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: MAR 31, 2014 Tap at Haymarket in Chicago. No joke - this is world class. Clear golden pour with a spotty white head. Huge juicy citrus and floral hop - total west coast monster. Excellent. Update - 4.20.2014 version - yes. Dank. Beautiful. Awesome.

Remarkably clear beer with a fantastic hop kick and a very delicious aroma. Consumed fresh (as required) and not sorry about it! Awesome beer.

scarletfire65 (1071) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Draft at Stag’s Head. Grassy, herbal, resinous, strong citrus pith. Full bodied, shows its ABV. A heavy hitter.

Travlr (15102) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle 12-21-12 courtesy of Greg at Churchkey, thank you sir! Clear bright golden color, white head. Aroma of fresh grass and scallions. Taste is light and airy dry grass. Amazingly light considering the alcohol content.

radagast83 (5417) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle 12-21-12 courtesy of Greg at Churchkey as well. Many thanks, an unexpected surprise! Poured a vibrant golden color with a s very small white head. Aroma was a light resin note, with some grass character - not very citrus here, not a malt bomb, and not boozy. This was about perfect.

SrSilliGose (3296) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 14, 2012
Tap. Aroma of soap, mop bucket, dirty mop water, plastic. Gross. Taste does not match dirty rest stop bathroom air freshener aroma. Bitter. Resine pine astrinincy. Not very good. Quite bad. Maybe this was an off pour for some reason.

Bomber I picked up while in NY. Pours clear golden with white head. Aromas of pine, tropical fruit, resinous hops, and some sweet malts. Flavors of resinous hops, pine, loads of tropical fruit, sweet malt, bitter hops, and some booze. Hop profile is rather strong on this one. Nice job by Stone.
