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.

Pours slightly hazy copper orange with lasting delicate head. Piney grapefruit aromas with hint of fresh cut grass. Is hole bitterness is present, it's pleasantly balanced. A very solid IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big, bold citrus aroma. Medium body that coats your palate. Bitterness is overshadowed by the awesome fresh cut grass aroma. Finish is smooth with the alcohol becoming present as it warms. Thought it was kind of gimmicky at first, but this stuff rocks.

Big fresh citrus notes ooze out of this from all over the place with a piney edge. Like most Stone beers there’s no malt presence to speak of. The same can be said of the palate. Good fresh bitter finish. Solid stuff.

Don’t believe all of the high scores. This beer is the dregs. I love imperial IPA’s with one reservation, they must finish well without bitterness, and must not have any hints of grapefruit. This one doesn’t do well on either front. I will not be purchasing again. If you want a good Stone IPA go with Ruination, or even better Ruin Ten. Even better go with Hophenge by Deschutes. This beer is definitely not to my taste.

arondee (528) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2013
I’ve tried a lot of IPAs at this point in my life. It’s very rare when one comes along that blows me away. I heard some good things about this beer so when I saw some at a beer store I grabbed a couple bottles. One word, amazing. Everything I ever wanted in an IPA. So hoppy, so well balanced. The high abv is impossible to notice. It’s light and refreshing and very resinous. One of the top 5 IPAs I’ve ever tried.

ansermadide (1450) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Bright... very bright and clear with a golden yeallow color and a bright white head. It’s very bubbly. Carbonation is healthy, but modest. In the nose, this is a very hoppy beer (I’m thinking pine and hard candy). It’s even a little minty, with more pine and a sincere friuty sweetness. The hops are really alive in the mouth. It has a touch of resin, but it’s subtle, and the experience is mostly of a standard, thin, well-hopped double IPA with a gorgeous hop presence that’s strong mostly in the flavor and not as much in bitterness. This is a very satisfying IPA if you need something easy and thin, high in alcohol but not alcoholic in flavor, sweet in flavor but not sugary, and satisfying to hop heads. It’s piney, resinous, packed full of flavors from the best of all worlds... not only perfect, but practically astonishing. It’s beers liek this that give Stone the love that I, and many others, have for the brewer.

krumbum (402) - truckee, California, USA - JUN 14, 2013
On Tap The newest of the series 7-4-13. Clear Glowing copper. A smell like grass stains cause by sliding through a hop field. The taste starts with a light floral taste easing in to a bitterness that heads to rubber but pulls back to an amazing floral finish. It realy examines the flavor depth an 2x ipa can carry. Get some while you can.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2013 Crystal clear copper straw pour. Decent off white head with plenty of lacing. Big time grapefruit, citrus, tropical fruit, floral hop aroma. As if every possible hop was added. Little to no malt noticeable. Medium to heavy body. All hops in the flavor. Similar hop character. Everything from grapefruit, to orange, lemon, dank, pine, and flower. Cool ipa tho. Just a showcase of west coast hops. ---Rated via iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 Enjoy by 12.13.13 Super floral hoppy aroma. A bit fruity too. Pale golden in color with a thin white head. Creamy yet pine filled start with a fresh hop after zing. Amazing.

Tap, 7.4.13 version - fair size thick head, clear light copper color, nice grapefruit and earthy hop aroma and flavor, mild malt backbone, very good IPA from Stone as expected ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
