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.

22 oz bottle. 09.13.13 edition. Pours a clear, bright honey color with a fingers worth of creamy eggshell colored head. Lazy loops of lace are left behind as you drink. Sharp citrus aroma, grapefruit & pineapple. Lots of juicy tropical fruit flavor balanced by grapefruit and pine. Bitter on the tongue with a bitter finish. This brew looks good, smells good & tastes good. Whats not to love. A big thanks to the guys @ The Beer Store for hooking me up.

9-13-13 bottle. The main thing that sticks out with this beer is the clean fresh taste. It does almost everthing well, but nothing is outstanding. The pineyness is my favorite aspect of this beer with nice bitterness but its actually subdued compared to some other stone beers, which is what I love about stone.

jtclockwork (8782) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle. 9-13-13. Pours yellow gold with white head. Nose and taste of perfumy hops, soft orange zest, caramel malt, citrus and light alcohol. Finishes with orange zest, alcohol and light sap/resin. Medium body.

illidurit (2168) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Pours gold with an eggshell head. Aroma is very similar to the Gotterdammerung IPA, with strange kefir and berry fruit notes along with the more typical sharp citrus. Flavor is the same, aspirating through the palate via some tangy alcohol. Finishes a bit like getting chlorine in your windpipe. That’s pretty extreme, I don’t mean it’s gonna make you cough for 3 minutes. But it isn’t exactly languid.

JBoan (176) - Arizona, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Pours hazy golden with thin head. Smells of big hops, citrus, grapefruit juice, sweet malts and pine needles. Tastes clean and fresh, bitter hops, fresh squeezed citrus juices, pine needles, and sweet floral malts. Another good IPA from Stone Brewing!

mathieuc (1458) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
Tap at Alewife, Queens. Pours a clear yellow with a thin white head with no retention but some lacing. Aroma is grapefruits, pine and that’s about it. Taste is bitter - a medium level I would say. Flavors of pine with a little caramel. Carbonation level was fine. No signs of the alcohol content. A really drinkable DIPA.

raphael (894) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Such pine aroma kept barley in check by caramel, & shadowed by thr musky fresh hop greenness. solid yellow with modest white head, a honeyish weight in the mouth, a little flat. flavors of oast, lumber, lemon, alcohol. quick warming, full flavored finish

A really refreshing ipa. Crisp and clean. The aroma palate was full of fresh hoppy goodness.

Pours a golden amber with a quickly dissipating, two finger head that settles into a spotty cap that lasts throughout. Decent lacing. Great floral aroma up front with nice sweet malt notes in the background. Hoppy bitterness hits the front of the tongue followed by a torrent of pine resin and grapefruit rind. Sweet malt backbone balances the hops nicely. Mouthfeel is where this ale shines; smooth and easy drinking for the ABV. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Overall, this is an outstanding example of an Imperial IPA, extremely well crafted and balanced. Kudos Stone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
