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.

yngwie (13198) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2013
On tap at Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens. As Enjoy By 09.13.13. A clear, dark golden beer with a small off-white head. Lots of peaches and pine cones on the nose, hop pellets. Some generic tropical fruits and malty sweetness. The flavor has the same hop pellet touch, with a faint sweetness, lots of bitterness and some piney, citrusy notes. Dry on the palate, full bodied and pleasantly carbonated. Lasting finish. Wonderfully tasteful, although a bit too much on the hop pellet side. 130817
