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.

Enjoy by 04JUL13 Golden with a loose soapy white foam sheet. Smells nice: mango, pineapple, resin, biscuit, dextrose, bit of mint. Bitter, sweet, sugar sweetness, some onion, some body odor, some grapefruit. Medium bodied with moderately sharp carb and an off dry finish. This was better the first time I tried it, but I feel there are a couple characteristics here I’m growing tired of: onion and body odor in the IPAs - seems to be a palate trend for me lately unfortunately.

22 Oz Bomber. The beer pours to a medium golden color with a small white head. The aroma has a very floral, citrus, stone fruit scent to it. The taste has a light body with a well balanced malt / hop somewhat sweet upfront & a nice smooth finish.An excellent DIPA for me.

This beer has so much hops it could win the slam dunk contest. Very appealing citrus aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jerm719 (105) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Weak head. Big citrus, mild grapefruit, perfect balance! Mild pine, very mild malt. Almost no alcohol presence. One of best IPAs i ever tried! I’m very picky about IPAs ....

Bomber. 12.13.13. Citrus hops on the nose wafting from a beautiful clear golden body with a thin white head and bubbles. Citrus hop taste with smooth honey notes and medium bitterness. Very good and very easy to drink.

13 Nov 2013 tapped today at Green Onion, Utica NY. Fresh/earthy IIPA, dry, 9.4 alc. well-hidden. Astringency in the long finish. Not for the faint of heart.

hoju777 (144) - FRANCE - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle.Smells really good. Like a musty carpet that was really beer stained by skunky smelling dudes. Clear and copper. Tastes like heady topper, but with more flavor and the perfect sweetness. This is what Heady topper would taste like if it was actually a special beer. A perfect beer.

Beautiful pour from 22oz into pub glass. Golden Color nice lacing and decent head. Complex hops on the nose citrus and some onion dank like pleasant fresh smell. Heavy alcohol mouthfeel. No real carbonation. A sweaty strong too bitter unbalanced finish which is the only part of this I didn’t love. Really don’t understand the devotion to this series as its not Stone’s best. Stone Ruination IPA even thought higher in IBU finishes so much cleaner than this.
