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.

Bottle at Del Friscos, Charlotte and numerous other bottles. Yeah this is a really good beer. Smells like a hop, grapefruit, citrus, pine, etc. Taste is mind numbing. So easy to drink, absolutely no alcohol burn, dangerously easy to drink. Proof that aging beer is complete bullshit. I am sure someone will age a bottle and bring it out in 2023 for a tasting showing that they have the oldest (and in turn shittiest) beer in the house! Yay for no aging beers. Thanks Stone.

DSG (8627) - Tel Aviv, - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Enjoy By 10-25-13. Clear golden with a white head. Great weedy hoppy aroma full of fresh tropical fruits and citrus. Flavor of fruity, weedy and piney hops, with some malt sweetness and a very bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Very good and highly-drinkable for 9.4%.

chalicemaster (111) - Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2013
A surprisingly citrus-dominated IPA. I suppose that’s why it’s so fresh, but this is an intriguing beer. Quite bitter, very fruity with a sharp citrus finish, this beer is well worth checking out when available.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2014 Re-rate. Enjoy By 07.04.14. 22 oz bottle. The only things I’m changing are flavor and palate. The flavor is beautifully hoppy. There is a nice light malt profile to it, and the citrus is just beautiful. The mouth feel is really solid and the carbonation is right on. The lingering bitter hoppy citrus aftertaste is just great. Original rating: Enjoy by 11.12.13. On draft at Red Rock. The pour is a beautiful orangey gold with a decent lace. The aroma is incredibly hoppy, and equally citrusy. The flavor smacks you in the face with the hops, then the grapefruit and citruses take over into a very smooth and dry finish. This is a great IPA

bnoel09 (488) - Elk Grove, California, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Enjoy by 10.25.13 bomber, poured into Stone shaker glass. Golden straw color with thin white head. Aroma is all hops with a lot of citrus and floral notes as well as some resinous hop notes. Flavor is similar with a lot of hop character from sweet citrusy notes to sticky resinous flavors as well as some pine and spicy notes as well. Medium bodied with slightly sticky mouthfeel and less astringency than I expected. Drinks pretty easy for the ABV. One of the best IPA’s/IIPA’s I’ve had in quite a while.

What a great IPA. The idea works in execution. Super floral citrus pine aroma leads to aggressive but well balanced IPA. Very clean despite its youth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

First impression: Wow! Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear gold with white head. Huge aroma of citrus floral and pine. Excellent nose. Taste is similar to the nose with robust citrus and floral bitterness mixed with a mild caramel sweetness. It's all about the bitterness here though. Medium bodied with some nice stickiness to the palate. One of the best IPAs I've had. Well done guys! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
