You have in your hands a devastatingly fresh double IPA. While freshness is a key component of many beers- especially big, citrusy, floral IPAs- weve taken it further, a lot further, in this IPA. You see, we specifically brewed it NOT to last. Weve not only gone to extensive lengths to ensure that youre getting this beer in your hands within an extraordinarily short window, we made sure that the Enjoy By date isnt randomly etched in tiny text somewhere on the bottle, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and beer fans. Instead, weve sent a clear message with the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle from QFC in North Bend. Pours an almost iridescent gold/orange with traces of white foam. Smells sweet, herbal, mildly tropical and citrusy. Tastes sweet, mildly medicinal, lots of bitterness (remaniscent of pinaple rind).

epiphyte707 (67) - eureka, California, USA - JUN 19, 2013
22 oz. from weaverville while camping. Aroma is of cat piss, pine resin, toffee malt, grassy, citrusy. Tastes like resinous fresh hop flowers with a clean stone malt backbone a spicy tingling on the palate that flows into a sublime hop aftertaste that is earthy grassy danky.

Wordsworth (147) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Bomber poured into Finnish pub mug. Pours a bright straw color with touches of amber. Thin white head that dissipates into a thin haze. Soapy white lacing slides down the glass. Aroma is grapefruit, a grassy smell, some melon, and a light sweetness that is alluring. The carbonation really bounces on the tongue with a clean mouthfeel. Taste is a wonderful balance of light piney sweetness, grapefruit and other lighter fruits, with a notable hop flavor that is not very bitter. The ABV is well hidden. A well balanced and accessible IPA that is very drinkable. Too bad I cant cellar it!

Caskalefan (168) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2013 What can I say? Perfect Pilsner-like color* For those who would argue that it should be more appropriately copper colored... *The first officially designated American craft brewed IPA was Grants, and it contained Pilsener malts of this golden hue. The nose is an exquisite melange of grapefruit, Mandarin orange, tangerine, pineapple, mango, peach, melon, kiwi, and lemon/lime. The flavors follow suit, and the body is medium to full with just the right amount of malt backbone which is more of a textural thing, in this case, than a flavor enhancer. The hops are given free reign to truly shine here. The balance is nearly flawless, right through the long, dry finish which is crisp, and remarkably refreshing. Wow!

rumproasts (5318) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2013
bottle. Deep golden with one finger head. I cant say Ive ever had a beer that smells as nice as this. Light bodied IPA with awesome hops. Crisp and really outstanding flavor.

Pith (160) - New York, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Enjoy by 5.17.13 Pours high carbonation bubbly pale straw with 1 finger bubbly white head. Aroma- clementine and floral hops. Some light grass- gentle with dirt hops. Taste- watery beginning with dirt all throughout. Middle slight sweet citrus. End dirty grassy hops with light sweet citrus

Dapierce17 (110) - Pasco, Washington, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Pours slightly hazy copper orange with lasting delicate head. Piney grapefruit aromas with hint of fresh cut grass. Is hole bitterness is present, it's pleasantly balanced. A very solid IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Big, bold citrus aroma. Medium body that coats your palate. Bitterness is overshadowed by the awesome fresh cut grass aroma. Finish is smooth with the alcohol becoming present as it warms. Thought it was kind of gimmicky at first, but this stuff rocks.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2013
Big fresh citrus notes ooze out of this from all over the place with a piney edge. Like most Stone beers theres no malt presence to speak of. The same can be said of the palate. Good fresh bitter finish. Solid stuff.

Dont believe all of the high scores. This beer is the dregs. I love imperial IPAs with one reservation, they must finish well without bitterness, and must not have any hints of grapefruit. This one doesnt do well on either front. I will not be purchasing again. If you want a good Stone IPA go with Ruination, or even better Ruin Ten. Even better go with Hophenge by Deschutes. This beer is definitely not to my taste.
