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.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2013 Batch 12.21.12... picked up out of state thanks Nick! Getting resin, grapefruit and some other sort of tropical... maybe mango? Smells fantastic. Pours a clear orange will a slight head. Taste follows and I get the grapefruit and mango(?) upfront. Slightly bitter, really easy drinking for 9%. Would definitely seek out again! Batch 05.17.13 bottled on 04/12/13 drank on 04/21/2013. Again, heavy tropical fruit scents and pretty much everything I said above again. Great beer and props to Stone for keeping this going and delivering this time to my home state.

12-21-12. Pours a nice clear copper with a large white head. Aroma and taste of earthy hop, citrus, wheat, malts and pine. Texture is light and crisp, yet creamy. Moderate carbonation. Excellent, easy sipper!

12-21-12. Its the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine. Clear light amber pour with a white head. Aroma is fruity hops, pineapple. Taste is a nice malt backbone, balanced nicely with the fruity hops. Nice fruity hop aftertaste. A great beer to end it all!

Strykzone (5147) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Tapat Three Kings. Clear with minimal head. The most noticeable facet to me were the hops that had a distinct onion taste. It was light on the malts and they seemed to be pale. This was crisp and uncomplicated. Nice.

musinj6 (420) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Pours a golden clear with two finger head that gives good medium to heavy lacing. Lemon lime hop aroma. Toasted malt in the background. Medium to full body with medium but soft cRbonation. Long pleasant bitter finish. Not as tongue biting as the typical stone ipa. I would say this one is better. Delicious

wlajwl (4125) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Aroma is pine, malts and very grassy hops. The flavor is citrus, light grapefruit, mild nutty undertones and a very long and bitter finish.

Golden yellow, clear. Generous white head. Chemical pine smell, celery, lemon. Bitter explosion that subtles down a little at the end. Yeast bread, cracker at the end as well. A little too much bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(bottle - STLCOB tasting) Enjoy by 12/21/12 - gold with hint of green. Aroma of pine and some grapefruit. Flavor is pine, resin, grass. Could have been balanced with a bit more malt.
