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.

Bawelt (485) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAR 31, 2016
Enjoy by 04/20/16. Embouteillée le 16/03 ! Nez ultra floral, un peu de mangue et pas mal d’ananas. L’alcool ne passe pas totalement inaperçu. Bouche très fine, vu l’alcool, on s’attendait à quelque chose de plus bourrin. En fait, on a une jolie IPA pleine de subtilités qui traduisent sa fraîcheur : notes de paille, d’herbe fraîchement coupée, d’agrumes, un peu de mangue. Longueur assez agrumes et herbacé, amertume modeste mais très désaltérante, sans être trop sèche.

Finally had a chance to try this. On tap at Bier Station, Kansas City. Light body some white head and lacing. Resinous and quite piney. Not as spectacular as I was hoping. Abv well masked. In fact not even my favourite IPA I tried today. Still not bad.

My first review... hop forward.... aroma. . Pine, dank, maybe a little cat spray...all the cliches, consistently delightful, sells out quickly in San Jose. This is the enjoy by 4/20/16...Never lets me down... can’t go wrong with this one..

Bottle. Resin, citrus, and pine aroma. Bitter citrus and resin taste. Possibly not too fresh, but still good.

Absolute flavor BOMB. I’m not a believer in drinking "fresh" IPAs like this. Takes one of my favorites, Stone IPA, and simply intensifies everything. So good.

morri (273) - NORWAY - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle. Medium frothy off-white head. Hazy pale orange body. High carbonation. Aroma is fresh yeast. Grassy hoppiness. Citrus. Very well balanced on the tongue. Creamy feeling in the mouth.

Hop_Hedonist (450) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2016
Enjoy by 10-31-15 so I’m pretty late - really good DIPA - light malt body which suits me - squarely in the floral hops dominant taste spectrum - super easy to smash down - another winner from Stone.

BrewBrain (141) - Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Enjoy by 2-14-16. Light yellow golden mildly hazy. Small off white head, decent lacing. Massive floral fruity hop aroma. Chuggable sweetness with intense hops but not overwhelmingly bitter. Home run.

blueshockey24 (397) - Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Bottle Enjoy By 2-14-16. Pours hazy golden. Aroma is piney dank spiciness. Taste is sweet, spicy and fruity with a alcohol warmth and piney grapefruit finish. Really good!

Cunningham (6721) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2016
Nice tasty evening sipper with a dangerously well hidden alcohol.
Clear deep golden color with a big frothy white head. Nice lacing. Looks good. Nice hoppy aroma with a fine intensity. Medium to full body and a fine smooth carbonation. Tad sweet and a fine bitterness. Citric hoppy, pine, toffee and a bit resinous flavor.
[Bottle (12.25.15) from a trade with RobertDale]
