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.

Berard (636) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Draft. 11/12/13 pours pumpkin orange with light white head. Nice hop aroma with mild carbonation. Nice floral hop flavors with decent complexity. Very tasty while you can get it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jdb288 (584) - Wake Forest, North Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Exactly what you expect in a stone release - aggressive, bitter hops (although not as bitter this time around) and lasting, astringent finish. A medium-heavy punch of hop flavor with some citrus and pine accent. Not the best, not the worst. Drinkable.

maekchu (3613) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle. 11.12.13 vintage imbibed on 11.02.13. Sampling session at Leftys. Medium pin/citrus blend aroma. Medium straw color. Balanced initial / hops dominate, with a light sweet caramel backing / finish extends the sweetness. Medium body. Good enough, but taste is so reminiscent of many another Stone IPA style.

zeke626 (460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle, version 11-12-13. Pours a clear, coppery gold body with a yellowish white head. Aroma of citrus, floral, and pine hops with some sweet caramel malts. Strong grapefruit citrus and pine hop taste with some sugary sweetness near the end. Strong bitter note throughout. A little oily and somewhat sticky on the palate. Peppery, bitter finish.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4806) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 3, 2013
At a tasting at KyotoLeftys place. 11-12-13 version. A clear deep gold with a minimal head & medium body but somewhat oily. The aroma was pine, resin & dank. The taste is straight up bitter, pine, dank, boozy. Well made but too bitter for me, not my cup of tea.

troupos40 (67) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 2, 2013
11/12/13, pours from bottle orange with lively carbonation. Citrus and pine aromas. Reminded me of Hoptimum, but was slightly less hoppy and more drinkable. I really enjoyed this DIPA.

TylerGreenDC (845) - - NOV 2, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 On draft, 11-12-13 version. Aroma and flavor of stone fruit (mangoes with some if the tartness of apricot) with enough pine resin to keep it from being sweet. Finishes with a pale bit of thin chocolate malts. Pretty awesome.

KyotoLefty (9640) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 2, 2013
11-12-13 version. Nice orange and resin nose, a bit old school, dank, stinky mangos. Very piny. Sweet, resinous, nice citrus, a bit too sweet and thick. Damn nice, though. Less interesting than I had hoped.

I had the Enjoy By 05.17.13 and to be honest it was just good. Id heard a ton about this beer and was really looking forward to this brew. Poured a bomber into a tulip, and the head dissipated rather quickly. The color was a perfect pale gold, and the head was a nice white/pale straw. The aroma didnt do much for me, a touch of spice, and sweet and earthy/flowery smell. The taste isnt as sweet as I was expecting and, although I appreciate west coast IPAs, this one didnt really have the malt character to balance out the appreciable hops. After all of that being said, I did enjoy this Enjoy By, and will probably pic up one of them again, but likely in late fall if they put one out around then.

Golden pour with minimal head. Aroma is fruity and resinous. Flavors of grapefruit and pine.
