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.

BeerZombies1 (37) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 15, 2014
American double / Imperial IPA 9.4% ABV APPEARANCE: Poured a brilliant warm honey color, with a pillowy off white head. Head dissipated fairly quickly leaving nice lacing patterns. AROMA: If a grapefruit and a pine tree had a baby it's skin would smell like this! Lots of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, guava. Sweet malts and a bit of herbal slices come through. TASTE: followed the nose incredibly well. Fruit comes out very nicely followed with sweet maltiness and then the hops hit you. They hit hard and in your face. Bitterness is very present but begins to mellow in a great biscuity flavor on the backend. MOUTHFEEL: medium plus on the carbonation, prickly and tingly in the tongue. Slightly oily with a medium body. This is almost to easy to drink. OVERALL: I myself am a big fan of Stone, this IPA gave me everything I look for in a solid west coast outing. Delicious grapefruit & pine bomb with high ABV and high IBU that is easy drinking. RATING: 4.5/5 Zombie Heads! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light gold in color with a white foamy head. Grassy, citrus aroma. Taste is grass and lemon rind, with a little bit of sweetness that added a nice balance. Great IPA.

sailracer (404) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Tap. I tried this beer after having a Jack’s Abby Mass Rising which I think wrecked my palate for anything else. I couldn’t detect a lot of hop aroma or flavor in this. It was fairly smooth without a ton of bitterness, which I like, but the flavors weren’t as pronounced as I had hoped. I was having it on the last day to enjoy it 02-14-14, so maybe it had already exceeded it’s freshness date.

gkeh (218) - Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 Thy hype is warranted. Enjoy by 02.14.14 bomber poured into a Deschutes teku glass. Color is golden copper. Sticky head. I’m getting BIG citrus from the aroma. Maybe some hay and grass in there as well. Also getting a sweet aroma, can’t pinpoint it, however. Taste is resiny, floral, citrus hops. Hops Hops HOPS. I love it. Sticky, kind of oily mouthfeel. This is what an IPA should taste like.

demondeacon09 (44) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Enjoy by 2/14/14. Bomber poured into Spiegelau IPA glass. Enticing full aroma of citrus, mango, and banana. Light orange color. Medium off-white head that lingers. Taste of citrus, a hint of pine, and resinous hops. Little to no alcohol on the finish. Full, smooth palate with only a touch of bitterness. An amazing IPA that I feel lucky to have enjoyed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle of 2-14-14. Pours orange and gold with a very tight perfect off-white head. The aroma is grapefruit, pine, and tropical citrus fruits (pineapple, mango). The taste follows the aroma in layers. Medium crisp mouthfeel, smooth but just enough bite, signature stone. I love this series. This one is heavy on the tropical fruit all around. Awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gerbeer (1830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2014 On tap. 02-14-14 Pours an orange amber with light head. Aromas of toffee, pink grapefruit, and toasted malts. Flavors of toffee, pine, and grapefruit. Very good but not getting as much excitement as other reviewers. Maybe too close to the expiry date...

Great IPA. Very fresh and hoppy. Aroma is hops and grassy, while the palate is left with a smooth bitterness of a nice double IPA.

Underdogs88 (109) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Enjoy by 2/14/14. Huge piney and citrus aroma on the nose. White head with good head retention and lacing on the glass. The beer has a very slight haze. Hop flavor is big with piney hops dominating and mild grapefruit in the background. Malt flavor plays a backseat but is sufficient. The beer is medium body body with medium- high carbonation. The hop bitterness is nice and smooth. Overall, it's a great tasting double ipa (9.4% abv). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
