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.

Silphium (3193) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Draft (2.14.14) at Taps 25, Lansing. Hazy medium orange body with a medium dense off-white head. Spicy, musky nose, catty with skunky cannabis or wild sweet cicely. Super-catty, medicinal, spicy, leafy body with anise/licorice and orange peel. Weird and potent.

22 oz bottle. Enjoy by 02.14.14. This one poured a glowing golden color and crowned by a small head of frothy foam that quickly washes away to streaks of lace. The aroma is very typical west coast IPA with notes of tropical fruits, mango, grapefruit, and orange to go with some pine resin. The hops are balanced by nicely by a toasted caramel malt base. The flavor follows suit with tropical fruits, grapefruit, and orange hops dominating, but balanced nicely by the biscuit and toasted caramel malts. The hops are still the star though. Medium bodied and incredibly smooth and easy to drink with just the right amount of carbonation and without the heavy feeling a double IPA can bring. The finish is nice and dry with a lingering hop bitterness that just begs another sip. This is just very light and easy to drink for the high abv which is dangerous for sure. Another winner for Stone and a stellar west coast style IPA to boot.

blankboy (7482) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
[Bottle (660ml)] Pours a slightly hazy copper-gold with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Lovely hoppy aroma, fruity, citrusy, piney, a bit hempy and resiny -- a bit sweet as well. Flavour of those same aforementioned hop notes, also a bit sweet and alcohol is pretty well hidden. Moderate to big bitter finish. So easy to drink for such a high abv. Medium bodied. A great DIPA.

Everything a double IPA should be and all of it done well. From the pour through the finish it rates high across the board. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerZombies1 (37) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 15, 2014
American double / Imperial IPA 9.4% ABV APPEARANCE: Poured a brilliant warm honey color, with a pillowy off white head. Head dissipated fairly quickly leaving nice lacing patterns. AROMA: If a grapefruit and a pine tree had a baby it's skin would smell like this! Lots of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, guava. Sweet malts and a bit of herbal slices come through. TASTE: followed the nose incredibly well. Fruit comes out very nicely followed with sweet maltiness and then the hops hit you. They hit hard and in your face. Bitterness is very present but begins to mellow in a great biscuity flavor on the backend. MOUTHFEEL: medium plus on the carbonation, prickly and tingly in the tongue. Slightly oily with a medium body. This is almost to easy to drink. OVERALL: I myself am a big fan of Stone, this IPA gave me everything I look for in a solid west coast outing. Delicious grapefruit & pine bomb with high ABV and high IBU that is easy drinking. RATING: 4.5/5 Zombie Heads! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light gold in color with a white foamy head. Grassy, citrus aroma. Taste is grass and lemon rind, with a little bit of sweetness that added a nice balance. Great IPA.
