round out the nose nicely. The flavor is a bit sweeter than I imagined based on the smell. Solid shot of caramel sweetness up front followed by a hint of alcohol and a smattering of pine citrus and onion. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet resinous mouthfeel. Very nice IPA, but I found the body a bit thicker than I normally expect and a hint more sweetness than I prefer.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2013 12/21/12 version On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a clear amber with a big off-white head. Nose is huge powerful grapefruit and pine. Taste is very bitter citrus with some sweet malt unbalanced but that is fine with me. Mouthfeel is medium and very lingering bitterness. Great brew by Stone. 04/01/13 version. Bottles. Very similar to the previous version, except more balanced and more pine. Very smooth and tasty. This is fantastic! Best brew by Stone. I have searched town buying as much as I can find. This now ranks as one of the top IIPAs I’ve ever had.

Clear golden pour with a white head. Great piney, grapefruit, mango, spicy hop aroma. Taste is resinous, piney, and spicy with some citrus rind. Great bitterness. Slick on the palate with low carbonation. Good stuff.
