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.

4-20-14. Bottle, one week old. Pours a pretty hazy orange with a nice dense foam that leaves a thick lace. The nose is bright and citrusy with a huge load of grapefruit and a fair amount of pineapple, lemongrass, clover, mango, pine and toast. Taste is all Stone. Big, bright, juicy and really, really fresh with massive amounts of grapefruit, tons of fresh oily hop, lime, orange, grass, piney resin, pineapple, papaya, dry cracker, a touch of alcohol and a not so subtle hint of skunky closet funk. On the lighter side of medium body with a tangy slickness that finishes with zesty grapefruit and resiny hop oiliness. Pretty great DIPA.

out of a bottle on 3/21/14. pours clear light bronze with some head that goes away. Aroma is pungent earthy hops with em floral notes, some sweetness, and un-ripened melon. Taste is huge earthy hop burst without the harsh bitterness, mouthfeel is sticky and gummy. finish is long and flavorful throughout.

wade1point0 (69) - Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Smells amazing, strongly of grapefruit. On tap at tap n handle. Clear yellow gold color. Had after raging bitch and it tasted good, not overwhelming bitter to me. Long lingering fruit and herb finish.

stoutnick (835) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2014
Enjoy by 04.20.14 bottle from Good Beer, NYC. Golden peach. Aroma is floral hops - smells promising! Taste is hops, syrup and pine. Mild fruitiness. Lovely, just lovely. Finish is mildly sweet but not sticky at all - wonderfully clean on the palate. You just keep coming back for more. Not as wow! as Ruination but far more sessional. The presence of the 9.4% abv is almost totally absent. Great beer.

Bright nose and flavor. A little thin on the body for the ABV but the great fresh flavors make up for it!

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2015 [5299-20130428] Tap. Orange citrus aroma has a nice hoppy sap note. Slightly hazy, light orange body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head and lattice lacing. Bitter orange rind and citrus juicy sap flavour. Medium-full body is fairly bitterly boozy. Delicious, very drinkable. (8/4/8/4/18) 4.2
(@ The Whiskey Room, Burlington, VT; Enjoy By 5.17.13)

[7153B-20150314] 1pt6floz bottle. Floral eggy orange hops aroma. Clear, bright orange body with a quick foamy white head. Bitter orange and citrus peel flavour is pretty chewy. Medium body. Very tasty, and Pi day gives it an extra point. (7/4/8/4/15) 3.8
(Enjoy By 3.14.15)
