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.

09.13.13: Pours a hazy golden with a medium, fluffy white head and some lacing. Aroma is grassy hops and citrus fruit. Flavor is grapefruit and other citrus notes, grassy hops, pepper, and a burning hop finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Wonderful brew.

A damn good beer and a great concept. This was a 9/13/13 consumed on 9/8/13. Aroma was good. Strong hops, turpentine and paint thinner (all in a good way). Pour was a nice medium gold with a one finger of pillow for a head. Taste was very bitter and fresh. Strong citrus, grapefruit rind and hot alcohol mix with sticky sweet malt. The sweetness never has a chance because the bitterness and hotness wipes it out in the finish. Nice carbonation for the style.

1700th review! 22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 8/9/2013. Pours slightly hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of huge pineapple, mango, passion fruit, lemon zest, tangerine, orange rind, peach, floral, pine, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Incredible aromas with big complexity of tropical and citrus hops with a moderate malt balance; and great strength. Taste of big pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, tangerine, orange rind, passion fruit, pine, floral, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, tangerine, orange rind, passion fruit, pine, floral, and light caramel on the finish for a good bit. Incredible complexity of big citrus/tropical hop flavors with surprisingly light pine presence; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a lightly creamy and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an incredible DIPA as expected. All around awesome complexity of tropical/citrus hops; and dangerously smooth to sip on for the ABV. An extremely delicious offering.

Dr_MedievAle (214) - Alabama, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Enjoy by 9.13.13 Aroma: orange juice, grassy hops. Appearance: slightly cloudy, golden orange. Excellent lacing and carb bubbles. Off-white and foamy head with decent to subpar retention. Taste: Orange, grapefruit, with peppery notes in the middle that fade into a light alcohol and bitter finishes that cleans up nicely, leaving little aftertaste. Palate: Soft, oily. Lively carb with a bitter but short-lived finish.

9-13-13; light hoppy aroma; golden appearance with thin white head; big bitter hop taste; very fizzy on the palate with a bitter finish; overall a terrific double IPA that I would order any time I saw it available ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

acasteel (26) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Heavy IPA with a balance of the malt and hop flavor. Great dry hop tending towards blue cheese and pine more than citrus.

JulienHuxley (5640) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle enjoy by 09-13-13. Pours a dark hazy gold with moderate white head. Intense resinous aroma reminiscent of onions and pine along with some tropical fruits. Taste is bitter and resinous with a decent caramel malt backbone. Well made DIPA which could be more on the fruity side.

Alphadelic (2171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 5, 2013
9.13.13. Oh yeah. Stone are just great at this sort of stuff. Very tropical on the nose. In the mouth it is light and drinkable for its stature. A good, rolling bitterness that comes in waves without taking too much out on the palate. Very tasty even though I’m not in an IPA mood at this time.
