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.

egajdzis (5622) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2013
[Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting] Amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, grapefruit, grass, and lots of citrus fruits. Taste of citrus, pine, grapefruit, light sweetness, and bitter hop finish. Bittering seemed a bit too high, just like a really fresh Ruination.

Habanero (3312) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2015
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy deep golden with an average off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, grapefruit, orange zest and pine. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and bitter. Medium bodied oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice DIPA indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Stone is the bomb. Clear orange copper color. Fizzy ok bring out hoppy character. Really hoppy bitter with extra clean finish. Can’t go wrong with stone.

lusikka (7492) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Draught @ Pizza Port Ocean Beach, San Diego, CA. Pours a hazy copper golden colour with a firm white head. Aroma of fresh resiny hops, grapefruit and caramel. Flavour of heavy resiny bitterness, grassy hops, caramel sweerness, grapefruit and herbs. Full bodied. Really heavy and enjoyable. Alcohol is rather well hidden. Great.

laiti (7641) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Draught @ Pizza Port, Ocean Beach. Aroma has tropical fruits, pineapples and mango. Also passionfruit. Flavour has resin, gluey notes, tropical fruits and menthol. Aroma was nice but flavour is a bit too gluey. Drinkability suffers.

BlazerT (281) - POLAND - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle. Sensoric. Cooper, cler with big, white, medium head. Nice lacing, average head retention. Nice clear malty profile, mostly high aroma of tropical fruits (lychee, passion fruits), also some citrus and resinous aroma. Taste is medium bitter, creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is bitter and semi-dry. In overall not thebest IIPA I’ve try, this one isprety balanced, but hoppy aroma is not so intense.

flying_pig (1163) - SCOTLAND - JUL 21, 2015
650ml bottle from BottleDog, London (£15):
A truly outstanding beer from Stone right here, I was expecting a lot from this one going in (particularly given how much the bottle cost) but it definitely delivered and then some. There was tonne of hops and bitterness to kick things off with some touches of alcohol appearing too but it still managed to remain drinkable and well balanced with a really refreshing and highly drinkable palate; this one was well worth ever penny I paid for it.

szeli (78) - GERMANY - JUL 13, 2015
Enjoy by 3.14.15 Enjoyed by 3.24.15 Vollkommen überhopft. Getrunken beim GBT15. Von allen in der Gruppe als überhopft deklariert worden, sogar die Assoziation "Müllsack" fiel in den Raum. Zu viele verschiedene Aromen in der Nase, sodass keine Differenzierung vorgenommen werden kann. Auch im Geschmack ist es nichts als hopfig. Das Malz ist zwar vorhanden allerdings harmonieren Hopfen und Malz nicht. Leider enttäuschend.
