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.

Batch 8-2-13...on tap at Lowry Beer Garden. Pours golden with small head. Aroma of pine hops. Moderate carbonation and big mouthfeel. Flavors of piney hops, sweet malt. Flavors of candy cane, grapefruit, citrus. Overall very tasty, bright, like an Altoids mint with a touch of alcohol and pine sap.

I don't know if it's marketing or if it's legit, but this just tastes super fresh. Clean hops hit strong, but after 3 drinks it's surprisingly mellow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mon oeil regarde cette robe qui a la couleur d’un lingot d’or.  Le col mousseux qui est timide qui se transforme rapidement en anneau.  Une dentelle tente de s’accrocher.  Un nez fabuleusement Stone.  De l’épinette, de la pruche et d’autres conifères.  Du jus de pamplemousse, des fruits néo-zélandais et des échalotes françaises.  Un bouquet longuement floral et une base maltée que je préfère oublier.  Sur mes papilles, une attaque fraîche et bien orchestrée.  Des houblons juteux.  Un concentré d’arbres et d’arbustes à inflorescence en cônes.  Un ensemble complexe de canaux résinifères.  Des plantes potagères, du miel de litchi, des fruits exotiques et un soupçon d’épices orientales.  Un alcool complètement dissimulé, dangereux et salopard.  Au palais, un corps superbement structuré.  Une texture huileuse.  Des bulles très fines qui agissent rapidement.  Une finale très intense, végétale, florale, résineuse, fruitée et poivrée. Wow !  Une véritable leçon houblonnée.  Certainement et indéniablement, pour moi, dans les hautes sphères du style.

Best DIPA tasted to date. I really enjoyed this beer’s fresh hoppy flavors. I wish I could get this one more often. Great finish without the resin bite

Possibly my favorite beer by Stone. It’s great they are making this so often now, and at 6.99-7.99 it is a steal. Huge hop character in the nose, along with a dank, almost manurey side to it that I find delightfully earthy and funky. Mouthfeel is dry, with some sweetness, huge pine, crispness, moderate malt. One of the best IPAs money can buy

beeratarian (134) - cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2013
12.13.13 22oz. Bottle for $6.99. Pours a light golden with small white head and a little haze. Aromas of pine and dank hops. Taste is crisp with a little sweetness, hops are mostly resinous and piney. Nice crisp finish with almost no malt and the hops stick to your throat. Very drinkable for being a double.

markducommun (284) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Molasses, pine resin, grapefruit. Clear goldenrod, with a small tan/white head. Quite bitter upfront, more pine than citrus. Small amount if sweetness. Oily, fair amount of alcohol present. Well balanced interesting ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Claves77 (161) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 11-12-13. Ridiculous good hop nose. Strong golden color, little less carb than desired. Strong hop flavor in front and then again on back end. Superb. Make sure you drink this fresh. After the date, it drops about 1 pt per category.

A true jewel of a Double IPA I found at a local market. Very fresh, clear and hoppy flavor. A slightly bitter finish - tastes very good. This is the kind of beer that makes California a great place to be a hophead. - Snowboards and IPA
