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.

Block (1597) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 14, 2015
This is the 2.14.15 batch. Golden pour with a fluffy white head.Aroma is familiar with hops, citrus, syrup. It smells like it’s going to feel sticky. A slight punch up front, smooth body, sweet middle. The bite comes at the finish. Hops and alcohol. A slight lingering heat. Wet finish.

Amazing IIPA that comes in with a citrus burst and a mild bitterness. Grab as many as you can if you see them! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12/14/15. On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours a hazy light amber with a thin white cap. Aroma is a ton of fruit and a little dankness. Taste is dank hops with almost no alcohol. This beer could get dangerous.

Enjoy by 2/14/15...damn this really is packed with hops and a very tasty finish. Floral, pine, and citrusy galore. I sat on this bottle for a week and wish it was the first I had actually cracked open before some others. Excellent job on this batch grab it while you can.

Big, beer, big head, big flavor, big hoppy presence, big bad Mojo, And a bit extreme. I can’t help but wonder if ten years from now Stone will still be making new batches of this and what my reaction will be. Will I still think that its big and over the top? Time will tell.
