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.

libertine (287) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - JUN 23, 2015
pours a very light orange amber with a white head that does not hold. Aroma is heavy on the side of tropical fruits and malt and does not have that resinous punch that you would expect from an Imperial IPA. Flavor is also sweet with heavy notes of tropical fruits and once again, the hops are taken over by sweetness of the malt. Medium body, slick/sticky mouthfeel and boozy in the finish. I cannot compare this to the previous enjoy by releases since this is my first. I can say, I am not impressed.

HomerBeerOdysy (77) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2015
APPEARANCE - 2FH that dissipates, foamy, lacing, amber, hazy. AROMA/SCENT - Hops, fruit, citrus. TASTE - Hops, bitter, pine. MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - A little carbonation, dry, lingering, astringent, effervescent, crisp. VALUE - $8.00 for 1-oz draft. OK. OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - Another winner from Stone.

mrhopsbeertalk (226) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 21, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2015 A new rating for a new beer. Twelve batches+ sampled later I can no longer detect even a hint of the complexity or the aroma and flavor of the early releases. This beer is a loss and travesty, ruined... not to be confused with ruination that now burries this sad ghost. Retire this or continue to embarass yourselves...

07.04.15 Interesting aroma, what hop smells like cool whip? (In a good way) Perfect lacing from 1/2in foam. Nicely balanced hop/maltiness.

rdixon77 (1591) - Georgia, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Latest iteration….7.20.15 I think. Freshness of this beer definitely comes through. Big citrus, some pine, big sweetness, a little bit of booziness, but not much of a detractor.

On tap at Draught 55. Enjoy by 7-14-15 variety. Crystal clear golden body with very thin film of white foam. Fragrant aroma of pine and citrus. Fresh fruit flavors; tangerine, peach, grapefruit, and orange peel. Bitter dry finish. Beautiful aroma - can’t go wrong with this IPA.

On tap at Lucky Baldwin?s. Batch 7-4-15. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma of marmalade, grapefruit. Taste is dry, grapefruit, with a warming booze kick in the end. Damn, these fresh hops do make a difference!
