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.

raphael (1193) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Such pine aroma kept barley in check by caramel, & shadowed by thr musky fresh hop greenness. solid yellow with modest white head, a honeyish weight in the mouth, a little flat. flavors of oast, lumber, lemon, alcohol. quick warming, full flavored finish

A really refreshing ipa. Crisp and clean. The aroma palate was full of fresh hoppy goodness.

Jjg226 (71) - Staten Island, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Pours a golden amber with a quickly dissipating, two finger head that settles into a spotty cap that lasts throughout. Decent lacing. Great floral aroma up front with nice sweet malt notes in the background. Hoppy bitterness hits the front of the tongue followed by a torrent of pine resin and grapefruit rind. Sweet malt backbone balances the hops nicely. Mouthfeel is where this ale shines; smooth and easy drinking for the ABV. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Overall, this is an outstanding example of an Imperial IPA, extremely well crafted and balanced. Kudos Stone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lubiere (13193) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2013
A hazed golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, interesting mix of catty hops and citrusy pulp with light sulfur notes. In mouth, a smooth biscuit malt with floral and catty hops, resinous and intense, but not a five.

A beer, I have been wanting to try...that doesn't come along so much anymore. I'm not saying it's hyped up but I love fresh IPA. The concept was something I fell in love with the date is 8/24/13 the bottle says to drink by 9/13/13. Look it's expressive in appearance, copper bright body almost an orange layered hue to the beer with cream almost white head forms thick. Fine speckled lacing I'm again in love, why does this have to be the beer, one which sells out quicker than stores can get it in. Aroma has bright grapefruit, citrus notes that expel any notion of less than fresh hops. It's actually an explosion of hops withheld in a room of fresh hops, earthy qualities are dumbed down by bright citrus. Each gulp goes down smoother than the next, beautiful beer I'm drinking each sip thinking where is the next drink coming from that's a strong hook that radio DJs look for in every overproduced song on the market. This is not overproduced it's just the best quality beer of every quality IPA you have ever tried. Slick oily mouthfeel leads to expressive carbonation levels soft and excellent between every twist and turn get me a case and I will drink it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - AUG 24, 2013
the first time I have ever seen enjoy by in mass. Fresh is best with IPA. CLear amber color with well defind head. Aroma is pine resin and a dankness funk. Just touches of flower and citrus. Taste has more grain malt balance to it. Hints of the alcohol level but knocked back easy. Hope they continue to distribute here.

This beer was the best of the night by a wide margin. Had on tap at MacGregors. Plenty of explosive hop notes in the nose to choose from. I dont do great at spotting them in a bar setting but there was pine and citrus notes for sure. Hefty full palate. Clean dark gold. Goblet. Tast was heavy with the hop elements, obscuring the alcohol, does have a fresh clean feel, and tons of hops in the finish. Really enjoyable.

hopmelt (197) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Pours clear golden, half finger thick off white head. Aroma tropical, pine, floral hops, sweet caramel, bready malt. Taste dank citrus, tropical, pine, floral hops, not overly bitter, bready, caramel malt in the background, bit of onion/garlic spice, no alcohol presence. Mouth feel is fuller medium, low carbonation, resinous hop astringency, classic Stone dry finish. Overall excellent, hop is definitely the star here, fantastically crafted beer, enjoyed 14 days after bottled on date!
