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.

Excellent flavor with a hint of spruce and surprisingly smooth finish for a double IPA.

Pours a clear gold into a shaker from tap. Thin off white head remains with light lacing as one drinks. Aroma is sweet citrus with slight graininess. Tiny bubbles with medium carbonation. Body is surprisingly medium at first but increasing throughout swallow with a drying quality. Citrus hops and malt and alcohol very well balanced. Resinous hop (simcoe?) Helps tie it all together. Must try!

Pour is bright golden and a little cloudy, Aroma hops hops and more hops with hints of an underlying citrus, taste is sweet on the front, floral, hoppy and the finish is pleasantly bitter. Great beer solid IPA.

MunBro (534) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Aroma of citrus fruits and hops. Nice golden pour with medium carbonation and a big foamy head. No real lacing. Super citrusy flavour with notes of mangos, grapefruits, etc. Very nice IPA and I am shocked that it’s 9.4%, it’s super smooth.

12.26.14 Huge grapefruit nose, juicy, a bit savory. Creamy mouthfeel, full and fresh. Lemon, fresh mowed grass, and white grapefruit. The finish is dry and herbaceous. A great beer, per usual.

12.26.14; picked up a bottle from Lowe’s Foods in Cary. Golden color with lacy white head. Very hoppy aroma, with a BIG grapefruit flavor accompanied by a great floral hop note. One of the best IPAs I’ve had in awhile.

for fucks sake. i need to rate more shit i drink often. sitting at home chowing on some king salmon with a nice spiced green bean side sipping on this sucker. think, wonder what i rated this one back in the day. well, i didn’t. so to the paperwork: looks good, drinks good. one of the rare big ipa’s that i keep coming back to. alcohol warmth, deep hop flavors that make me think citrus, then fruit, then pine, then the malt gives me a hug and let’s me know everything while not going to be alright, is going to be survivable, and isn’t that the point of life? survive until you don’t and that point you don’t have to worry anymore. good times. now back to surviving.

Clownoisseur (267) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - DEC 7, 2014
12.26.14 bottle Pours a bright golden yellow. Two finger white head. Aromas of pine, bready malt, light citrus...and a hint of booze. Taste is initially bitter pine to me...the citrus zest comes into play with a medium to heavy malt bill that sweetness the beer into a slightly boozy finish. As this warms the hop notes become more tropical...slight mango/peach notes develop where the initial bitterness was popping. Finishes with a medium-heavy bitter note but plenty of sweet malt to balance. Really nice DIPA.

Golden in color with a thick white head. Fresh citrus hops and malt aroma. Hoppy, citrus, sweetness and malt tastes. Similar to other Stone IPA but less bitterness. Great beer
