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.

On tap at Beer Culture in NYC. Appears crystal clear with a golden hue and a tiny white head. Pure hop aroma and flavor. Packs a lot of alcohol yet very drinkable. Flavor is a nice (really, perfect) balance between sweetness and hoppiness. I am not a big fan of IPAs but this one is great.

Another perfect brand from this co. Super nice hoppy aroma that covers the spectrum from pine to grapefruit. Taste matches perfect body and clarity. Awesome

LoganL166 (25) - Iowa, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Enjoy by 12-26-14 poured into a tulip. Pours a clear golden orange with a thick white head that leaves a nice lacing. Aroma of hops, resin, citrus and herbs. Taste is clean hops that leave a really clean finish. Texture is nice and not oily at all. Darn good IPA

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 Had on tap at Stone Liberty Station in San Diego. Pours a clear gold. Thin white head. Aroma is malty and some citrus. Really nice beer. This was the 12-26-14 version. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MayorOfSudz (52) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Bomber poured into tall glass. Nice lacing. Superb piney citrus blast. Very fresh hop notes bordering on just an absurd dank flavor. Good bitterness to level it out. Hides the 9.4% extremely well. A favorite, for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska från bottlerock. Gyllenfärgad med vitt skum. Barrig och sötfruktig doft. Blodapelsin. Pepprig smak med touch av melon och hö. Relativt rå smak med bra beska

Flaska från BottleRock LA. 12-05-14. Kryddig doft med inslag av anis. Fruktig med tydliga inslag av honungsmelon i början. Mycket bra.

Enjoying this not by 10/31/14, but rather on 11/7/14, so take that for what it’s worth. Pours a hazy orange with small head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is citrus and pine hops, nothing too special. Taste at the beginning lot sweeter than expected, then transitions to a nice mellow bitter, with the sweetness still lingering in the background. Really nice, full bodied mouthfeel. I love that this is not hopped to the extreme (which has been my experience with most Stone beers); the balance here is excellent. Very tasty. And definitely fine to enjoy AFTER the "best by" date.

Koskela (409) - Marysville, California, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Enjoy by 10.31.14 I get a hoppy and sweet aroma but a great balance in aroma in this pale almost clear orange brew with almost no white head. The taste is sweet and bitter battleing on my tounge. A great balance. Done. Medium body and a great taste. I cant wxplain.

60minuteman (1090) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle 10/31/14. Poured into glass. Yellow or gold pour, creamy white head. Aroma is pungent citrus, big spiced hop and grass. Flavor hits strong on pine, hop and citrus notes. Lemon zest, possibly grapefruit. Finishes medium body and quite bitter but also quite delicious.
