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.

Dan269605 (209) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - SEP 2, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Golden to light amber color. Lighter appearance than I was expecting. A huge citrus bomb hit the nose. Extremely fresh smelling. It’s hard to find fresh West coast IPAs on the East coast. The taste shines like the aroma. There’s huge orange, tangerine, a little tropical and floral nuances. It’s extremely crisp on the palate and goes down almost too easy. The ABV is practically unnoticeable. This maybe the best offering I’ve had from Stone. Truly, an amazing beer and one of my tops.

burg326 (3240) - Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Poured a dark orange color from the bottle, aromas of fresh citrus, pine, grapefruit, and some light zest. Flavors follow suit, fresh citrus, light bitter grapefruit, and a touch of pine in the finish.

9.13.13. Pours amber with foamy head. Nose is grapefruit, citrus, floral hops, pine, resin. Taste is hopy, spicy, with grapefruit, citrus, pine and a little bitterness come later. Really smooth and enjoyable. Very complex and well made.

9.13.13 from bomber. Thanks, gururyan. Fresh, grassy nose. Pale, with some head and a touch of lacing. Deceptively strong with a nice grassy flavor. Loses points in the finish, which is a bit astringent. Overall, another terrific beer from Stone.

9.13.13 batch. Sugary pine scent. Tastes start with sweety caramel, crisp apple and pine. Then the bitterness hit s, citrus and floral hops. Excellent balance between sweet and bitter.

puboflyons (1873) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Enjoy By 09.13.13. The pour is a decent looking golden amber with a long-lasting, silky white head. The aroma is not in your face but the nose has some pleasant spruce and floral hops as well as a a more muted biscuit malt note. The body is medium and smooth. The taste has a slightly sweet start but then the hops roar in and assume the profile. The bitterness is low to moderate lingering slightly toward the finish. I liked it.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2013
On tap, enjoy by 9-19-13. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma of tons of pine, grapefruit, grassy hops, garlicky hops, citrus. Very powerful hops! Flavor of piney hops, crackery malt, grapefruit, citrus. Palate is a bit heavy, syrupy. Definitely a hop monster, but it’s a big one! 8/4/8/4/14 (3.8/5)

mansquito (3106) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Memphis Taproom, Philadelphia tap ($6): Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is an explosion of grapefruit and citrus flavour. The person who said that this is reminiscent of Heady Topper is pretty spot on. (Of course, this is more alcoholic than the famed Heady Topper though. The taste is just the right amount of bitterness, a touch of sugar, but mostly extremely flavorful hops. When a beer lives up to the hype, it is always a treat.

Reminiscent of Heady Topper. Honey, flowers, hops. Really pleasant aroma. And that is about how all I have to say about it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
