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.

Had the most recent version on tap. Lots of pine, citrus, and some scallion. The taste didn’t disappoint and was nice and piney with some citrus notes as well. The finish is right where you’d want it to be bitter, dry and flavorful. Only down side was the scallions...

08-02-13. Incredible hop aroma with pine predominating. Taste is bold with piney hop bitterness, resin, alcohol, and a touch of malt. Fantastic beer, even when it’s three weeks old.

The bottle told me to drink it right away so I poured the sonna bitch in my micky donalds cup and gulped her down on the drive home. I recommend drinking this one with a splash of warm diet coke.

Bomber. Enjoy by 8/2/13. Alcohol in the nose, approaching rubbing alcohol character even. Other than that, nutty. Hoppy, but actually not that bitter.

I can hardly find the words to describe this. Maybe the best dips I’ve had to date. Holy cow. Amazing fresh wet hop aroma. Dank, citrus aromas too. Tastes like wet spicy hops and grapefruit rind. Crazy smooth and drinkable for a beer this size. So so so good. Damn you Manitoba for not bringing in amazing beer like this.

resevil787 (123) - Arizona, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle. 8.02.13 type. Pours a light copper. Two fingers of head, off white and hangs around for a bit. Extreme notes of grass, as well as floral and hop notes as well. The grass / pine flavor dominated when it touches the tongue. Finishes sweet and hoppy with some mild citrus flavors. A very solid IPA.

Billed as a possible ’best beer in usa’ candidate, I found it to be a little more resinous and piney than I usually like but I still ’enjoyed by’

Caytinator (813) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2013
08.02.13 on tap at the brewery. Gold color, clear, rocky head, bubbly, good lacing. Fresh aroma, a little sweet and bitter at the same time. Taste is very bitter, with floral undertones. Complex even for an IIPA. Very well-done beer, it meets its goal of being extremely fresh.

jgb9348 (4493) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Enjoy by 07.04.13 Crystal clear light copper coloured body with a bit of gold noticeable and a thick, rich two centimtere tall off-white head. Aroma of fresh piney and grapefruity hops with tons of resin, alcohol and white grape notes. Full-bodied; Deep resinous, piney, bitter and assertive metallic note with a lighter malt backbone than expected, but way too much bitterness and alcohol notes. Aftertaste shows more pine sol cleanser than anything else and some decent flavours - but way too strong and not like a good IPA nor Imperial IPA at all. Overall, not so good and not really worth trying, even though - everyone will buy it, because it’s Stone and everyone will say they love it. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from City Liqour House in San Diego, California on 08-June-2013 for US$6.99 sampled at home in New Paltz, New York on 04-July-2013 - Happy Independence Day (last day of this beer being ’fresh’?).

GothGargoyle (945) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 1, 2013
Bottle of the 07.04.13. Clear golden with a small pale head. Aroma is passionfruit, spruce, honeydew melon, jasmine. Light mouthfeel, very well balanced with a fruity hop finish. Taste is passionfruit, clover honey, candied citrus peel.
