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.

very fresh, citrusy, floral, big chewy body, this is some serious stuff. extremely tasty and fresh hops all over this thing. reminds me of green flash imperial IPA, which is a favorite. this is how you do a double IPA

This brew has a hoppy flavor that I’ve never tasted before. It takes some getting used to, but once u do it is very enjoyable. Nice balance.of sweet and bitter.

Panzuriel (1257) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Enjoy by 11-12-13 purchased at corner beverage in columbus ohio, polaris location. This beer pours a brilliant copper clear with a small head of tiny white bubbles. Nose is strong evergreen needles, grapefruit and just a hint of green grass. Taste is somewhat restrained green grass with hints of cedar. finishes a bit more broadly with evergreen and citrus on the finish, just a touch bitter. very fluid, not very heavy, but not thin mouthfeel. slightly fizzy. I know that this is going to sound contrite, but this does seem to be a fresh beer. the aspects of the hops seem to elicit newly mown grass or harvested grain. That is exactly what they are going for with this beer, but they have nailed it and it works beautifully.

All I can say is wow! Aroma, color, mouth feel and taste all are beyond what I was expecting. Stone has set a new bar for batch brews. This is one I will try to clone until I get it right.

11.12.13 Batch. Crystal clear golden yelliw color. Got this right off the delivery truck st Joe Canals West Deptford. The aroma is flowery, but not overly strong. The aroma should be strong for a good IPA. You can clearly taste the hops however.

deyholla (5958) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Enjoy by 11-12-13 bottle. Pours a clear amber orange with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of pine and resin with underlying grapefruit and caramel. Flavor starts with bitter pine and grass and has a growing resin note and a touch of onion with a hint of grain in the finish.
