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.

FiremanChris (12) - - APR 16, 2014
Enjoy by 5/16/14 bottled on 4/10. Drank 4 days after bottling on 4/14 pours a clear honey color with a 1 finger head. Sticky lacing, good carbonation. Aroma is big hops, dankness, astringent, pine/resin. Tropical fruits: tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit. Sweet bready malt. Taste is a smack in the face of dank hoppiness followed by huge grapefruit/pineapple undertones with a balancing malt backbone. Pine sap, other tropical fruits.Dry finish leaving you wanting another sip. Outstanding. Overall one of my favorite DIPAs that never disappoints.

ACD (568) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 15, 2014
Bomber (4/20). Hazy gold, immaculate white head. Huge dank mango and hemp nose, grapefruit, orange peel. Great fruity taste: full of passionfruit and mango, peach and slightly darker notes of orange. More dank hemp, sticky pine, and sweeter biscuity malt. Fruity,sweet juicy notes lasting. Really crisp finish - great bitterness. So easy drinking, belies its ABV. Shit me, this is great.

04/20/2014 bottle, that’s right 420 bitches. Pours a clear amber, massive fluffy white head that dies down to about half a finger and leaves tons of lace. Nose is beautifully hopped, and some sweet caramel. Tastes perfectly balanced bitterness.

I can’t seem to get enough! Beautifully aromatic. It’s bold and sensationally hoppy. I can’t wait for stone’s next run.

Enjoy By 4.20.14. Bright orange body. Thick white fluffy head. Earthy hop aroma. Very bitter grapefruit taste. Actually a little sweet. This beer does have a good amount of malt taste. Very delicious. I’d totally buy it again if I’m in Chicago. Can’t get Stone in Madison.
