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.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2013 Um, what’s the hype all about? This is a pretty generic grapefruity IPA with the caramel malt background that I’d expect from an EC brewery attempting a WC IPA, not the hype beast from Stone I’d heard all about. Not pungent enough, not fruity or flavorful enough, to be anywhere near amazing. Not bad, mind you, but far from great. re-rate: Way better than initially thought on first taste. Nice mango note, light sweetness, not as bitter as my first try at the beer.

Bottle - Enjoy by 5-17-13. Pours amber with a small, white head. Aromas of citrus and pine hops with light caramel and a hint of spiciness. Great pine and citrus hop flavor with a caramel and somewhat bready backbone. Nice bitter citrus and pine finish with some added floral and spicy hop notes. Smooth, tasty and not even a hint of the alcohol. A great IPA.

Pours golden with yellow-white head. Aromas of citrus rind, big hops, with a sweet note-caramel maybe. Herbal hops on the palate along with citrus, and a salty caramel finish. Was excellent right out of the fridge but turns green as it warms ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rating #2600. Draft at World of Beer Dadeland. 5-17-13. Pours clear dark golden color with off white head. Aromas of grapefruit rind and caramel. Bitter grapefruit rind flavor with some oranges and sweet malts. Moderate bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation and dry finish. Very nice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_em

Batch 05/17/13. Pours clear orange with a slight white head. Aroma is light fresh citrus, pine cone, and a bit of caramel malt. Taste is ultra fresh hoppy goodness, fresh citrus fruit, light toffee, and no sign of the 9.4%. Really light, crisp, and easy drinking.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2014 By 12-26-14. on draft at Local Cantina. Nice warm resiny citrus and caramel malt aroma. Tastes are the vegetal and spice from my previous rate, but seems better rounded this time with resin, pine, citrus. May be just better on tap - bumped it up a couple points. By 05-17-13. Bottle from Proof. Tried it on tap last night also. Orange-gold pour with thin white head and slight spotty lacing. Aroma is huge vegetal, peppery, floral and citrus. Tastes are grapefruit, pineapple, bitter hops, resiny, floral, wet grass. Peppery through the long bitter finish. Covers the alcohol well. This is a sipper for me. Very nice, but can’t say I’d crave another.

Bottle poured into glass. Been waiting for this to hit FL for a while so I was pumped to finally purchase a bottle yesterday. It’s basically a delicious mix of hops and slight citrus. Stone does it right! Great beer!
