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.

Great aroma and look. However this beer lacks on taste and palate balance. Perhaps a malty component would enhance this otherwise above average dipA.

Great gold color and light head. Nice big fresh hop nose. Biting sharp bitter taste from beginning to end. Lingering hop end. Like a dry martini.

HighlanderOne (1046) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2015
On tap at Dog and Cask. 2/15/2015 edition. Medium hop aroma. Looks like an IPA should. Pine and floral hops dominate with a sweet malt back. Not over carbonated and alcohol is barely noticed. Another great one from Stone.

dliberto (216) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Enjoy by 12-26-14. I had this beer on the 25th. Poured from the bottle into a snifter. Pours a cloudy darker orange with a small white tan head. Aroma consists of orange, peach, apricot, and pine. Taste has all of these great smells with a nice malt backbone that amplifies the taste even more. Well balanced beer with a medium body and moderate carbonation and a sticky mouth feel. Awesome beer.

kjc51478 (439) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JAN 16, 2015
22 oz Bomber poured into a shaker pint. Appearance is dark Amber color with light, creamy off-white head. Aroma is complex with pine and citrus initially presenting followed by floral and more resin. Taste is bitter with only a slightest malt sweetness balancing. Palate is medium-bodied, dry mouthfeel that lingers long into the finish.

scotchzombie (391) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Pours hazy glistening gold with a moderate and frothy white head. Aroma is stupifyingly fresh - dank delicious hops and citrus. Super smooth on the palate with flavors slowly revealing themselves. Pine forest fresh, hop-strong, some grapefruit and tangerine citrus out the back and a mild caramel malt backbone. Citrus linger with some mild residual bitterness. Super fresh and hoppy but easy on the bitter. Dynamite.

Enjoy by 2.14.15 Bubbles are vacuous with a nice sheen. An almost lager like clarity, it looks great. 13 hop varieties here we go! Pine and bright citrus with a dense hoppy smell. Warming up, it goes to candy orange slices. Sticky taste, it leaves syrupy residual bits on the lips. Complex hops, oranges and grapefruits, floral and pine. I'll take another ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2015 Bottle at home. 22 oz. No matter how far I stray on my journey for new beers, I always end up back at the same brewery: Stone. This beer is fresh and delicious. It is crisp, refreshing and balanced. A great example of a fresh IPA. Enjoy by... Or else.
