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.

Rasmus40 (9856) - Beder, Aarhus, - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle courtesy of ken1. 05.17.13 version. Clear dark golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and rather hoppy - grapefruit and peach. Flavor is quite sweet and very bitter. Dry and very bitter finish. 180513

Thebullshornbar (65) - Florida, USA - APR 23, 2014
An absolutely well balanced Imperial ipa that is musty in the freshest way. The nose gives away the dank resin, piney, minty hops, and sugary cereal notes, that all find themselves present in the on tongue. Hints of lavender, grapefruit, and fresh cut flowers peak through on the palate to balance the deeper notes. Overall this is a well conceived beer that is hard not to drink before said date.

TomTron (356) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2014
Pours a clear golden, yellow with a soapy, white head. Lots of citrus in the nose. Definitely the most fresh tasting brew I’ve tried. After a few sips it’s almost like it’s leaving a sticky resin on my teeth. Stone isn’t afraid to make a hoppy beer and this one is no exception, definitely an experience. Get your hands on any one of the releases if you can, it’s worth it.

hershiser2 (1191) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2014
Enjoy By 4/20/14; $8.29 bomber from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours golden with a golden-white head. Smells of luscious pine, grapefruit, and melon. Yummy as hell: grapefruit peel, orange peel, pine, and soap.

agl108 (735) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2014
22 oz. bomber, enjoy by 5/16/14. Finally got my hands on this, only had to go to Charleston, SC to get it. Pungent floral nose. Poured a dark, hazy gold with minimal head. Splotches of lace present. Sweet malt with dank pine and tropical fruity flavor. Just a touch boozy. Medium bodied. Couldn’t stop noting the similarities of this one to Lagunitas Sucks.

Whatup14 (600) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2014
En fût au Parker Pie, Enjoy By 04-20-2014. Couleur dorée légèrement trouble, mousse beige éphémère laissant une légère dentelle. Arôme de mangue, malt mielleux, houblon résineux. Goût de mangue, litchi léger, amertume moyenne-élevée. Carbonatation moyenne, corps moyen-dense.

lightbias (3) - USA - APR 20, 2014 does not count
Enjoy By 4.20.14, bottled. A citrusy floral punch with a sweet full body, this hoppy brew packs a wallop to the senses. A gorgeous golden color with a nice soft white head. Amazing flavor, complicated and simple at the same time, citrus, resin?, grapefruit and sweeter? Something sweet...someone mentioned passionfruit. Perhaps. What I do know for sure? Amazing flavor, amazing experience, from the top of the bomber to the finish.

Bottle from Costco. How many people brew this damn style & how many brew it right? This is a double done right.

HIGHB4LL (280) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2014
Enjoy By 4.20.14 from Bevmo! L.A. Appearance: finger of tight white head with great lacing, straw yellow, clear. Aroma: resin, pine, lemon, dank hops!, light caramel. Palate: light body, great lasting bitterness, dry finish, average carbonation, sticky texture. Taste: great rushing sweetness flowing into crazy bitterness that has a somewhat caramely sweetness in it. Overall, wonderful wonderful beer, great balance, aromas exhibit ALL the hops, and just enjoyable.

PotjeBier (1442) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2014
Taster from tap @ 38 Degree Alehouse, on 17 April 2014. Enjoy by 05.16.14 batch, so very fresh. Clear golden blonde color. Dense, rocky white head. Aroma’s of resin and citrus. Ratronasal it’s citrus upfront, then resin, some malty sweetness and light skunky. Flavor is moderate bitter, with some fruity sourness and light sweetness. Rather strong alcohol feel. Medium bodied. Finishes somewhat herbal and only lightly bitter. Nice, but I expected a bit more.

RumRunner101 (678) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 20, 2014
04-20-14. Hazy amber orange pour. Huge citrus and bready malt backing in the aroma. Alcohol is really well integrated. Lots of flavour - pine, citrus, caramel malt. Bitter finish.
