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.

12.13.13 bomber $5.49 bought on sale at Binnys (3rd one ;-) ) As of 12.7.13 they still had a few cases left. Stone definitely ramped up production on this one for it was readily available. Couldnt believe it, as every other edition before was so hard to find/get. Pours a cloudy golden color with a 1 finger head that settles quickly leaving a thin white ring and little sticky, bubbly islands floating about. Big pine notes followed by some malt & biscuit aromas on the nose. Great balance of malt, then a nice bite of hop bitterness. Awesome brew.

09.13.13 version. Pours a two finger off-white head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Light hazy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Grapefruit hop nose and flavor is nearly sweet grapefruit and some pineapple, lingering grapefruit aftertaste. Higher ABV is hidden. $6.99 for a 22oz bottle from Julios Liquors Marlboro, MA.

This review is for the 12-13-13 because I was just recently talked in to rating beer. Ive had all of them and this is the best one to me. Draft. Yellow color with a white head. Floral and citrus hop light in the nose. Bright bitter pine hop flavor. These are getting better.

fletchfighters (1507) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2013
on tap at Sheraton 4 points LAX 12.13 enjoy by Clear Orange color, short white head. Some visible carbonation. Bold nose. Lots of pine and grapefruit. Very forwards and aggressive. Full of resin and bitterness. Touches of aspirin and a bit chalky though. Nice but needs more balance

Oregon_butcher (60) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Golden yellow color, good IPA carbonation, smells pungent of simcoe or summit, sweet dank like garlic. Taste is overwhelming dank hops to an excess. I love a hoppy beer but this is alittle odd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DenverLogan (1205) - LA, California, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Batch 8-2-13...on tap at Lowry Beer Garden. Pours golden with small head. Aroma of pine hops. Moderate carbonation and big mouthfeel. Flavors of piney hops, sweet malt. Flavors of candy cane, grapefruit, citrus. Overall very tasty, bright, like an Altoids mint with a touch of alcohol and pine sap.

ajtrupp (340) - Broomfield, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2013
I don't know if it's marketing or if it's legit, but this just tastes super fresh. Clean hops hit strong, but after 3 drinks it's surprisingly mellow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mon oeil regarde cette robe qui a la couleur dun lingot dor. Le col mousseux qui est timide qui se transforme rapidement en anneau. Une dentelle tente de saccrocher. Un nez fabuleusement Stone. De lpinette, de la pruche et dautres conifres. Du jus de pamplemousse, des fruits no-zlandais et des chalotes franaises. Un bouquet longuement floral et une base malte que je prfre oublier. Sur mes papilles, uneattaque frache et bien orchestre. Des houblons juteux. Un concentr darbres et darbustes inflorescence en cnes. Un ensemble complexe de canaux rsinifres. Des plantes potagres, du miel de litchi, des fruits exotiques et un soupon dpices orientales. Un alcool compltement dissimul, dangereux et salopard. Au palais, un corps superbement structur. Une texture huileuse. Des bulles trs fines qui agissent rapidement. Une finale trs intense, vgtale, florale, rsineuse, fruite et poivre. Wow! Une vritable leon houblonne. Certainement et indniablement, pour moi, dans les hautes sphres du style.
