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.

Tasted on 5/8/13 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours clear bright orange with an average off-white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is awesome, with tons of floral and citrus hops, along with a nice dank hops note and just enough caramel malt to back everything up. The flavor is the same with the dank flavor in the hops showing strongest with the floral and citrus hops second and third, respectively. There is also a nice backbone of caramel malt nicely balancing everything out. The body is full with a sticky texture, average carbonation, and a long, very floral, dank, and nicely bitter finish. This is a top class IPA.

Enjoy By 08-16-14. Big thanks to BenH allowing me to pick up his spare. Shared on a park bench in the Meadows. Classy jakey action. Pours pale gold, thick white head. Big resin nose, something floral too. Taste is bitter, but well balanced. Was expecting a kick in the face from Stone, but this was remarkably drinkable. Medium body, texture is creamy edging towards thin. Bitter finish. Good.

Fad: Taster på Stone. 08-16-14. Let kattepis ellers citrus. Smagen er frisk med en pungent tropisk note kørende for sig. Lækker IIPA hvis man tager kattepissen for hvad den er.God bitterhed.

Beese (1540) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle at BrewDog, Shepherd’s Bush on 23 July. 08-16-14 variant. Poured a clear, bright, deep amber colour, with a dense white head and good lacing. Huge aroma of fresh hops, perfume, citrus, resin, dried fruit and spruce. Pine needles in the flavour, with some mango sweetness and grain. Rich complex hops in the finish, with some resin, marmalade, candy sugar and chewy grain. Excellent!

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Orange, nice white head. Smells stoney, hint of smoke, and lots of citrus. Hops dominate the taste, as you might expect. Some toasty notes, but mostly citrusy hops.

Evchenko (3) - Bristol, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2014 does not count
From Brewdog Bristol. Wouldn’t usually spend this kind of money on one bottle but it was every bit worth it. Lovely aroma, citrus and bitter quality to the hops, gorgeous body and a lovely warming alcohol glow. Surprisingly drinkable for a 9.4% offering. Well worth the spondoolies, best IPA I’ve had.

Pours a clear orange. Aroma is floral, piney, and grapefruit. Taste is sweet grapefruits upfront and a bitter piney finish.

Garrold (1149) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle from Brewdog, Sheffield. Fairly big hype round this, which is annoying. Just put it in the fridge, tell folks it’s in there, and they’ll buy it. No need for the, "Oooh, hurry up, the fridges are nearly empty" shite. Anyway, it’s dank and fusty and piny and orangey. Chewy and boozy, too. As Mr. Flav said, "Don’t don’t don’t don’t don’t dont dont believe the hype. Ooeeeurrgghhhaa".

By far one of the most incredible IPAs I’ve ever had the pleasure of trying. Great aroma and a fantastic taste that washes over your entire mouth and leaves you wanting more. Definitely fresh and definitely hoppy BUT not unpleasant or overly bitter on the finish.

Osprey87 (1406) - WALES - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle from Brewdog, enjoy by 08.16.14. Amber orange, slight haze, lightly sparkling, big foamy white head. Aroma - lemon and peach, light caramelly malt character. Body - medium, spritzy, slightly foamy. Taste - grassy, corn, grapefruit concentrate, tangy alcohol, fairly bitter finish. Another ’Emperor’s New Clothes’ beer from the USA. If this was made in the UK it would get a far lower rating.
