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- 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.

wildbeercat (356) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2013
Enjoy by 05.17.13. Bottled on 04/12/13. 22 fl oz / 650mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cool. Aroma: Hop storm! Lemon, citrus, and lots of nice hops. Love the way this smells. Appearance: Transparent dark yellow, head doesnt linger too long. Nothing too crazy going on here... Taste: Exceptionally hoppy. Some nice malt to back it up too. Theres something else that I cant quite pinpoint...Its not fruit, its not malt or hops, but its maybe a grain? Delicious stuff though. Palate: Flavors linger. Full bodied. Lots of presence. Overall: Delicious fresh beer. I had one of the Enjoy By 02.15.13s, but no more came to southern Arizona until this batch (EB 05.17.13)! STONE PLEASE KEEP SENDING BATCHES TO SOUTHERN AZ AND I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER AND EVER.

greenh0rn (16) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2013
Pours a golden orange with minimal head. Hops are apparent when cold, dissipate a bit as it warms. True west coast IPA, with strong citrus notes, especially grapefruit. Love the way it bites the tongue. One of the best DIPAs out there, lucky enough to have enjoyed 2.15.13 and now 5.17.13. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

iheartmnbeer (7) - Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2013 does not count
22 oz. Bottled on 4/12/13. Usual IPA color with a orangish yellow hue. Hints of citrus and grapefruit. Aroma is hoppy along with taste. Being a 2xIPA it leaves you feelin pretty warm toward the end of the bottle. Its very good, and deserves a solid 4ish rating. Looking forward to grabbing another in the series when it comes this way.

These finally showed up in MN with the 5-17-2013 bottle. Awesome aromas and very drinkable with the bitterness. Pretty close to the best in this category, but just a notch below.

At Butcher and the Boar at a Founders tap takeover but I thought Id switch it up. I preface with the fact i am not a huge IPA fan but this beer is good. Floral and citrusy aroma with a similar taste and you def get the bitterness and pine on the back end but not too bad. Well balanced!

maxcoinage (26) - Wauconda, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2013
Poured from 22oz bottle - bottled 4/12/13 - into a snifter a nice light golden color, which was somewhat translucent. Aroma was overpowering citrus- grapefruit especially, with some floral coming through as well. Mouthefeel is a standard body and carbonation for a typical ale. Taste is amazing - hops up front then a bit of sweetness, similar to aroma a big grapefruit element. The finish seems to be clean but then a nice bitter bite closes it out. Overall this is a fantastic DIPA, prob in my top 5. I need to get my hands on another bottle this week if I can.

SSSteve (4006) - - APR 21, 2013
5-17-13 bottle. clear pale gold with a small head. orange and pineapple hop notes with a hint of cantaloupe in aroma. intensely bitter hop juice flavor. light body with some abv heat in the finish. i like a little more malt presence than this one has, but yes, they accomplished the task of getting an incredibly fresh 2ipa in the hands of a thirsty dude in GA.

Isnt rating ANY Stone IPA as excellent a little redundant? Of course this thing is awesome: fresh, hoppy, resinous, and citrus-forward. Enjoy your "Enjoy By" today!

LagerLoather (13) - Chicago - Downtown, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2013
5-17-13 version. Citra hops pronant on the nose - love that fresh cat pee. Lots of fruit mango. Nice finish. One of my favorite Stone beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amazing aroma. Pine and citrus. Pours a pale amber orange with a decent cream head. Very hoppy and tons of citrus. Intense and varied palate.
