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.

A bottle of the 4.20.14. This is dank like the bottle says. Pours a nice amber color with a beautiful white head. Great hop aromas citrus and floral scents. Nice earthy hop flavor and little malt character. Would of liked a little more malt flavor. Don't notice the 9.4% ABV until the bottle is gone.

fiercepanda (446) - Missouri, USA - MAR 21, 2014
A clear orange beer with a medium white head. The aroma is big tropical fruits and resiny hops. The flavor is very piney and resinous as well as fruity.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Enjoy By 4-20-14, keg at Five Horses. Amber with lovely white head and lacing. Super juicy tropical fruit, papaya and pineapple to the fore of the nose. So dank, there’s almost a sweaty sock character to it. Taste is quite sweet with very fruity hop bitterness. Smooth and full with a lasting papaya aftertaste. Excellent Double IPA.

GreggK25 (26) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2014
4-20-14. Bottle, one week old. Pours a pretty hazy orange with a nice dense foam that leaves a thick lace. The nose is bright and citrusy with a huge load of grapefruit and a fair amount of pineapple, lemongrass, clover, mango, pine and toast. Taste is all Stone. Big, bright, juicy and really, really fresh with massive amounts of grapefruit, tons of fresh oily hop, lime, orange, grass, piney resin, pineapple, papaya, dry cracker, a touch of alcohol and a not so subtle hint of skunky closet funk. On the lighter side of medium body with a tangy slickness that finishes with zesty grapefruit and resiny hop oiliness. Pretty great DIPA.

Experiment_Ale (650) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2014
out of a bottle on 3/21/14. pours clear light bronze with some head that goes away. Aroma is pungent earthy hops with em floral notes, some sweetness, and un-ripened melon. Taste is huge earthy hop burst without the harsh bitterness, mouthfeel is sticky and gummy. finish is long and flavorful throughout.

Strong, fullboddied double IPA. A taste that definitely sticks with you and stands out. I always love stone and am excited anytime I can get my hands on this.
