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.

I'm enjoying the "07.04.14" Plenty of hops -both on the nose and the palate. Plenty of booziness too, at 9.4% �� ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Look: pours a golden color. Thick bright white head fading fast. Thick lacing on the side of the glass. Smell: extreme dank from over a foot away. Citrus fruits, bitter smell. Orange, lemons, pine. Flowers and juicy fruit bubblegum as it warms up. Very sweet smelling, bitterness has gone away. Taste: not as bitter as the smell leads one to believe. Citrus fruits, lemons and oranges. Slight pepper. Pine on the back end. Definite dank cat pee flavor. Feel: very light and crisp. Good carbonation. Leaves a thin film on your mouth. Overall: not as extreme as I would think for such a strong beer. Very good beer, would definitely try again. First drank: home 6/16/14

Rich copper color. Medium low head retention. Grapefruit taste shows strong up front. Piney. Bitterness dissipates wiggly. Enjoy by 7.4.14

Grapefruit, Resin, Citrus Pretty good batch of the enjoy by series, much prefer the 4.20.14 batch as it was more unique in flavor and taste. Still very drinkable and fantastic.

I love the marketing concept for this stuff and it is a damn fine IIPA as well. Really, the only downside to it for hopheads is the appearance which is clear orange w/ a short lived head. And what kind of a hophead is going to be unable to look past a minor shortcoming in appearance? The nose on this is really unique. It sounds strange to describe but the hop character has an almost minty edge to it along w/ pine and peaches which I think of as being fairly standard. This is a lightly sweet beer with soft bitterness which helps the aromatics really shine in this case. The carbonation is mild and the texture is full and cottony. It finishes w/ a lingering touch of honey sweetness and some gentle resinous bitterness. This is a great IIPA and I heartily recommend it to fans of the style.

Bottle and tap at The Beer Store. Stone is almost synonymous with IPA. This series is just awesome. Fresh hops bursting out of the glass, and balanced with a proper dry malt backbone. Beautiful IPA. Pours a bright orange color, with a bright white head. Aroma is citrus galore. Taste is again well balanced west coast hops in a glass. Excellent! This was Enjoy by: 7/04/14

C'est la deuxième fois que je goûte a cette bière et je trouve quelle manque un peu de nez. Le corps y est , bon goût de grains, d'amertume et une finale soutenue. Très bonne bière mais un peu surévalué à mon goût. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at C&B in Old Town Temecula. Snifter. Orange, some lacing. Aroma and flavor of citrus, grapefruit and pine. Sticky on the palate. Nice bitter finish. Strong ABV but not overbearing. Great west coast style DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
