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.

Batch 05/17/13. Pours clear orange with a slight white head. Aroma is light fresh citrus, pine cone, and a bit of caramel malt. Taste is ultra fresh hoppy goodness, fresh citrus fruit, light toffee, and no sign of the 9.4%. Really light, crisp, and easy drinking.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2014 By 12-26-14. on draft at Local Cantina. Nice warm resiny citrus and caramel malt aroma. Tastes are the vegetal and spice from my previous rate, but seems better rounded this time with resin, pine, citrus. May be just better on tap - bumped it up a couple points. By 05-17-13. Bottle from Proof. Tried it on tap last night also. Orange-gold pour with thin white head and slight spotty lacing. Aroma is huge vegetal, peppery, floral and citrus. Tastes are grapefruit, pineapple, bitter hops, resiny, floral, wet grass. Peppery through the long bitter finish. Covers the alcohol well. This is a sipper for me. Very nice, but can’t say I’d crave another.

Bottle poured into glass. Been waiting for this to hit FL for a while so I was pumped to finally purchase a bottle yesterday. It’s basically a delicious mix of hops and slight citrus. Stone does it right! Great beer!

The freshness is apparent in the wonderful pine and citrus aroma. It pours a crystal clear amber with a white head. The malt sweetness is up front with the hops coming in the back. Nicely dry and refreshing.

Near perfect ale, golden color. Hopps hit you nose right away followed by nice full body. As others mentioned, its a little hot at the end.

ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 26, 2013
Bomber brewed on 4/12/13. Enjoy by 5-17-13. Wonderfully fruity, hoppy aroma. Hazy gold with a creamy, frothy head and beautiful lace. Wonderfully hoppy flavor. A little hot so interesting that they market this as a beer that has an immediate shelf life. Near perfect beer. Glad I bought two.

evanlarkin (307) - Northfield, Minnesota, USA - APR 26, 2013
Pours a soft, clear yellow-orange with minimal head. Smell is intensely hoppy, featuring loads of lemony citrus and a reasonable malt backbone. The taste? While I was expecting a very hop-forward beer, what this turns out to be is a surprisingly balanced drink. Pine flavors up front with some citrus, but a strong presence of malt throughout. As the malt flavor dries up, a dry, citrus rind finish rounds things out. Very very good.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 26, 2013
22oz bottle, Enjoy by 5-17-13: pours a clear deep golden with a clingy-lacing white head. Aroma abounds with fresh grapefruit and piny hops and some sweet light caramel malt. Has a clean lightly sweet body with lots of fresh resiny hop flavor and good bitter balance before a drier crisp bittersweet finish. Well-balanced, true to style and enjoyable.
