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.

tillmac62 (181) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Enjoy by 4/20/14. Clear light amber, golden, pour with a very nice head and long retention lacing. Nose of sweet citrus (mango, orange) over a light grapefruit and earthy dankness background. Light medium bodied with a slick texture. Normally carbonated with no effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is a blend of hop flavors over a slight biscuit sweetness with a low level of bitterness. It begins with the sweet citrus flavors which are soon overpowered by the dank earthy hop components. While complex, the flavor is heavily "dankcentric" - lol. On the smooth finish, you get a bit of biscuit sweetness flowing into the dankcentric vortex coupled with a nice residual alcohol tingle at the back of the throat. An exceptional beer that those which wonder what dank means should try.

Nocturne (764) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle dated 16/8. Had a taster of this in the US and glad to see it again. Slightly hazy orange pour. Nose is the grapefruit I remember, peach, and a strange interloper: onion. Juicy, resinous taste with much bitterness. I think this is good but a little overhyped to be honest.

Marsiblursi (3001) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2014
(Bottle) Pours light hazy orange with an off-white head. The aroma holds pine, black currant jam, tart apricots red berries, gooseberries, light wood and citrus alongside bready malt and maybe something light caramel-ish. The flavour is light sweet to dry, medium to heavily bitter and light acidic. Citric, floral light fruity and fairly tight malt. The mouthfeel is clean and soft with a medium carbonation. Near medium bodied.

Bottle courtesy of GT2. Labeled Enjoy By 08.16.14. Pours hazy golden with a frothy offwhite head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is slightly fruity, slightly herbal and tiny earthy with crackers, grapefruit juice, freshly cut grass, pine needles, lemon balm, orange zest and lemon zest. Taste is slightly sweet, bitter, fruity and tiny herbal with crackers, grapefruit juice, freshly cut grass, pine needles, pineapple, mango, orange zest and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is round, oily bitter, tiny sticky sweet, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter, fruity and tiny herbal with biscuits, grapefruit juice, moist grass, pine needles, unripe mango, orange zest and lemon zest. Tasty but i suspect the only way to really enjoy this is crazy fresh on spot in San Diego.

I have had the pleasure of trying many of the releases and they are damn good. Huge hop presence, nice roasted character, dank, bitter, umami, soy. I know that sounds weird. I love this beer! Very good. You really should drink it before the date, even earlier. As soon as it hits the shelves it should be consumed. No I don’t work for Stone.

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.
