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.

rejtable (1313) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2014 Update 4/7/2014 my birthday! Finding less in this one. Less nose, less flavour, less bitterness in finish. This is a lesser version for me. Update 4/20/14 batch. Still spectacular. Pretty much same profile as below. 4/20/13 batch. Pours slightly hazy light orange with limited head but huge lacing. Nose is bursting with fresh pine. Aromas showing pine, floral hops, some grapefruit, maybe some sweeter fruit like pineapple. Tastes are nice bitter up front, some light sweet through the middle and a good lasting bitterness to the finish. Mouth is medium bodied, a bit sticky with a long dry finish. Great stuff!!

This was a really great IPA. I have not had another that was comparable or close too. The first that I had was 02.15.13. I will definitely buy again when it comes out in my area. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

popery (1422) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 13, 2013
04.01.13 on 3/5/13, which is four days after it came into local stores. Pours a nice bright medium honey tone. Looks pretty clear, maybe a touch of haze. Medium white head. Fine bubbles. Some lacing. Aroma is full of bright hoppiness. It’s a mix of floral, sweet citrus and tropical fruit notes. Some things that come to mind: sweet grapefruit, tangerine, honeysuckle, peach, pineapple, papaya, kiwi, lavender. Very nice. Little to no malt contribution. Maybe just a bit of simple sweetness. The taste is chock full of hop flavor, and the bitterness is tuned just right for my palate. There’s no bland bitterness to this beer. It’s always complex and delicate hop flavor. Absolutely wonderful taste. Mouthfeel is light. Gentle carbonation. Long-lasting hop finish. No booziness. This is an excellent DIPA. I tried the first version and was less impressed, but perhaps, I didn’t have a big enough pour or something. This beer is tasty. If you like hops, I can’t recommend it highly enough. Kudos to Stone.

mmmbeer (1246) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2013
Half pint glass at DH- served a 10% turbid copper color, 2mm white head that tried to last throughout the tasting, heavy carbonation- especially for this joint! Aroma of hops by the tractor trailer and weed. Yeah, weed, endo, chronic, whatever. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt has a shitload of caramel, hops CRASH in on the middle, finish is heavily acidic. Not sure of the by date, but this was DAY-UM good! ’Bout time Stone went back to make beer instead of fucking around with beta bullshit.

Okay one of the best dipa I've laid my hands on. Very nice brew aroma is extraordinary. Lots in the mouth but nothing harsh. This definitely at top of my list for doubles. Nice full mouth feel. Hard to beat this. Head is thin. But nice lacing wow ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great hop flavor and goes down smooth. One of my all-time favorite beers. The 4/20 release is devastatingly dank! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (6915) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2013
Bottle @Bruces (thanks Bruce!). It pours clear golden orange with a small white head. The nose is juicy orange, mango, tangerine, light spice and some floral notes. The taste is smooth, bitter pine, resin, floral, peppery, grassy, dank hops, pithy orange, grapefruit and light marmalade with a bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and flavoursome.

Gription79 (2264) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 7, 2013
Had on draft at Aces and Ales in Las Vegas. Huge hop character, citrusy, pine, resin, grassy finish. Bready malt, hint of caramel malts. A great IIPA, super fruity and easy drinking.
