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.

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 (1145) - 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.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2014
10.31.14 bomber, poured a clear golden amber with a finger of white head. Aroma of pungent hop nose on this. Very heavy on the pine and citrus peel, light herbal notes, grass, and with a lovely floral quality. Flavour starts with some bitterness, but more tropical and citrus fruits like pineapple, papaya, apricot, mangos, some floral qualities as well. Was already smooth on the front end, but then gets even smoother and creamier in the middle from the malts that somewhat balance it. Then finishes dry with more tropical and citrus fruits, as well as some pine qualities. Very smooth and crisp finish that cleans the palate and makes you want to take another sip. Excellent beer!

MartinVanBeer (116) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Such an excellent fresh IPA. Golden color and a lasting one finger head. Citrus and fresh pine on the nose. Everything an IPA should taste like. Intense hop flavors and a hint of malt. Doesn't overpower, bet really deep. 10/31 enjoy by, Happy Halloween! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Enjoy by 10/25/13. What an intense experience. It’s been awhile since I had an IIPA that was this explosive in both aroma and flavor. A nose blasting, tooth melting experience. An onslaught of peach juice, passion fruit, canteloup, and sugar bag. But while the aroma is simply amazing, it’s nothing what the flavor the palate delivers. First sip gave me chills. Been awhile since I got chills. When it hit my palate, I could pick up flavors all over the place. Lots of pitted fruit, lots of tropical fruits, lots of pine, lots of citrus, lots of dank, lots of resin, lots of sweet base malts. Crystal clear in my class with a small, tight white 1/2" head. Small carbonation floating up in the dark gold body. Mouthfeel is full and quite sticky. Finish is incredily long. World-class IIPA."
