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.

0,65 l bottle as a gift, batch 10.31.14.
Clear golden appearance with a nice stable foamy white head. Aroma of pine and malt, juniper and berries. Easy according to the abv with fine fresh hoppy character, resin and pine. Very balanced, very smooth, very drinkable - so: very dangerous ;-.)

Enjoyed this last evening. It is a VERY hopped beverage. The first was smack in the face hopped.However It leveled off and was a pleasure. VERY piney to the nose and on the finish. Loads of citrus in between.

Stone knows how to do IPAs. There really is nothing else you can say. Near perfect as far as i am concerned.

10/31/2014 draft at the local eatery and water hole San Diego. Poured a golden orange with a firm white head. Nose has stone fruit, pine and citrus. Fruit bowl. Taste is a wack of pine and stone fruit with a massive hop bill. Dry toasty bitterness. Soft carbonation. Sensational beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Enjoy by 10/31/14. Damn this is a nice change from usual IPAs. Unusually strong citrus taste in your face. Such a nice change from regular IPAs. This is rememberable. Stone does it right. Damn ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Enjoying the 10-31-14 version. Smells great - honey, pine hops, a little citrus and earthy aromas. Perfect dark golden color with a sticky white head. Tiny bubbles continuously rise to the top. The taste contains more citrus hops than pine. Not much up front, then the aftertaste hits you hard. Taste wise, I have had better IPA’s, especially from Stone. This one tastes like the Stochasity project grapefruit slam IPA made by Stone. A little too much citrus without enough malt sweetness to balance it. Where is the sweetness from the aroma? Palate is highly carbonated, but pretty good for the style. Overall good, but Stone has set the bar so high for me, especially for IPA’s. Try it, but don’t expect a score of 100.
