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.

Bouteille de 22 oz, enjoy by 07-04-13. Arômes intenses de houblons américains, beaucoup de résine et de fruits tropicaux. Quelques notes de litière à chat (du Simcoe?). Robe blonde et limpide, effervescence moyenne et belle petite mousse. En bouche, des céréales croustillantes et un corps sec supportent un bel houblonnage aromatique, à la fois fruité et résineux. L’alcool est magnifiquement bien dissimulé, si bien que l’on a l’impression de boire une IPA à 6%. Finale moyennement amère et plutôt sèche. Très bon !

Have had this on tap and from a 22oz bottle either way you cut it damb this is tasty. Pours out a gold topped with a long lasting soap head. Aroma is tropical fruits, floral notes, and some caramel sweetness. Taste much as the aroma lots of tropical fruit, some sweetness, and a nice mellow end. Not a big bitter punch you in the mouth like Stone is known for. Very good.

Have sampled the 12/21/12 and 7/4/13. Very clean and to the point DIPA on your hands here. Honestly can’t remember the difference between the two, if it’s hop profiles or what, but these are excellent! Big and bold in the bitter, nice and fruity sweet in the malty, blended well, Stone doin’ their thang!

This is the Woodstock Festival for hops: Galina, Simcoe, Delta, Amarillo, Moerilla, Citra and Cascade. The 9.4 ABV goes underground in this finely balanced malt and hops fresh offering. It’s like fresh squeezed grapefruit juice over a pile of pine needles. West Coast double IPA on steroids!

On tap at Friendly Spot in San Antonio. Serve by 7/4. This is a great beer. Aroma is floral, wonderful hop aroma. Taste is floral and hoppy. This was worth the wait! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good choice of spices. Tastes of fruit zest. Good hops. Lower IBU'S for my taste but very good balance of flavors. Great beer to give your friend that you want to love IPA's. ---Crozier

I went old school on this bomber and sucked it right out of the bottle... It was fresh, delicious and refreshing. Nice one served up cold on a warm afternoon.

Pour is hazy copper orange with a white head. Piney and grapefruit aroma. Very bitter, but still balanced. A good IPA.

Nikiel (878) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle from QFC in North Bend. Pours an almost iridescent gold/orange with traces of white foam. Smells sweet, herbal, mildly tropical and citrusy. Tastes sweet, mildly medicinal, lots of bitterness (remaniscent of pinaple rind).
