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.

AndresTM (372) - Texas, USA - APR 4, 2015
4.20.15 with 17 days to go. Fruity, malty, hoppy aroma of grapefruit, a hint of pineapple, citrus peel, barley, and a bit of resin. The mouthfeel is hefty, almost syrupy, with moderate carbonation and a medium-to-thick body. The taste is perfectly bitter, with some accompanying tropical sweetness and a lingering, but not astringent, hoppy finish. No trace of alcohol in the taste department. Great.

Enjoy By 4.20.15. Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is fantastic, sweet tropical fruits, slight pine, sexual. Appearance is perfect, golden with a white head. Taste is amazing, a hoppy bitterness that catches you off guard based on smell, paired with sweet tropical fruit. Mouthfeel is perfect, crisp but not too carbonated, a nice thickness that prevents it from being light. Overall, I’ve had a taste of it before, and it’s just as I remember, amazing.

grimreaperguru (251) - santee, California, USA - APR 3, 2015
4-20-15 batch. Pours a light somewhat cloudy orange color with a white head. The aroma is of pine with notes of citrus. The flavor is of syrup up front with a bitter hop bite at the end. The body is medium and goes down real smooth. Overall a good beer.

VertBaconStrips (2200) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
El Batcho 04-20-15. Reviewing from deep in the Ottoman Empire. Spectacular beer! Herbal, earthy, wet, resin, thick, bit of pepper bite, rrgf, caramel, peaches, pungent anything, tropical things, solid lemon taste, unicorn tears, honey, every damn sip is just simply awesome. I am officially drinking only this at home. Gonna be very hard to by other I/IIPA’s available here to review or whatever because it’s absolutely fucking pointless. Seriously - who the fuck keeps buying subpar beers when excellence awaits? To get that next Picaroons IPA review? (totally gonna do that btw because i have a permanent ipa hard on.... sigh). Lyric of the night: "gangbang at the old folks home : one foot in the grave : two lips on my bone". Beat that.

Another 10/10 Stone gem, lots of aroma, nice and slick (but not too thin), perfect for the summer OR winter (extra abv 9.5%!).

haddon90 (1562) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - APR 1, 2015
4.20.15 edition. Pours a clear, dark golden color with a nice, thick white head. Strong, hoppy aroma with strong citrus and grassy notes. Smooth, hoppy taste. Crisp. Easy drinking for a 9.4% brew. Light, grapefruit notes. Really good Double IPA.

jh773 (233) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2015
UPDATED: APR 1, 2015 4/20/15 edition. Color is a rich golden-yellow-orange with a medium-sized dense head. Smell is dense, dank, intensely fruity, syrupy sweet. Dense citrus and pine flavor, lots of bitterness, layers on layers of flavor. Another home run from Stone.
